We recently stayed at the Fairmont Norfolk on our way out to Masai Mara. The room was quiet and well appointed. Breakfast on the Terrace was sumptuous and my husband swore his cappuchino was one of the best he has had.
We especially appreciated being able to leave some of our luggage at the hotel since we were limited as to what we could take on safari.
We picked up the luggage and got a "day room" on our way back through Nairobi. Since most long distance flights leave late a night it was nice to shower, repack and have a nap before flying out. I only wish we had time to dine at Tatu, the menu looked fantastic.
Security was on top ofeverything so no worries there at all. An oasis of calm inside the Norfolk.
