Stayed for one night for our early flight that next day from Wilson Airport to Masai Mara. The taxi journey from Jomo Kenyatta Airport to hotel took more than 2 hours (it was during the peak hours & traffic condition was bad ). Our taxi ride from hotel to Wilson Airport is only 10 minutes.
Hotel provides a sense of security as they screen through every car that drives into the hotel. There is also a security guard at every floor of the hotel. Room looks tired & old but it's clean and comfortable. Basic bath amenities provided including hair dryer. Wifi works fine.
We had dinner at the poolside restaurant. Great service but below average food. Paid around USD56 for 4 dishes.
Hotel provides breakfast. Spread is ok with your choice of eggs, breads, juices and hot beverages.
Extremely slow check-in / check-out.
