Aberdare Country Club
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 July 2015

Stayed at the Country Club in July, for the second time after staying earlier in the year during February. The Club is located in a stunning area, with magic views of the Abaredare Ranges and Mt Kenya. The grounds and facilities of the Club are also excellent. There is a great pool, spa, gym, and tennis court for everyone to use. The rooms are very good, each with a small patio outside where you can enjoy the views. There is no television in the rooms, and no WIFI, but the main lounge area has a TV room that all guests can enjoy. The main lounge is lovely to sit around the open fire, and the staff are very accommodation. Although we didn't make use of the activities, you can go on game drives through nearby national parks and conservancies, including visiting the nearby Ark. The food at the Club is the only let down. When visiting in February breakfast and lunch were buffet style, with dinner ala carte. This time around however even dinner was buffet and I must say I preferred the ala carte options! Food quality and range is however great, and you certainly won't go hungry! Overall its a great place to get away for the weekend.

I stayed here for a night with a friend following a disappointing visit in October when we were disturbed by noise late at night. It was clear that the management had taken our earlier concerns seriously and now move potentially noisy groups away from other residents.
This hotel is set in a really lovely location making it a pleasant break for a weekend from Nairobi or when visiting the Aberdares. The setting and scenery around the hotel are very pretty. The pool and leisure facilities are excellent. While the rooms themselves are not luxurious they are more than adequate and the meals and service are satisfactory.

We took two interconnected rooms and had good comfort. No TVs is a plus for those looking for a peaceful out of town place. The area provides for Biking, trekking and even golfing, while mingling with wild animals (harmless). The quality and variety of food is excellent and the staff make you feel at home. And the pool is heated.

We did spend 2 nights at this place,.. though we had chance to do game drives in the aberdares national park, we choose to stay within the hotel, watching wildlife from our hotel terrace, and admiring the unending beautiful scenery of the landscape and great vegetation,..we loved this place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Aberdare Country Club, only a three-hour drive northeast from Nairobi, is nestled on a slope of Mweiga Hill in the Aberdare Highlands, part of the Great Rift Valley. This captivating site was selected by an English couple who had decided to settle in the land of their choosing - Kenya. It all happened many years ago; their children grew up there, but then moved on to different places. After almost half a century, their home, "The Steep", was sold and re-named "The Aberdare Country Club". Even though the property was developed beyond the imaginings of the original owners, they would be pleased with how carefully it has been nurtured and the grandeur it has maintained. This is highlighted in Monty Brown's book, "Haven Under the Hill" which says: "Today, despite the fast-changing tempo of the outside world, the old home still retains that comfortable, solid feeling based on traditions from a time when life proceeded at a far more leisurely and gentle pace". The Club's 1,300 acre wildlife sanctuary is teeming with eland, impalas, zebras, giraffes and the more reclusive leopards. It is a haven of unhurried charm set in a garden bursting with a profusion of colour, and with peacocks living within the lush green lawns. Walking through this unspoiled terrain is paradise. Play a round of golf, watched by a family of warthog, or fish for trout, play tennis or just relax by the pool within the beautiful gardens. From here you can see the sunset with the stunning Aberdare Mountains as a backdrop. ... more   less
