Claire even went into town to get Nicky some shorts so she could swim in the lake..! Thank you to Claire and all her staff for making us feel... 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)

I arrived at Crater Bay Cottages planning to spend one night, but I ended up staying nine. The garden is beautiful with lovely views over the lake. The food is tasty and my room with a shared bath was very reasonably-priced, but aboveall the people make this a really great place!

We stayed at Crater Bay Cottages for three nights, having read the good reviews here on trip advisor. The new Bandas are spacious and very nice. The location is good, although you get some noise from the Overland truck people from the Overland camp that is about 100meters away. However, for us the rude behaviour of some of the staff... More

I stayed here in July 2013 - unfortunately, I arrived late and it was already dark. The cottages are located right on the lake. Staff is incredibly nice and service is great. Claire (owner) was wonderful and we chatted for quite some time. Food was great - I had dinner and breakfast; the African tea was excellent! Rooms are huge,... More
