We arrived here tired and dusty after traveling for 5 hours from the Mara. It was a delight, the staff happy and willing to please. Our room was just perfect and our dinner and breakfast enjoyed. The lake was right there in front of our porch, water birds heard from the moment we arrived. It was a shame that we... More

i loved my stay at Pelican. The Pelican Lodge is a tranquil distinction for, family gate ways suitable for all ages not forgetting clients with special needs. With serene and perfectly manicured grounds which have a back drop of Lake Elementaita is the perfect place for your holiday which turns the whole experience magical.

From the warm welcoming greeting with hot towel and iced tea to the quiet tranquil setting, the Pelican Lodge is a wonderful stay. The rooms are large and clean, the food was good. The central lounge is a perfect place to socialize with our travel mates and meet others. Internet was spotty but that was a small point in what... More

I used the Pelican Lodge for a group stay and can only sing the praises of the hotel and its staff who were unfailingly helpful and cheerful. Otherwise the hotel is comfortable, spotlessly clean and away from noise and bustle - a great place to relax. Definitly worth a stay.

The lodge as a great ambiance, quiet, serene and beautiful. The rooms were very neat and the general service good. The view of the Lake is great, made better by the sheer numbers of birds, the best place to catch Pelicans moving in droves, creating a white swathe of beauty. The food is great, the chef knows his/her stuff :)

The Hotel has very good customer service. The rooms are large and spacious. The food could be improved on by creating variety of menus, include kiddy menus. The Hotel should also think about having kids functions especially during festive seasons. All in all, it was a good experience.
