Decent place right by the lake
Staff was friendly. Facilities are decent. Pretty good breakfast. Place doesnt need major upgrades but rather some minor tweaks here and there.

The staffers are excellent. The spa is coming soon and a massage will be very welcome. There needs to be a restroom on the first floor for customer convenience. The Lake Kivu garden is amazing, I wish there were more activities to occupy my curiosities, and more furniture to enjoy the garden. Really, the customer service, care and hospitality were the best! I wish there was more creativity on the buffet although it met my needs. I will hold you to the offer of the coupon off and I'm looking for my reimbursement due to emergency early check out. Thank you Mr. Wagula and staff. VMc

Mysigt hotell med närhet till centrum
Härligt ställe att bo på. Lite lyhört från korridoren. God mat i restaurangen och frukosten var helt okej! Utsikten från rummet på bottenvåningen är över den mysiga trädgården med pool. Runt hörnet ligger stranden där det går bra att bada och göra båtutflykter. Andra restauranger ligger en kort promenad bort.
