Stayed for one night post safari and on our way to giraffe manor and again as a day room before a late flight back to the UK. Rooms small and motel like, comfortable and clean but nothing to write home about. I didn't notice the noise at all that other reviews put. It has some positives - the outdoor drinking... More

Overnight after landing on the way to a safari. Modern hotel near the airport with comfortable room and good buffet breakfast. Nice, friendly and helpful staff. Only issues, which were not that bad, were very very noisy AC and the fact that late night the bathroom water supply was cut... Back in the morning though Would not have a problem... More

Very noisy rooms. Prepare to be kept awake all night by banging doors as cleaning takes place 24 hrs due to airline crews. Rooms are not sound proofed in any way. Nice view over park. Food acceptable but not excellent.

We stayed here on our way to a safari holiday. Very comfortable room and excellent breakfast. The staff were very helpful and we were able to get breakfast before the official opening time. A typical business hotel, no complaints.

Courtesy of BA, my flight was cancelled and I was treated to a night in this hotel. The hotel was excellent, superior and good clean quality rooms. I had the kebabs which were superb. This hotel looks out onto the game reserve but as it was a night stop there wasn't much to see. I would very much recommend this... More

Amazing experience. Stayed there for 3 weeks. Superb food, ambience, birdwatch. The Rooms are pretty decent. Good room service. Breakfast is awesome! The indoor souvenir shop though a bit expensive is a good one stop shop for mementos. The national park facing rooms are really good. You should be able to see a lot of birds and a few animals...

Close to the airport and avoids the horrific traffic jams of central Nairobi. Some rooms have gorgeous views the game park. Pool is small, but charming. Well-equipped gymnasium. Food is tasty. What stops me giving this 5/5 is the staff: some of the staff are polite and attentive, but some staff (particularly the night staff) look like they couldn't care... More

Stayed here for one night during our honeymoon waiting to go to the masai mara the next day. Must say that it far exceeded our expectations. Beautiful location looking out over the national park where we saw lots of wildlife just from our room. We had complementary wine and cake in our room which was lovely and a complementary arrival...

This hotel borders the national park and frequents guests with some awesome visits from the wildlife park incl. Giraffe, gazelle, buffalo, and sometimes even lion. The patio has a great view and pool bar area. The restaurants are great all round. The bars inside. The rooms are good, clean, and offer great services. The staff as expected is very friendly...

Stayed here for a business trip, liked the experience. As most hotels in Africa expensive, but beautiful location. Staff well trained, rooms awesome. I will stay here again. Close enough to airport and city, nice events venue.
