Can't describe the property in words. It has it all, an orphanage at the entrance, biking options inside, a maze, experience of being on equator, horse riding. To top it all an evening high tea with a cultural performance. Awesome cottages and a very friendly staff. A must visit for a great holiday. Highly recommended!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We stayed for 4 days of a business meeting at this wonderful place and enjoyed the location, the service, the view and the food equally - it was all beyond our expectations. The main building literally is located on the equator. The restaurant offers a great view on the hotel gardens and the nearby jungle area and - in the...

The hotel/club has excellent service. Right from the gate you get a sense of professionalism and enthusiastic service staff. The food has greatly continued to improve as compared to my last 3 years visit. The kitchen team is on the roll. The Cottages, especially no.8 are fantastic. Pick up membership as well. I enjoyed the 9 hole golfing.

We stayed at Mount Kenya Safari Club many years ago on honeymoon. In those days, it was run by Lonrho and we had a fabulous time. We therefore returned this April with some apprehension about how things might have changed. Certainly the hotel has been updated and has less of the colonial club style than it used to. It retains...

I have stayed here previously. The hotel itself is stunning and the rooms and cottages are superb but the food service dreadful. Nothing worse than cold buffet food. No table service. At breakfast I had to set my own table search for cutlery and ask three times for tea. Admittedly it's Easter and busy but no excuse at these prices....
