The Lodge makes you feel being on Safari in the middle of Karen! Lovely Cottages set near a small lake give you a very relaxed and quiet atmosphere! You got a verandah, small kitchenette, fireplace with comfortable Sofa, SAT TV, and a stylish bathroom- I did not miss anything! In the well maintained gardens with old trees you can spot... More

Entering the lodge you feel like you have stepped back in time, into colonial times. The character of this place is great. The cottages are fabulous - so spacious, each with own veranda, massive bathrooms, living rooms and small kitchen. Wish I could have stayed longer! Lovely restaurant and grounds. Reception was very helpful as were all the staff. Lovely... More

Sorry I can't give you 5 but a few small changes would get you full marks. There are beautiful large apartments with cosy open fire for cold days which I loved. The food is good and friendly service. The mosquitos apparently don't carry malaria at higher altitudes like Nairobi, however I still don't like being bitten by them or being... More

A little belated as I stayed here on my first night in Kenya in January but I would thoroughly recommend it for somewhere to stay close to Nairobi but away from the city. From the booking right through to check out arrangements were excellent. The accommodation is fabulous and felt very secure. In the morning the set up was well... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights after safari and before our flight home. What a wonderful spot to relax. The main room in the cottage was massive and comfortable and there was a huge luxurious bathroom to match. I loved the stained glass panel and pieces around the grounds. With great and friendly service, what more could you... More

A 3 day business trip in Nairobi was made by this wonderful escape from the city. Arrived after midnight and we we met by Paul who had a hot meal ready for us and then showed us to the amazing cottages. The cottages are beautifully finished with great attention to design and luxury. Fantastic food, helpful attentive staff and amazing... More

As soon as you step foot in Karen Country Lodge you are made to feel welcome!! The staff are so friendly and helpful!! The rooms are what you would expect from a 5* luxury property, all set around a beautiful lake! I had the opportunity to have a sunset drink with the owner by the lakeside and he is very... More

Stayed here for a weekend in July 2013 for a change from the other hotel I was living in during my time in Nairobi. The cottage was just lovely-lots of room (bed & separate sitting area), fireplace and a small kitchenette (fridge and hot water kettle). The bathroom was to die-for, with a claw-foot tub, which I regret not using... More

Gorgeous, cosy rooms - we stayed in a cottage. Friendly staff and fantastic owners - we really felt at home; the staff and owners couldn't help us enough! V relaxing and beautifully appointed rooms and gardens. Imaginative and fun decor in dining room; great location. Definitely will go again! Lucy
