Cons: Location was a bit far from town and tricky to find - especially if you don’t have a car available.
Pros: A quiet and peaceful location away from the hustle and bustle. Lovely dining and seating area overlooking pretty gardens and countryside beyond. Interesting watching the waterbirds flying past in the evening. Very attentive staff cooked delicious meals to order, with salad stuff picked from the garden.
Cons: The menu was limited for non-meat eaters.
Pros: Clean rooms, basic breakfast, nice grounds.
Cons: Staff doesn't seem super well trained. They had trouble calculating payments (I tried to correct them and pay the right amount but he didn't listen and then realized his mistake and chased the car as we were about to pull out of the parking lot) and only takes cash but doesn't have any change in rwf or USD.
Pros: Beautiful gardens, immaculately clean rooms, friendly staff, delicious food
Pros: The staff were very friendly. The hotel was very clean and nicely decorated. We had dinner there in the evening which was nice and home-cooked. The breakfast was great. All very good value for money.
Cons: WiFi a bit patchy.
Pros: It's modern, neat, clean, comfortable and quiet. Not much more to add, just a very good place. Staff very helpful and some of their ingredients for what's on the menu are home grown in the garden.
Cons: a fan in the room would be nice, and payment by card wasn't possible at the time of writing.
