I stayed at Merica Hotel for 3 nights while attending a workshop. In the restaurant, buffet service is available for all meals. There is a pool and a small gym. Staff are courteous and helpful. The room was large and the bed had a mosquito net (great malaria prevention). The conference center is on the 1st floor and has everything... More

Good hotel for the location. Make sure that you get a room on the pool side, not the street side due the club across the street side. Most tourists on safari lodge here. Open air market across the street and National park 5 mins away. I travel to Nakuru 1-2 times per year. ?This is where I usually stay

I don't understand how anyone could rate this hotel as anything but rundown and in desperate need of renovation. Toilet didn't flush but told this was normal, road noise excessive, worn carpets, pillows falling apart........no idea about food....chef just made what he wanted not what was ordered.......very disappointing. In room safe broken so were given master key to our room... More

The rooms are very spacious. the table are very small to work on. They have old towels for the stature of such a hotel. The service is very good and the food has a variety on offer. A great place to be.

Customer service was very good. Rooms clean and spacious. Though Merica need to buy new towels and renovate the washrooms. The toilets are a bit stained but functional. Of-course a better option than other hotels in Nakuru town.

This is a perfectly good hotel. Much better than all other options in Nakuru. It is central, has good security, a decent bar with reasonable prices, a nice pool area and a good selection of food which they serve all day and most of the night. The rooms are probably 3 star by European standards but perfectly acceptable and like... More

The service is excellent, the staff are very friendly, the rooms are large and spacious but the noise from surrounding clubs are deafening. You will not be able to sleep/rest before 0100 in the morning. If you are on holiday, then visit this hotel. The food menu is limited and they do not cater for vegans

I never enjoyed my stay. The toilet and showers are stained, windows aren't sound proof so you can hear cars passing at night and the kitchen smoke extractor and finally the wall to wall carpet isn't a good idea since they haven't been able to keep from smelling. That was my 1st and last visit.

This hotel is situated in the midst of nakuru town thus convenient. The food was great on certain days others flat. Customer service has its days. Theres nothing much to say. But a few improvements here and there.
