Trevor, Charity and Hannah were wonderful hosts for my family and I. Their lodge is simple, warm and inviting. As previous reviewers have noted, you are treated as one of the family when you are staying here.
It is located quite a way from the city center, which is both a pro and con. The pro is that you get away from the chaos, the con is that it is a fairly expensive cab ride to go anywhere. It was a $50 ride for us to go out to dinner at the closest decent restaurants.
We stayed here for a couple of days immediately after arriving in Kenya, which was perfect. The Kikuyu Lodge was the perfect place to unwind after a 30 hour trip (yuck!) and to get adjusted to the time change and travel fatigue.
Another pro to staying here is that Trevor can set you up with all your safari and touring arrangements. He organized a 3 day trip to the Masai Mara for us and then a few days later (after we had moved into our apartment), he helped us hire a car and driver for the day so that we could tour the sites within the city (Nairobi Museum, Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Center, Carnivore, and even a side trip to the mall!).
Prior to leaving on this trip, I spent many, many hours researching and sending emails, and Trevor was the most helpful person I encountered. Some of the 5 star resorts won't even return your email or answer your questions (poorly I might add) with some type of form repsonse. Not Trevor! He responded quickly and personally to every question I had, and I was very grateful for this.
