Stayed there for a night. The food (dinner and breakfast) was delicious and the staff were very friendly and proffesional. The lounge area was also a very cozy place to chill and grab a beer before we headed off to spacious the rooms. Looking forward to having a longer stay there.

This was my first holiday back in Uganda with my two sons and girlfriend, My sons are aged 13 and 8 years and still talk about the experience as if it was yesterday. My youngest son tried the chef delicious "goats soup" and he tells everyone who bares to ask him about his trip to Uganda. We stayed in the... More

Stayed for two nights at this strategically located and beautiful establishment, that had a few areas that need attention. 1. Electricity; only if the intention of management is to ensure that the clients leave behind all their electronic appliances and actually have an unpluged holiday, then they are doing a good job of hoarding electricity coz there was no power...

We are the only guests staying here and are given the cottage furthest away from the enormous hotel. Our guide Charles is accommodated in the hotel building which is enormous but completetly deserted. The cottage was very basic with a shower that leaked everywhere and the whole of our stay we had to climb over puddles to get to the... More

Hi Belinda We don't seem to have a record of your stay at our hotel. We always record all guests visiting as a legal requirement but we have no such record. Anyway, thank you for the review nevertheless. A plumber has been through all the rooms and the plumbing has been checked and any issues sorted out. We have also... More

Very fiendly hotel with nice accommodation and great views. Has solar powered lights for when power is down. Good base for the gorilla trek and 8km from main town. I was the only guest after the solar eclipse but I was looked after well. No wi-fi through.

I stayed at this place on my way to Bwindi gorilla park. The hotel is located right on the shores of Lake Bunyonyi, a very beautiful and scenic lake. We arrived in time for cray fish dinner. The food was fresh and very tasty. The chef had prepared a sample of fresh vegetarian dishes as well and we were told... More

I'm giving the Bunyonyi Safaris Resort 5 stars, not because it is perfect, but because we had a wonderful time staying there. Like many people we stayed there as part of our Gorilla trekking experience in the Bwindi Forest. The resort is on the shores of the beautiful Lake Bunyonyi and although the main building looks a little out of... More

Let me start by talking about two great things about this place: the staff and the location. Staff is fantastic! Costmas spend the day with me, as a guide, a paddler on the canoe, and personal chef. Looks like I was the only guest of the hotel as I did not see another soul during my (short, 1 night) stay.... More

On the shores of this lake beautiful small birds surround you and your ears. The main building is hugh and in contrast with the landscape. You may feel a bit lost in the empty dining room. But the cottages fit well in the environment. On its terrace you can overlook the bays, the islands, the small boats passing by and... More
