"Karen Gables review"

1 night Arrived 4 Jan 2023
"This hotel was amazing. There was so much character to this home.

The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We had both breakfast and dinner here. The room was quaint and the bathroom was large. This was one of the most beautiful and comfortable properties I have ever stayed at.

It was a nice quiet out of the way place in Nairobi." See all these reviews: 9n in Kenya

"A very pleasant place to start or end a trip.

The gardens are basically part of the forest and had many birds, as well as monkeys. there was a pool, which again, we failed to use.

The food was excellent and the staff were very helpful and accommodating." See all these reviews: 14n in Kenya

"A beautiful building and garden with friendly staff and owner. A lovely evening meal and picnic breakfast.

Would recommend a jumper/jacket - Nairobi was a lot colder than any of the other places we stayed." See all these reviews: 14n in Kenya
