I had to make sure the Fairview got the same treatment as their amazing sister hotel, Country Lodge, so I'm posting my comments on their page as well (see below). The ONLY reason they got "Very Good" and not "Excellent" is because I didn't stay in their rooms so can't personally attest to the quality. But everything else (dining, event... More

We stayed at the Fairview for three nights following our safari in the Masai Mara. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. More importantly, the grounds are beautiful, and there is a nice choice of restaurants if you're too tired to go out. We would definitely choose to stay there again if we are passing through Nairobi.

I've always liked the Fairview but now it is even better under new management. Wonderful smiles everywhere, great service, comfortable rooms. I found the security systems thorough. Especially nice are the choice of at least three restaurants on-site.

We last stayed at the Fairview in February 1976 and enjoyed our stay. We looked forward to renewing our acquaintance with the Fairview and were not disappointed. We had a large, comfortable room in the main block, which has been tastefully upgraded to modern standards. The staff were extremely helpful and organised a day trip of Nairobi for us which... More

As usual, a delight to be able to stay here in the most beautiful surroundings. Had dinner by the poolside and on querying why they never seemed to have cauliflower, off went the waiter to see Chef and came back to confirm my veg of the day would be cauliflower - great customer service. Hope to be back again soon.

The Fairview Hotel offers an oasis of peace and tranquility in the middle of the city. It has truly beautiful garden and offers something of a botanical experience with nametags on most plants and trees. The rooms are perfectly clean and each of them is different in its own way with beautiful woodwork. The hotel has a good gym too... More

Classic style, with great facilities. It was a little oasis in the middle of such a busy city! The pool area is great for meetings and for some downtime and the staff are all really friendly and helpful. Facilities are excellent, with a choice of restaurants from fine dining to pizza. We enjoyed the pool cafe during the day and... More
