“Great hideaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

An absolutely brilliant place to stay, friendly staff, good food and drink, peaceful surroundings and stunning rooms. Rob and Georgina are great hosts, nothing is too much of a problem for them. I would definately recommend Karen Country lodge to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing stay.

Enjoyed a wonderful few days at Karen Country Lodge. Excellent food, great service and a lovely atmosphere. Nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed lolling by the pool and strolling in the gardens in the evening. I would definitely recommend KCL to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday and a fab time.

Went there with my friends for the weekend and had a great time. The staff are super friendly and the service is really good. It's in a nice peaceful area called Karen and as soon as me and my friends got there we felt relaxed. You won't be disappointed.

Had a really good night at Karen Country Lodge. Had a very good dinner, headed down to the rooms, where there was a fire already made, making the room very warm, good atmosphere. The service as very good, we were looked after very well throughout our stay. This is a perfect spot, will defiantly be coming back here whenever i am in Nairobi.

Room Tip: Room 5 nice very in the mornings.

Enjoyed a week at the Karen Country Lodge being looked after by Rob and his team. Rooms were outstanding and the restaurant was excellent. Especially enjoyed the breakfasts and the fresh tree tomato juice. Nothing was too much trouble and I will definitely look forward to my next stay.

Room Tip: Stayed in Cottage 1 which was extremely quiet and only a 2 min walk from/to the restaurant.

We stayed 4 nights in two different stays. Loved it. Say hello to Rob and Georgina. They have established a delightful place to stay in great location. Visit Georgina's studio to see some very well crafted art. Dine in Rob's restaurant for good quality well prepared meals.

I had a wonderful stay here while in Nairobi. The Rooms, food and general atmosphere was perfect. Would happily recommend especially for couples. Great value for money. Hope to come back very soon. Lovely gardens and water features. Quiet and safe in a good location. Easy to get to and from the airport and very accommodating. My room had an open fire, and huge bathroom and lounge area, cable TV and tea and coffee facilities. See pictures. Would love to come back with my partner. Perfect for couples. Thanks Rob and Georgina.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 4 it was wonderful.
