“A friendl and helpful hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Isamilo lodge is set in a Superb location overlooking Mwanza and lake Victoria. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff really friendly and helpful.
The food is very good especially their Indian menu, and well priced

They are currently building a large extension which when finished promises to make this hotel a real gem.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms in the old wing are a little small. All the rooms in the new wing are planned to...

Isamilo Lodge has 4 different areas where one can enjoy a lunch or dinner outing. The accommodation is good by local standards, The manager , Darmesh , will do all to help make your visit a pleasant one.

The food is well prepared and catering is for a wide range of tastes...Chinese, Indian, Tanzanian..
Additionally the lodge has a night club attached , convenient for the night revellers.. So a room away from the weekend party goers noise is recommended.

The dining area at the very top gives breathtaking views of the evening sunset over the Lake. With the new block of the hotel nearly ready, the accommodation and views can only get better !!!!

Room Tip: Away from the Disco club if you like peace and quiet !!!!

Stayed for one night in November. Lovely location. Friendly staff. Clean room. The air conditioning worked great. The fish in the restaurant was excellent. The only downside was it was a Friday night and it was incredibly noisy. Ask for a room in a quiet section.. Sleeping was impossible.

I stayed in this lodge 1 night before my boat trip to Bukoba.
The hotel is very nice and clean. Friendly staf en good Indian food. I payed for one and a half day and on the check out day I could stay in the room as long as I wanted, which was until 7.00pm. I could use the hotel computer and internet for free, which was very usefull to me. The location is not super. It is a little far from town and there is nothing in the area, ecxept the view over Lake Victoria in the distance.
There were almost no other guests when I was there and lots of staff. The staff members were very nice, but they looked a little bored, because they had not much to do. With some more guests, this place could be brilliant.
