The variety in the brunch is just awesome! Went with a group of about 15 friends, and everyone was served well and to their fill. Great service, professional staff right from the security staff at the gate. We were a little noisy and took lots of photos (it was a farewell gig) and no one gave us the side eye. Will definitely recommend and go back there again.

If you are spending some time in Nairobi and want to spend some time visiting the sites in Karen then Hemmingways is a great option. Karen itself is lovely and away from the rush and traffic of downtown Natriobi. This can be a boon but if you need to be in the centre then travel can be an issue.

It is a new hotel with nice grounds and really nice rooms - the best Ive seen in Nairobi and in most other parts of the world. Each room is large and well appointed with a balcony overlooking the manicured lawns.

The bathroom was large and well arranged and the general standard of housekeeping and luxury could not be faulted.

Food was good also and the breakfast had good choice and was well presnted.

Room Tip: All the rooms overlook the lawns - they are quite spread out and some are far from the main lobby an...

The hotel location is at a wonderfully quite and beautiful area. .. The wait staff at breakfast were very good and attentive to our needs ....

I would highly suggest this beautiful place to my couple friends..

The rooms were very clean and equipped with standard appliances... although in a hotel of such standers I would expect a hair dryer....

All in all its a beautiful place that deserves 5 ☆ ... I would definitely go back

First trip to the Spa centre at this very stylish Hemmingways Hotels today. A slice of calm and relaxation out of town from busy Nairobi. Loved every minute of the treatments I had. Staff were lovely. Prices competitive. And the small touches, like fresh fruit and herbal tea, just added up to a wonderful experience. A delicious lunch with the Ngong Hills in the background where Karen Blixen and Denis Finch-Hatton rode on horseback (or Meryl Streep and Robert Redford to you and me) just rounded it off. I will definitely be going back.
