Just an over night stop here and as it was cold, overcast and rained on the game drive in the evening perhaps that has coloured my views on the hotel. The lake view would have been there if they had removed the trees as we were on the bottom terrace of lodges. The room itself was a bit cramped but... More

Great hotel, very green in the jungle, amazing food like all Sarova hotels, but with an incredible view over Lake Nakuru, very nice service. Some many flamingos and rhinos!

The lodge provides quite a good stay but the mosquitoes are ridiculous, they may not be the malaria carrying kind but they are annoying nonetheless. The rooms are spacious with extra amenties such as hairdryer and power outlets. But the mosquito nets have a gap at the top between the ceiling which is a tad counter productive. The buffet food...

We have stayed at the Sarova Lion Hill Lodge the past two years and have loved every minute of it, except for the hordes of mosquitos this year, but that wasn't their fault. It has nice individual duplex type cabins with great furnishings and a nice bath. They come in during dinner and pull your mosquito netting around the bed.... More

You don't have a lot of lodging choices if you stay at Lake Nakuru, and certainly the Sarova Lion Hill Lodge is not a bad place to stay. This was my second time there and I wouldn't be unhappy to stay there again. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and the food is good. The drawbacks are twofold. First,... More

Sarova Lion Hill is apparently the best lodge at Nakuru (which is what our agent reassured us), but it felt extremely dated to me. Everything, from the room, to the restaurant, is dark and depressing. Rooms- cramped and dingy. We were 3 of us, and they gave us a room with literally no place to move in. They have mosquito...

Nakuru was my first stop when i had been to Kenya this time around and as usual selected the Sarova Lion hill lodge of all the hotels in the place. Nakuru itself is a very scenic place which is actually a national park surrouding a soda lake. the lake is famous as lot of flamingoes frequent the place because of... More

Sarova Lion Hill was very beautiful with wonderful views of Lake Nakuru. Our room was very nice, small but very clean and comfortable. We even saw a lion when driving up the driveway!!

Having visited many game parks in Kenya, Nakuru is without out doubt the best so far, and in no small part due to the staff and facilities at Sarova Lion Hill Lodge, the staff and management are excellent and the food and facilities very good too.. The park is diverse hills, savanah, marsh lands and the lake itself and the... More
