The Sportsman's Arms Hotel is conveniently located in Nanyuki town. When we arrived at the reception the lady at the front office looked overwhelmed with the number of people checking in. We were given a room in the new wing near the swimming pool. The room was not up to standard of hotels we have been to. The towels were...

The hotel has a very large number of rooms. It appears to be the center for Nanyuki's nightlife; has a disco and several lounges / bars around its facility. The conferencing facilities, given their location right next to the disco, seemed to be an afterthought....

Had a group of school kids staying after playing the Masai Cricket Warriors in Laikipi. The staff were superbly helpful before, during and after the trip, and arranged an excellent supper in a private room. Rooms were great too...will be back. Sporting Safaris Kenya Ltd

This place is just like any other hotel, nothing very spectacular. Spent 1 day here and liked the environment, the parking, accommodation and the club. Good for teambuilding, retreat and a getaway from the busy city life.

Good team building grounds, bland food, musty smelly unkempt rooms and not to forget leaking bathroom, James attempts to salvage this with good customer service, This establishment needs to do something about their older rooms.

We visited for dinner and drinks. The bar was somewhat old fashioned, but the staff friendly and efficient. A roaring log fire at the bar give a nice ambience. The bar food was average but the service excellent. The night club called Pirates was on the next floor up and was straight from the late 70's. all in all not...
