Stayed only one night but in a fantastic two bedroom bungalow at the front of the lodge with great views. There was a place for real fire, good for chilly nights. Taps in the room still from colonial times in a perfect working order:)) Good breakfast, overall very good food. There was a nice Masai show in the evening in... More

A well established lodge in what is probably one of Kenya's best parks - Lake Nakuru National Park. This is one my favourite parks in Kenya in that you can virtually be guaranteed of seeing lion, rhino and leopard. THere's no cheetah or elephant at Lake Nakuru given its small size, but its other game more than makes up for... More

We got to introduce our 7 month baby to our favorite Sarova and oh what fun we had. My brother and his family are still talking about it. My 3 year old niece loved Peter & Mushembi, she got a yoghurt treat during dinner and was so happy. Thanks for the private breakfast, the baby was welcomed in style. Looking... More

By the sound of the name you would expect out of this world nature experience. I must say i was very disappointed. First there was no hot water in my stay there which was quite unfortunate. the receptionist said she would fix but that was at checkout! The rooms to me, compared to the other Sarova restaurants i have gone... More

We stayed one night in early November after a week in remote village working. Overall, Sarova Lion Hill is a very nice place by international travel standards. The lodge personnel were friendly and accommodating, the food was very good. Though I did not drink wine it appeared that they had a good sampling of regional wines. The rooms were above... More

Stayed overnight recently. Its like an oasis of calm and beauty in what is already a staggeringly beautiful park. Warm welcome, good bar and a fine selection of food at every meal. Relaxing and just what was required after a long drive and then viewing all the animals - especially good was seeing the Rhino's.

Nice rooms with windows that opened and were screened. Bed also had mosquito netting that you didn't get tangled in during the night, although we had no obvious mosquito issues for the night we were there. Meals were fine, not excellent. Our dinner and breakfast were buffets. The indian vegetarian dishes were my favorite for dinner. And they had a... More

The hotel is located in the middle of the park, overlooking Lake Nakuru. Within the grounds of the hotel we did not see any animals (not counting the numerous lizards on the walls). We were welcomed with a drink upon arrival. The staff was friendly and service was good. Dinner and breakfast was okay. There wasn't a lot of choice,... More

We only stayed 1 night and after departing this Hotel to his sister property in the Mara we could only wish to go back to Sarova Lion Hill.

Good resort comfort sleepings. Staffs are very helpful and always good attitude. A small grey point is drinks are overpriced while water not included in the buffet as well. Also the same grill used for meat at some point is used for pork and being a Muslim is not good. In general great place to relax but very difficult to... More
