This is a luxury hotel suitable for both top level business meetings and holiday. The hotel offers a combination of rooms and cottages. I have stayed in both rooms and cottages and prefer the either the rooms or cottages close to the main hotel reception. There are old cottages that are a little bit dated close to the forest where...

The Hotel is very beautiful with expnasive space that can accomodate anyone looking for anything in a hotel. Good for couples, children, family and organisations retreats. Very disciplined staff, good meals but the place can be chilly, so be prepared with warm clothes.

Unfortunately the Fairmont Mount Kenya did not live up to my expectations. I travelled with my mom and 3 children (ages 7 and under) and found that the staff were not engaged at all and we personally had to seek out activities to do with the children - they did enjoy the swings and jungle gym. We love walking but... More

Perhaps it was my fault for not reading the 400 + reviews, but my partner and I were looking for a quiet time looking at Mount Kenya. While the hotel is beautiful, well maintained, and has extremely well trained and friendly staff, this is not a place for couples looking for peace and solitude (unless you go for a hike).... More

This hotel is very attractive; has beautiful views, lovely grounds and good rooms. I saw good because they are well appointed and even have an active fireplace. However, the ventilation system isn't adequate and the rooms smell smoky even if you chose not to use the fireplace. The toilets didn't flush consistently and the bathroom didn't drain very well. If... More

We stayed just for a night at the end of the. Since we were 4 of us, they upgraded us to the William Holden cottage, with two rooms and a shared common room. The cottage was very comfortable, and the common room (with a cozy fireplace) was great for hanging out The entire property is breathtaking, with large gardens and... More

i am suprised that i have never written a review of Fairmont Nanyuki. I have stayed at this amazing hotel a couple of times now and had a conference there as well. Unlike many hotels around Kenya i think Fairmont adapted to both the kenyan and foreign tourists excellently. The golf course is small (all par 3) but amazing. The... More

Arrived to the property from a long road trip and at that time, there was a wedding that was just starting. As I headed to the reception, they informed us that we can get a tour of the room and have our luggages taken from the car, however one of us wanted some tea. So she got out of the... More

I had a fantastic stay at the property end of May. The rooms and banquet area afford stunning views of the mountain, the lush grounds are a treat to roam about and the banquet spread is delectable ! The rooms are very thoughtfully decorated and the staff everywhere seemed very attentive.

Having moved into this location in the 4 months, I wondered what could make Sunday afternoons a bit more spectacular. then wow I bumped into a list of to do from my previous guest coordinator. Tell you what, that has been the best suggestion I have made for my guests in the recent past. Spending entire week working down in... More
