We had already been travelling for some time when we arrived to Nairobi, and though it was expected that our budget would have to go up for the Kenya portion of our trip, it was still unpleasant to pay more for a night of camping in our own tent than we had been paying for a private room weeks ago in other cities. But like I said, that was to be expected, and probably even more so at a location of this quality.
Overall Wildebeest Camp was very impressive. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the grounds are beautiful and well cared for, and they seem to be continually making improvements (a new pond was in construction while we were there). As we were camping, I cannot speak to the rooms or luxury tents, but the shared bathrooms were clean and the showers warm. The restaurant had great selection, and the food was tasty. The owner was helpful when we had some questions regarding local transportation within Nairobi. Though not close to the airport (where I imagine many people might be arriving/departing from), it is a clean, comfortable, and welcoming place. (also of note: we did use their transport from the airport, and the driver was waiting for us as our plane landed, and promptly took us to the camp. Good service.)
