My significant other and I have made it a tradition to spend 9th April at House of Waine, Nairobi for her birthday. The management and staff of House of Waine have exceeded our expectations for the last 5 years with their fantastic service, thoughtfulness, extra step, amazing foods and excellent decor. Without going into details of naming the excellent staff,... More

My wife and I stayed here one night on way to safari camps. Nice place, decent room, nice grounds with pool. Dinner only OK (below safari camp quality). Breakfast good. Didn't need staff, but don't remember them. No cocktail hour or particular ambiance. We were only people staying there, so maybe that was a factor.

This is a perfect get away place in Nairobi yet with a feel of "away from the city" hustles & bustles. Food is fantastic, service is on point & the facility very well maintained. Was there for our wedding anniversary & the staff went out of their way to make the stay worth remembering...Thanks & we will be back :)

We returned again to House of Waine in December 2013. Our flight from Zurich was late, the airport was in chaos because it was the night before the Independence Célébrations and there was a power cut - we were in the pitch dark. It was pouring with rain and thousands of people were waiting for friends/family to arrive at the... More
