This is a near-perfect conference location. Green beautiful surroundings, well away from the city - we even saw antilopes next to the garden! It is quiet and peaceful, and really facilitates for concentration and rest well away from everyday stress. Delicious food. Good service. Very spacious rooms, and clean. I would think it is great for private trips as well,...

Brilliant venue for our work conference. Lovely surroundings, very quiet and peaceful. The rooms were spacious, clean and with hot water and mosquito nets. The price was very reasonable and the food each day good quality and plenty. My only critique would be the internet isn't great.

In addition it is safe to walk around the neighbouring area where you can...

That being said, the rooms...

the reception was good but slow, they carried our luggage and gave us a welcome drink. (box juice in a glass :) ) I loved the room decor: loads of wrought iron furniture and huge windows letting in light from dawn to dusk. I also loved the size of the bathroom and I had 2 towels and sandals that were...

Went on a business trip but enjoyed the stay. A wonderful place for a business trip or leisure. Its away from all the Nairobi traffic. Good food and good staff. The rooms are clean. The hotel does not have a bar! You just come out of the hotel, and its a paradise of wild life
