The hotel location is at a wonderfully quite and beautiful area. .. The wait staff at breakfast were very good and attentive to our needs .... I would highly suggest this beautiful place to my couple friends.. The rooms were very clean and equipped with standard appliances... although in a hotel of such standers I would expect a hair dryer....... More

First trip to the Spa centre at this very stylish Hemmingways Hotels today. A slice of calm and relaxation out of town from busy Nairobi. Loved every minute of the treatments I had. Staff were lovely. Prices competitive. And the small touches, like fresh fruit and herbal tea, just added up to a wonderful experience. A delicious lunch with the... More

So was at Hemingways for one night, two days on a corporate retreat. Arrived early morn day 1 and check in was painless, and quick. Next meal was lunch, where they served a lousy buffet. Dinner was a la care, and I ordered the steak as did many others, having heard their steaks are good. The skinny piece of meat... More

Dear KulaRaha As you rightly mention you stayed with us on a conference package that includes a buffet lunch, the menus are themed and pre-agreed with our guests before the event. As you expressed disappointment with your menu we changed the pre-ordered menu for the next day and I am glad you approved of it the next day. Regards Simon... More

Hemingways is not the normal sort of place I stay at when I'm in East Africa - but in a really good way! From the tall airy ceilings, the sloping manicured lawns, the tasteful aesthetic, and the amazing food to the tight security and unobtrusive but attentive staff, this was the nicest place I've ever been to for a 4-day...

Lina and I would like to thank Johnson and all the staff helping to make Lina's stay on her birthday extra special. We were both thrilled about the numerous pleasant surprises. The mini conference with Lina's colleagues from several countries in Africa, which was the reason she spent her birthday there, was also a great success and all nine visitors... More

I say low expectations after our high expectations before going to hemming ways Watamu last year, where we had heard all sorts of good things about the place before going. So, again, we were expecting the same kind of feeling this time but, thank goodness, we were very pleasantly surprised. Location, layout, interiors, food, service were all exceptional. Nairobi needed... More

Stayed at Hemingways before and after a week in the Serengeti. Rooms were very nice and well furnished. Grounds were well kept and nicely manicured and food was very good. Service was somewhat inconsistent. It was very good on the arrival day stay but was botched on return visit - fruit setup in room was missing the fruit (by that... More

Hemmingways certainly have high standards not only in all their staff, who are professional and very helpful, but also in their rooms and services. We had a great suite that had all the amenities and more. The bathroom cum in-built wardrobe is a real luxury as are the surroundings. A lush garden with greenery all around. The piece and quiet...
