We were very happy with this location. Food was good, rooms were nice. You can't complain about the view or the ability to see wildlife from our room or dining table. Nice grounds but you could not go too far for fear of wildlife. But it was a perfect location for seeing the park with rhinos and other species in... More

After the unexpected shock of having to pay $880 to gain entry to the national Park where the Lodge is situated for our four night stay things could only get better and they did get better and better.

No flamingoes (except for a handful) left at Lake Nakuru but that shouldn't dampen your experience at this hotel. The food is impeccable (they have a set menu instead of a buffet like other places) and served promptly by the staff. The rooms have a very good view of the valley and the lake. We could hear a lion right... More

The Lodge is just ok.. seems very outdated. It was such a waste. Anyway the food served was good in Lodge however they do not have any Tea/ coffee facility in the rooms and free facility available between 1300- 1500 hrs near the Bar else you pay.

We stayed here as part of a safari so can't comment on price/value. The lodge is more hotel style than safari lodge but the location makes up for it.
