We were with this hotel for just a night. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Food was good. Peaceful and good sleep. We had hot water when needed. They provide you with mineral water bottle, that really helps in Africa.

Great place to spend a night. The old wing is the better place to sleep. Quiet and grand. The new wing looks cool but the rooms are a let down. Bathrooms are not befitting the quality of building. The rooms at the new wing have to battle food fumes from the kitchen which rise through the lift shaft and stairs.... More

I loved the friendly staff who made me feel comfortable and at home. The hotel is also clean and pocket friendly for those travelling on a budget. I would recommend it anytime. It's close proximity to the lake nakuru park is also an added advantage.

It was good spot close to nakuru lake after 3 day camping in masai mara. I give bit worse rating as the shower almost gave my friend electric shock. Probably the water heater in shower had loose wires. Food in restaurant wasn't amazing, ok. Rooms were clean, bit noisy.

Read mixed reviews but found that most of them were unfounded. The hotel was clean, the staff friendly and the meals were good. The hotel staff ensured we were comfortable and there was great free wifi.

We were staying as full board and, whilst lunch was excellent (buffet style) dinner and breakfast were a little disappointing with not much choice. No bar, but... More

The hotel has wifi, but this did not seem to work when i was there. The same to their cable which had only two functional channels.The breakfast... More
