Lavington Hill house were able to take get us a room on the day of our wedding...such short notice. We did our photo shoot at the front garden which was super beautiful which they gave our bridal team refreshments...very awesome. The honeymoon room blew our expectation,especially since we had booked it the last minute, it was dim with a 'romantic... More

We stayed at Lavington in July 2015 for a long weekend to visit our son who was interning this summer at Nairobi Chapel. From the reservation process, to beautiful room, and wonderful breakfast, we had an excellent stay. Highly recommended. Stephen Catherine and Anna from Londonderry NH

We stayed at the Lavington Hill house for 2 nights. Our taxi driver tried his very best to find this guest house but it was near to impossible to find. We were a large group and the hotel was not prepared for us but did their best to accommodate us. Breakfast was included with the rooms and although tasty the... More

I just moved to Nairobi and needed a place to stay near my office for three days. I chose LHH purely on location, but I got way more comfort and care than I'd bargained for. This place is in a large colonial looking house with a wrap-around garden and veranda with huge oval windows looking out from the dining room.... More

Lavington Hill House is a super friendly guest house tucked in a quiet corner of Lavington. This is a great, low-profile alternative to a big generic hotel. Food is tasty (and huge servings) and rooms are quirky and clean. Don't stay here if you're looking for hotel facilities, but if (like me) you prefer a more unique and personal experience... More

Overall the service was very good and friendly. The location maybe be not easy to find, which is good thing because it is kind of hideout, where you have perfect time to relax. Also nice terrace and garden. The breakfast is OK and other food on the menu as well. I was very satisfied and would warmly recommend this place.... More

I'm surprised by all the rave reviews but I guess it depends on what you're looking for. Let me explain my "poor" rating. I thought this place would be something like The Fairview in Nairobi which is my favourite hotel of any I've stayed at, anywhere. However, I hadn't realised that the Lavington isn't a hotel, it's correctly classified by... More

Been meaning to write this for a while now but just go to it. I had to stay in hotels in Nairobi for more than a month at the beginning of last year after being evacuated from South Sudan. Luckily most of my time was spent staying at Lavington Hill House. The property is beautiful; an old mansion surrounded by... More

On a recommendation from a friend, my husband and I stayed at the Lavington Hill House while visiting Nairobi. We were not disappointed. Our room was bright,spacious and clean.There was a delightful patio outside our room. The family that runs the Inn offered great conversation and assistance in getting around Nairobi. The room price included a wonderful full breakfast in... More
