Setting is fantastic. it really could not be better, right at the briefing point for the start of the gorilla trekking. We stayed in a permanent tent which was surprisingly en-suite with hot water throughout the day! Each tent has a lovely balcony which looks out onto the forest. You could really sit there all day just watching the mist and clouds roll over. The furnishings in the tent are adequate, nothing too posh but a comfortable bed all the same. Mosquito nets provided which did the job. The food in the restaurant was basic but edible but i thought the area was a great place to hang about at the end of a hard days trekking. The electric charging points in the bar area was a bonus. The only real issue is that the tents are pretty much permanently damp, as is all your clothing, towels etc. I don't suppose there really is much they can do about this as it is in the rainforest after all. Make sure that you take a fleece with you as it is pretty chilly in the evenings.
Staff throughout our stay were pleasent and helpful. No complaints there either.
