Very Good8.0
Lovely lodge in a really good national park
Very warm and welcoming staff. Very decent food (we were on full board), a lovely setting. Firepit at night was lovely. Pool was good though a bit chilly due to the altitude / time of year (start of rains) Lake Nakuru National Park greatly exceeded our expectations. We saw a lot of game and birds (especially on the edge of the lake to the left of the lodge - much less if you go right out of the lodge) We saw lots of zebra and buffalo, water buck, white rhinos (many) black rhino, Male Lions, crested cranes, dik dik, tortoises, jackals, eland, impala, thomson's gazelle, giraffe (Rothschilds) and bee eaters, lilac breasted rollers and many other birds. There are a small number of Flamingos left (a few thousand) but most have moved on to other rift valley lakes,

Safari at Nakuru Lake National Park
We spent 2 nights at this lodge within the Nakuru Lake National Park. We were delighted by the service, the great food, the lush environment of the lodge and of course the proximity to the parks and animals. The only minor point is that we found this lodge a little bit pricey compared to other comparable lodges situated in other parks (like Amboseli). But in any case we keep a very good souvenir of our stay there.

Lion Hill Lodge was amazing. We had a group of 10 in our party. we were only there for one night and are already planning another say there possibly next year for a few nights. This hotel is wonderful! The staff are so friendly and accommodating! The food - Amazing! One of the best places I've stayed while in Kenya.

Fantastic lodge at Lake Nakuru
Of the 4 properties we stayed out during our visit to Kenya, this one was by far the best! Excellent food, service, and extremely friendly staff. The grounds are beautiful, the pool area is large and clean. Would highly recommend this facility to anyone.
