The Old house is a 3 bedroomed cottage and each room is ensuite and can be occupied individually or the house can be taken as a single unit. It has a sitting room with a fire place and a veranda overlooking the Castle, a parking and private garden, television with DSTV, telephone, complimentary tea/coffee and a mini bar. It comfortably accommodates 6 people sharing.

Tafaria Castle is a 29-room lodge built on a hill overlooking the Aberdare Range, Laikipia Plains and Mount Kenya, halfway between Nyeri and Nyahururu in Kenya.

Completed in 2012, Tafaria has been conceived to engender two states of mind, that of adventure stimulated by the remote location and medieval architectural style that runs from the castle to the similarly themed cottages, and relaxation facilitated by the high altitude, secluded spot and gentle, manicured grounds.

The castle houses the lord’s room which is ideal for honeymooners or those looking for extra luxury. It overlooks the castle’s four residential quarters: the Damsels’ Quarters are optimally sized, the Knights’ Quarters are perfect if you would like that extra space or the Vikings’ Quarters if you fancy being tented.

If you have a family or prefer even more space, the Lost Knights’ Quarters or the old house which is a three-bedroom cottage will provide you with that spacious accommodation.

Tafaria Castle & Country Lodge has one restaurant, one indoor bar, an outdoor snack bar and one outdoor grill bar.

We liked it, really nice place. We enjoyed our stay, the food was delicious and fresh. Though they did not deliver drinking water to our rooms everyday. We look forward to coming back with a group really soon.

We had a good stay and my wife enjoyed her birthday. The only issue we had is the accuracy of the information given here and what we received on arrival. This needs to be looked into to avoid confusions

It was amazing. We had a great time and everything went smoothly. The only down side was the movie theatre. I was really looking forward to it but they don't have any recent movies and as it is based on request we ended up watching movies we already watched years before.

Most amazing place i have ever been to with beautifully landscaped gardens and lawns & stylish glamour. By uniting a love of nature, the outdoors, and casual living with a profound sense of glamour and fantasy, this establishment is one of the finest hotels ever created that gives the feeling of a land far far away, combining great vision, great skill, and great love. The service was excellent with very polite staff who went above and beyond taking us through the history of the place & advice on the activities we should engage in to make our stay more fun & make use of all available resources. The scenery from my suite was awesome!!!! at sunrise i got an amazing view of Mt. Kenya peaks from the comfort of my room. Saying i loved it doesn't even come close to the true Tafaria Experience.

I really liked Tafaria Castle. They've had a bit of fun with the theme and pulled it off well. The place seemed attract families taking a weekend getaway from the city and for that it's very well equipped with horse riding, hiking, four-wheelers, cinema, reading room, fishing, big lawns, evening fire pit and a big bar. The owner clearly has a vision! We stayed for a couple of nights and were very comfortable in the tented Viking rooms. It was actually pretty luxurious with everything you'd expect from a modern city hotel room, only with more charm. We enjoyed our meals and the staff were a good bunch. We visited the nearby falls and the Aberdare mountain range (we had our own 4x4). The location is good if you're looking to visit the northern end of the Aberdares. We did, and we found the extremely rare Bongo antelope http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bongo_(antelope). If you're looking for a fun weekend away, this place is a great option!
