“Simple and good business option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Located right next door to the Fairview, now with key card gate access directly into the garden. This adds value to the Country Lodge, because you have restaurant options and that wonderful garden and pool right there. The security is taken seriously, but is not limiting. Rooms are simple, no hairdryer in your room but there are a few available at the reception. A small and basic gym with treadmill. The wifi is good most of the time, but in a few rooms a little less reliable. A little noisy in the rooms, especially if you are at the entrance to a passage where there is a security door, or new the stairwells. The beds have been improved and are not as hard as they used to be!

Room Tip: The back rooms in the block with a lift cost a little more, but they are quieter.

This is a modern, safe and good value bed and breakfast hotel. The decore is sparse Ikea style. You get an efficent, clean hotel for your hotel. It is connected to the more upmarket hotel Fairview Hotel next door. It has five restaurants. I ate at the French Bistro which was excellent fine dining. It cost as much as my Country Lodge night. It was worth it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I stayed in the Country Lodge for a total of six days in May 2014. First, it probably the safest hotel I have ever stayed in - security is good (its just up the street from the High Commission of the State of Israel), with keys needed to go in and out of the building and lots of security inside. Second, it is quiet - rooms are spacious, but simple, clean and efficient for the business traveller. Third, it is attached to the Fairview which is the best hotel in Nairobi with several good places to eat. Nice pool and pool bar. If I come back to Nairobi, this is where I will stay.

Room Tip: Ground floor is quieter than upper floors.
