Recently refurbished, The Wooden House was very comfortable and well appointed. The staff were extremely helpful, the meals of a good standard and the hotel had a welcoming ambience with a bar and sitting area beside the long dining table. The Laundry facilities were made good use of by our group after a long, hot trek up the volcano.

Lovely place - great meals far above standard found elsewhere. Clean and helpful and friendly staff who were happy to provide anything needed. Good facilities for washing dirty trekking boots and very dirty laundry dealt with very fast and very well.

Nothing fancy, but nice and clean rooms. Friendly and serviceminded staff. Wifi was only present in the common areas such as the reception, the bar and pool and the restaurant. The hotel, pool and restaurant is small and the restaurant has only one dinner, and dinner booking are made in advance. Good and fast laundry service.
