Excellent location overlooking the lake. We were offered connected rooms towards the end. Rooms were very quiet, but far away from the restaurant. We loved the food; they have good choice and spicy Indian food too! Free Wi-Fi is available in the room.

Unfortunately we were only booked in here for one night as we would have liked to stay longer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was huge and spotlessly clean. The food choice was amazing. The grounds with the large array of birds was beautiful. Incredibly noisy frogs at night!! Can't think of any negatives - a lovely stay.

It was a day's stay at Sarov Lion Hill Game Lodge for us. We arrived there little late, by 3.30 pm, and they took us straightway for a lunch, which was already over by hotel timings. The hotel is very good, the staff are all polite and always happy to help you. The game drive from our hotel was very... More

The Lodge was very comfortable, wonderful clean/spacious room, great food, friendly staff, and nice Masai dance was put on free for those staying at the hotel. The gift store had a variety of gifts at a good price. Overall experience was an A+!

Been on business meeting with colleagues. Couldn't have been a better choice. The hotel is ethnic, nicely situated in the Nakuru National Park. No TV And room telephones. Three game drives in two days - will see a lot of wild buffaloes, zebras, deers, antelopes, impalas, some lions, rhinos, hippopotamus, hyenas, jackals, flamingoes, pelicans and different bird species. Great scenery... More

Great location, nice food, helpful staff. Overall a commendable experience. However, if by any chance, you find yourself traveling to the National Park and the Lodge on your own, without an organized tour and a guide - make sure you inquire with the lodge staff to receive very exact directions, including which gate to the Park to use, what form...

I'm a frequent visitor to Lion Hill in Lake Nakuru National Park, great place with very friendly staff and good food. The game drives are really very good and the park is a great place to go for a couple of days animal and bird watching.

Stayed for 1 night at this beautifully situated Lodge. There are 2 rooms adjoining per cottage and one can hear noises of the other room which is the only negative. The rooms are large, clean with good mosquito nets and no tvs which actually we liked.The staff is good and food is buffet style with plenty of choice. Evening entertainment... More

Well located within the Lake Nakuru NP, the Sarova Lion Hill suffers the consequences of being situated relatively near Nairobi, therefore overrun with day visitors and conference groups. I had emailed the reservation desk and asked for a 'good' room, not knowing what to expect. We were allotted Room #22, next to which is a Suite, the last room. So... More
