Unfortunately we only managed to stay one night in this lovely hotel. The food was fresh and the service very friendly. Can't wait to go back again. Totally relaxing and very comfortable. Just loved it!

I first stayed here in March of 2013 with my girlfriend after completing a medical/dental brigade with TO the WORLD. At that time we were blown away by how beautiful the property was and how great the food was. So, this past year I rebooked our group of 26 medical and dental volunteers to spend a night over the weekend... More

The restaurant serves great food and cold beer try the cray fish they are excellent. One of the waiters Godfrey could not have been more friendly and made us feel... More

We stayed 2 nights in the Birdnest. Very good room, wonderful view from the terrace, good breakfast, friendly staff. The food is great, they made a small buffet specially for us, it was very good. And we loved the house dog from the owner. Our compliments for the 2 days we stayed in the Birdnest.

Excellent rooms with very good beds and great bathroom. The whole place has a very nice athmosphere with a beautifull terrace and a great view. Everything high quality and the food is excellent. Swimming pool is a bit slippery because of natural water but that is the only small minor thimg I could mention. Absolutely worth a visit!

Staff were very friendly and helpful during our stay. The location on the lake is idyllic and you can use their dug-out canoes to explore some bird life. The canoes are difficult to steer. Swimming pool was a little algae-ous but that doesn't bother me too much. They have the cutest dog, Pacino there! Rooms are lovely and decor is... More

Booked two nights to treat myself at the end of my Uganda trip and had a great time. The food was superb or very good depending on which chef was on, the view was wonderful and the beds (imported from Belgium) are one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The hotel is well designed and with a lovely... More

The hotel is spacious. Our twin room was enormous with the most beautiful view of Lake Bunyonyi. The open bathroom took a bit of getting used to but it was quite nice. Whilst the food in the restaurant was good the service was extremely slow. We waited over an hour for our dinner which was curious given that there were... More

This would be a slightly above average review from me in most places but you won't find better on lake Buniyoni. It's the only hotel with a generator and given that electricity constantly goes out you will be glad that you are here. The food and service are very good, the views beautiful and you can do some light hiking... More

This hotel has a interesting history (more info on their website) The rooms are spacious and nice decorated. Good swimming pool with beautiful views to the lake. But the best thing off this hotel is the fine food they prepare in their kitchen!! Good value.
