We had the pleasure of staying at the Country Lodge Hotel for 3 nights. The hotel was clean and well decorated. The staff were all very kind and professional. They always took the extra steps to make sure you were having a great experience. The rooms were also very nice and clean.
Yet, there were a few things that made it truly exceptional. First, they had an amazing breakfast that exceeded any "included" breakfast I have ever had except for a few higher end bed and breakfast establishments in the US. Second, it is an very safe location (right next to the Israel Embassy) in the most desirable part of the city. Third, you can enjoy nearly all of what the more expensive sister hotel (the Fairview) offers through the pathways joining the two properties. While we stayed at the Country Lodge, we had some our meals and had our large conference at the excellent facilities at the Fairview....and we could charge everything to our rooms at the Country Lodge.
The only drawback for some people is that it does not have air conditioning in the rooms. However, the temperature varies little in Nairobi, and the nights are cool enough most days of the year that the overhead fan provides more than adequate air movement and cooling. This is coming from someone who must have a cooler room or will spend the whole night tossing and turning. However, if you must have air conditioning, the Fairview is a great alternative (but you will pay considerably more).
