Bland food, no ala Carte to cater for special needs, food is not child friendly disinterested service from the staff, desert was super disappointing, and on top of that a cover charge to access the restaurant, scenic view and you can espy a few animals as you drive in. Truthfully, this place operating way below its potential. Everything could be better. The reception at the entrance is almost unfriendly, the staff are totally disinterested and segregating in their attitude, the food is hopelessly tasteless. Small variety of very badly prepared options. The only saving grace is the environment which is spectacular.
Aberdare National Park is underrated (in our opinion). It is harder to spot game (although it is there; we saw 4 of the Big 5) because it is hilly (rising to almost 13,000 feet) and heavily forested. But it well worth a visit. The Aberdare Country Club was built by the British back when they ruled most of the world. It still has the ambiance of an exclusive club. And we were treated like royalty because we were the only overnight guests at the Club. The room was clean and comfortable, the food excellent and the staff wonderful. It was great sitting by the fire in the sitting room (it gets chilly at that altitude) and finding hot water bottles in our beds when we returned to the room. An additional benefit is the private conservancy that surrounds the Club where you can see Zebra and Reticulated Giraffes (among other animals) while either walking (with guide) or in your safari car.…
We proceeded to Aberdare Country Club after stating at The ARK, that was amazing. The country club has a very beautiful n relaxing ambiance. The food was good especially they took care of special diet requirements with great passion and wowed us with wonderful dishes. Thank you Chef George and team, that was outstanding. The staff are really very friendly. Great place to relax n also visit Aberdare parks.
We brought our clients to Aberdare Country Club for 2 days and stayed there ourselves as well. Solomon works at the main office and is amazing as always. The birds, landscaping, animals are fantastic. They were a bit lax with COVID protocol. Staff did not always wear masks or if they did might not have been on correctly, manager was not wearing one the day we left. Temperatures were not taken and hand washing not enforced. Guests wearing masks was not enforced. Because of a lack of clients the staff appeared to have been cut back and the last breakfast we ate we literally had to go find someone to find the kitchen staff to serve us. We know its hard with the lock downs and lack of clients - but we all still need to do our best for those that are there.
Aberdare Country Club is a award winning hotel. It has a consevrancy where people could visit, hiking, see animals, horse riding, walking safari, bird watching, and playing golf. The food is always good and delicious. It's very cold in the evening because of the altitute. We love their room decoration because you could feel the histroy of the hotel. We have send many groups to Aberdare Country Club, they always treat our clients as their family. We would recommend to hotel to anyone!
