The titles of the other reviews are somewhat surprising and I can't see what we missed. True, the garden is pleasant, although the pool water looked a little too green for my liking and certainly not the same blue as the photograph shows. The bedroom was very tiny, there were no lamp shades on the lights and only 2 of the 3 light bulbs worked. Breakfast was passable but cold, being cooked before we arrived at the breakfast table. Good quiet location towards the outskirts of Nairobi. The staff were pleasant and friendly. The real disappointment was the fact that we unfortunately left pyjamas in the room (didn't have them in our bag and only stayed one place for one night, wore them at night, left them in the bed) but nobody admitted to finding them. We know they were there. What else can we say. It makes the stay really disappointing. With the Tripadvisor discount, this is good value. The full price is, in our opinion, poor value. Again, it's one of those places that we might stay if we had no other choices.
