This was a business trip and the company's "usual" choice of hotel was fully booked, so we were looking for something comparable. We were not disappointed.
As others have said already, this is a traditional hotel and country club with a colonial feel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The lack of air conditioning in the rooms in no way compromises comfort. No tea & coffee-making facilities in the room was the only negative. Public spaces are spotlessly clean and there are different areas to relax, read, have a drink or watch TV. Service was faultless.
The hotel benefits from a heated pool, gym and massage facilities, as well as the golf course itself. Not being a golfer myself, I can't comment on the challenge presented by their course.
Two options for eating - the pool-side "Conservatory" menu, offering snacks, pizzas, sandwiches and burgers and an à la carte menu available in the main restaurant downstairs. Food is adequate and not particularly expensive, but nothing to write home about, in my opinion. Mostly European in style, but some local dishes are on offer.
The hotel itself is situated some way from the centre of Nairobi and stands in isolated grounds, but it is still only a short 10-15 minute drive from the Village Market, with its various attractions (shopping and restaurants, primarily). The peace and tranquility of the surroundings was much appreciated, after a long day's work.
All in all, should I find myself in Nairobi again, I would choose the Windsor over the other "trendier" hotel any day.
