We spent the night at this bed and breakfast so we could view the crater at night. The staff are nice, the room are very large and comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and we enjoyed the fresh local fruit. I would stay here again if I return to the area.

This B&B is right at the Park entrance, well kept with spacious rooms, BUT NOT A B&B ! The Owner lives in California, and the Innkeeper just has a negative personality. He works here simply to have a job. He makes the stay negative. It needs a real hospitality host. I don't recommend that you stay here!

The location is so close to the entry of the Volcano National Park, and is amongst lovely rainforest. You are awoken by beautiful birdsong, then treated to a delicious cooked breakfast! The rooms are very large, with a nice ensuite and balcony. Your hosts are very friendly and helpful, we would definitely stay here again!

The Volcano Forest Inn is nestled back from the road in the fern forest. Lots of cheerful chirping forest birds create a beautiful melody to wake up to. The inn is only 6 years old with completely modern facilities, a very comfortable and nicely decorated room. The owners are friendly and helpful and cook up a nice breakfast. They are... More

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. Stayed... More

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The room was clean, yet quite outdated.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
