The property is awesome! Rooms are spacious and clean. Food is amazing-especially the Sunday Brunch-excellent! Check-in is a bit late especially when with kids and after a 3hr drive from Nairobi. Good.

Rooms were very spacious and clean and exceeded expectations. The service was first class and the staff treats everyone like royalty. The hotel provides some native entertainment around 6 PM each night and this is a good time to take photos. Would stay at this hotel again in a heart beat. There is a small animal orphanage at the entrance... More

Was lucky enough to spend a night at this amazing resort. Unfortunately the day we were there it rained but that didn`t stop us taking in the fantastic views, the animal orphanage and tasting the excellent food. I was passing through with my family coming down from Sweetwaters and Samburu lodge enroute to Turtle bay. This is the place I... More

Clearly a luxury resort with beautiful view facing Mount Kenya. Pity that only spent one night there. Definitely worth staying longer doing nothing but lingering around the mountain or resort area. Beautiful pool. Only weakness is that it receives large tour groups which really created a lot of noise.

We stayed for one night at the end of a busy week of different safari experiences. It was a fantastic ending to our short stay in Kenya. We were in one of the cottages overlooking the forest. Our room was adequate, however the hotel in general was superb. The dinner was lovely and the buffet breakfast and lunch choices were... More

Beautiful hotel and surrounding estate, gorgeous views of Mt Kenya, a really lavish experience though, as quite expensive, even for Kenya! Food was delicious though, service was average, but an overall great experience,good golf club too on site! worth a visit once!

This Hotel at the slopes of Mount Kenya and it dates back to the colonial period. The weather is cool most year round, there are frequent rain/showers. Nanyuki town is less than 20 minutes drive. Expect royal treatment and it's all value for your money.

The hotel definitely has great views with a lot of things to do while you are there that I would recommend staying a couple nights. We unfortunately only had less than a day here and that was not enough. The hotel is directly on the equator which is neat and has breathtaking views of mountains with lots of birds. There... More
