We actually chose this place for our last 2 nights in Kenya from the favourable reviews on this site. And I have to admit that we certainly weren't disappointed. The room was spacious and the bathroom clean and tidy. Breakfast and (optional) dinner were delicious and I have to say a big thank you to Hannah at this point for... More

As always we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and look forward to your return. Regarding the road we are pleased that the new Nairobi Southern Bye-pass construction is well underway and will mean fast access to both airports as well as greatly reducing traffic. 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! Hannah always provided us with amazing food and one day when we come home she even sowed up a rucksack that had broke (and did such a good job we couldn't even tell which strap had been fixed!)

We traveled for our 11 day Kenya to Tanzania safari with my family, we loved all the arrangements made by one Thomas Didige of Affable Tours and Safaris, he recommended this lodge, I must say it was exactly what we were expecting, friendly staff, very nice food. I would recommend it to anyone any-day.

We travelled for 3 weeks in Tanzania and Kenya last year with our twin boys at the age of 3. We generally stayed at 3-4 star hotels but Kikuyu Lodge was our favourite of all the places we stayed. The reason we liked it so much was the friendliness and helpfulness of Trevor and Hannah who both made us feel... More

We stayed for several nights and used the Lodge as a base. We were extremely well looked after as a pensioner couple looking for both rest and excursions. Trevor arranged what ever transport was needed and sorted out any difficulties. Hannah cooked great meals, both local and international and covered all other housekeeping arrangements. This is more like sharing someone's... More

It is always a pleasure to meet guests and find out about their particular interest.

We were on a two week self drive safari. Trevor's contacts in sorting a 4X4, his local knowledge, and willingness to help, with everything from loaning us spare fuel cans, tools, and his personal Sat' Nav', to advice on routes, made our holiday in Kenya the best to date. Staying at the Kikuyu Lodge Hotel is not the sterile, insulating... More
