It is wonderful thoroughly enjoyable, the safari drive is a must, it is an unusual and unique place perhaps the Aberdares are not going to be the greatest of safari destinations but it is still worth the trip, Treetops has an old world feel which makes it exceptionally unique and a great experience

We spent there just one night, but it was amazing. Overnight we were able to watch mama elephant with babies and hyenas drinking from the pond right under our window. Infrastructure was more fascinating before the recent renovation but at the end of the day it offers an exquisite experience. Be sure to know the check-ins procedure before you go.... More

I stayed here 1986 and now 2016. What an absolute wonderful stay! My partner and I rented a suite. We were lucky enough to get the VIP room the Princess Elizabeth Suite and were escorted to it by the staff and maitre d'hotel. It had a sitting area set with a tea/coffee service with bisquits overlooking the saltlick. Wonderful private... More

I have been in Kenya for many years but this was my first visit here. I had heard that Treetops did not compare favorably with other similar lodges but that was not the case. The setting and views are great, the lodge has been recently renovated so very comfortable yet retaining its colonial charm. Staff were friendly and efficient, and... More

This was awful. We had been looking forward to staying here for so long. The hotel used to have an amazing reputation and of course has a great history of Queen Elizabeth becoming a Queen whilst she stayed here. Unfortunately , the hotel management seems to think that this is sufficient to make it a good stay which is completely... More

Not the most accesiable of hotels although no 4 x 4 required the location is outstanding within Aberdare National Park. Check in for afternoon tea, Take a late afternoon game drive. Dinner then over your after dinner drinks sit back for a truly amazing free show as the park's wildlife converge on the adjacent watering hole with the resident "keeper"... More

we visited Treetops about 4 years ago and although a great experience (animal wise) the accommodation was dismal. Rooms were so small you had to take only an overnight bag, as there was no room for a case. We knew it had been upgraded, but we were not expecting much. How wrong could we be??!! Gone are the poky little... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in Aberdare National Park, this world-renowned rustic Treehouse is over 80 years old and was recently fully refurbished. This game viewing lodge was originally built in 1932 and is famous as the place where the then-Princess Elizabeth ascended to the British Throne. The father King George VI died on 5th Feb 1952 the night she spent at Treetops while on honeymoon.Treetops lies in the path of an ancient Elephant migratory route between the Aberdare Ranges and Mt Kenya National park, and is strategically sited right in front of a natural watering hole and salt lick.With large windows fitted in all guest rooms, restaurant and lounge guests can drink in the sight of Elephants, Buffalos, Rhinos and more from all areas including the view deck on top floor of the building. Die-hard animal lovers needn't worry about missed sightings, even into the early hours of the morning. An optional buzzer in the rooms alerts the guests when a spectacle is unfolding at the waterhole. Game drives and a lecture about Treetops are also available to the guests.This lodge-on-stilts is accessed through a gradual ramp to the top floor and a Tree grows right through the building. There are 36 en-suite guest rooms that include 3 spacious suites and 33 twin rooms that can be converted into double rooms. A disabled friendly room is located on the first floor. ... more   less
