The location of this hotel is fantastic. Right in the middle of the park, on the hill with a view on the lake. The room was small but nicely done and comfortable. The highlight was the restaurant area and the quality of the food served. We stayed only a day so we could not try the spa and other services,...

This was the hidden gem of our holiday. We arrived and we were given a suite upon request. The room was nice and spacious, with a separate living area with a real open fire. The room was a little dated but really clean and comfortable. We had the end Faru suite which had great views of the lake and some...

The hotel with a lake view was a good stay but the only flaw was not so clean water supply in taps, the water was soapy and salty. The resort served decent breakfast and a good stay for families and couples and also a bunch of friends.

Lion Hill at lake Nacuru ... excellent accommodations, individual cottages, very well appointed and clean. The buffet style resto offers very good selection and quality. The lake is famous for flamingos however, the lake level has risen causing major flooding of shallow beaches, which drove away the flamingos. We observed a much smaller flamingo and pelican flocs. The staff is...

Nice lodge. Rooms are not fancy but very well equipped. Note that they don't have televisions but there is no time for tv on safari. Buffet was lovely and service good.

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
