Had the worst experience eating here. From the service to the food. Did not get welcomed by anyone when we got in. Sitting down on the table we had to wait more than 30 min to get our orders. after which the drinks and starters took so long. Asking for jikos was a hastle. Main course took nearly an hour and even when it came it was the worst food we ate. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!

Stayed: December 2013

Gorgeous, cosy rooms - we stayed in a cottage. Friendly staff and fantastic owners - we really felt at home; the staff and owners couldn't help us enough! V relaxing and beautifully appointed rooms and gardens. Imaginative and fun decor in dining room; great location. Definitely will go again! Lucy

The restaurant and rooms are cozy and decorated in the most amazing way. Walking around the grounds is like being transported into a magical garden. The rooms are big and modern with everything you could need. The food is the best I have had in Nairobi and the staff were extremely helpful and welcoming.

This lodge has a nice feel to it with interesting glass artwork scattered about the place, works of art & bits & pieces to enjoy throughout the establishment. The staff are friendly willing to bend over backwards for you (cooking us a late meal even though the kitchen was closed).
The rooms are clean & serviced everyday to a high standard.
If you like a dark room this is not the place for you as it's quite bright in the morning, however if you like a spacious bathroom with a bath tub to soak in all your dreams will come true.
I wasn't a fan of the food here it never quite got past the average point but our overall experience was enjoyable

An absolutely brilliant place to stay, friendly staff, good food and drink, peaceful surroundings and stunning rooms. Rob and Georgina are great hosts, nothing is too much of a problem for them. I would definately recommend Karen Country lodge to anyone who is looking for a nice relaxing stay.
