Ngong House is a serene oasis with lovely, comfortable and interesting rooms- in various shapes and sizes. The treehouses are fun and unique; the suite is easy and convenient; the log cabin is beautiful and spacious with room to play (bar, pool table) and our favorite- the cottage is pretty, relaxing and private. The attentive, kind and welcoming staff take...

It would take the voice of a pre-pubescent choir boy to sing the praises of this place highly enough; without doubt, the best part of a two year stay in Nairobi I have had the pleasure to experience- I was kicking myself that I'd only found it just as I was leaving. The treehouses/bandas themselves are immaculately clean and offer...

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night at room 8 - the morrocan themed one. The hotel is very homely and all staff are willing and ready to assist, the room was very cozy and they made sure that we were very comfortable, we checked in earlier and came later at night to find an unexpected rose...

Sadly we could only stay one night and then had a "half" day rental upon our departure. We got to experience a little piece of heaven in the middle of a busy busy city. We got the family lodge-- we want the blueprints for this outstanding building of huge pillars of wood, a family pit for snuggling, pool table, sunken...

Amazing place with great food and service. The tree house accommodation is brilliant and really well done. Close to both sheldrick elephant park and the giraffe park. Be careful, as the map on trip advisor is wrong although they are looking into this. Put Ndovu road into google maps.

We stayed at this property in April 2015 for three nights before a cruise from Mombasa. We were recommended to stay here by a friend who sung it's praises and we were not disappointed. The Driver Joseph picked us up at Nairobi airport as arranged, as we arrived at the hotel very late we weren't expecting Dinner to be ready...

Nairobi's hidden gem. If you need a break, but don't want to go too far from Nairobi, this is the place. Food was ok, but everything else was very good. A unique experience. Pick a tree house. Prepare to be surprised.

Ngong House has the style and the magic to feel like at your own home. It is not a 5*luxury hotel, it is luxury because it is in the middle of the bush although being in an urban area, because of the excellent food and the beautiful garden and surroundings.

It is our firsts trip to Kenya. Friends recommended we spend our first two nights in Kenya here, very spoilt from the time they picked us from the airport. Food was splendid. It is a cash only hotel, something we were not accustomed too but we learn as we go.

I just returned from a great weekend getaway at Ngong house. You even forget that the city is only 20 minutes away. Paul is welcoming and the staff are lovely. The food is simple and fabulous! Thank you!
