Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights for Gorilla trekking. Given Room 1 (closest to the main hotel complex) which was very comfortable and had a great view of the mountains. If anyone has read a previous bad review re theft, there are now combination/key safes in the rooms. The shower is pretty pathetic,if you have long hair just don't plan to wash it whilst your there. It is cool at night but they do light a fire in your room each night and put a hot water bottle in your bed. I felt warm enough. The food is average, drinks range good. This hotel is fine enough for a stay whilst going to see the Gorillas. They even clean your boots on your return from your trek.
