My partner and I stayed here for one night and loved it! As we were running late for lunch on our arrival, the hotel ensured that we were fed with a wonderful selection of buffet style food (and the best brownie I have ever tasted!) We went on a Game Drive as we had access to a four wheel drive... More

The service standards at this hotel receive absolutely top marks! From arrival at the gate to large genuine welcoming smiles from the security staff, to finding that the reception staff were already waiting and prepared to receive us by name. Thereafter it seemed like all the staff knew us, were happy to welcome us and made us feel like royalty.... More

The hotel is situated inside the park and has a beautiful surrounding. The staff is very polite and courteous. The food at the hotel is also good with lots of options. The rooms are clean and have a great view. However the only problem is with the size of the rooms (they are very small).

We got to the Sarova Lion Hill after being in some other good lodges in Kenya but Sarova managed to surpass them all and be our top unanimous family choice. Everything about this place is perfectly set and well thought of. The service was absolutely spectacular starting from the non-pushy bellboys (very rare in Kenya) to the service in the... More

This is the only lodge inside Lake Nakuru national Park with a amazing view of the lake and the pink Flamingos Neat and clean rooms. Excellent food options and close proximity to wildlife. If you are lucky you can even spot a lion sitting outside your lodge main gate.

I've been to quite a few nice hotels (Kempinski, Sheraton, Radisson..) and I have to say that I was impressed by the value of Sarova Nakuru. I've not had their service bested; Second best experience was being the 3rd checkin in a new Sheraton. Late 2015, I was looking for a quiet cheap getaway to celebrate my son's birthday. I... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated at the heart of the Rift Valley, the Lake Nakuru national park is home to one of the most amazing ornithological spectacles in the world - the flight of the flamingos! Aside from the flamingos, the park has over 450 species of birds - a heaven for any avid bird watchers. The park is also a sanctuary to the highly-endangered black Rhino and abounds with other game such as buffalos, lions and the elusive leopard. Just two hour's drive from Nairobi; Sarova Lion Hill is one of only two lodges situated within the premises of the park. Each of the 67 recently refurbished chalets are equipped with modern conveniences and have an astounding view of the pink rimmed lake and the silhouetted hills beyond. Guests can enjoy country-style dining at the flamingo restaurant or if you like, the chef can set up something special under one of the beautiful acacia trees where one can enjoy lunch with an unobstructed view of the lake. The rift valley bar is just the right spot for that magical sundowner. Cultural dancers delight visitors with their enchanting dancing every night. An inviting swimming pool & sauna facilities are available. Guests can also enjoy outdoor massage treatments with the calming sounds of chirping birds. Outside catering facilities complement the "meals served in the bush", provided as premium add-ons, including cocktails at Baboon Cliff. The Lodge also offers conferencing facilities. The Sarova Lion Hill Game Lodge is one of the most sought after Rift Valley Lodges in Kenya, best known for offering finest quality services. A fabulous outdoor swimming pool to a business conference room, the hotel has almost everything that's required to make your stay a memorable one. ... more   less
