The hotel was safe, clean and well organized. I enjoyed the pool and the restaurant as well. Everything was fine. I asked for a additional bedsidelamp and when I got to the room she was there. I needed a hairdryer and could borrow one at the desk.

Received poor reception. Checked in at 11..Waited for almost an hour to get a room..told the rooms weren't ready. The receptionists were also not friendly. Gave the requests for type of room we wanted and they were behaving like we were disturbing them. They need customer service and handling skills.

Three day business meeting, staff were helpful and responsive great team. Meals were good but lack creativity after two days you need a change. Meeting rooms need upgrading to modern level, they are rather dated. Lacks client parking and outdoor environment. The biggest drawback is internet service with limited support.

This hotel offers that classic feel at the heart of Nakuru. Rooms are clean, comfortable but lighting could be better. Delicious, varied buffet style meals and a bar well stocked with a wide selection of drinks.

The rooms here were not good. The mosquito nets were full of holes and were dingy, as were the rooms, The carpet is disgusting and the bathrooms are in serious need of re-finishing. But choices are limited in Nakuru. The hotel itself is decent--restaurant, bar, gym. Just don't plan on spending a lot of time in the room. The internet...

A very nice place to chill in the swimming pool or go to the gym! Elegant ambience and nice. The food is so so, I had some pizzas but as a real Italian I didn't like them. Hope the other dishes are better. Overall a nice place!

After finishing our tour to Masai Mara we were taken to Nakuru. We were told that we will be able to see Flamingos and Rhinoceros, which we are not in Masai. Our stay was at Merica. Wonderful hotel centrally located.

Spacious rooms with lots of redundant space, good view and an ideal location, poor lighting in the rooms and the service could have been better. The desks are quite small hard to get work done on those. There's room for improvement.
