The hotel is in a beautiful location with wonderful grounds and views. Rooms and spacious and well-quipped, and service is very good, as is the food. The lack of wifi and mobile signal in some rooms is a minor inconvenience but wifi is available in the common areas such as reception and the bar.

I was there for a two day business meeting. Although it is quite difficult to reach the resort (approx. 15 on a bumpy dirt road), the location of the resort is beautiful. Rooms have a direct view on lake naivasha and the hills. Amazing views. Rooms are large and well maintained. Wonderful bed. Food and bar facilities are great. Pool... More

Travelled to GRVL last week on a business trip (previously gone for weekends and holidays) with my kids. Was a bit anxious initially as I was to chair the 3 day workshop, and wasn't sure how to balance between the office work with taking care of the young ones. Luckily, the Adventurer's club turned out to be great fun for... More

The lodge is about 20Km from the Nairobi-Nakuru highway. Built on a hill overlooking Lake Naivasha and Naivasha town itself it has beautiful views. The setting is natural bush with buildings blending in naturally. The reception, conference and restaurant facilities are clustered in one area and are quite pleasant. There are lodges close by. The rest of the grounds have... More

We went back to the GRVL for the second time this year- it was a great experience. The Adventurer's club was great fun for the kids, and got them off our hands, and the service, good, and facilities were very good. I believe it will remain our preferred driving holiday destination for long weekends.

Had a great time at the lodge. Lots of activities to get done on a Saturday afternoon. The property we stayed in had such wonderful views. Made for some really great conversation and barbecue with friends. We were well taken care of by Orina our chef :-)
