Only went for the evening meal and it was superb. Security was excellent throughout and the staff were very good indeed. Chose the fillet steak (around 1300 Kenyan schillings) and it is was very good, came cooked as requested. Not really any Kenyan food on offer, more British, Italian and Indian- but if that is what you are looking for...

Nice and clean and settling. A little road noise but it's close to the town but we have a few more days left. Close to a few good places and excited to see what comes out to play while we driving around.

Totally disappointed in this place - it was our final stop in a weeks of various safaris - all the other establishments had allowed us to make a reservation and pay on checkout - they were all cheaper and offered full board including afternoon teas ... this one was on a bed and breakfast basis and the facilities were very...

I was invited along by friends for evening drinks. The bar scene is sophisticated and pleasant with good service. The restaurant is nicely laid out though the menu is a little limited. A positive point is there is a good range of single malt whiskey behind the bar. All in all, worth a visit, albeit it is slightly expensive.

Visited this place last year with my husband and a couple of friends for game night. The restaurant was cozy and the food was great.What surprised us were the cozy little huts.They were tiny but had all the amenities you could think of in a hotel room.We enjoyed the staff's hospitality and I celebrated my birthday in style..

My husband and i stayed two nights at Kongoni. We were given the referral by a friend. Kongoni is an awesome place to just R.E.S.T. There are no tv's in the room so you can get caught up on your reading and bond with your spouse; it's also very quiet and serene. The staff are very friendly and helpful; the...

The traditionally Hut designed rooms are clean and modern on the inside. The night was comfortable and relaxing and the cost per night was affordable when compared to nearby facilities. The common areas - dining, bar etc were cosy! I will definitely return after a nice stay.

Stayed for one night with our two boys. Our room was comfortable and clean. But they should have a better shower head. sinks could do with mixers instead of a hot water tap and a cold water one. Food was ok, were disappointed as they couldn't make the pizza we ordered and asked us to change to a different one,...
