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

I loved this place so much. The staff was great and helpful always smiles and eager to help you out. Surjio the owner is a great guy and love his ideology and what he envisions for the place. Our room had a scenic view, the showers where hot and the WiFi was fast. I felt more relaxed than I had... More

We spent on night in jinja at Surjios and this was the highlight of our two weeks in Uganda. The room quality was excellent, the service and personal approach from Surj made it a home from home. Our kids loved the pizza, as did we. Very good value and a definite for our next visit to Uganda.

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
