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.

Stayed for six nights at the Merica and enjoyed my time there. As other reviews have pointed out, there are a few issues, which if sorted out would have made my time there even better, but these where not major and could be sorted out with the very helpful staff. One thing they need to work on is the wifi... More

We stayed over for 3 nights as part of a wedding party. The staff are mostly friendly and very helpful and the communal facilities are mostly good. However the rooms are very disappointing. They are shabby, and not much works well. The shower did not work so we called the reception who sent someone up. He said he couldn't fix... More

Terrible terrible terrible customer service at the front desk which is as far as we got. Tired and looking to stopover on a programs trip, three of us: a collegue, the current Miss World Kenya and I stopped over yesterday evening. We inquired about rooms and when we asked to view them first before checking in, the lady at the... More

Merica is a good establishment in the middle of Nakuru town. The proximity to the highway and the famous Nakuru National Park make the location A OK. The hotel itself is well maintained and clean. I was a little surprised that my luggage was checked by hand by a security gate before entering the building but you'd better be safe... More
