“Superb gardens, perfect for travelling with children.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful friendly staff, clean rooms, poplar restaurant and bar - definitely worth visiting. Children's playground area in the lawns within view of the restaurant verandah, and a popular Sunday gathering place.

Stayed April 2013, traveled with family

For the best welcome and convivial company don't miss the Purdy Arms.

Untold acres with huge views of the Ngong Hills, the Purdy offers you great meals and company on one of the largest plots in all of Karen, great for business and private stays.

And never pass up the samozas, the tomato and brie are the best in town.

Room Tip: Twiga all the way, the bath is amazing!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

Beautiful surroundings, attentive florescent staff and the food is good. Most importantly the Tusker is always cold! Frequented by locals and visitors alike, the atmosphere ranges from chilled to dancing on tables. the duke box is great (if the owner will let you get there first) and the guest art work is never disappointing.
