From the start I was made to feel welcome & when I had some trouble connecting the internet on my phone, Rose at reception was wonderful & very helpful. My room was lovely & the gardens are so beautiful... More

I always stay at this hotel. Centrally located and old world charm, even after renovation. Afternoon tea is to die for! Rooms are spacious and well appointed. Staff is very hospitable and I look forward to returning soon.

This restaurant is reputed to have the best steaks in Nairobi. It did not disappoint as they were excellent. The wine list was also decent with a good selection of international wines.

A wonderful wonderful dinner. Commenced with an Asparagus & avocado starter, followed by a New York striploin steak. 2 glasses of South African Shiraz complemented the meal perfectly.... More

I had lunch at Norfolk not so long ago and I really enjoyed the service. We were served freshly squeezed juice at no extra cost. This is rare in Nairobi as the hotels normally serve packet juice as part of their meals package and freshly squeezed juice, if ordered, is at an extra cost.
