Never really thought a hotel in Nairobi could feel so special – this place is just amazing, in every sense. The accommodation is fantastic, the food is amazing, and the staff are just lovely...polite and attentive but never intrusive. Their hospitality felt truly genuine. 3 of us spent the night in the ‘log cabin’ which is so large, when we walked in we had assumed we were in some communal living space until the guide started showing us the bedrooms! The cabin has 2 double bedrooms with ensuite bathroom, plus a small mezzanine type bed space in the main living area, and another sitting space that could also serve as a double bed. There was a bar, and even a pool table in the cabin, along with sofas and a log fire! Dinner was in our room, and was delicious, although we were all rather full after the appetizers and the two starters so didn’t do the main course much justice. All drinks are included, including wine with the meal and the fridge is well-stocked with sodas and beer.
As residents, we got very good rates – even more so as there were three of us rather than just 2. We took a look at the tree houses before we left and they are lovely but for more than 2 people, the cabin is perfect!
