Norfolk Hotel

Norfolk Hotel

2008 Note: This hotel is now owned by Fairmont Hotel group and has been renovated.

Older than the London Ritz, younger than The Savoy, no other hotel in Kenya has as rich a history as the Norfolk, one of the world's most romantic hotels.

When it was first opened on Christmas Day, 1904, it was to spearhead traditions of hospitality in East Africa which are still unmatched today. It is said that Nairobi as a capital city grew up around the Norfolk. From the new and old worlds the first guests came, many of noble birth. The guest list made its name as a legend then and still does so today.

The Norfolk Hotel is a thirty minute drive from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and a short distance from Nairobi's shopping and business district.

Restaurants and Bars

  • The Ibis Restaurant
  • The Lord Delamere Restaurant
  • The Lord Delamere Terrace - the ideal meeting place and where most people gather
  • The Poolside Restaurant
  • Hibiscus Lounge & Cocktail Bar
They also provide venues for cocktail parties, grand dinner and dance functions and business luncheons.
Safaris and Sightseeing
Long established as the starting point for safaris beyond the capital, trained and knowledgeable staff at The Norfolk can advise and arrange a wealth and variety of sightseeing trips and safaris. 

The markets of Nairobi are a haven for those wishing to barter for locally produced crafts and goods.

Nairobi National Park is a 44-square mile game reserve teeming with wildlife, situated on the outskits of the city and makes a perfect outing from the Norfolk Hotel.
Take the time to relax and enjoy The Norfolk's impressive offering of leisure facilities and activities including:
  • Swimming pool
  • Health Club with fully equipped gym, saunas, steam rooms, aerobics classes and massage.
