I stayed at both Surjii's and Two Friends, and Two Friends was exponentially nicer for only a modest increase in cost. Two Friends was cleaner and had friendlier staff, a much nicer pool, and on-site massages.

It's. It quite as nice as something fancy in the states but it's a great option that is safe and has a resort type feeling. Nice pool and the restaurant had GREAT pizza. I recommend you order a Stoney to drink.

The staff are extremely helpful and courteous! We tried pretty much everything on the menu, and it was all delicious! The pizza is made in a brick oven. The prices are...

Came over from Kampala for a two night vacation. The staff is wonderful! The family room was perfect for our family of four. The pizza was tasty and they have real pepperoni!! Spent two days around the pool. Highly recommended!!!

We finished our round trip of Uganda off in style with a stay at the beautiful Surjios guest house and we loved every minute. Rooms were spotlessly clean and the staff were great too. Thanks for looking after us, see you again soon.

Surjio's is a normal stop for my co- workers and I as we travel to the capital of Uganda. Each time there has been wonderful. This last visit found me in a few major issues. Surj and his staff were extremely helpful. They went above and beyond just being a business and were family. Words cannot express my gratitude. Will...

The staff are brilliant - Elizabeth & Miriam are real gemS! The service we received was EXCELLENT. We had a relaxing time around the pool and enjoyed the breakfasts and restaurant area and the lovely gardens. One slight issue was that the children's mosquito nets didn't serve their purpose. Overall we had a very enjoyable stay and would recommend this...

I was hoping to stay somewhere in Jinja for a week of retreat before a busy few weeks in a village. Surjios was the perfect place for this! The peaceful and calm atmosphere is rare to find in Jinja, especially somewhere with a pool. I was able to completely relax. The staff were helpful and friendly but not intrusive. The...
