We stayed at the Stanley at the beginning and end of our trip to Kenya December 2012 and Jan 2013. The rooms were comfortable, clean and well appointed. The restaurant served good food at a reasonable price. The location allowed for walking the downtown area, and they provided a map and advice on the safe ares to walk. But it is the people there who made the stay so wonderful. The genuine caring and concern they showed when our safari company driver didn't show up on the last day. Joanne, Eva, and the manager, Duncan, worked tirelessly to make phone calls to try and contact them for us. They called the tourism ministry and places i would not have known about to get contact information. They allowed me free use of the business center after we were checked out. And when they were able to contact the company came and told me that they were disappointed in the way the safari company handled the situation. When we left fer the airport, they knew we would be there for several hours and sent us with two complimentary water bottles each so we wouldn't get thirsty. I can't say enough nice things about the people at the Stanley, who worked all day with us to make sure we were taken care of when we had been abandoned. Duncan told us it was because the people there genuinely like what they are doing, and i would have to agree. Joanne told us she know how she would feel if she was in our situation -- and even stopped by to say good bye when her shift ended. When you are far from home it is nice to know that there are people there who will help you in any situation, even when it is beyond their responsibility. Thank you Sarova Stanley for all you did for us.
