What a gorgeous property and house! You get a sense of colonial living with beautiful gardens, fountain and pool, dark wood bar and sitting areas. We booked a day room to freshen up pre-flight home, but I would love to stay here next time. Nice bathroom with quality toiletries, a charging strip with multiple types of plugs, and free mini bar. Welcoming and friendly staff.

Lovely hotel, friendly and efficient staff. Rooms all individually decorated with names, not numbers. ,Tub, separate shower. Comfortable beds and even good reading lights.
Had a light late dinner when we arrived, which was perfect. Breakfast, which is included, was superb! Good bar, with comfortable seating in lounge.
Lovely pool. Set on a nice property in Karen, a lovely suburb of Nairobi.

Even though we arrived after 11 p.m., the staff was willing to prepare us something to eat if we so desired.

Our room was the Pwani on the second floor, back at the end of the hall. Nice view of the grounds from the small balcony. Very comfortable and spacious.

Breakfast was included and was very tasty. We both enjoyed the Kenyan coffee and tea. I'd go back just for that!

Staff was very friendly and helpful.

We'd stay again.

We stayed here for one night before heading home after our safari vacation. Our only regret was that we did not stay longer. The staff told us that they wanted us to treat the hotel as our home, and they meant it. It is a small boutique hotel with a lovely restaurant but really does have more of a feel of a luxurious mansion than a hotel. We stayed in the Malaika Suite, which was beautiful and enormous. We hope to return to Kenya and when we do, we will book a longer stay here.

Beautiful and quiet away from traffic noise. after travelling a long way, we ended up in the gardens. The place is like a home with sound of water fall at the back. Unfortunately, I was disappointed in the vegetarian offers.
