About Outspan Hotel
Outspan Hotel is located in Nyeri Town, right in the heart of Kenya’s tea and coffee growing highlands. It is the nearest hotel to the spectacular Karuru Falls and is an Eden of vibrant gardens and verdant green lawns, where peacocks add to the charming ambiance as they roam at will.
The hotel was built in 1926 and was once home to Lord and Lady Baden Powell, founders of the Scout and Girl Guide movements. Their cottage, Paxtu is now a museum that is open to our visitors and to scouts and guides from all over the world.
Outspan offers three Cottages, 14 Deluxe Rooms and 28 Standard Rooms. Most of the rooms have fireplaces and garden access. It is also an idyllic corporate retreat with fully equipped conference rooms, computer and Internet access as well as other business facilities. Meals are served in the dining room or on a wide veranda. On clear days, the veranda is the perfect spot to catch a glimpse of snow-capped Mt Kenya, the second-highest mountain in Africa.
Guests may swim in the hotels pool or play a game of tennis or squash on the courts. Golfers will particularly enjoy playing the game at the neighbouring Nyeri Club because at this altitude, the ball goes much further than usual. To keep you entertained, every weekend the pub has special themed nights with live shows, from cabaret, karaoke, cultural and comedy nights. Sports fans can watch their favourite match on the large plasma screen TV.
