Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel, Nairobi
The Norfolk Hotel has played a leading role in Kenya's colourful
history, and continues to be Nairobi's finest and best-known luxury
hotel. The town and later the modern city of Nairobi grew up around
the hotel, which still has its own private tropical
gardens. The hotel is still the traditional starting point for safaris
and the Lord Delamere Terrace is modern Nairobi's most famous meeting
place, where drinks and light meals are served continuously from morning until midnight.
Fairmont The Norfolk was expanded in 1999 and subsequently renovated in time for its centennial, which it celebrated in 2004. The Nairobi hotel now offers accommodations in 165 guest rooms and suites, a heated outdoor swimming pool (below), health club with gym, sauna and steam room, beauty salon, book shop and gift shops.
All bedrooms are luxuriously furnished, have plush carpeting and deep velour soft furnishings. They all have bedside lamps, dressing tables, and built-in wardrobes, besides luggage racks. Every room has a telephone and telephone directory, direct dialling facilities, a satellite TV, electrical mosquito repellent and air conditioning. Back-up generators in the hotel allow for 24-hour electricity.
There is a wide choice of dining, to suit every mood and palate. The Tatu Restaurant is a contemporary American steak house, featuring dry-aged premium Kenyan Angus beef, as well as a variety of seafood. The Swimming Pool Restaurant is the perfect setting for leisurely lunches; light refreshments and drinks are served throughout the day. The Tea Room offers traditional high-tea in a comfortable setting. The relaxed setting of the Cin Cin Wine Bar is the perfect spot to unwind, while the Lord Delamere Terrace (below) is the ideal spot for people watching.
