Two great stays inside a week and both well near perfect once again. Food, including breakfast - served a la carte - exceeded my expectations and while the Egg Benedict was, well, more of an Egg Sovereign, the chef agreed to rename it, all the food was mouth watering. Internet worked, and fast, everything in my suite was in ship... More

This property is a wonderful place to get away from the congestion of Nairobi. It is one hour, $60 taxi drive from the airport (at rush hour it takes 2 hours). The photos of the property and rooms are accurate. The rooms are very large and beautiful. This property has the potential to be a ‘5 star’ but lacks attention... More

The area is a tea farming area.huge chunks of tea plantations.it has the good rooms and surrounding is calm and quiet.security is maximum and food an drinks are good.one day is never enough because you need to be taken around to see some of the individual farmers...

Very warm and friendly service. The room has a lot of space. But far from Narobi city - at least 15Km - a totallly different place from what it is on google map. When there is a trafic jam, it takes at least 45 mins to get into the city center. It would be much more convinient if one rents... More

From the moment we arrived at the Sovereign Suites, I was just absolutely impressed with the very warm welcome of the staff. My Business Partner and myself felt a sense of charm, the interior aesthetics fully clad with rich wood made it feel even more as though we were in the outskirts of Scotland, in a castle owned by rich...

Absolutely a wonderful place. We were a family of 5 and had booked 1 D Room and 1 Triple Room. After the warm welcome at the reception we were taken to our rooms. The rooms were fantastic, spacious. Huge mega bath. Practically we had one wing to ourselves with a private balcony and a common sitting area with luxurious sofas.... More

With a weekend to spare I headed into the Limuru Hills to sample the Sovereign Suites, now that the property has been moved from building and refurbishment to the soft opening stage proper and is firmly in the stable of Sun Africa Hotels.

I passed by Sovereign Suites last week and loved it! The predominantly wooden interior did make the place special. "The palatial building of this ‘boutique’ hotel residence is very different from any ordinary hotel, in particular when it comes to size. There are 11 spacious suites, 2 family suites and 2 presidential suites with walk in closets, furnishings and bathroom... More

When I last visited the Sovereign Suites in June, it was clearly very much a work in progress but with very promising elements already there to see for the trained eye.

The Sovereign Suites will only open in October, but I managed to take a sneak preview, being amongst other things a travel writer. A former top of the pops residence is being converted into a 16 all suites residence, with full service of course, and a couple of 2 and 3 bedroom apartments looked after too by the staff already...
