A lovely surprise, better than expected. The checkin and reception was pleasant, the rooms are spacious, breakfasts good and the staff friendly. The gardens are wonderful and the pool is inviting. I felt secure in the grounds. Excellent value for money. I look forward returing.

We stayed here for one night, on 19 January 2015, before flying out on safari- absolutely stunning hotel. Lovely grounds, fabulous themed rooms- we stayed in the 'safari' room. The staff could not have treated us better, really lovely people. They knew that we were getting married on safari so treated us to a private meal in front of a... More

I thought this place was beautiful. The room I had was immense, and I could fit a whole class of students in the bathroom. I was impressed with everything about the House of Waine. The staff, the food, and the decor were exceptional. The bed was luxury, had the best night's sleep.

We loved this amazing place. It is close to all the attractions in Karen. Everything about this establishment is well thought through for your comfort and enjoyment. The rooms have everything you need and beautifully decorated. Serene surroundings - the gardens and birds are a delight. Despite the pool being heated it was still a bit too cold for us... More

House of Waine is located in a lovely residential area in Karen. The service is excellent - very warm and welcoming. You will feel great comfort if you are just traveling in from distant countries.

Wonderful welcome by the team and the rooms were very well presented, quiet & comfortable. Distance from Wilson airport is short & seamless journey. Due to the boutique nature of HofW breakfast is not a buffet & is served - this is somewhat limiting and is not as preferable as having a small buffet to choose items from, a selection... More
