We had a night stop at the House of Waine as we were transiting to the Mara the next day. We had a large suite on the first floor which was very luxurious and well appointed. I loved the woodwork everywhere with sweeping staircases and huge doors. The place has a very colonial feel to it especially when you sit...

We stayed at the House of Waine after arriving in Nairobi in mid-September, 2016. After 24 hours of being on the plane, we arrived at about 10:30 PM. Amazingly, the very courteous and helpful staff offered to fix us dinner at that hour! We said thanks, but no, and collapsed into the very comfortable beds. Coffee and tea arrived early...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at House of Waine. The attention to detail is impeccable and was a lovely way to finish my travel plans in Kenya. A warm welcome with an oversized suite it was always going to be a place I would never forget.

You feel yourself transported back in time to colonial Africa of a hundred years ago. This beautiful house has been converted to a guest house. Quiet, tranquil and very relaxing. Great service, great food and exceptional rooms. This is the ideal place to relax a couple of days after a long flight or before the long flight home. I suggest...

Spent 2 nights in the honeymoon suite which was large yet cozy. Bathroom was modern and tastefully done. The rooms are also very quiet, unfortunately we were unable to enjoy the balcony due to rain on both days. The staff was extremely courteous and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the pear pastry, which the chef was happy to share the recipe...
