Accommodation is spacious, built to a high standard and very clean.
WiFi internet available in rooms and large desk also in room.
Very pleasant place to stay with ultra-high security.
Walked 100m down road to a wonderful restuarant overlooking a huge pool.
Had one of the best meals of the trip there and the cost was very reasonable.
Quiet area and safe, so highly recommended

Room Tip: Most rooms seem to be of similar standard

We decided to downgrade to this Lodge on our tour package to help save some money. We basically only needed a place to sleep our 1st night and near the end of our trip(another night).
We were very pleased with our decision as the staff was very friendly and breakfast very good. Our last night they only had a room with 2 double beds and apologized and offered to push them together. We were exhausted and this was not an issue at all. We just wanted a clean, friendly place to stay. We felt safe as there was a gated security and guard. Available coffee maker in room which was appreciated as 1 of the mornings we had to depart @ 5:30am and breakfast is not available that early. The reason for only 3 circle rating is that both times we stayed there were only towels for 1 and no box of kleenex. These are items that should have been in our room and we should not have had to call for. Because of the time of night/am we did not feel comfortable calling to rectify the situation.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Good free wifi and excellent breakfast. Other restaurants nearby. Adjacent to Israeli embassy, so security is very high. Nice place, much better value than Hilton (where I stayed previously).

In a city filled with 70s era hotels trying to be modern (or very expensive new hotels), the Country Lodge is a nice departure. I've stayed at at least 5 different places in Nairobi (including the InterCon), and this is my Nairobi hotel of choice. I first stayed 3 years ago and it's only gotten better. It's clean, has everything you need, and the modern aesthetic is a nice departure from the usual. Sure, you need to walk down the small lane to the restaurants next door, but it's not a big deal, and they do room service. Note there is no elevator (at least in the part I stayed in) but the staff will help you bring your bag up. Breakfast is definitely better than most other Kenyan hotels.

The hotel offers a good servicec with a friendly staff. The rooms are very nice and clean. There is a good, strong and fast Wifi and is included.
The vending area is poor and should be made better.
The are is quiet an near the city.
Restaurants are nearby at the Fairview Hotel - next door.

Well designed functional rooms for working, as long as your mouse works well on a glass covered desk. Breakfast not quite as great as they claim, especially if you are dairy intolerant. Their sister hotel, the Fairview, 100 m away, provide soymilk of right first, the budget versionCountry Lodge, doesn't. Still it can be bought in in larger supermarkets in town. Well situated in Upper Hill and close enough to be able to miss the horrendous Nairobi rush hour jams by walking into central business district locations within 30-40 minutes. A couple of nice little gyms gives you a chance to keep inch reasonable shape should you choose not to do the 40 minute walk to the downtown meeting/office. There is no food available other than breakfast, but the neighbouring sister Fairview hotel, has three restaurants, and do for a reasonable range of food from most tastes. Many taxis waiting should you wish to go further afield, but take on Nairobi rush hour traffic at your peril!
