This was my 3rd trip to Sarova Lion Hill Lodge at Lake Nakuru. Each time I go they've made new improvements to the property. This time it was a new restaurant and buffet style serving areas. Food, service and lodging were all great. We stayed in the Faru suite which had a fireplace, we really enjoyed it. Lake Nakuru is... More

The lodges on the side of the hill were set up with 2 rooms per lodge. Whilst they were not luxurious they were more than comfortable and whilst the rooms were only basic, the restaurant, bar area and pool area more than made up for it. We shared a bottle of wine and more than enjoyed the ambience of our... More

We had come to find flamingos, but the rain put paid to that – Lake Nakuru was too deep and the flamingos had found a more conducive home. However, the Lion Hill Lodge did prove to be comfortable – small bungalows set up on the hillside commanding a view over the lake and offering relatively spacious accommodation. There was a... More

This hotel was of very poor quality. The rooms were very small and not that clean, and the showers were cold in my room so I had to use the one in my parents room. I even informed the staff and they said they would send someone to fix it, but no one ever came. The food was quite good,... More

I really liked this place. The grounds are beautiful! The room was very nice, although the bathroom was not very nice and the shower was terrible. The food was excellent. My daugher had a massage that was VERY reasonable. The game drive here is limited, but we had a fantastic run-in with a white rhino. One of the highlights of... More

The property itself is very good...rooms are basic but functional. My major gripe although is the sheer distance between the receptions and some of our rooms, we were unfortunate enough to be in Nakuru during heavy rain...so rushing back to the room after every meal although certainly conducive for the digestion, was starting the wear quite "thin". The food is... More

The Sarova at Lake Nakuru turned out to be very good. Set maybe 6 kms from the entry gate, it has excellent restaurants, a wonderful bar and is quite centrally located to drive to the various areas within the park. The only problem was that the rooms are quite a walk (and one has to climb quite a few steps)... More

The hotel was quite safty and peaceful with great hospitality of staffs, only the point thy need to consider is improving the quality of restaurant menue, to stay two days were enough to enjoy the food from their restaurant because the contents and way of presentation were almost same during my stay. Besides the food, the environment and service of... More
