Such tranquility looking towards the Ngong Hills, in contrast to the busy capital just half an hour away. Flora and fauna abundant, food excellent and service ever present and responsive without being oppressive. Great spot for breakfast.

This was my second stay this year and this time was wonderful, I stayed 3 days and really relaxed. The house is set in beautiful Langata a leafy suburb of Nairobi, the hosts are very generous and you interact with the family warthogs.. This is a wonderful place to recoup after long flight before setting off on a safari. They... More

My husband and I arrived at Hogmead, along with 4 friends who were traveling with us, and we were very impressed with the ambiance of this lovely manor house. We were greeted warmly, and after a welcome drink, we were shown to our spacious and very attractive room on the second floor. We had been traveling for two days and... More

We stayed for one night and our rooms were clean and roomy with a comfortable bed. The lodge is staffed by very pleasant folk in what seemed like a remnant of colonial Africa. The lodging is not that far out of town, but the 20km from the airport took our driver 3 hours to traverse with the bad traffic and... More

The hotel/house was very pleasant with a lovely garden, lovely rooms and bathroom. The food is a set menu - easily accommodated my non fish preference at the last minute and... More

We ended a 10 day safari in Kenya with a day room at the Hogmead Hotel in Karen, Nairobi whilst we waited for our evening flight home. The publicity offers great hospitality in an ideal setting but we hardly recognise the hotel from some of the reviews on this site. The main hotel and lounge area were spacious and beautifully...

We had the most amazing time at Hogmead, especially after such a long safari throughout Kenya. My husband and I have had the privilege to of been able to travel extensively across the world, and I must say that there is no place like Hogmead. We were exhausted from the constant on-the-move holiday that just sitting at the Bar, watching... More
