The hotel is good, free Internet, and conveniently placed. The aren't that good. But the rest of the hotel is okay. The food is delicious, the breakfast is the best. The service was really good. People there were kind, the gift shop was small but it had a lot of stuff.

This is much more a hotel than a game lodge, but very nice nonetheless. The welcome was very friendly - especially from Betty who greeted us like old friends. The food was excellent (hot & cold buffet style, very varied and as much as you want) and the free traditional dancing show was wonderful. The room was fairly basic (&... More

This is my second time staying at Lion Hill. The location is beautiful. Even though the park has seen a lot of flooding since my last visit in 2010, the lodge remains accessible and the wildlife in the immediate area is very good.

This hotel is probably the most modern/westernized game lodge of all the game lodges I've stayed in, in Kenya and Tanzania. There is free WiFi in every room and the hotel has a spa. The grounds are beautiful with lots of pretty birds flying around. Even in the low season the hotel was crowded. The park has a diversity of... More

Located on top of a hill and we did see a lion five minutes from the lodge. On the whole a good experience with no complaints. We enjoyed the Masai performance before dinner. The service was very good and the food fairly good. Would definitely recommend the lodge as the place to stay at Nakuru.

A great weekend get away from Nairobi. Very good service and fairly decent if inconsistent food. The rooms were not bad but far from great. We spotted two lions five minutes from the lodge that's where the name Lion Hill comes from I guess? We also spotted a black rhino though the flamingos were a bit sparse when we went.

First, I would suggest , discounting a couple of the outlier reviews where they blame the hotel for things that are completely out of their control, weather, lake flooding, vehicle traffic in the park. That is beyond the control of the hotel afterall. We stayed here during the low season and it was great. Not many guests. The rooms are... More

We had a great weekend away—felt like we had been away much longer as we had a very good two day/one night stay at the Sarova.
