After many years I visited The Stanley again. Was looking for the thorn tree in the courtyard restaurant. Its gone but replaced with boards which is a good idea. Good news is that a new thorn tree is planted and doing ok. The courtyard restaurant where the thorn tree was is no longer open to the road because of security. The hotel has obviously been renovated and modernised but the old tradition as there and one can feel history in these walls. Lobby decorated with old photographs that tell a lot about Kenya's past. The bar is great and ideal meeting point. Try it at tea time or for a cocktail. Room nice, quiet. Staff very friendly, smiley and out to please in the hotel. Security on every floor. My short stay was a "going down memory lane" and truly enjoyed.
