My husband and I stayed at this hotel after we finished a Mt Kenya trek and before departing for safari. It was the perfect place to relax in a beautiful and comfortable setting. The rooms and the property are gorgeous and very clean. The food was delicious, and the employees were all very helpful and welcoming. We would love to return!

Rooms were quiet, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The food is very tasty, and the service friendly—especially the indispensable Justus, waiter extraordinaire. A very nice place to rest up between safaris!

I loved everything about Soames. The rooms are cozy and warm. The food was amazing- I highly recommend the braised belly pork and the chilli prawns. Their puddings aren’t so bad either! The chef did an amazing job- her name is Alice and she went out of her way to ensure that we loved the food. The staff is super friendly- special shout out to Charles and both bartenders.

I heard no complaints about the beer and the wine either and we all enjoyed our selection of snacks. The chicken wings were particular nice & spicy. I forgot the local name for the fried rice balls and the potato patties but there were 5 pieces of each which was just perfect for our party of 5. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly, telling me off jokingly that a Latte does not count as a
