This lodge has incredible views of the surrounding mountains. The staff was quite nice and food was also very good. The rooms were rather small, but clean. Because they run on a generator, there isn't power at all times and the hot water was intermittent. I never did have a hot shower, but the weather was hot, so it didn't really matter. There are a lot of mosquitos, and they seemed to find their way inside the netting, so keep your windows shut.
This lodge is convenient to the gorilla trekking. It's up on a top of a hill, so need to drive to the little village and trekking starting point. Otherwise, a long walk uphill back to the lodge.
I would recommend this lodge as the staff was so nice and the food quite good. We really didn't spend that much time in the room. The lobby area was a great place to sit and have a drink, discuss the day, and enjoy the views.
