We stayed at the hotel for one night before going on a six night Safari. We arrived at the hotel about 8.30 in the morning and had to wait for aprox. 45 minutes before our room was available, which was understandable at this time of day as check out is 11.00. The room was a good size and comfortable. The bed was large but was a little hard. The bathroom was a little bit on the small side but had everything that we needed, the towels were changed around 7pm. There was a TV in the room which had a choice of channels.
We used the pool for the day and it was really nice, the sunloungers were the cumfiest that we have ever been on and towels were provided. The pool area was very quiet and nice for relaxing after the overnight flight.
There is a restaurant and bar around the pool which is also open at night. This is where we ate and it was fine and was quite reasonably priced. There is also a bar inside with a little entertainment i.e piano player and singer again it was ok for the one night we spent here.
We had breakfast included in the price we had paid. Again this was good with a good choice of hot or cold food, fruit, yogurts, pastries and juice. It was a good start for the long journey to Samburu National Park.
We did not leav the hotel so I can't really coment on the location of the hotel apart from it was aprox. a 30 minute drive from the airport. I can't comment if the hotel was good value for money or not as it was included as a package for our Safari.
I would recomend this hotel for a safari stopover or a few days in Nairobi.
