A landmark historic hotel in the centre of Nairobi, Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel is set in lush gardens and courtyards that insulate it beautifully from the bustle of the city. Without losing its reminiscent air of colonial history, the hotel has been renovated over the years with all the modern amenities of a luxury establishment and lives up to its 100 year reputation as Nairobi’s best-known hotel in style. The central location is ideal for business travellers and is also a traditional starting point for many Kenya safaris, as well as being a favourite meeting place for locals and visitors alike.
The Norfolk’s 170 guest rooms and suites are set in several wings built around leafy courtyards and private gardens and offer a choice of views and outlooks. Rooms opening onto the original courtyard and the fountain garden are popular, the ground-floor ones having a little patio, and some prefer the good-sized rooms overlooking the pool at the back of the hotel which are very peaceful. All the air-conditioned rooms are very comfortably furnished in tasteful traditional decor with marble en-suite bathrooms. There is excellent wi-fi throughout which is free if you join the Fairmont President’s club.
The Lord Delamere Terrace is a well-known Nairobi social meeting place and serves drinks and light meals throughout the day, as well as being the perfect place for delicious alfresco breakfasts from the buffet and cooked to order menu. Then there is Tatu, the signature restaurant combining sophisticated cuisine with excellent steaks and seafood, and the Cin Cin wine bar with its chic and cozy ambience. Or relax in complete privacy with the in-room dining service that brings freshly cooked meals to you.
The secluded outdoor swimming pool is surrounded by gardens with the spa and health club adjoining it. Work out at the fitness centre, enjoy a massage or a sauna and then relax by the pool with a snack from the poolside restaurant. There is also a business centre and extensive conference facilities for business travellers. The beautiful location and friendly service make Fairmont The Norfolk Hotel an oasis of peace at the heart of the city.
