“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I was wondering what sort of a hotel it would turn out to be after a long flight from Singapore, and a long ride in the darkness from Nairobi airport. And it was a real pleasant surprise when I reached Collingham. Quaint, old world and far removed from a typical hotel. It was more like a home stay, with lovely villas overlooking a garden and a farm house. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay

In August, I spent three weeks at the Collingham on business, and I cannot say enough about how wonderful the experience was. It is boutique-style rather than mass accommodation. The rooms are lovely and clean, and the grounds are absolutely spectacular. The food is gourmet and some of the best I've had anywhere in the world. The gym is small, but adequate. The staff and management are professional and quality people. I love this place.

This is a quiet well maintained property and the service is truly amazing. I arrived just before midnight and the kitchen crew knew I was coming and waited to take my order for dinner. The rooms are spacious and very clean. The food is limited in selection but I found it very good. Most importantly, I felt very secure which is an important consideration in the context of Kenya.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms are very quiet

Collingham is located in Karen suburb in Nairobi, in a very exclusive location, they have marvellous rooms and their sports bar is just out of this world, their one honeymoon suite is recommended for those who would luv to have their honeymoon in Nairobi, also a good town hotel for guys visiting Kenya for safari's, they have a heated pool, a gym, a specialised salon and oftenly host karaoke by their bar......

Room Tip: rooms on 1st floor onward are really good as compared to the ground floor rooms....
