Not our best experience. The food was good but Breakfast closed early due to renovations. Not well kept up and we had difficulty with getting hot water. A reasonable low budget option. Lots of road noise if you are near the intersection.

Thanks everyone I enjoyed my stay. It was worth every coin. Staff at the restaurant are great. Especially one called Joseph. I would recommend everyone visiting Nakuru to stay here. It's also very close to Lake Nakuru Park

We were with this hotel for just a night. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Food was good. Peaceful and good sleep. We had hot water when needed. They provide you with mineral water bottle, that really helps in Africa.
