Reading previous reviews it doesn’t seem possible travellers stayed at the same place. Certainly the staff tried hard and were friendly. The food was slightly better than other places we’d been to. The hotel was rustic and would have been acceptable if the fireplaces had...More

The staff here are incredibly attentive and friendly. Can't emphasise this enough, it really made staying here a pleasure. Beautiful setting, comfortable clean rooms, great food buffet style and very accommodating if you're late from your trek! Great place, would come back in a jiffy.

Good food, nice scenery and a well maintained lawn. A short drive from the Volcanoes National Park. The food was good and the staff were friendly. A good place to stay if you want to see the mountain gorillas.

You can rent gaiters for $5 USD and gloves for $5 USD, or bring your own. Leather work gloves are a good protection from the stinging nettles. I was just there a month ago. You will love the experience!
