We stayed in this hotel for 1 night as we were transfering between a safari and the Seychelles. The hotel is surrounded by great grounds, and when we arrived we were told we'd been given a suite as we were on honeymoon. This suite was great, with wooden floors and four-poster bed, plus a balcony to sit on and look out over the lovely gardens!! Food for lunch wasn't cheap, and the pool was to be avoided, but for a brief stop off it was good.
The highlight of the stay was the evening entertainment, which involved a sort of musical, which turned into a great display of gymnastics!! (we're not going to say any more, as we wouldn't want to give away what happens!!). Food during this evening was fantastic, as it was BBQed in front of you on a huge fire, and then cut off huge spits directly onto your plate.
Overall, if we were staying in Nairobi again, we would consider this hotel, and one point to note - always get a taxi (its too dangerous to travel any other way, and finding your way around would be pretty impossible). And if you find someone like our taxi driver, he'll turn up when and where you need to get you from A to B.
