We had booked 5 rooms and were told that we were getting special discounts but when I checked with some other parties in the hotel with similar number of people, they were given much more discounts than we were. In spite of informing them that we are the company auditors no special discounts were provided. We checked in on Aug... More

This Hotel was extremely nice by Kenyan standards. As long as you understand this is no North American 4-star hotel. It would definitely be a reasonable 3 star here, in... More

Set a litle back from the main road, but transportation is not a problem to get here. Taxi's or the Matatus/tuk-tuk's are fine. Its an nice property, however the hot water schedule was confusing and not explained at check in. The place was almost empty as I imagine the high season was not in effect in mid-july
