This is my third trip to Sipi River Lodge. It is wonderful. The facility and surroundings are beautiful, the beds are comfy, the water is hot and the meals are great. We selected full board (all meals included). There is a fireplace in the dining area (it gets cool enough to wear jeans and a sweater).

I visited Sipi River Lodges for a weekend stay, the quality of the food, hospitality and accommodation were excellent. The lodge I was staying in had a stunning panoramic view of the Falls from the bedroom, lounge area, veranda and bathroom. My purpose for visiting was to fly fish for the rainbow trout in the river above the Falls. My...

Sipi River Lodge feels peaceful and relaxing. One of the 3 Sipi Falls is on the hotel's grounds and it's stream runs alongside some of the bandas. The garden is pretty and the grounds feel well maintained. It is not easy to get such lovely, well-organised accommodation in such a remote area of Africa. However, things worked better than could...

We had a few days relaxing between Christmas and New Year. No internet, no TV, little or no mobile signal. BLISS. Beautiful setting with great walks. Not one, but three spectacular waterfalls. Good food and friendly service. Just what was needed after a very busy festive period. Well, well worth the journey.

Lovely Banda with fantastic views of the waterfall, great shower, huge bed. Food well cooked and plentiful and service great, didn't want to leave. 3rd time here my favourite place in Uganda, and each time I come there have been signs of continuing improvements while still retaining what works well.

I have not slept here but only passed through while having a drink at their bar / restaurant. The hotel look spectacular. The cleanliness, the decor and the good vibes make me wish I could go back and stay there.

Sipi River Lodge is well place, a green serene and a stream roaring as flows down through the Elgon, i had an amazing experience with the guides and the staffs who are always welcoming with a smile. The facility is ideal for both families and can be a good choice for honey moon among newly weds.

Stayed here for 5 nights and can not fault any part of the experience. The accommodation is lovely, staff welcoming and friendly with nothing too much for them. Huge benefit is hot, powerful showers which is often advertised but intermittent in this part of the world.

I stayed here last weekend as a relaxation/hiking weekend with a friend. Locations amazing, food was delicious, rooms were perfect and the manager Rick was beyond helpful. Nothing was too much for them. I cannot recommend this place enough.
