I love staying here! Breakfast is great! Soda is cold and pizza is wonderful. Just make sure you get your pricing in writing as they like to renegotiate the rate when you arrive unless u have a printed email from Sergio. Also the neighbors get loud when they get drunk at night. Welcome to Uganda!

We have stayed here several years now for an annual trip. We love the property, the food, the staff, the location. They have very nice accommodations and go above and beyond to take care of their guests.

An enforced last minute change of plans saw us lost in Jinja in our self drive vehicle with night falling. We enquired at a couple of hotels but none would give us a discount despite the late hour. We were then directed to Surjios by a Boda Boda driver. The colonial style house is sat in gated grounds a block... More

We stayed at Surjio's when we visited Jinja for a week to meet our sons that we are adopting from the area. Surjio's was the PERFECT PLACE. Beautiful room, beautiful garden, and beautiful pool. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They even helped teach us some phrases in Lusoga (local language), as our boys don't yet speak English:). The... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Surjios and it is wonderful...spacious rooms, huge bathroom, comfy bed, hot shower, and nice porch to set up a camera or just sit out there and visit. Surjio and his wife make you feel like family. The pizzas and calzones are delicious as is breakfast. The staff is most efficient and... More

I've stayed at this beautiful guest house twice and was thrilled with the personal attention we received from Surjio himself! The food at the restaurant was delicious, especially the veggie pizza. The rooms were clean and comfortable, along with stone showers and gorgeous porch settings to linger on and talk.

For the second time I stayed at Surjio's. As already the first time, also this second time was great. The rooms are nice and clean, there is warm water all the time and the pizzas are delicious (especially the tandoori one). Also breakfast was very good and served frehsly but still quite quick. I can defenitely recommend Surjio's, especially if... More

This was my second time staying at Surjio's, where guests are treated like family. The very private property is beautifully located, and the view of Lake Victoria breathtaking. If you're looking for some rest and relaxation, this is the place for you! There is outside dining available on site, with pizza as a specialty. The complimentary breakfast is very nice,... More

We were on our first trip to Uganda for two weeks of mission work and the last 4 nights of our trip we stayed at Surjio's Guest House. We did not know what to expect and could not have been happier. Every element of the guest house from the moment we set foot inside the gate was relaxing. We stayed... More
