A perfect ending to a medical clinic trip in Nakuru/Kaptembwo. We were met with warm towels that refreshed us and a delicious drink. Our cabin was absolutely beautiful and had comfortable beds and clean restrooms. The porch was a place to relax with a wonderful view of the grounds. The meals were absolutely tasty with so many different choices. They... More

Awesome place! Room was clean and very comfortable. We stayed here for three nights on our safari tour of Kenya. Staff was extrememly accommodating and friendly. The NP is amazing. It is a relatively small park, but that allows you to see a large variety of the wildlife without spending the whole day in a van looking for something. We... More

I recently took a small group to Tanzania and Kenya and Lion Hill was one of the lodges we overnighted at. I did find it a long drive for just one night. Also, when were there this past March, the drought was severe and the animals looked in terrible health. I actually found it heartbreaking to see. A rhino was... More

This place just didn’t work for me. The location, within Nakuru NP, is first-rate. The layout is good. The grounds are pretty. The rooms are very spacious with comfortable beds. Perversely, however, there’s no view, even though the site is elevated and Lake Nakuru is a short distance away. I felt I was being teased, with occasional, fleeting, water glimpses... More

Stayed here as part of our honeymoon and were thoroughly impressed when we arrived and found we had been upgraded to a suite!! The hotel staff provided wine and a lovely letter to us wishing us well for our honeymoon. The room was fantastic - a super king bed, living room, and massive bathroom. Hotel was comfortable and thoroughly enjoyable.... More

1. No one told us that we are to pay park fees on arrival though we had paid all the amounts for our full-board accommodation and conferencing. We were kept at the date for an hour waiting for a response for the gate, forcing us to raise over Ksh 10,000 to facilitate our entry. 2. On arrival at the hotel,... More

Rooms good with mosquito nets although not needed during our visit. Room smelt of drains after heavy rain. Grounds well kept. (although bird identification board is wrong). Staff friendly. Restaurant : barely organised chaos: too many people, staff barely coping/forgetting drinks orders. Food satisfactory-good. Lots of choice. Not a place to go for peace and tranquility!
