I have stayed at Good News a few times on trips to Rwanda. This time was a school trip. The accommodation is in two parts old and new. Both have spotless comfortable rooms. The gardens are beautiful and the view over Kigali is incredible. Food is excellent and you can sit and enjoy your breakfast in the garden listening to the colourful birds or watching the kites and mouse birds in the trees. Staff are super helpful and friendly. As a safe, comfy, clean place with great food to stay in Kigali Good News would be my recommendation.

Great to stay at Good News again - always a friendly welcome from Ben and the team. They meet us at the airport and provide a light meal on arrival. The rooms are comfortable and clean, with views from the balconies. Breakfast in the garden is always a highlight - lots of fresh fruit, eggs to order, pancakes, toast, tea and coffee etc. Other meals are cooked to order by their chef and taste lovely.

If you ever visit Kigali, this is definitely the best place to stay. They treat you like a family. The chef cooks to order. The atmosphere is very peaceful and the view is amazing, especially at night. There is excellent security. The rooms are clean and quite adequate. the price is mid range. They speak English. It is only 10 minutes from the city centre by taxi. The wifi is good. However, if you are eating breakfast in the garden, spray your ankles with mosquito repellent!

I stayed at the Good News Guest House as part of a group booking and had a room in the modern annexe. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with a mozzie net over the beds and a balcony that had fantastic views over Kigali. The room had an en-suite with toilet, wash hand basin and shower. The breakfasts were excellent – fresh fruit, pancakes, French toast, omelettes, tea, coffee and all served in the amazing gardens with views out over Kigali - a really lovely start to the day. But what sets this accommodation apart are Ben and his staff. They treat you like one of the family, they are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. I arranged trips to Akagera National Park and Volcano National Park through the guesthouse too. Their drivers were very friendly and knowledgeable and both trips were amazing. All in all, they made my visit to Rwanda a very relaxing, enjoyable and memorable experience.

The Guest House make you feel at home during your stay no matter how far you’ve travelled! The staff are at the guest are the nicest and most helpful people. The surrounding around the guest house are amazing and it’s nice to eat a meal in the gardens. The views from the bedroom balconies is amazing and you can see so much of Kigali. Cannot fault anything at all about the Guest House or my stay in Rwanda. Thank you so much for making the trip even better! Would highly recommend.
