Like others going to Kenya we definetly didnt want to miss out on the famed pink flamingos or the rhinos of Lake Nakuru and therefore spent one night in Lake Nakuru and we were not disappointed. We arrived just before lunch, check in was quick and the first thing that hit us was the spectacular buffet spread, and this continued for dinner and breakfast, the meals were suited to appeal to every palate. Great service aswell. The rooms were very decent, bathrooms were modern and clean but slightly tiny. I had hurt my foot and got an EXCELLENT massage and some work done on my foot down at the spa. The hotel had also arrange for a pre dinner dance / cultural show with audience participation. A very nice lively atmosphere, the place also has a small gift shop but a bit overly priced as most inhouse gifts shops in africa tend to be.
The main sights and the lake itself is not very far from the hotel and you can start seeing animals within 5 minutes from leaving the hotel. Probably one of the top rated places in Nakuru and it should be.
