The Hotel Waterbuck Nakuru is one of the few middle-range, middle- priced and decent places in Nakuru.
It is actually situated in Nakuru town itself and not on the edge of or in Nakuru Safari Park as is implied by the address given .
Been to Nakuru with my clients, I would like to take this opportunity to give my input on the positiveness of the water buck hotel in Nakuru
For any client doing tented camp or camping Water buck hotel is a good option for that budget range, their reception was excellent , staff welcoming and the rooms looks to have been on renovation and are now representable. Any one for amid range accommodation i would recommend
We enjoyed our stay at the Waterbuck. The reception area is very nice- the rooms are large- the showers are hot- I'd probably stay there again.
Our room was on the noisy-front side- maybe a room towards the back would be quieter- next time that's what I'll ask for. The restaurant has excellent buffet meals- The staff was great!
The decor in the place is over-the-top - but it's fun! I found the rooms somewhat dark and dingy.
The hotel/restaurant is busy as it is used as a base for many of the safari tour companies which visit Nakuru safari park and the other lakes around. There is also a bar/disco downstairs in the hotel which can be a little loud at times.
All said though, I liked this hotel and felt very comfortable here - and enjoyed swimming in the pool, too!
