“spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My wife and I had such a pleasant experience at this hotel. We could not have found a more secure and safe place to stay for the night. The complimentary breakfast is out of this world. The beds were very comfortable and we highly recommend this hotel to travelers.

Really interesting place where to spend some times while you are working in Nairobi.
Really quite area. with a lot of restaurants where to spend the evening. WIFi for very fast connection. Clean and new - Rooms not so large and essentials but really clean!

The Country Lodge is a modern, very secure and well run establishment that provides the necessary basic facilities. The rooms are clean, spacious with plenty of natural light, reliable WiFi, a room safe and a large screen television. Breakfasts are adequate and the staff very friendly and efficient. The location really adds value as it is in a quiet area and guests have access via a short walk to all the amenities that the luxurious Fairview Hotel next door offers. Here there is a large swimming pool, two gyms and four good quality restaurants to choose from. The Country Lodge also operates a shuttle service to the airport twice a day at around half the cost of a taxi (currently at 5:30am and 8:30pm - I assume to avoid the very bad traffic jams that often occur during the day). I will certainly prioritse this hotel on my next business trip to Nairobi.

Room Tip: If you don't like walking up stairs try and choose a room closest to the ground floor. There is...

Excellent value for money. All the advantages of having a nice secure hotel with a very quiet environment. The access to the Fairview through inner gate is great. Can go to the Fairview restaurants and charge to your room in the Country Lodge. So, has all the advantages of staying in the Fairview Hotel without the extra expense. The breakfast in the Country Lodge is excellent, even better than the Fairview as you can get a very good omelet cooked to order, good selection of fruits, and even some vegetables, cheeses, etc. The breakfast area is very nice and there is ample setting. Excellent choice to stay in Nairobi for business traveler, Taxi service always available and good prices.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for room in the building with the elevators. Is a quiet area and top floor has good...

Country Lodge by itself is a fairly nice hotel, the fact that guests can make use of the Fairview Hotel facilities upgrades’ it and raise its overall experience by far.

Staff is very polite friendly and service minded. Without doubt hotel is located at the most secured place in Nairobi.

Room Tip: Nothing above the entrance side, best choice would be higher floor at the back side of the hotel

Country Lodge provides a calm green flourishing environment in the city!
The lodge is well light with natural light and refreshened with well organised vegetation that serves as a habitant to birds which actually welcomes you to the break of day with singing early in the morning.
You cannot afford to miss the delicious meals offered by the Pwani Pool resturant, i enjoyed the rib eye served with often baked potato, spinach sauce and mushroom soup.
Breakfast is colourful and starts you energized for a great day.
It is secured and friendly!

The long established and elegant Fairview Hotel with beautiful gardens, décor, fireplaces and charm is literally connected to the Country Lodge so that in some cases the pool area of the Fairview may be closer to some of the rooms in the CL than to rooms in the Fairview itself! Other than the use of the gym and actually swimming in the pool, guests at the CL have full access to all facilities at the Fairview including room charges on their hotel bill (the management of the two hotels is the same). I spent almost all my (hotel) time at the Fairview and used the CL for sleeping purposes. Incidentally, even without the Fairview next door, the CL is an excellent hotel in terms of room amenities, breakfast buffet, service etc. I'm never staying at another hotel in Nairobi as long as they keep up with this level of comfort, service and value for money.
