We had a great time at the Fairmount, However, the booking reservation we made through Agoda was not reflecting with Fairmount Hotel when we arrived. The hotel had informed us that it was a bed and breakfast which was not the case while booking. There needs to be communication between the booking agents and hotels.
This hotel has a great reputation in Kenya, which is a bit over-blown if you've travelled outside the country. The rooms are tired and dated. They look like something out of a 1930s movie -- and indeed all the photos on the wall indicate this once was a favorite stop of movie stars of that era. But the food more than makes up for it, and it's a great place to relax. I also really enjoyed the game drives, even though they ended up being really expensive because I was alone. If you go with a number of people, the price goes down significantly. The best thing about the hotel is the staff who are not only professionally but very friendly -- and they were just as friendly and welcoming to my Kenyan friends who came to pick me up for the drive back to Nairobi as they were to me, a paying guest. That is the test of a great hotel. This is a good stop on a circuit of Kenya, but keep your expectations in check.

Its layout, is grand; the lawns and nature; rooms and service is very good. Spacious rooms, attentive and fast service.
Had heard a lot about it. Was expecting a lot and was still delighted with the two nights we spent there. The views of the valley and Mount Kenya are breathtaking. Being in the middle of nature and still in such comfort and luxury is amazing.
Will definatly come back.
