We stayed at this hotel for one night en route to the Masai Mara. Very pleasant hotel to stay at. The rooms are a good size and very clean. The gardens are beautiful and the grounds are very well kept.
There is a Spur steakhouse in the hotel which makes it very convenient to grab something to eat if you are only saying 1 night.
The breakfast buffet is very good with a large variety of dishes.
Staff at the hotel are very friendly.
Quick transfer time of approx. 15-20 minutes to Wilson airport which is the airport you fly out of if you are flying to the Game areas of East Africa
