The rooms have no windows or aircon system stuffing and no hot water no internet and nonchalant staff! The place has no back up generator and no phone in room to call reception either. Never saw or met a single manger and no bothered with you!

I recently had the privilege to stay at the Great Rift Valley Lodge & Golf Resort and what a treat it was! The road from the main Nairobi-Nakuru highway was rather harrowing in sections- although it was being graded at the time- hope they go the whole hog and pave it as well!- but that was soon forgotten when we...

The road to the resort is really bumpy but since we were prepared for it from the trip advisor reviews we took it in our stride. The road is however under construction and I presume in a few months time it will be a great ride. On arrival the team was expecting us and we were quickly ushered to our... More

We stayed at the Great Rift Valley Lodge for two nights in May, 2015 to attend the wedding of a close friend. The hotel is absolutely beautiful. Our rooms overlooked the Great Rift Valley; the view was breathtaking. This is a top notch hotel and the service was excellent. We enjoyed the restaurants, the grounds, the talks by the hotels...

I attended an international conference in Naivasha, Kenya in June 2015 and we were hosted by Great Rift Valley Lodge and Golf Resort. Two words: AAAAAA-MAZING!!!! staff, food, and location!!!!! The location was the perfect place in everyday and one morning I got up at 5 am to take a boat ride on Lake Naivasha that was simply stunning. William... More

Rooms are shabby, bathrooms are just passable. No phone to communicate with the reception. Our kettle didn't work and wasn't changed despite complaining. We had a dirty spoon in our room. Apart from the dismal room, service was good, food was also good.

This hotel will have to make up its mind whether it will cater to folks who want to getaway or to business conferences/workshops. Its internet sporadic & slow; its a'la carte restaurant horrible in quality yet its buffet for larger groups very good. No direct lines from the room to the reception; although they give you a cell number and... More

The visit in February 2015 was so refreshing and relaxing, having literally drained myself working the whole of 2014. The service was equally good and so is the environment which is generally well taken care of and not tampered with. I specially enjoyed the quite environment, reason I'd prefer to return for some quiet time away from the hustles of... More
