Nice ambience especially for the sports football enthusiasts who want to catch action on big screen while kids play in the pool or have fun outdoors. Nice food and good choice of wines too. The rooms are well done, clean and have an interesting theme of contemporary phones and cupboards that take on back in time to the 19th Century,... More

I stayed here in December 2014 for several days. My safari company director booked the hotel and pre-paid for my rooms. On the day that I was leaving for home, I was charged $382. When the hotel was later contacted about this, they said that it was "a mistake" and that they had refunded the money to my account. They... More

Kenyan people are known for their friendliness. The staff of this establishment clearly lives and works to this credo. I stayed here for 5 nights and I didn't see one frown from a staff member the whole time. The staff are well trained, always nearby when needed and I never felt they were intrusive. The size of my room felt... More

I stayed at this hotel on a recent speaking trip to Nairobi. From the moment of arrival to the checkout, the staff went out of their way to make my trip comfortable and memorable. The room I stayed in was well appointed and neatly made up each day. The restaurant food was well presented and nicely prepared although the service... More

Dear Artpreston, Thank you for your comments especially about the pool area, lawns and reception.

... a beautiful oasis in this los and busy city. Beautiful garden, great food, and perfect service. Definitely a great place for workshops and meetings or just to relax from a busy week in town. Funny animals will share the garden with you and make your stay a unique experience.

I booked a 7 night stay here and at check-in they told me they were overbooked on my final 4 nights, but would do their best to relocate those arriving rather than relocate me for the final 4 nights, but would let me know in advance either way.

First time at the Collingham for a wedding reception. Has great ambiance, with a 'homely' touch. Lovely garden for photography. Service was excellent: Host went to great lengths to ensure that the needs of toddlers as well as the elderly were catered for. The food was a decent buffet with a wide selection. Will definitely be back soon!

We had a meeting for about a dozen people, lunch in the dining room was excellent, nice soup, imaginative salads and well (not over) cooked choice of meats, fish and veg. Fresh fruit and well presented deserts. The conference room was spacious, bright and comfortable. The break was served in the gardens which are well laid out with a multitude... More

I have stayed at the Collingham once or twice before but oddly I came away slightly underwhelmed; yet this time I really loved the place. Set on just a few acres, it is made up of villas, the best of which is the third or fourth in as it is not cluttered by conference, restaurant or massage/gym facilities. I stayed... More

A quiet get away in the middle of bustling Nairobi. Lovely and exquisitely designed rooms with a beautiful garden. Secure parking is available although you would be pressed for space if you are the kind of party that loves to travel in their own cars as opposed to pooling.
