    This was a great hotel to spend our first night in Kenya and recharge the batteries. The hotel is lovely and they upgraded us in honour of Nicole’s “birthday month” as well providing a birthday cake and champagne – we can only assume you told them we were celebrating our 40th birthdays so thank you!
