The cottages are spacious, private. They all face Mt.Kenya, so if lucky you can catch a glimpse of the tip early morning. The staff especially the Bar Man are very friendly. Fantastic food. Breakfast closes quite early & they have no room service. So a down side for those who enjoy sleeping in on weekends. Will definitely be back !!

Bungalows are perfectly situated with the most spectacular view possible. Well equipped (although bizarrely the powdered milk for coffee was unusable) and very comfortable accommodation. Main restaurant is cosy with attentive service and good food - and the breakfast out on the balcony overlooking Mt Kenya makes the stay completely worthwhile.

We had a delicious late lunch over Easter. Soames has a great view of Mt Kenya. We sat on the terrace for our meal. The food was good: Soft baby back ribs and chicken curry with naan. We especially enjoyed the service of waiter Justus. He was warm and friendly.

The hotel is just as you see it in the photos and even better in many aspects. The reception is amazing thanks to Simon and Paul, this guy's are amazing and will make your visit memorable and very comfortable, nothing is too much trouble for them. The food is great and so are their drinks. The dining area is relaxing with a great view of My Kenya. The rooms are beautifully done, good size as well as clean and huge bathrooms. The beds are HUGE and COMFORTABLE!!! Could have slept forever
