My husband and I stayed at the Ngong house for 1 night and were blown away by our tree house (#7), by the beauty of the location, by the service and food. We stayed on half-board basis and the dinner was fantastic - the four course meal, with nice wine, by the fireplace on a cool Nairobi night, it was the best dinner we've had in a while. The house was really like nothing else we've experienced - our bed was set in a boat, the veranda was a perfect place to take tea, the woodwork, furniture and floors were beautiful, and the house in general had so much character. The shower was excellent, and there was plenty of hot water to fill a canoe bathtub. There were lots of birds in the gardens, where the breakfast was set. The location of the hotel is a bit far from the city, but there are plenty of places to explore in Karen, from the Giraffe Center and Elephant Orphanage to Kazuri bead factory and shop, as well as craft stalls and museums.
We had a wonderful stay and are already plotting to come back.
