My wife and I return to Rwanda every year as part of a charity group. We've been staying at Good News Guest House since 2013 and I can safely say that the quality of service and food is second to none!! We were there in July/August 2016 and were delighted to see that the extension that was being started when... More

I stayed at Good News with a group of friends visiting Rwanda with the Comfort Rwanda and Congo charity. I was expecting spartan accommodation and basic food but instead was pleasantly surprised by comfort and abundant deliciousness. Small rooms but clean and comfortable and from what I could see the new building is bigger and even nicer. Meals were flexible... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Never having been to Rwanda before, I wasn't sure what to expect, but the Good News Guest House has excelled in all areas. Large rooms, comfortable beds, and en-suite bathrooms. Clean and tidy. Food is a revelation - all freshly prepared on the premises - and easily surpassed the food we received in the few restaurants... More

The GNGH is so lovely. We have stayed there two different summer trips. The owners are amazing. The staff is friendly and will go out of their way to help you. Kitchen girl chopped up sugar cane for us which we bought on the side of the road. Yard worker climbed the avocado tree to retrieve one for us. The... More

Friendly and prompt service in beautiful setting. Great for groups! You won' regret choosing this location. We have traveled in various places in East Africa so we are familiar with other options. The rooms here are clean and comfortable with the option of have a common living area between two rooms. Great meeting facilities with very helpful staff.

If you read the reviews about the GNGH you can see that this place is rated very highly. I concur, stay here you wont be disappointed. As many have said a little away from the centre but for us this was good. Very quiet and relaxing with a lovely garden to sit in. Many Africans stay here which I like... More
