We were here for only one night and glad it was jut that. The rooms are extremely small and are in need of major renovations. The bathroom had chipped paint on door and walls, the sink faucet was so loose that when you turned it on the whole faucet moved and our shower had hairs in it. I felt dirty just being in the bathroom. The beds are rock hard and I was unable to get any sleep and my companions experienced the same thing.
They do offer an interactive dance in the bar with a local tribe around a fireplace and a very nice gift shop. Food was mediocre at best and service was worse. I could not get the server to clear my plates. She cleared everyone else's but mine. I even stacked them up and placed them on the corner of the table for pick up. When she dropped our check she still did not pick them up. I gave up.
Game viewing is good around the area. We were able to catch a tree claiming lion perched in a tree, many giraffe and water buffalo. There were not many flamingos on the lake due to the season but that was ok since we got plenty of animal wildlife in.
If I had to do it over I might skip Lion Hill and stay at one of the other fabulous locations we experienced in Kenya.
