Refreshing and serene environment. The Falls are breathtaking. The buildings are beautiful with a colonial era look. The food was good and plenty. Their rooms could use some upgrading, though. The wooden floors are too old and creaky. The double rooms look cramped instead of cozy.

This hotel is old. Very old. But its worth a visit. The staff is friendly the rooms are ok but could use better showers. Those are bad. The toilet in the rooms might be really good for potty training a 2 year old. But not for anyone over 4 feet. Upside of the hotel is that all rooms have a... More

The Thomson Falls Lodge has the best location in the town of Nyahururu. Its nice old style cottages are decorated by beautiful flower gardens. The lodge has a peaceful atmosphere of a well run cosy place. The garden and green lawns are very well maintained. Trees and flowers are of a truly impressive variety, you can spend a long time...

We stayed for 1 night during our 2 weeks trip around Kenya. Restaurant service that hotel provides was the best from all middle range hotels where we stayed. Romantic fireplace, garden and english style of main building make the hotel very charming place.

Took a short trip and this is one of the nicer places in Nyahururu to get some lunch. The food is ok could be better but has a nice chill outdoor place with a view to the falls. Nice place to take a break especially if you have a long drive ahead.

We stayed one night here with my family. We had a spacious triple room with a wood fire. Staff were very friendly and the food was good. It was quite cold even in January so rug up. I would stay here again.

This year they put us in a duplex cottage. The walls were paper thin and every sound audible. We had no fire place and it is cold here at night. They offered one guest a heater that didn't work then a hot water bottle. :) Still the place is charming but next time I'll know to ask for the older... More
