was here for a lunch with family and I must say the service was great, our food was ready in less than 30 minutes and it came in generous portions. I would go bake there as the prices are very fair, location is easy to find and I have to eat their special "kuku" again! Only downside is the ambience... More

Good place for business meetings. Serve good food and staff are courteous. Swimming pool is great and heated, though gets really crowded on weekends. Their rooms are standard. Secure parking space within the hotel and its right in town.

We stayed at the Bontana in July 2014 with 56 in our group. We experienced the fastest and most efficient check-in ever, and found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. We enjoyed a buffet breakfast each morning as well as a buffet dinner each evening that was very hot and tasty. The hotel manager, Chris, and the reception... More

We stayed in the Bontana for two nights as our tour guide, Alice, went to college with the Bontana's manageress, Sarah. When we first checked in, I thought I couldn't possibly stay here as my culture shock kicked in (I am American and my husband is British). We were given a two-room suite which had seen better days - the... More

I stayed in this hotel for three nights in September 2012 while attending a seminar in Nakuru. The room was big but old, and in need of some thorough refurbishment. The staff were not quite welcoming, and the general standard of service was wanting. The bath water was always cold and the toilet didn't flush properly. I ordered pork on... More

This hotel is very outdated. The outside looks okay but the rooms are horrible. We recently stayed there while visiting Nakuru. The food was terrible. It takes along time to get hot water in the shower and sometimes will shut off in the middle of a shower. The tv are the old tube type and you only get two or... More
