Naivasha - Another hotel on the opposite side of the railway from the Bell Inn was owned by the parents of R.S. Alexander and in 1923 the waters of the lake rose so high that they washed against the verandah steps; however the lake receded before damage was done. This building was later taken over as a PNEU School run by Mrs Albrechtsen, and finally finished as a school for Indian children.
