The hotel stands solid, comfortable and elegant in well-tented rolling lawns accented with palms. Lush tropical gardens are laid out in English style to frame distant views of Mt. Kenya.

The hotel building itself has a certain graciousness of the past. Breakfast and lunch buffets are served on the open veranda with Chippendale chairs and white linen.
