I'm a UK citizen. I will stay in the Four Points Sheriton hotel, Nairobi for one night. I believe the hotel is inside the airport compound but not in the airport building. I fly out to Uganda the next morning. Do I need a transit visa? The website says you don't if you are not leaving the airport but I'm not sure if a hotel inside the perimeter fence but outside the terminal counts!

thanks you

Yes, you will need a transit visa, as you're going landside.
