Our guest reviews

“Beautiful Mountain location at a walking distance from the Rwenzori N.P entrance, gorgeous views from the cabin and restaurant. Helpful staff, delicious food, excellent breakfast. Big room, proper solid mattress. Good thing there is no wifi. This is a peaceful place to disconnect and forget the worries of the world! Enjoy nature; fall asleep to the sound of the roaring river, wake up to birds singing… perfect.”  – Liisa Finland 

 

“The location was excellent, being just a short walk from the park entrance, and the facilities were spotlessly clean, with amazing views from my room and the terraces. The staff provided an excellent service, being very friendly, accommodating and the food was delicious. I was particularly impressed given that I was the first visitor after the lockdown was eased and arrived at short notice. They made a big effort to ensure everything was in place and made me feel very safe as I could see that the coronavirus guidelines were being followed carefully.” – Katharine – United Kingdom
