We traveled here with a group of volunteers on a medical mission trip and stayed here for 10 days. The staff members were very attentive and helpful. The food was very good and the surrounding area was beautiful.

Had an excellent time staying here while documenting a medical mission. Close enough to visit Lake Bunyonyi. The food was delicious and the staff was pleasant. Wi-Fi only works in dining room and lobby. Felt very safe here and they supply mosquito nets. Also will do your laundry for a small fee.

Staff here was reasonably friendly, and it is perhaps a good option for being in Kabale town. A couple of meals were pretty tasty. There was some fun children's play equipment in the yard. And yet there were two types of rooms to choose from. A cheaper one for 40 USD whose walls were so thin we could hear the... More
