            A more interesting hotel”

            Location was convenient for what we wanted. Small friendly hotel with character. Lovely setting

            We arrived late from the airport and our room was still occupied by the previous guests, so we had to wait a little while for the manager to come back to sort out a room for us. However, he was apologetic and gave us a nice room. We were only there for a short visit. The garden is lovely with many birds.

            Food was great, however the hot water was non-existent, and it was noisy on a Friday night.

            Great pied-a-terre to explore Karen”

            The grounds, the small on-site boutique shops, friendliness of staff

            Our first impression was not great, to be honest. Due to a very delayed flight, we arrived tired and hungry at around 2200, to be told that there was no food available. Not a great start. We got a drink and managed to persuade the barman to serve us a couple of the bananas that were sitting behind the bar, but went to bed on near-empty stomachs. Thankfully things improved from there and we had a very comfortable night's sleep. The rooms were clean and well-kempt. The bathroom looked like it would have been the height of fashion in the 1950's, but everything worked. The breakfast was good, if not quick, and the staff arranged a very friendly and reasonable taxi driver to help us explore the area. We had a pleasant walk around the "Nature Trail" in the grounds, before dinner and drinks on the terrace. The food was reasonable, with a heavily Indian-influenced menu. There were some large birds which sat on the roof and cawed loudly in the early hours, disturbing my wife's sleep, but thankfully not loud enough to disturb mine! Check out was a bit disturbing though, as we had to leave at 0730; before the accountant had arrived. He told the barman over the phone that we should leave 10,000 KES with him and that they would credit any difference to our account. Still waiting for that credit.
