“There Are Better Choices In Kenya”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2009

The Country Lodge and its cousin the Fairview may be an okay choice if you are a caucasian and don't mind seeing Africans mistreated by foreigners. I was appalled.

The prices are reasonable, the accommodations are okay, but the service is sub-standard, however. I have stayed on two occasions (I thought the first time was an anomaly) but will never do so again.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2009

We stayed at Country Lodge Hotel for one week (December 27, 2008-Jan.2, 2009). We were incredibly impressed with the professional, friendly and helpful service each and every staff member provided. I felt safe, comfortable and at ease at the hotel. The rooms were impeccable - new, clean and great size. (I stayed in a single economy for 6900ksh - $87USD).

I highly recommend this hotel to others. I expect to be back in Nairobi sometime and would definitely stay here again!
