Where else can you be a stones throw from a capital city and be able to enjoy a gin and tonic watching giraffe's at the bottom of the garden! Hogmead is like no where else I have ever been; a stunning setting for a very peacful and relaxed start and end to a safari holiday. Fantatsic food, beautiful bedrooms, brilliant... More

I was fortunate to stay with Jay, Venetia and the team at Hogmead during a recent business trip to Nairobi. My business hosts booked this residence and I am pleased they chose Hogmead! This place is absolutely fantastic, whether for business (or pleasure), and I don't think you'd feel more at home, while still having all the luxury and privacy... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this characterful, family-run residence in a tranquil area on the outskirts of Nairobi. Very comfortable, tastefully renovated rooms (master room especially spacious) provided a relaxed, elegant setting complemented by an extremely friendly and hospitable team who made us feel completely at home. Highlights were the highly attentive service, excellent home-cooked food, charming ambience and... More

What a fantastic retreat from the bustle of Nairobi. I slept better at Hogmead than I do back home in the states - the staff are attentive to every detail, and as many of the reviewers before me have mentioned, the venue is absolutely beautiful. Munching on three-course meals on the veranda with giraffes looking on is something to behold.... More

This was my first visit to Hogmead, I will not go anywhere else in the future. At Hogmead you find very personable service, excellent food, and the staff makes fool proof arrangements for you. Absolute above and beyond! Yes, one is truly treated like family. I arrived on short notice, with no concrete plans how to spend my time in... More

My third visit at Hogmead surpassed my first two and that was tough to do! This time I stayed in the amazing master suite which is beautiful in every way, particularly the bathroom which was larger than my first London flat! The hotel is small enough to feel like a family home and that is how you are treated too.... More

We had the warmest welcome at Hogmead. Our room was lovely, large, quiet. We had tea, then drinks with the owner, charming. It did feel like a home. Very relaxed. And then a really really good dinner on the veranda overlooking the garden. Lovely staff. The manageress was there to see us off with a breakfast picnic at 5:30 AM,... More

Without question the best accommodation in Nairobi and great value for money. We stayed here on a work trip for five days and the service, food, company was unbeatable. Highly recommended!

I stayed at the wonderful Hogmead several times during my trip to Kenya and when I first arrived Hogmead was the first place. I finally arrived at about 11pm and the manager Venetia was so kind, offered me dinner and I felt like it was a home. Her and Jay are wonderful and couldn't be more gracious. I actually left...

Unfortunately we only stayed one night as a rendezvous with friends traveling from different locations. We were fortunately to have lunch, dinner and breakfast, all were extremely good. The stuffed chicken at lunch was one of my favorite meals for our whole trip. Very mellow, clean, huge rooms and very nice staff. Stay here if you want a quiet recovery.
