I've been there a few times on business, the hotel is lovely with a wonderful garden that makes you forget you're in the middle of a huge African town being surrounded by trees and frog's singing. Rooms have kept a bit of the old colonial style and I like them, however they are in need of being refreshed, especially the... More

I love the Ambiance of this hotel. It's a homely environment, cool, peace and quiet. Even when Nairobi is so hot, the environment of this hotel is cool. The staff are friendly and experienced. The location of this hotel helped a lot given my mission and area of operation. Breakfast was fantastic especially my cappuccino every morning.

I spent three nights at this nice hotel attending a 3-day business training. The venue was excellent and so the buffet and the staff. Recommended for those lookin for a nice venue or also for those who love traveling with comfort.

Well situated just on the edge of Westlands area of Nairobi,so easy to get to this hotel is good value. A little disappointed that their parking is partly run by the County,they might think about validating that USD 3 cost for business guests. Otherwise a decent buffer served by attentive waiters in a quick and relaxed atmosphere by the pool.... More

Removed from the hectic streets of Nairobi, this place is a quiet oasis, with beautiful gardens and lovely rooms. The staff is courteous and helpful. I stayed for 10 days. Highly recommended. (Note that a boxed lunch is enough for at least 3 people. Just order room service at 5:30 am)

The hospitality of the employees at all levels (receptionist during check in and out) were satisfactory, breakfast and dinner services of your restaurant were to the standard, the compound was friendly. But the Wi-Fi in the room was not strong enough. Keep it up and I suggest to enhance the strength of the Wi-Fi in the rooms

I had a great time although the price were so high, and pricing for the local community could be reduce. the services were generally good and the meals were great. Supper could however be served in the rooms in prompt time as per clients request
