We were glad to choose Jacaranda Hotels-Lake Elementaita Lodge for Our Christmas Holidays. The rooms are nice and comfortable, the staff were very polite and courteous especially Timothy and Mr Bean who went out of his way to make sure the kids were entertained

It would have been 5 stars if the place was better looked after. Food is average. The best most friendly staff you can find anywhere. Very cosy comfortable rooms. Ill back definitely because of the environment, serenity and overall relaxing experience. There is a swimming pool too with deck chairs. No wifi except in the lounge dining areas.

This is a beautiful place; the accommodation is set in its own gardens and there is a view of the lake. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff are very kind and welcoming.

We spent a night at the hotel with friends and family. The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They accommodated some of our 'out of menu' meal requests. The rates were quite pocket friendly. The hotel is less than 1 km from main highway to Nairobi/Nakuru highway.
