One of the finest hotels in Kenya. The food was amazing and the location is in the middle of a jungle. The service is also amazing no complaints. At night we got to see buffaloes 🐃 hyenas and different kinds of birds

We had an amazing experience staying there. Rooms were clean and maintained. Service was very good. Would recommend to people who want to just go and relax. The waterhole is an added bonus. Upgrade to the suite if you can.

Not what I expected. didn't expect luxury but also didn't expect very shabby looking slightly rundown and in need of some TLC everywhere! Not the hotels fault that it rained so NO animals came down to the watering hole all night.

About
Description
Located in Aberdare National Park, this world-renowned rustic Treehouse is over 80 years old and was recently fully refurbished. This game viewing lodge was originally built in 1932 and is famous as the place More where the then-Princess Elizabeth ascended to the British Throne. The father King George VI died on 5th Feb 1952 the night she spent at Treetops while on honeymoon.Treetops lies in the path of an ancient Elephant migratory route between the Aberdare Ranges and Mt Kenya National park, and is strategically sited right in front of a natural watering hole and salt lick.With large windows fitted in all guest rooms, restaurant and lounge guests can drink in the sight of Elephants, Buffalos, Rhinos and more from all areas including the view deck on top floor of the building. Die-hard animal lovers needn't worry about missed sightings, even into the early hours of the morning. An optional buzzer in the rooms alerts the guests when a spectacle is unfolding at the waterhole. Game drives and a lecture about Treetops are also available to the guests.This lodge-on-stilts is accessed through a gradual ramp to the top floor and a Tree grows right through the building. There are 36 en-suite guest rooms that include 3 spacious suites and 33 twin rooms that can be converted into double rooms. A disabled friendly room is located on the first floor. Less
