We stayed at this hotel as part of our Kenya Classic safari with Hayes & Jarvis.
Firstly we were suprised that this hotel appeared to be quite a drive from Nairobi airport (considering it's titled a Nairobi hotel) - but we were delighted. It's like a little corner of paradise & you forget you're staying very near to the hustle & bustle of Nairobi.
The rooms were lovely with a balcony overlooking the gardens. The bars & restaurants weren't cheap, but quality was good.
Being our first night in Kenya we wanted to eat African - so went to the Nyama Chama (sorry if this is spelt wrong) restaurant, which has all the grilled meats of Africa - along with soup, salad, dessert etc. The food & service were excellent. They had a great band playing & then at 21:00 there was an African show. Now usually we avoid any 'cultural show' like the plague - but this one was brilliant 30-40 fantastic dancers & acrobats who were truely magical. It was a great introduction to Africa & I'd recommend it.
A plentiful breakfast was on offer very early in the morning (as most people are heading off early on Safari's).
A great introduction to Africa - thoroughly enjoyed spending our first night here.
