Stayed here some time ago. The location is close to the Volcano National Park and in a nice quite location close to a couple of shops and restaurants. No cooked breakfast but the continental breakfast was great, lovely Papaya with other tropical fruit. Since we've been back we've done the same breakfast for ourselves when the fruit's in season.

We stayed at the Volcano Forest Inn Jan. 8, 2015. We just needed a place to stay for one night, as we wanted to see the glow of the lava from the museum at night, and didn't want to drive in the dark. This place fit the bill. It was decently priced and very close to the Jagger Museum. Unfortunately,... More

Checked into the Rainforest room and loved the spacious, clean and peaceful ambiance. Location is perfect for exploring the nearby Volcanoes Natl Park. Breakfast was served during a rather short one hour window, from 7:30 to 8:30, which was a bit early and brief for us although others anxious to start their day might not mind. Our preference would be... More

The room was clean, yet quite outdated. Although the chocolates were a nice touch. The owner didn't have the customer service approach as most of the other BnBs I have stayed at. His helper, woman there in the morning, was incredibly rude to the point of telling him, in front of me, that she wished the guests were not there... More

This was a great stay. I either did not read carefully or it wasn't explicit, but the property is less of an inn and more of a B&B. That being said the location and hospitality was great. I would recommend.

We had a great stay at the Volcano Forest Inn. We spent all day driving and exploring Volcanos park with 2 small children. At the end of the day we were exhausted so it was great having only a 5 minute drive from the park to the Volcano Forest Inn. We had a spacious room which was great for the... More

This property has only 4 rooms and they are huge and beautiful. You cannot beat the convenience either. The Inn is right in the middle of Volcano Village and only a couple of minutes from the entrance to the park. Dan the manager lives on property and was extremely welcoming. I should also say that breakfast was also great and... More

We brought our grandchildren (ages 7 and 10) to visit the Volcanoes and initially tried to make reservations at the 2 other better known hotels in the area but they were all booked. We were really happy because our stay at the Volcano Forest Inn was very comfortable, very peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of a bigger... More

We normally stay in large commercially owned places when we travel, but since there are not many options in Volcano Village,we chose to stay here. Think of it more as a bed and breakfast. Free breakfast is offered in the morning (cooked fresh) but you really don't have any say as to what you want - since the total number... More

What a wonderful way to end a busy day. Great rooms and great host. The whole family enjoyed a tasty breakfast. Clean and comfortable. If you are in Volcano Village for the night, this is certainly a comfortable place to revive.
