Good location

Location, pool, gym
The food is expensive compared with outside. The pool is good and the gym has a good variety of equipment, although some of it is dated and needs replacing. The security is adequate, but they check people come in with a scanner, but not the cases. This is a very weak area in their security strategy, and indicates the person scanner is just for show. The rooms were good and the breakfast very nice. It's in a good location.

Truly Professional

Staff, Staff, Facilities,
Thank you to your many wonderful staff who made my stay truly the best part about my trip to Kenya. George collected me from the airport and was a consummate professional. Nicolette massaged away my stresses like magic. Everyone I came across in the hotel and restaurants was extremely gracious in their service and manner. They anticipated my every need and made my stay amazing. Thank you!!

Third time visitor - will keep coming back

Location, services and helpful staff
Third time staying here. Love that staff member Cecilia remembered me from last time that I stayed, and came up to me to say hi. Now that's personal service! Also love to finish my day in the steam room and sauna. Very comfortable hotel with good security.

Good Stay

Room, Staff, Security
Excellent with one exception - the mattress was overly firm thus not very comfortable
Jennifer C. Couples Netherlands, August 10, 2014
Fantastic Hotel

Service, Location and Facilities
Absolutely brilliant - after 6 weeks in the bush it was nice to be in a Hotel with fantastic service. There was a misunderstanding with the Pick-up service and I was not picked up but they certainly made up for it in other ways to ensure I was satisfied during my stay. Would definitely return.
