I recommend the Merica hotel in the heart of the Nakuru town, it is in a central place and is accessible. Alternatively, Hotel Kunste would do. It is having a good view of the Lake Nakuru National park.
Hotel Waterbuck Nakuru

(west Rd;s/d/tw incl breakfast Ksh 2000/2500/2000; . Beneath the boring exterior lurk large kitschy African themed doubles. Although a bit brash, they are, in fact, comfortable and more memorable than any other room in town. The singles and twins are small, boring and lack balconies. Kindergarten colors surround the courtyard and swimming pool. Non- guests can take a dip for Ksh 100.

Midland Hotel-Nakuru

(Geoffrey Kamau Rd;s/d incl breakfast from Ksh 2300/3700)This popular place has a range of rooms ( most with carpets) with varying levels of comfort. A third wing has recently been added; the names ‘old wing’ and ‘new wing’ have already been taken. We are wondering what they will call it.

Yours Sincerely,


i would like to recommed summit hotel, its also accesible and away from the noise. it also caters for the other things like discos , has a swimming pool etc.
where is the summit
I recommend midland hotel. Located at the heart of Nakuru town,and along a major highway,this is an ideal travellers' hotel. The general atmosphere is that of trianquility. With secure parking, wonderful food, friendly staff and nice rooms, you'll be forgiven to think you're home, and surprised you've saved some money.
Though a bit out of town, Mbweha Camp is absolutely the place you are looking for. Its only 27 km out of town on Elementaita Rd. Tel: 050 50739 or Call Manager 0722 300404 for direction. If you gave me your email address I would send you the a direction map. Thank you.
I would suggest Lake Nakuru Lodge it is inside the park not far away from the gate there are very good sites, luxurious rooms and a swimming pool as well, private enough for honey moons and wedding with a different taste i. e in the wild. The price is not exorbitant
Hey Lake Nakuru is the best place to be nice resorts are available with minimum interference. just contact us at fill in the inquiry then we will assist you as soon as possible. thank you.
samit resort
Try a Hotel by the name Chester Hotel.
They are one km away from the city along Kariba road.
Gilani's Restuarant (Indian Curry) above Gilani's Supermarket
Do you have any other restaurants
I would suggest Eldorado hotel on Nakuru Nairobi highway...
mailisaba camp:its at the edge of menegai crater.the best camp for privacy and good view of the crater
Sumit resort hotel on the edge of lake nakuru national park It is about three kilomtres from the centre of nakuru town.The resort affords a very good view of the flamingoes in lake nakuru, and other wildlife that grace right upto the hotel fence,the fence is solar powered hence safe for the clients.The other alternative to go to lion hill in lake nakuru national park
Sarova Lion Hill lodge, would be the perfect place fro you and your family to visit.
It has a beautiful view of Lake Nakuru, It also has thumbs up services and would ensure your privacy at all costs. Accommodation too is awesome as you enjoy spacious room, excellent room service and very accessible.
For more info on this, please contact me on +254724366993
I recommend hotel KUNSTE which is located by the Nairobi - Nakuru highway thus making it very accessible, keeping in mind what you consider most is accessibility you will have HAVEN on that EVENING.
Tana hotel would be lovely
If it is just for dinner without accommodation, then I would recommend a town hotel like Merica or Midland hotels. If with accommodation, then Sarova Lion Hill will be the ultimate choice for a more of privacy and comfort.
Hotel Waterbuck Nakuru
this is just but a customer experience?
