Description

The Space

Rosslyn is one of the oldest character homes in Nairobi and it has been our family home for more than 50 years.

We offer bed and breakfast in a double room, 'Bruce's Room', with its own large verandah with seating for 7 or more.

The shared bathroom (only if we have other guests or family) with original claw foot bath and hand held shower and toilet is down the corridor of the courtyard. Oddly the bathroom has never had a basin but there is one in the bedroom adjacent!

Full English breakfast is a house specialty, fresh fruit, tea or freshly brewed fine Kenya coffee, cooked breakfast with our own free range eggs, toast, marmalades, muesli/oats/porridge are all available. If you have any dietary requirements please let us know at time of booking.

Rosslyn was used as the home and garden of 'The Constant Gardener' 2005 drama thriller film starring Ralph Fiennes and Rachel Weisz who won an Oscar for her

The Neighborhood

Thigiri, or New Muthaiga, was until the 1970s 2 large coffee estates. In the 1970s they were sold for residential 1 acre plots. Our home, Rosslyn, preceeding the development, was built by Andy Anderson, a hunter, in 1919.

Rosslyn is a 5 minute drive to the Village Market, 7 minutes to the United Nations offices at Gigiri (more at peak times), 10 minutes to Westlands, 20 minutes to downtown Nairobi, 45 minutes to JKIA International Airport and Wilson Airport. These last 3 times increase at peak traffic times.

If you need a taxi we can arrange one for you at reasonable rates.
Getting around

You can walk to Village Market (25 minutes), matatus (local public transport vans) are ubiquitous, or have your own vehicle or taxi (can be recommended).
