We arrived late from our flight. They were waiting for us, waited on us o unwind with drink and dinner which was quite good. The next day we had lunch in the garden. Cocktail hour was getting acquainted with a diverse guests who were in the city for a variety of reasons, business, NGO's, tourism. Our host, a Belgian retired from the diplomatic service, visited over an open campfire outside and then organized our dinner groups so that we enjoyed an interesting conversation, with wonderful food. A more relaxing place, particularly in busy Nairobi, you will not find. The rooms were interesting and comfortable. If I had to find something lacking, I'd have to try. It's the kind of place you think about after you've been there.
