We stayed one night at the Hotel Waterbuck on a post-project safari. The rooms were small and the bathrooms had a window that opened into the hall, so from the hallway you could hear conversations in the rooms. The rooms themselves were quiet. The food was delicious, but we were advised not to eat anything fresh. The lobby and eating...

We spent a night at the Waterbuck and were very impressed with many aspects of our stay. The front office staff were pleasant, knowledgeable and check in was a breeze. The coffee shop and pool area are excellent, clean and the wait staff were very good. We got a room facing the back and it was spacious, clean and quiet....

Hotel Waterbuck is centrally located in Nakuru, which is a bug plus especially for a business traveller. The hotel decoration is thoughtful and the outside dining area seems to be new/renovated at least the time I stayed there. The bar has very nice ambience and soft music. The only let down of this hotel is poor service and lack of...

We booked Hotel Waterbuck for a five-day workshop and ended up needing to extend two more days. They were very accommodating. We had excellent meeting facilities, the teas and meals exceeded expectations. The staff was very customer oriented and made sure our entire 7-day experience was outstanding. The hotel has been updated and has a fun, jazzy look with comfortable...

The food is great, the chef is really good at what he does. The biggest issue is in the ladies washrooms that we have been using...

I stayed in this hotel for 10 nights in July. Yes, that’s right....10 nights. As a well seasoned traveller, (check my other reviews) if I’d not been happy with any aspect of it you can rest assured I wouldn’t have stayed there for that amount of time when there were other options available. To answer some of the criticisms other...

The security staff is great here and the breakfast is fine, but that is where the positives end. You might as well sleep on the floor - the bed is so hard. No mosquito nets so we were covered with bites. Front desk staff couldn't care less. Save your money and visit Eagle Palace Hotel not too far away. It's...
