The gardens and views are fantastic here. When we sat down for lunch, the food was bland and really not worth the money charged. We ordered a number of dishes vegetarian, beef, chicken fish and pasta. None of it was impressive. A few of us ordered fresh fruit as dessert and it was not fresh. The fruit was dry and...

We booked the Country Club and Ark . Reached the Country Club to be received with a welcome drink. Immediate attention and we were informed of the facilities and the time of the shuttle to Ark. Children enjoyed the pool and tennis. Buffet lunch was good sure the INDIAN Vegetarians would probably have a issue. The Dal Makhani was just...

Aberdares Country Club is only a 2.5 hour drive from Nairobi on great roads. The property is itself is very picturesque and there is an air of colonial past as you enjoy the view over the Aberdare mountain range. The rooms are basic but clean. The resident price for bed and breakfast are expensive but not excessive, do however be...

We had lunch here on the penultimate day of our trip to Kenya before travelling to stay at the Ark Lodge. The surroundings are breath-taking and the food fantastic. I'd certainly recommend spending a couple of hours here to relax before moving onto the Ark

Hi guys, Beautiful garden, a lot of animals in the garden. Warthogs, zebra's, bushboks. If you are a birder, then there is a lot for you to spot. Fire finch, waxbill, white browed sparrow weaver, robin chat. The rooms have an open fire place. So the first thing you do, when you enter you room: open the windows. The fire...

This was the first stop on our safari and was perfect for those who had just arrived in Kenya the previous night. Our room was half of a small building sharing a huge fireplace, up on the hillside. It was quiet, and they lit the fire for us at night as there is no heat here. It was charming! We...

We spent two nights at the Country Club then one night at the ARK. We were looking for a place to relax and enjoy just being with our friends who live in Kijabe. It proved to be the perfect spot. It is a very relaxing location. We enjoyed swimming in the heated swimming pool while watching the peacock and bushbuck...

Rooms are nice--some with Fireplace --can get cool at nights. Food is good and good service and can see some animals from your location. Some right on 9-home golf course. Went with family and was good to have rooms next to each other. More of relaxing and enjoy views type place. Not full of activities--though one can schedule game drives...

We've been visiting here for over 36 years. The service, setting, scenic views, and facilities are wonderful. We are members at the club and come here several times a year. The food is average, but acceptable. Tourists can be a bit overwhelming. But that is not the fault of the club. Heated pool, golf course, sauna/spa, all very nice indeed....

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
