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

Sitting down on the table we had to wait more than 30 min to get our orders. after which the drinks and starters took so long. Asking for jikos was a hastle. Main course took nearly an hour... 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

The restaurant and rooms are cozy and decorated in the most amazing way. Walking around the grounds is like being transported into a magical garden. The rooms are big and modern with everything you could need. The food is the best I have had in Nairobi and the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming.

This lodge has a nice feel to it with interesting glass artwork scattered about the place, works of art & bits & pieces to enjoy throughout the establishment. The staff are friendly willing to bend over backwards for you (cooking us a late meal even though the kitchen was closed). The rooms are clean & serviced everyday to a high... More

An absolutely brilliant place to stay, friendly staff, good food and drink, peaceful surroundings and stunning rooms. Rob and Georgina are great hosts, nothing is too much of a problem for them. I would definately recommend Karen Country lodge to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing stay.

Enjoyed a wonderful few days at Karen Country Lodge. Excellent food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed lolling by the pool and strolling in the gardens in the evening. I would definitely recommend KCL to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday and a fab time.

Went there with my friends for the weekend and had a great time. The staff are super friendly and the service is really good. It's in a nice peaceful area called Karen and as soon as me and my friends got there we felt relaxed. You won't be disappointed.
