We were looking for something reasonable near Nakuru Park, and found the recomondation here on Tripadvisor. When I told my local freind in Nairobi about it she stated her fear that at this price (3900 KSH = 48$ for 2 single rooms and one double for one night, no breakfast) it might not be good enough for us. The hotel... More

Blue Bay is one clean and quiet place out of the hustle and bustle of Nakuru town. It’s in a secure location right next to the road, if one was to use public means it’s still very convenient. The rooms are huge and spacious, with floor rugs/carpets at almost every edge of the bed which helps instead of stepping on... More

Its a feeling so pleasurable. I would best describe it as a comfort zone.The landscape beyond reminds me of the famous rift valley which i used to study... More

5 of us stayed for just one night while travelling through Nakuru. My son had stayed here a few months back and recommended it as a good budget venue. A double room was 1500 Kenyan Shillings (about £10.50) which, for what you get, is fantastic. The hotel is very clean (possibly because it is still fairly new). The bed was... More

Value for money in blue bay hotel. Reasonably friendly people clean spacious room with bathroom. And ...warm water. & Safety certified by Protect secures between reception and rooms. No air-conditioning but for 15 euros per night for 2 people is not everything possible. Breakfast at 4 euros per person is very disappointing and is not realistic for what you get.... More
