This is a return visit to Country Lodge, after staying there in June 2010 during their construction of a new wing. I had the pleasure of staying in the new wing, and was very happy. The new wing's rooms are slightly smaller than the old wing. Their layout is generally the same as the old wing. And, when I say... More

We had a 12 hour layover at Nairobi airport and stayed at Country Lodge overnight. We arrived around 10 PM and the driver from the hotel met us as arranged. We got to the room and had a much needed shower and went in search of the bar or restaurant. Unfortunately, we were told everything was closed. This was around... More

Countrylodge, Owner at Country Lodge, responded to this review

Thank you very much for your feedback. Country Lodge is a limited food and beverage service hotel with no restaurants. This is indicated on our website and in every communication during the reservations process. However, there is a delivery service from the nearby restaurants until 11 pm. The room rate and the facilities offered are based on good value for... More

Stayed here in between safari and climbing mount kenya. The hotel is very clean and in a great location. It's walking distance into the centre, as well as being far away from the busy centre of Nairobi. Security is excellent here too. One night we stayed here there was no hot water due to a power cut. They contacted us... More

Stayed for almost five weeks and never had a problem. Rooms comfortable and adequately furnished.Large desk space giving good working area. It is an excellent business hotel with good food next door in the Fairview. Very high standard of cleanliness throughout the hotel. Superb WiFi giving excellent communications, internet and Skype. I could not fault Country Lodge and eventually gave... More

For me this is the best thing going in Nairobi. I have stayed here many times, alone and with groups, very efficient staff, easy booking via email, always clean, GREAT breakfast, lovely garden, great internet, safest location in Nairobi. Its peaceful and quiet too. Walk next door to all the restaurants at Fairview, which owns this place. Why stay anywhere... More

A new hotel concept for Nairobi - no frills, but not uncomfortable. No extras beyond the basics that are required to sleep, eat, wash and communicate over the internet. The hotel's fairly modernistic and functional, but quite pleasing (although somewhat cold and minimal). Modern, light, airy and yet very functional and sparse. I would not necessarily recommend this if you... More

Used to be my favorite. I have stayed here on and off over the last couple of years. Started well, but now I have mixed feelings about this place. Reservation is now a nightmare, and the staff make it look as though you've entered the kingdom to stay here. Last stay, I was left waiting at the airport for their... More

I used this hotel either side of a volunteering (and safari) stint in Kenya in August and September this year. Found the staff very helpful on all matters and really enjoyed the breakfast buffet (staff there friendly as well). As with everything in travel it really helps if you smile and are friendly too, then the other person opens up... More

I stayed in the Country Lodge before and after my safari to the Mara and thought it was quite clean and nice, but not necessary for our travels. The room was sterile, which is nice in Africa, but lacked character. It felt almost new-dorm like. The worst part about this hotel was their staff's attitude toward non-business guests and the...
