Lovely, charming hotel and rooms however shady dealings. We arrived late in the night after having made reservations by phone during the day. Proprietor tried to claim miscommunication and increase price by 30%. She was not upfront and deceptive, urging us to unload our SUV and settle in before paying the undisclosed increased rate. After learning of the price increase we could not stay on good faith, we reloaded and stayed down the road at the Tourist, which isn't as nice but the staff is engaging, friendly and honest.

The hotel, built in a somewhat colonial style, has ten rooms and one suite at reasonable prices. The garden is home to many birds, and in the evenings, when it gets cooler, visitors can warm themselves at the fireplace in the lounge.In the restaurant every evening a fine 4 course dinner is served. "Gorillas in the Mist" researcher Dian Fossey stayed here many times, calling it her "second home". The hotels offers a massage-service, perfect after a long gorilla trekking. ... more less
