We stayed here for 2 nights in February 2020 while visiting the churches and hiking in Gheralta. The rooms are very comfortable, the food is good and the service is excellent. Views are spectacular. All in all, it's a lovely place to use as a base for hiking in the mountains. Ethiopia has so much to offer, and this is a great place to include on any trip.

We stayed in a private bungalow with a view of the impressive Gheralta mountains from our patio. Excellent accommodations and food. A refreshing place to return after hiking the mountains and exploring churches. Turns out that not only are the owners friendly and great managers, but also are experts on the area who have published books about the region and its history. They generously spent an hour one day answering our questions and tutoring us. Beautiful landscaping and sweet animals (horses, dogs, cats, birds) add to the authentic Ethiopian lodge feel. Can't recommend this place highly enough.

We arrived at Korkor Lodge after 2 days of hot, dusty trekking, having stayed the previous night in a mud hut without water or electricity. The sight of a large glass of chilled wine, a lovely bedroom with a stunning view and a shower with lots of piping hot water was just heaven! The service was wonderful and the Swiss/Italian owners were utterly charming. There are lots of wonderful churches and a local market to visit nearby and so |I would strongly recommend that you add Korkor Lodge to your visit to Ethiopia.

Room Tip: Number 9 was my room and it was perfect. Being slightly on its own meant that I could play music...

The owners were extremely warm and welcoming. The food was excellent and the accomodation was amazing. we wished we had stayed there an extra day. you can see the quality of service because the owners personally check everything. I wish them success. very tranquil and relaxing. Maybe add a swimming pool?

What a lovely place: the "cabins" were beautiful and african in feel, the view of the Gheralta Escarpment was just beautiful, and the Italian/Swiss couple have done a beautiful job. Francoise was wonderful to talk with. Did I mention the food? The best we had in Ethiopia.

After we’d left the lodge and continued our trip by car down to the Danakil desert I realised I’d left my beloved Columbia trainers behind. Messages were sent. They were found. They were then put on a bus to Mekele which is 2 hours away with a member of staff and delivered to me just in time for the next leg of our 1400km road trip. I mean who does that these days? Thank you Luigi and team. The lodge is perched on a little escarpment overlooking Tigray’s desert drama. It’s not luxurious which is at it should be in this landscape: comfy rooms, delightful people, somewhere to relax or if you want to clamber up steep mountain paths to extraordinary rock- hewn churches. Angelo the manager thoughtful and attentive. I could nitpick: more could be done with local ingredients by the chef to liven things up. For my money more injira less pasta. They could get some tonic in although gin and freshly squeezed papaya juice with lime works. Overall - memorable.

The lodge is located across from Gheralta Mountain and is great. The individual cottages are lovely each one looking out on Gheralta. It is owned and run by a lovely couple who have done a magnificent job in designing and building the lodge. And dinner is included and is great. Truly wonderful food and wine and conversation. If you go to Ethiopia, do not pass this place by.

A marvellous place to be. Worth the long trip from Addis (flight, jipp) just to enjoy a coffee there. The location, the amazing view of the rocks, the rooms, the dining place, all perfect! The Swiss owners being there to help plan excursions, to solve everything and to promote a noble atmosphere of good mood, culture and superb hospitality. I wish to be once again in the future by Luigi and Francoise. Στο επανειδειν!
