Location: As previously noted by many, you cannot beat the location. It's right next to the Kibale NP. No hustle in the morning of chimp trekking. Upon arrival, I was greeted by a red tailed monkey and saw many other monkeys during my stay. If you are planning a visit to the Bigoti Swamp, it's also close by (about 15 min drive).
Service: All staff was very nice and they went out of their way to help.
Rooms: I stayed two nights in one of their cottages. Inside was cool, simple yet comfortable. The shower was the biggest disappointment during my stay. Hot water is available only from 6pm (as well as electricity) and that is ok.
But once it became available, the shower alternated from freezing cold to scalding hot. Nothing between. I had to wash up while it went from hot to cold (2min), step out(1.5min), and repeat.
It became especially frustrating after I came back all sweaty and dirty from trekking and other activities and I just wanted to take a good shower. Hope this will be improved.
Food: The food was tasty but their vegetarian menu was slightly lacking. On the day of my arrival, I was served Indian for both lunch and dinner. They also got me wrong sides on both days.
Other: Wi-fi worked fine at the reception area. They have a charging station at the bar.
Overall I had a great stay and would def. come back.
