My stay at the Quatermain was a pleasant one. Good attentive service, comfortable room just like the many previous visits. On the minus side, I hate those liquid soap dispensers and their wifi reception is the pits. Just not good enough! Their restaurant is great though with top quality dishes without exception.

If you are looking for an old style feel of a hotel, this is it. The outside is charming and not as clinical looking as otber hotel. Brownstone buildings and beautiful gardens. The place is well maintained and very very clean, staff is friendly. Good conference facilities. I was put in room 207, near the pool so it gets noisy... More

First stay for me but I will use them again. Strong business focus and extensive conferencing. Nice garden in the centre of property and rooms more than adequate. Has a bit of a colonial (Kenyan) feel to it and nice atmosphere. Bar busy and not particularly user friendly if there is a crowd. Staff willing and competent and it looks... More

I have recently stayed here for about 16 nights. The room I was allocated was a normal room right at the end of the corridor so it was wonderfully quiet and the bed was extremely comfortable. The room is quite large as is the bathroom and furnished in a fairly traditionally clean and acceptable manner. However one of the problems... More

We stayed here for 1 night in September and found this hotel to be very comfortable. Room was large as was the bathroom.
