I spend some days in July 2014 at the Crater Bay Cottages. It was a wonderful chance to release and open my mind up for new creative ideas. The whole personal (Claire, here entire Family and the entire stuff) are really welcoming and friendly. Wishing to spend more pleasant days in this beautiful landscape :-)

This hotel was cheap, the lake-side location was great for swimming and canoeing with some pleasant grassed areas, and the restaurant food was tasty. Tip 1: If possible place your order in advance to minimise waiting times. Tip 2: we can recommend a visit to the Community Project 'Bunyonyi Impact' which was founded by the Manager, Claire Kwesiga. Good works... More

I first arrived at Crater Bay Cottages in May and instantly felt at home. The views across the lake are incredible! The location is excellent, set right on the lake amongst beautiful gardens. They have access to dugout canoes and motorboats to take you around the area and across to some of the islands (a must when in the area).... More

We've been working around Lake Bunyonyi and have stayed at Crater Bay Cottages for a month now. Absolutely loved it! The staff are lovely and have been really helpful with everything (even our strange working hours!). The location is beautiful, with a jetty out onto the lake that's a great place to swim from. The food is really good -... More

Lake Bunyonyi is a magical place, definitely worth visiting! We were lucky to find Crater Bay Cottages, this fantastic place on the shores of the lake with simple, clean rooms and fantastic staff! The food is wonderful (you must try crayfish)
