We have stayed regularly at Lion Hill Lodge over the past 6 years, which shows how much we love it and how well we rate it! This year we actually had 2 seperate stays, one in one of the lower level bungalows and one in the suite. Both were equally good. The staff are so friendly, welcoming and caring, the... More

Stayed at Sarova Lion Hill Lodge for the first time June 8th - 9th 2011. The rooms were great. Very clean, good sized hot showers and comfortable beds. The room was a little on the small side but adequate for 2 people. The amenities were awesome! Really nice pool and I definitely recommend the massage service. Fairly priced for Kenya... More

We stayed at the Sarova Lion Hill lodge for 1 Night. The experience was amazing. Good food, especially for the Vegetarians...Good variety...In the night they had a live masai dance and song program.....which was really nice....also while we were dining there was a person who was playing the guitar and made the atmosphere lively and romantic...The only draw back is...

I stayed 2 nights at Sarova Lion Hill lodge in Lake Nakuru. supposedly and sadly the best in the Park. The Park and Lake Nakuru are beautiful, especially the flamingos casting a pink reflection on the lake. There was not much of a view from the cabin, the cabin was a bit dark, beds not that comfy but adequate... as... More

We were booked here through HTT Global Holidays and Adventures. As usual for the3m they selected a top flight place for us to stay. The hotel has a wonderful bar, and an excellent restaurant. a wandering guitar playing singer added to the fun. The staff was kind and efficient. The WIFI was expensive and not so good is my only...

Our family of six stayed here recently and like every aspect of the place. I agree with some oth reviewers about the great food:it is better than at other safari lodges where we have stayed in Kenya and Tanzania. The food also is presented well and appears to be cared for to avoid health problems. A big plus for me... More

Clean and comfortable rooms - no complaints there at all. Probably the best buffet food we had on our Kenyan safari, staying at Sarova and Serena Hotels. Close to the park. There was a black rhino about 500m into our game drive. Lots of beautiful birds on the grounds, too.

Close proximity to the main park entrance; elevated property with some obstructed views of the lake; fenced-in location with security gate; eclectic buffet selection for all meals (though my father and I both got food poisoning from unwashed native vegetables); clean pool; large conference rooms; ethnically diverse patrons; as good as it's going to get inside a Kenya national park;...
