The room was in the last block so it was very quiet and serene. The front office, restaurant staff and room steward were extremely friendly and were always ready to help. They went the extra mile to make my stay very comfortable.

Nice rooms, far from the noise, good meeting facilities. This is a good place for company retreats etc. The breakfast buffet is ok, lunch and dinner buffets are however rather poor. Excellent service, very friendly staff. For holidays, I would definitely go elsewhere on Lake Naivasha.

I went down each morning and evening, and enjoyed the wildlife and birdlife by the water. You can also walk around the grounds, which were
