Wow great guest house. We were here on a group visit to coach kids football. Stayed here for 12 night and had a great time. Food was great morning, noon and night. All staff were so friendly and helpful. Ben the owner was a great guy. Rooms were basic but better than we all expected. Hot water was sometimes an... 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

We had a lovely time during our stay at Good News Guest House! Ben and the rest of the staff were so very friendly and accommodating. We have two young children (2 and almost 4) and it was a great place to stay with them, with a variety of foods for breakfast, a lovely yard to run around in, and... More

I went to Rwanda in June with a group from my school and was rather impressed by the standard of the guest house. We travelled around whilst we were there but we always returned to the guest house and were more than happy to! All the staff are exceptionally friendly and always willing to help, not to mention the chefs... More

I spent 6 weeks at the Good News Guest House while studying and working in Rwanda and my experience was highly enriched and made wonderful by staying at the guest house. I was so well taken care of and made comfortable during what was my first time in Africa. I will return to this place frequently throughout the rest of... More

Stayed two separate nights here. Grounds are lovely. Rooms are basic but good. Internet was a bit weak but still I would stay here again. For the price, it is hard to do better. Ate 2 evening meals and 2 breakfasts here. Found them to be very good. Of course, it helps that the views from our table were exceptional.... More

This place is clean enough. The food is good (it takes a LONG time to get it, so order well before you are hungry). The internet wasn't very good - but this is africa. It's hard to find cheap accommodation in Kigali - so I'd probably stay here again.
