“February 2012 Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Overall a good place to stay. Ongoing road construction has made accessing the hotel rather difficult and unsafe as there is only one entry and exit. One wonders what would happen in case of an emergency.

Service is good, food is OK and staff offer warm welcome. Improve on food ala carte portions. Provide mosquito repellent chips or spray. Also, provide a room safe to store valuables even if at a fee.

Room Tip: Check the the room assigned as they vary in size and TV position.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2011

We left some baggage with the front desk while we took a safari. When we returned, our bag had been opened and some items stolen. Despite the sign on the front desk claiming that the hotel would only take responsibility for items left with them (and the fact that under Kenyan law they are legally obliged to), management refused to help in any way. In fact they ever asked us to pay the left luggage fee!

After staying in many hotels in Kenya, this is the only theft we had. The worse part was the total indifference by the staff and their 'couldn't care less attitude'.

Incidentally the ongoing construction with the new Nairobi/Thika road makes it very noisy.

Room Tip: Stay elsewhere
