We booked a 6 day stay to play golf in the Nairobi area prior to going on safari. Unfortunately we arrived on a Saturday and there were 4 weddings taking place and it was chaos with people everywhere.
We were shown to our room or maybe cave would be a better description, dark, small with outdated bathroom fittings. Room was rejected. Next room we were shown was bigger but also dark and in need of upgrading. By now we were getting angry and were offered an "Executive Suite" to passify us. It was large and airy but like an oven, even with an overhead fan and a floor standing unit it was difficult ro keep the room cool. There was no pressure from the shower and luke warm water.
After playing golf we thought we might go for a dip in the pool or have a jacuzzi. We didnt do either.You couldnt even see the bottom in the pool and the Jacuzzi probably hasnt worked in the past 5 years!!! On Monday the first of the Conference parties arrived and averaged 2 or 3 a day.
The best part of the stay was the meat feast/maasai show, an excellent evening.
The Hotel is badly in need of an upgrade.
WIFI is KSH 2000 a day which is an insult as the signal is poor and intermittent, quite apart from the regular power cuts we experienced.
