“Home away from home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

A great stay with impeccable service.The staff consistently went the extra mile, and made us feel more like family. Our family occupied 3 rooms, for two weeks, in Nov, 2012

Regardless of what ' random' times we returned to the House, there was always someone to give us a warm, genuine welcome. The Chef even came in ( on his day off) to accomodate our dinner inquiry. ( We were willing to settle for Pizza) Their belief in the motto of ' Yes is the answer..so what is the question' was excecuted flawlessly.

Each of the staff addressed us by our names.

It truely was our home away from home.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

I stayed at Lavington Hill House for one week in October 2012. I received excellent service right from the time I arrived (0430 am) to the time I left at this guest house. My room was clean and comfortable and no problems with connectivity. The food was above average for a guest house (I enjoyed both breakfast and dinner). The Hotel arranged daily transport that was reliable and safe. The thing that stands out the most though is the lovely staff! They were very kind and helpful always! If you are spending time in Lavington or Karen, this is a great option to one of the downtown big hotels!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is a very nice B+B/Boutique Hotel in Nairobi. It has a very nice lobby with a great front window overlooking the gardens. It would be great for a group of couples or families--there is plenty of common spaces for meeting and chatting.

It is a good mid-range option in terms of price. The rooms are new, fresh, and comfortable. The bathrooms are modern. Very nice flat screen TVs and comfortable linens. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful.

The breakfast is extremely generous and very good.

We had a very nice stay at Lavington Hill House and would stay there again.
