This hotel has amazing view to lake Bunyonyi. Rooms are spacious. It was strange, that there was hair shampoo and body lotion in bath room, but no soap. Music and people in bar was pretty loud, also at night, and it prevented us from sleeping. It was Christmas time, so probably that was the reason why hotel was noisy and...

Dear guest, we understand your remarks about the disturbances of noisy guests, but as you have mentioned yourself, this is due to the festivity period. Xmas is the most busy period of the year and not representativ for the rest of the year. Many people are moving these days and of course in the first place families because of holidays....

We stayed in Birdnest Eco-Overseas in December 2015 (around 21/22/23) and it was awesome. Our bungalow was lovely, the staff was amazing (they even brought warm milk in the evening, to meet special requests of a very pregnant wife :) and the food was simply outstanding. The canoe transport to our "private" Eco Island was efficient and quick; life jacket...

Lovely hotel on the banks of lake Bunyonyi. This results in a beautiful view and cool, calm refreshing ambience. The rooms are spacious with basic but comfortable furniture. The food is continental and well prepared. Wifi available but very slow when I visited. The pool is small but adequate with a poolside bar.

Dear Wasolo, thanks for giving us a good score with your positiv review. Concerning Wifi, we are depending on the incoming signal from the internet providers, which once in a while is a bit slower due to weather circumstances. Good news is that early 2017 we are planning to shift to satelite internet which will be much more stable and...

We stayed here 2 nights during our 2-weeks tour in Uganda. The room with lake-view was spacious with a nice bathroom and balcony. The food was very well but the service in the restaurant could be better. The menu is too much choice and everyone can choose à la carte so for dinner you have to count a few hours....

Dear, Beste Karin, Although we speak the same language I will reply you in English. Never in the history of BirdNest Resort a guest had to wait for 'hours' to get his meal. That would be very rediculous. It is also funny that on the same day another guest mentioned he would certainly come back if ever in Uganda again....
