Sitting outside in the patio with the beautiful park in front f you is really an enjoyable moment. Neither the service or the food is worth a journey, but if you are hungry and passing by it is absolutley no mistake to take a break here. One certainly gets the impression that the place has passed its peak.

This hotel was built in the 1920'ies, and has an atmosphere of history. The hotel is placed in a big park. The buildings and the rooms are magnificent. There is a big terrace overviewing Mount Kenya. The Boy Scout founder Sir Baden Powell lived here the last years of his life and is buried in Nyeri. Queen Elisabeth and many... More

WE spent two nights at this historical hotel together with a big group of friends for a major celebration. The hotel is very Pleasanton, the Roms spaniols and many with a terrasse facing Mt. Kenya (only to be seen in the morning, however). The buffet dinner and lunch as such buffets go: OK but not very inspiring. There were few... More

This hotel will do but there are much better. The service is a bit lame and it is run down. The restaurant manager told our team one thing and then said something totally different. We basically end d up having to pay for things he said were included and was persistent about saying he never said what he did in... More

The buffet menu indicated that it would be an Italian lunch. It ended up being an local buffet which was devoid of variety, bland, semi-cooked baked chicken and stale dessert. Not worth a coin and I would discourage anyone in this area looking for a good lunch to avoid the place. Let me not even talk about the entertainment and... More

If you're looking for good food, great ambience and great service then this is the hotel for you. On a clear day it feels like Mt. Kenya is literally on the doorsteps of the hotel welcoming you to this hotel located in Nyeri Town 100 miles from Nairobi, Kenya's capital city. I regularly visit the hotel for a meal and... More
