Older rooms but very comfy and good hot showers. Resturant food was very good. So was the service. Nice ground with pool for younger families. Lots of young families with children visiting on weekends.

I live in Nairobi and this place was ideal for a weekend getaway. The drive down was very scenic. The resort is just by the lake and since it was during the long rains the vegetation was lush and green. Very beautiful. There was wildlife walking arount the open lawn which made the views more magical. The room I got... More

This place was good 20 years ago. Till this time no renovation was done. Old rust bath, unpaited celling, holes in walls. Place going down and down. There are lot of nice places in that area. For lunch you are waiting over an hour.

A budget hotel, good for when you are transiting or for a day. Limited and pricey menu social staffs though unattentive, was in the bar for an hour alone no one to refill the drinks, had to go looking for staff to settle my bill. The so called executive rooms is a disaster... Torned mosquito net, dim lit, queky beds.... More

Whatever determines the number of stars awarded to a hotel, my opinion is that this hotel is at best not more than a two stars hotel. Reasons are: (1) their tented rooms have seen their better days whereas appropriate maintenance has not been forthcoming over the years. Rooms, especially the so-called luxury tented rooms, are in pathetic conditions and are... More

If you are looking for a short term place to stay on a budget, this place would suffice. I stayed in the tents. No hot water and the lights kept blowing out. Food was quite pricey but great! It also gets noisy at night due to music from nearby bars.

The experience there was too short for the opportunities there. Is a special resort, options to see the island which is near with organised trips with both to see the hypo's and the great constrictor snakes. Great food,friendly prompt staff

We had a great weekend at Lake Naivasha Resort. We stayed in a room rather than one of the "tents". The room was comfortable and clean, though rather "tired" - but at the price it was excellent value for that location. The beautiful Resort grounds, the excellent location on the lake, the helpful and friendly staff and the exciting things... More

The hotel has spacious rooms with round the clock attendance but what make it tick is the under tree tented rooms.they have a waooh factor. For families,the vast space allows for bike rides and outdoor games.
