We spent a night at Surjio's on our way back to Kampala from a visit to the east of Uganda. It is a lovely oasis of calm, and we had a very relaxing stop over. One of the rooms we were originally shown to (which was enormous and beautiful with amazing lake views), was separated from the rest of our... More

This was a real treat after staying at another hotel in Uganda. It was clean, well maintained and great staff. There was hot water, swimming pool and quiet. Would certainly return if in the area of Jinga!! Some members of our team had problems with hot water and getting it turned on and off, but overall a nice place to... More

We arrived very late after a long drive from Nairobi, the restaurant was closed, but the staff agreed to make us pizzas - most appreciated!. The gardens are green, lush and full of character. There is a nice swimming pool to relax in. The rooms were basic but had everything you might need for a night or two. Surjio's is... More

During an extended stay in Kampala, we needed a relaxing stay close to some action for our teenage twins. We chose Jinja, and after two dreadful nights in a hotel near by Surjio, we stumbled over Surjio's Guesthouse. A quick guided tour of the premises, and we decided to save the rest of our stay in Jinja by checking in.... More

Surjio was a brilliant host and we had a great stay in one of his three bedroom apartments. He responded promptly to emails, was available to answer questions I had prior to the visit and connected us to an excellent taxi driver when we arrived. The apartment was spacious and included a washing machine and two bathrooms. There were guards... More

Our Mission team stayed at Serjios for a week. It's a marvelous, serene home-away-from-home environment overlooking Lake Victoria. The employees are warm & attentive to your needs from the front desk, housecleaning to food service. The food is scrumptious, i.e, talapia or brick oven pizza. I just can't say enough good things about this hotel/B&B & it's owner Serjio, himself.... More

I stopped on there on my way to All Terrain Adventure. Good for people who want to keep away from the noise and bustle.. The prices are Ok but not for the average Ugandan. It is found in the middle of Jinja town and so is conveniently situated for a number of activities in and around Jinja.

Went to this hotel on a recommendation of a friend with my son. It was a beautiful garden spot a mere few steps from the Nile. The room was roomy and modern with hot shower and a comfortable bed, our room next to the pool. Good Italian food altho somewhat limited menu if staying more than a few nights. Great... More

Surjio's came highly recommended to me and it did not disappoint. A wonderful, relaxing oasis with great attention from the staff. Surjio really takes time to know the fellow guests and makes you feel at home. This is a perfect place for solo travelers. And best of the all, the spinach calzone is a must try from the kitchen!

Stopped here with my team between villages while doing aid type work in Uganda. This place knows how to cater to a westerner. So many other hotels that we visit, while still clean and safe, don't feel like home or restful. They have TV's and weird layouts and not enough windows. Our room here was open, clean, well simply layed... More
