Gibb's Farm review

Gibbs Farm was an excellent base for the visit to the Crater, despite the early start.

It was a complete contrast to the safari camps. Our cottage (room 2) was palatial with all the facilities.. The grounds and gardens were lovely and very well maintained.

The food was as you would expect very good making use of many of the home grown fruits and vegetables.

We can thoroughly recommend the laundry service.

We were lucky to have a very close encounter with a rhino during our visit to the Crater

Gibb's Farm review

One of us thought the place a bit "posh" for this safari, but he was out-voted by the wonderful tour of the coffee farm and two wonderful massages received by the two women in the group. The staff did fail to wake two of us up the first morning.

Fantastic break at Gibbs Farm

My husband, 11 year old niece and I enjoyed a wonderful break here coming of our four day tented camp experience in the Serengeti. The big bath and fireplace in our huge, comfortable room was amazing right off the bat!!

The lodge itself is beautiful and quite spacious, with lovely places to have tea to admire the view. Even the little gift store is nice. They also had an artist in residence while we were there. The farm itself provided many great activities for our niece, from making bread, to feeding the pigs, to milking cows.. and we enjoyed an interesting lecture about the Masai.

The food was first rate -- we had a special menu prepared just for us to account for my husband's food allergies. The people who run the Farm were so interesting as were the others we met there, and all the staff were so friendly and helpful. They even change the time of some activities to account for our game drive schedule. We hope to be back one day.

Beautiful setting

The setting at Gibb's Farm in the lush gardens and the coffee plantations at the edge of the forest is sensational and it's a great place from which to visit the Crater. The room was superb.

The food was more than plentiful. While we had excellent service from the staff we did feel that there was a corporate feel rather than a personal service.

Gibb's Farm review

There is a guilty pleasure in staying at Gibbs Farm.

The setting is gorgeous, though the extra miles to travel wore on us in the end.

Not quite up to standard although still good

The menus were overlong and complicated and it's a pity they didn't use their kitchen garden to better effect. We thought 3 courses sufficient in the evening - they had four. Everyone very friendly but the electrics in particular need updating, as do some of the doors and windows - it is a bit worrying to have to fiddle with a loose socket to make a light come on.

A new manager had just taken over and will probably make changes in the near future. We wish him luck as it is a fabulous place.

Gibb's Farm review

Excellent location for the crater visit...superb bungalows with cosy fires lit in the evenings for extra comfort.

We enjoyed a talk about the coffee plantation when we first arrived and thought maybe an extra day here would have been nice to take advantage of all the activities they had on offer.
