This was the first stop on our Safari. The lobby and restraurant were very nice. We loved the bar.... As for the rooms... They could use some serious remodeling.. No hot water for showers at times.. The WiFi in the lobby is sketching at best... The food was good. The people were very nice. The view on the mountain was... More

Quite dated and and in need of some sprucing up. The food was edible but very unimaginative. Breads was often stale. The staff were great. Internet was dead. Even paying by card was an issue with the gentleman having to walk out side with his device and hold it high up. Not their fault of course as it is remote.... More

This was the first lodge I stopped over during my week long safari in Kenya. The staff are polite and helpful ( like you see in all other lodges in Kenya). The reception and restaurant area are simple and more like a home setting. Food is delicious and the spread for break fast and dinner was reasonable while lunch we... More

Our first stop during a 7 day safari tour. Warm welcome, many hands to carry luggage when one trolley would suffice. Clean hotel with friendly staff and good food. Variety on offer may be limited for some, though for us it was satisfactory as we were more interested in the wildlife at the park. Somewhat distant from the park and... More

This was the first lodge my family and I stayed in during our Kenyan safari, so I didn't really know what to expect. Upon check-in, we were greeted by a traditional Maasai tribe leader (quite tall!) and were given a glass of fruit juice, before being taken to our rooms. There were a group of people waiting to take our... More

Nice hotel with beautiful and comfortable rooms. Staff is very helpful and kind. They don't push you to pay for all... The food is very good and various. The view is very very amazing with the Kilimanjaro just in front of the restaurant. Caution to people who are scared with monkeys. Some families live in the hotel abx they love... More

I recently spent two night here during a safari trip, the food and service were good. The Lodge and rooms need updating and a cote of paint. Internet was very limited, electric was turned off at night, all in all was ok but definitely not a 5 star place.

This lodge was a lovely surprise. Each room is a separate 'hut' with a double bed, mosquito net, ensuite with shower and outdoor veranda with chairs. They are set in beautiful gardens and there are loads of monkeys everywhere. There is a decent sized swimming pool but this seems to only be open in the daytime when most people will... More
