Absolutely lovely room with a wonderful view of the lake. New amenities, nice design, swimming pool, free canoes for guests, big breakfast. The food at the restaurant was pretty good and the service was prompt. A bit more friendliness from the staff would have been nice. Overall, we'd stay there again.

We had a quick one night stop over at Birdnest while on our honeymoon to split up the drive between Lake Mburo and Bwindi Impenetrable Forest - the hotel was located perfectly for that purpose, and we enjoyed the views as well as a quick canoe trip on the lake. The food was appetizing and plentiful, and I would recommend... More

Plus points - amazing view of the lake, a big room and all seemed very modern and professional. We stayed one night. Negatives - the staff seemed a lot less friendly or interested than the other places we had stayed. The food was still good but not to the high standard we had been told to expect.

Great views and very good food at the Birdnest. We took a dugout canoe out on the lake from the lodge. There are beautiful views from the rooms. We had nice hot showers which is a plus in Uganda. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had to leave at 5am to go gorilla trekking and asked for box breakfasts... More

Big family rooms with a nice view on the lake, The best breakfast we had in Uganda. A helpful staff and a friendly place to stay. We organized the gorilla tracking to Rushaga (Bwindi) from here which took about a 90 minutes drive to the UWA starting point.

We stayed for 2 nights here and enjoyed ourselves for the most part. The owner was onsite so that helped overall. The evening meal was incredibly slow on our first night, so on our second evening we ordered at 5:00pm while having drinks and told them we wanted to eat at 7:00pm. That strategy worked though might not have worked... More

Hotel-style accommodation right on the shore of Lake Bunyonyi. Comfortable rooms, good food, free wifi, helpful staff. Some of my group went to do an homestay on a local island and the management were kind enough to allow all of them to shower when they returned. Much appreciated!

After a few days in the mountains with cold water, random power and not so good food, Birdnest is a very nice retreat. We arrived dirty, cold and hungry and we were given a huge family room with double beds ("Well, you asked for separate beds and this is what we have") for the same price as a double room.... More

We stayed 3 nights in the Birdnest from 25/05/2014 until 28/05/2014. There is a spectacular view 360° around the hotel. The staff is very friendly and competent, the food is excellent & the rooms are decorated with a real eye for detail (and btw the box spring is great!). The hotel bathes in an honest, relaxed atmosphere. It's finished off... More
