This is would have to be the nicest place I have stayed at during my three visits to Nairobi. The room had a small lounge area and a balcony as well as a large bathroom with a spa bath and a walk-in closet. The space was extremely comfortable considering it was just me.
There was new development of additional residences and suites being built during my stay which was a little loud and started early in the morning. Best to keep your side window curtains closed to prevent any nosey builders enjoying a look in.
The breakfast in the morning was fantastic and nothing beats some freshly cooked eggs and bacon to start your day right. I did dine with only another table being occupied so the service was fantastic and plenty of space to sit. Front office staff were also very helpful, genuine and happy. They did not charge me for the bottle of wine I opened that was very old and undrinkable.
The location of the property like nearly all hotels in Nairobi does require you to use a taxi or hotel car service to get anywhere. This would be my only problem.
Excellent place to stay in Nairobi with all the creature comforts of home plus more.

One of the advantages of the ‘free African massage’ (and we’ve had a lot of them in the last few weeks) is that it works wonders for the bladder, so back at the camp off trotted Shirley to the nearest toilet tent.
Unzipped the tent to find…..a long black snake wriggling at the base of the toilet. This is not at all conducive to having a comfortable toilet stop so it was a very quick run up the slightly hilly track to our ...
... is 850 acres big and it divided into two categories. The coffee plantation is 500 acres big and the dairy is 350 acres. We were guided by the manager, Levin, and he told us we were the first tourists to ever visit them! They have 130 milking cows that are all milked 3 times per day. We spent an hour talking about the coffee production at the plantation and another hour at the dairy. Their coffee is exported all over the world and is found in ...
... alternative. Only problem was it was stored under the truck so I was continually asking for them to get the water out.
The camp sites were mostly clean, with a few exceptions. They were also mostly sand with no grass to put your tent on. There were a few outstanding for cleanliness and a few standouts for the opposite. All the campsites were in the middle of nowhere so once you were set up you were a captive audience and couldn't go anywhere to look around. Putting up the tent ...
... of the communication was purely laughing and playing with them, and one of the biggest realizations I had was just how resilient these children are even through situations that I consider my worst unimaginable nightmare. I don't feel right blogging about why some of the children are at the orphanage, but ask me if you're interested. Although volunteering (especially for such a short time) can often feel like you're making such little impact, their gratitude showed that even ...
