I have stayed at the Safari Park hotel several times. It is always restful and pleasant. The staff are friendly and helpful.
The large colonial style rooms are cool and shaded. Good mosquito protection is provided.
The hotel grounds are particularly well kept, and attract a range of colourful and interesting bird life. Sitting on the balcony of your room and admiring the bird life is very enjoyable, especially if you happen to awake in the early morning.
The pool is well kept, but on the cooler side (a factor of the Nairobi climate). I would not plan a tropical holiday by the pool here.
The breakfast and meals are adequate and reasonably priced. I would rate the Breakfast 6-7/10. As with most hotel buffet meals, the food is sometimes not at optimum temperature.
The Italian style restaurant within the grounds is usually my choice of evening meal. The pizza is usually a good standard....certainly when compared to pizza elsewhere in Nairobi!
The security of the hotel grounds is to a fairly good standard....something that all travelers need to be aware of when looking at accommodation in Nairobi.
Internet connection and speed is unreliable. I suspect this is an issue at a national level rather than being wholly attributable to the hotel.
The staff make this hotel. It excels in few areas, but presents a good standard throughout. The staff are to be congratulated at the Safari Park. Without exception, I have found them to be helpful, cheerful and reliable.
