A wonderful and warm hotel and the perfect way for me to relax and prepare myself for my next assignment. All my travel requirements, including pick up and drop off at the airport, were arranged without fuss or ado and the driver, Paul, was prompt and knew the city well. The hotel is most welcoming. Intimate. Beautiful gardens. The local... More

I will stay at this lovely family-run lodge for my next visit & recommend it to my friends as everything about it was like home. The rooms were very clean, homely, peaceful & relaxing, set in a beautiful garden with lots of bird-life. It was excellent value & the friendly host & housekeeper, Trevor & Hannah, were keen to make... More

Nothing pleases my staff and I more than when a guests says that they thought of our hotel as their home whilst in Kenya. Safaris are wonderful but when you need to return to base you need somewhere relaxing and comfortable and that is our desire. Many thanks for your review. More

I have stayed with Trevor and Hannah a couple times now, and each time it feels as though I am returning home. The lodge is warm and welcoming, Hannah is always cooking delicious food (and more than willing to accommodate vegetarians or teach yummy recipes like chapati!), and Trevor is indispensable in helping organize incredible excursions for my family and...

Relaxing, excellent food and a great welcome. From meeting us at the airport to helping organise wildlife and scenic photographic trips. Trevor had good guides available for birdwatching and wildlife trips and then we went to the coast fishing with other contacts of his, staying in a cottage he arranged. He booked our internal flights and transfers. We are now... More

It is nice to know that after a guest has had faith to choose to stay with us, that we met their expectations.

Your review is much appreciated. More

We recently stayed here for a week and I honestly don't think Trevor or Hannah could have done anymore for us!
