We stayed one night in the Kiboko cottage and it was lovely. Well equipped room with a good shower, nice beds and good food. We took the tour of the plantation and the young man was knowledgeable and it was an interesting tour. There were several large tour groups with loud people, but that cannot be helped! More buffet food, and would have liked some sit down choices instead of buffet. The morning buffet had a large number of people waiting at the egg station, so we just gave up on that choice. Beautiful grounds, friendly staff and adequate internet for USD5 for 35 minutes. Nice pool, but it was a bit too chilly for that! It is 30+ minutes to the crater.
