Wonderful location, although the actual mountain view is not that spectacular. We were not able to afford to stay here, but we did have a drink and dinner. Crazy expensive for house wine and the pour was 'small', $8. You can get the same wine in Kigali for about $4 a full glass. The set menu was $30 a person. the food was sparse, average and disappointing.
i would stay somewhere else, eat somewhere else and just go and have a walk around and a sit by the very lovely infinity pool.
no problem with the staff, they were very friendly and accomodating
