The room was very nice decorated and prepared. We could hear the river during night which was quite relaxing. Very friendly staff which teached us some swahili vocabulary. In the bar they gave us for free some cashews and peanuts which had been cooked by them minutes before and which were delicious. Nothing negative to comment. Great place for the... More

Beautiful grounds and loved looking out for monkeys. Great food all around especially the pizzas and the breakfast! The rooms were spacious and comfortable and the bath was brilliant! Enjoyed...

We had about 24 hours here before starting our safari. We were given a friendly welcome and shown to our very nice rooms. There were lovely fresh roses in our rooms and very comfortable and stylish beds. We spent the day relaxing in the grounds watching the lively monkeys in the trees above us. At lunch we had pizzas from... More

Wonderful welcome, spectacular room - out of a travel magazine - exceptional staff. Consistent hot water. Food was so so, but fine. The massage: PERFECT. It's an especially good hotel after a safari or any grueling activity. A real oasis. I'll go back for sure. BONUS: a nice souvenir shop.

We used Rivertrees as a single night stop off en route to safari. We were very fortunate and stayed in the large Riverhouse that was breathtaking. The standard lodge rooms weren't as luxurious but were still very nice. The grounds by the river were lovely. Staff very friendly and helpful and the food was very good. Poolsmall but well kept...

Great to see monkeys swinging through the trees, lovely food and attentive waiters who taught us lots of Swahili words and phrases. The kids loved it too although they thought the pool was a bit chilly!

Stayed here for one night on my family Safari holiday. Was definitely one of the best places we stayed! The beds were very comfortable and the stone bath was great! The food was good, with a lot of choice compared with other places we stayed. Would highly recommend this place!
