Everything about this hotel is excellent! The price, cleanliness, food, internet connection, you name it! Book early though, the place is getting very popular and I guess it's because of the excellent service and the clean rooms.

Very very clean. Possibly the cleanest we've come across in our trip. Trying to travel around kenya on a budget is challenging, cause you know, this country thinks that every white person is a billionaire, but there are decent places like this around. Fairly new, a bit noisy. Sounds from the bar can be heard in the rooms till late... More

Wow, when I was told over the phone that the price for a double room would be 2,000 Ksh, I didn't believe it. My friend (who is from Kenya) didn't believe it either, or she said that if it was the price, it was no place we would want to stay. However, 2,000 for a double was the price, and... More

We were looking for something reasonable near Nakuru Park, and found the recomondation here on Tripadvisor. When I told my local freind in Nairobi about it she stated her fear that at this price (3900 KSH = 48$ for 2 single rooms and one double for one night, no breakfast) it might not be good enough for us. The hotel... More

Blue Bay is one clean and quiet place out of the hustle and bustle of Nakuru town. It’s in a secure location right next to the road, if one was to use public means it’s still very convenient. The rooms are huge and spacious, with floor rugs/carpets at almost every edge of the bed which helps instead of stepping on... More

I am falling short of words to describe this experience. Seated at my dining table, lake Nakuru graces my eyes, fantastic. The cool wind breeze blows away my thoughts for a moment. Its a feeling so pleasurable. I would best describe it as a comfort zone.The landscape beyond reminds me of the famous rift valley which i used to study... More

5 of us stayed for just one night while travelling through Nakuru. My son had stayed here a few months back and recommended it as a good budget venue. A double room was 1500 Kenyan Shillings (about £10.50) which, for what you get, is fantastic. The hotel is very clean (possibly because it is still fairly new). The bed was... More
