The gardens in this well established hotel make it a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable and the food during the day is excellent. At night it is worth escaping outside for dinner to seek good value and any atmosphere.

It is an excellent hotel worth every penny that we pay for. Great food excellent staff and very proactive management. We used it for our conference of more than 450 people. The place id so huge that it did not feel crowded at all. The place is really worth the money

The Hotel is well roofed in a more traditional way hence making it look very natural and appealing. It's located on the biggest Super Highway in the country and driving to the Airport or City centre is at ease. The food is good and especially you get much value for money on lunch buffet. The rooms i stayed are nice looking and spacious and the green gardens outside with flowers adds alot of beauty to the surroundings. There is WiFi in all the facility and the Hemingway bar is a most fabulous for a cold drink.

Room Tip: All the rooms and especially the once away from the Super Highway are quieter.

As mentioned by others, we were booked here with SmarTours Kenya/Tanzania Wildlife Safari. We were originally supposed to be there two nights in the beginning and one night before our trip to Tanzania. We ended up with just one night in the beginning of our journey and one night on our return.

The hotel grounds are lovely and the hotel is really quite large. We found the breakfast buffet and the lunch buffet to be adequate and good (typical buffet fare really, but a lot of choices). On our return visit we had dinner at the Italian restaurant, which we enjoyed and found the food and service quite good.

Honestly, we were in the rooms for such a short period, that it's hard to be too judgmental. Both rooms were fine for the amount of time we were there.

We enjoyed a Tusker or three, sitting outside at the Hemingway Bar, which was nice and the service was prompt and friendly.

My average rating comes from their wifi charge. It just seems ridiculous to charge $25 for 24 hours. We weren't even there 24 hours either time. I don't really need wifi, so I didn't bother with it, it just annoyed me that there was this kind of charge. As another review noted, we stayed in 8 different hotels when we were on this trip, and there was not another hotel that ever charged for wifi.

I wouldn't be upset if we stayed there again.

We spent 3 days at the Safari Park Hotel at the beginning of a safari. The grounds are beautiful and we spent much time walking around to enjoy the landscaping. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony overlooking the gardens. The acrobatic show at the Nyama Choma restaurant was wonderful. The food was entirely focused on the meat dishes including skewers of camel, crocodile,lamb, etc. The portions of potato and vegetables accompanying the meat were very small. We found the food at the Italian restaurant and at Cafe Kigwa to be of very good quality. The beds were very hard but we used the duvet as a mattress cover and that worked well! My only complaint about this hotel is the exorbitant cost of the wi-fi ($25.00/night) and the reception was very poor. Often you could not get on the internet at all. We stayed in 8 different hotels in Kenya and Tanzania and the Safari Park was the only one to charge for internet and it had the poorest internet reception.

We booked a safari and this was the hotel that was booked for us on arrival to Nairobi, unfortunately we arrived late at night and had to leave early morning.
The grounds seemed well looked after very lush in appearance and as you walk in the main lobby there is a huge elephant statue in the middle, the whole place was very eye catching. Had breakfast in the morning and it was plentiful and delicious lots to choose from. Wished we could have stayed there for a full day to experience this hotel it is very appealing. Large rooms with netting around bed rustic looking rooms very cool.

I spent a week in this hotel for business and have good and bad memories. On the positive side, the overall property is beautiful, the gardens are well maintained and it looks very nice and relaxing.
On the not so positive, the rooms look very old, bathroom fixtures in bad shape, door did not close and furniture was falling apart. You could see stains on the bathroom floor from leakings, the toilet did not have a proper flush and all faucets needed some turns to finally produce water.
Check out was slow and a bit rude, my group needed a specific invoice and the front desk ladies did not hide how annoyed they were with the request. The duty manager, however was very polite and solved the case.
There is no A/c in the rooms and some power cuts dureing the day left us in the dark until the generator kicked in. The wi-fi in my bedroom was non existent and unrelieable in several areas.
Food was ok, there are several restaurants inside the property and prices are ok compared to other places in Nairobi.
Could be much better with a little more of care.
