“Great relaxing getaway from Kampala!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

I live in Kampala and so Jinja is a great getaway from Kampala since it is close. Surjios is great as it is very relaxing. There is a great pool, and the server's are really nice and accomadating. I would recommend Surjio's for groups, families, or individuals. The Pizza is also great!

Room Tip: If you are a family of 4, you should request room 8 as it is a bigger quad room. It has a queen bed...

I have stayed here a number of times and have never been disappointed. The place is clean, the rooms are massive with balcony overlooking the lake,pizza,s are the best in town and the service is warm and welcoming.

If you are looking for a place to wind down by the pool, get some peace and quiet then you are in for a treat.


I even get my cab booked to the airport.

Surjio's was a good value for the money. The room was clean and the food was good. The best part was the staff - they were very attentive to all our needs, even the things that were a bit above and beyond. I would recommend Surjios to anybody going through Jinja.

Not sure why this is number one but it is good value and basic B and B .limited menu and didn't find pizzas anything special .Service fine, cheery . No alcohol but don't mind you bringing your own. Popular with Young Americans and missionaries. Rooms fine and big but in need of some upkeep. Again if you need some good basic B and B in good position in Jinja this is the place.might suit families or large numbers .
Luxury, charm and better food and ambience are available in other B and Bs in town..

I have stayed regularly at Surjio's during my visits to Jinja and seen it expand over the years and become a very desirable place to stay in Jinja. The guests are always warmly received and the staff make your stay feel homely.
Surjio's is a lovely guest house. It is set in beautiful setting over looking Lake Victoria. The rooms are clean, comfortable and well furnished. The pool is clean and set in a relaxing atmosphere. The pizzas are delicious and there is a good choice of dishes from the menu.
I recently stayed here for ten nights and thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would certainly recommend to stay at Surjio's when visiting Jinja.

Room Tip: Rooms near the pool have good views overlooking the lake.

My husband and I stayed here with our team for the first time this week. It has been a wonderful experience. Surj was very prompt about replying to emails as we were making arrangements, and made the whole process very easy for us! It was a pleasure to interact with all the staff, and everyone was willing to be flexible as we went along (particularly with meal arrangements). The food was fabulous, but we found the pre-plated meals to be inadequate for our group(too big for some, too small for others, etc.). The meals served buffet style worked much better. Our team thoroughly enjoyed their time, and would definitely consider returning in the future!

Surjio's is a wonderful guest house. The setting is lovely. The property well maintained and up to date. The staff is knowledgeable, efficient, and friendly, making you feel welcome and at home. Surj himself was a good host. The food was superb-- excellent "real" pizza, the best Mexican I've had in Uganda. The service was timely. The pool was clean. The lawn manicured. I would recommend Surjio's Guest House wholeheartedly.
