We called at this colonial type hotel three times during our kenyan safari - over-night on arrival, for lunch half way through and on the day of our departure.
Room was clean and comfortable, food was good and staff friendly and very attentive.
There is a steak house type restaurant attached to the hotel, where we ate the first night - huge steak reasonably priced, and an alternative to the hotel menu.
Two pools to choose from, one by the bar/restaurant and one in the well maintained garden surrounded by mature trees.
Although we were on holiday, I would think that this would be an ideal place to stay for a business trip to Kenya
