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

Our family has been traveling to the Jinja area for the past 3 years and we love Surjio's! The property is beautiful, the pizza delicious and the staff incredible! We always feel welcomed and at home! A relaxing little slice of heaven whether traveling as a family or for business! You won't be disappointed!

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

After reading the reviews here and booking this place 24 hours before check-in, we had a great 2 night stay at the tail end of our Uganda visit. Check In: Smooth as can be. Some groups were around and all seeming to be volunteers that were well settled in. Nice small pool, outdoor seating for breakfast and their famous pizzas.... More

After travelling around Uganda for 2 weeks (as part of an extended East Africa trip), we found ourselves still exhausted 2 days after gorilla trekking, and decided last minute to stay in Jinja before carrying on to Kenya. I am sure other travellers can empathize with finding yourself unexpectedly in a city, having no real idea where to stay or... More
