Nakuru is a hidden gem, very beautiful grounds and wonderful staff. I wished we stayed here for two nights, this was a cozy resort with good food and lovely people who work there. They served the best breakfast and buffet lunch in all the hotels I visited around East Africa. Imagine, I tried quail eggs! The room is on top... More

My organization selected this site to hold our annual project planning exercise and it was an idyllic location - lovely flora and fauna - great food, friendly people and simple, but nice rooms. The hotel does not count on people staying for as long as we did so the first thing you notice after 48 hours is that the food... More

We were here for only one night and glad it was jut that. The rooms are extremely small and are in need of major renovations. The bathroom had chipped paint on door and walls, the sink faucet was so loose that when you turned it on the whole faucet moved and our shower had hairs in it. I felt dirty... More

We only stayed here for one night, but enjoyed every minute of it. From the hot towel and juice on arrival to allowing us to pack a breakfast box for our early departure to the Mara, the hotel met every expectation and exceeded some as well. The staff were accommodating, friendly and fun, the food was excellent, and the park... More

Our third visit to the Lion Hill Game Lodge was the best yet. Renovations made in the last several years have improved facilities greatly. As usual the food was magnificent, and plentiful. Restful, relaxing, and beautiful are adjectives that describe both the facilities and the area. Animals cited in the Park included among many others: lions, giraffes, the rare black... More

An excellent location with warm and friendly staff. Game viewing excellent although the high level of the lake and the decreased salinity of the water has meant that most of the flamingos for which this lake was once world-famous have migrated. The food was excellent and the rooms comfortable, clean and fairly close to the restaurant and bar.

What a fantastic place, what a staff! The view, the location, the rooms, the food, the service - superb! The game drive was fantastic, the park is so beautiful. I really do hope I will return one day, and I highly recommend a stay here. I sure will remember this.

Very small rooms, but comfortable nonetheless. Good food, staff helpful and friendly but slightly less attentive than one would have expect. Lovely gardens, greens with lots of birds. Nice ambience in the evening with traditional dances. Nice bar area. Overall a nice experience, but falls far short of a 5 star/similar experience.

Is this Paradise? Bird variety is amazing. Staff is especially helpful and seem to be genuinely happy to be working here. The vegetation is varied and lovely. The half hour Simba Dance entertainment prior to dinner is fun and educational demonstrating song and dance from various places in Kenya. The bedrooms are very nice--ask for one near the central area.... More

We stayed one night at this hotel. Beautiful location, inside the lake nakuru. Service was excellent and great food. Nice room and clean bathroom. However bathroom & room seems little dated, especially the bathroom. Overall it's a very good place to stay..
