This was the first time we stayed at the House of Waine and would definitely return! Everyone was so kind and helpful, the rooms were very nice, including being equipped with usb ports for charging electronics after long flights, mini frig in room w/ complimentary snacks and juice. We stayed a couple of nights before our safari and then after the safari we had day rooms booked which were a blessing. House of Waine stored our hard sided luggage while on safari for 2 weeks. The food was also excellent. Beautiful, secure spot in Karen. Thank you House of Waine! - lippa
We arrived from the US after long flights. We were met with champagne and very delightful staff members. This was not a surprise because we had read GREAT reviews of this hotel. We were taken to the Malaika Suite - the BIG Room - and it was magnificent. Sitting out on the back veranda of our suite, we had drinks and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Dinner was served in the dining room and it was terrific. The beef fillet and seared skirt steak were perfect (rare). We enjoyed the beautiful gardens all around the hotel.
This is a very nice place to unwind. - Patricia W
We arrived at House of Waine after more than 24 hours in transit. We were tired. We were met by gracious staff members who provided hot towels and cold drinks. The check-in process was simple and fast, and we were in our room relaxing very shortly. We had delicious room service and went to bed. We listened to the sounds of Africa waking up from our balcony. The full English breakfast was delightful and delicious. We did not stay at this place for long, but we wish we could have stayed longer. The decor was charming, and more importantly, the staff was most helpful. - LoriAylett
