First the good. The ambience, decor and general layout are excellent. The finishing in the rooms and the restaurant are especially top-notch. It is a new, small quiet hotel just on the perimeter of Nanyuki town. The staff are generally very helpful and prompt in assisting you. Even the boisterous poolside antics of the lads from the nearby British army training base are welcome- they bring a bit of life to an otherwise sedate environment.
Now the bad. The food and food service let the place down a bit. The food is just ok, not bad but not excellent either. The real problem is that the food takes ages to arrive. Even a simple meal like sandwich and fries takes 45min to an hour. True, this isnt a fast-food joint, but the wait is still too long. There seems to be a bottleneck in the kitchen area. My advice - pay for B&B only, then get lunch and dinner in one of the many eating places in Nanyuki town, which is like a 1-minute drive away and always open till late.
But overall, this is still THE hotel of choice in Nanyuki. The Mt.Kenya Safari Club is too expensive, and Sportsman's Arms hotel is dingy compared to Falcon Heights.
