After arriving back in Kenya we transferred to The Karen Blixen Cottages, a place of beautiful peace and quiet. Our room wasn't quite ready but at such an early hour that wasn't unexpected... we didn't have to wait long though and we were able to go and have a relaxed breakfast beside the pool... the staff couldn't be more helpful and the coffee was wonderful. The rooms are airy and spotless certainly we slept really well here... a perfect place to either start or finish a safari holiday in Kenya.

Stayed: February 2017

I had looked forward to staying at the cottages for some time. I decided to treat myself and at $400 a night it should be some treat. The room was charming overall but filthy as was the pool. The furniture was shabby and not in a chic way. Most disappointing of all, the staff are wearing threadbare ill fitting clothes. So obviously the owners care very little about them. The staff obviously tried their best but need leadership.

This is a beautiful place and you can walk away not only with a full stomach but with paintings done on the spot. You can choose to dine outside under a shade of trees and watch birds singing. This is the experience i got last year with both friends and colleagues taking end of year dinner . The setting was just perfect with candles burning away, conversations flowing and mouth watering beef disappearing into our palates. The evening was well spent and I am thankful that I did not have to settle the bill.

Decided to treat ourselves, however found that - reputation far exceeded reality! No hot water on both days, after having asked twice for someone to see to it, breakfast was passable for an establishment a tenth the cost, and cleanliness suspect after having to have the bathroom re cleaned after check in.... Beautiful gardens and chalets are not a substitute for poor services! Will not be back.

I just went to Karen Blixen Coffee Garden with my husband. We live in Nairobi and planned to have breakfast as we saw some good reviews; and also on their website where is it explicitly mentioned that they are opened from 7am to 10pm and breakfast is served since the first hours.
We arrived there and found the place completely empty. We asked the waiter if it was like this everyday and he said it was full after 12:30.
We then asked if we could have breakfast and the waiter said there was no breakfast served, they only served food after 12:30 pm !!! We arrived at 10am.
How great!!! We crossed half the city to go to a place that is so well recommended but the information about it is completely wrong, we simply lost our time and money of the taxi.
Shame on you guys for not being clear on working hours, working days and whatever is necessary to know to visit a place like this.
I would have given zero starts if it was possible!
For the record, we decided to walk from there until Marula Mercantile which we knew already, is close by and has the best eggs benedict in town. Go there!
