“Exactly what we needed :)”
Reviewed 25 November 2016

My husband and I would like to express our gratitude and recommend highly, this amazing spot for a romantic night. We stayed here after our wedding before the honeymoon and boy were we in for a treat! I'd been to the hotel severally on business, but felt that due to close proximity to our wedding venue and their personalized and excellent service, they would still offer what we needed for our special night. We were right! We booked the place several months in advance, and they also allowed us to also select our favorite room before hand. On the night itself, we received a royal and exceedingly friendly welcome. We found Amo, and he did everything he could to make our stay memorable. They gave us great meal, a comfortable room and undisturbed time to catch some much needed rest before our flight the next morning. When we came back a few weeks later we found that they had even tried to preserve for me my wedding bouquet which we had left behind! It is gestures such as these, which we remember for a long time to come. Asanteni sana.

I stayed in this delightful hotel while inspecting a school in Nairobi. It's very nicely appointed-colonial style rooms-and the service is excellent. Dinner was very good- the beef is terrific. A nice quiet oasis in Nairobi.

This little gem is every couples dream accommodation especially on special occassions like weddings or anniversary. House of Waine was our home on our wedding night and we cannot thank the staff enough for the love and kindness shown to us on our special day. Nothing was too much to ask of them. The room itself was spacious, clean and cosy, with elegant fittings and furnishings. After such a long tiring day, this was the perfect abode, we are glad we made the right choice. We were welcomed with cold drinks and a bottle of sparkling wine. The next day we were allowed a free late check-out which was such a welcome gesture since we really needed time to rest. The breakfast served in the room was sumptuous and we even had complimentary snacks in our fridge. What a wonderful stay. Thank you House of Waine, you crowned our day, we shall be back.
