Lovely property with beautiful grounds and English Colonial feel. set in lovely gardens. Comfortable bedrooms and lounging areas. Lovely breakfast. There are no elevators but the property only has two floors. Great service. I would not hesitate to recommend this place.

This is a really beautiful hotel with the feel of a private villa. The furnishings in the public areas and in the rooms are of a very high standard. The gardens are wonderful and perfect for relaxing. The staff are friendly and helpful. All in all a very relaxing and welcoming place to stay.

I stayed in this delightful hotel while inspecting a school in Nairobi. It's very nicely appointed-colonial style rooms-and the service is excellent. Dinner was very good- the beef is terrific. A nice quiet oasis in Nairobi.
