We were here on safari for two nights. This is a lovely lodge, beautiful grounds and pool. We enjoyed the pre-inner shows presented by the native tribes, bright colors, and song and dance. The food and service was terrific. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. A very nice stay!

Excellent is a word that falls short of my experience and stay at Lion Hill. The Accommodation, Staff and food was nothing less than brilliant. This is a lodge that I would recommend to anyone! The grounds are very well kept with a jogging track for those who wish to keep fit.

It is worth noting that Kenyan game lodges are very different to their South African counterparts. However we enjoyed our quick one night stay very much so. The cottages were clean and airy with little thoughtful things like hot water bottles provided for night time. The food was good, with a good selection, particularly dinner. Pool area very nice however...

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
