Fairmont, The Norfolk


Hotel overview

The Norfolk is Nairobi's grandest and oldest hotel. Set in mature gardens in the centre of the city, it has been a meeting place and first port of call for generations of travellers to East Africa's spectacular game parks. Recently taken over by the Canadian Fairmont Group, the Norfolk retains its century-old charm. Close to the National Theatre and the Central Business District, the Norfolk has all the amenities of an international hotel but retains an intimacy that others often lack. There is a choice of four restaurants at the hotel, ranging from the grandest in Kenya to much more casual. All of these serve very good food, as does the Delamere Terrace where city businessmen still meet for a drink after work. This bar is where many a safari has set out from in the hundred years since the Norfolk first opened its doors.
