A huge place compared to the small scale accommodation we visited before, but still very agreeable. Nice cottage with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It can get quite cold at night, but they do light a fire in the cottage every night. Food ok, not special but that was probably due to the fact we had buffet included.

Stayed here three nights will visiting the mountain gorillas nearby. The lodge was well worn, but still had a charming quality to it. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner were nicely presented and had a wide enough variety that every palate would find something to enjoy. Rooms (cottages) were spacious and clean. As others...

This hotel is a bit tired, especially the bathrooms. The bathroom is huge with a unique shower facility but a very small sink and only two bath towels were provided. Needs an upgrade. The bedroom was also very large with a cute fireplace in which they will gladly light up a roaring fire for you. All dining is buffet and...

Great staff, great food, good location. I would stay here again. Nice lodge with everything you need. They go out of their way to make sure you want for nothing. This is also very close to the gorilla trek station.

We had booked this hotel online and got an outstanding rate but were concerned about the quality as it did have some mixed reviews although most were good and the bad ones seemed a bit nitpicky.

The lodge has a good dinner, breakfast and lunch buffet, though the atmosphere is more of a cafeteria than of a lodge. Staff is overall very friendly, but our room was horribly run-down, though rather large in size. The screens were broken, so beware of sleeping with open windows. In the bathroom the paint was falling off the walls, curtains...

We stayed here in late January. The staff were very welcoming, nothing was too much trouble! They even cleaned our shoes each day after trekking!

What a fantastic place. Each "room" (which is a little house) has a fireplace, fridge, large bath, and sitting area. You'll want that fireplace in the evening.
