Wonderful hotel for a holiday getaway not far from Nairobi. The rooms are nice and clean. The buffet is good though the dessert could use some improvement in variety and quality. The hotel is located near several landmarks in the great rift valley. One area of urgent improvement is the sleep quality. In the days we slept at the hotel... More

I only stayed here for one night, just passing through the area. The room was very spatious and comfortable with all the necessary amenities. The dinner buffet was ok - but with quite limited vegetarian options (the grilled vegetables were excellent however). The staff at the hotel were all VERY friendly and helpful.

Had two unforgettable nights. Peaceful, beautiful, child friendly and wonderful staff. The food was also amazing and someone washed our car :) Just didn't understand why we couldn't have our own drinks around the bonfire which is away from the bar :(

A great place for relaxation for the entire family. We didn't know what to expect but the place turned to be a beautiful lodge with lots of space and activities for the children. The staff were also very polite and friendly and whenever we needed anything, they would help. Their meals are also good. We will definitely go back there... More

The reception upon arrival was very warm and welcoming, which was repeated at every opportunity, by the reception staff, in the dining, at the bar, in the gardens, etc. The location is excellent for a small lodge, and the flower gardens perfectly manicured, with water falls complimenting the dry barren grass lawns. The rooms were spacious and well finished. The... More

We were a large group, so I can only speak for my experience. The room was clean cosy and comfortable with everything working well except for the door key which sometime took quite a long time before opening the door. In addition, there are no bulb switches at the sides of the bed so you have to go to the... More
