We stayed here for one night before starting our week of safari, and had a lovely night!
On arrival in our room, there were rose petals around the bed and bathroom, and we had been left a bottle of wine & a fruit basket.
We had our dinner at the pool restaurant, I had a delicious chicken waldorf salad while my husband had a well cooked steak. Following this, we went to the Exchange Bar for cocktails, where the barman (I forget his name) was very friendly & welcoming. We had a free shot each and were given some Tusker glasses as a memento of our trip. Breakfast the next morning was also delicious, and the mandanzi we had there were the nicest of our whole holiday.
The security at the hotel is very impressive, and when we asked for directions to the nearest supermarket, a security officer walked us to the shop. We had to persuade him that we would be fine to get back to the hotel ourselves, but he was willing to wait while we did our shopping! I also managed to leave my kindle at the hotel and this was returned to the Pollmans rep within a day, and I got it back on our return to Nairobi the next week.
We were very impressed with all aspects of this hotel and would happily stay again.
