We stayed here for 3 nights. The food is plentiful with great buffets for all meals. The food is well prepared with stir frys and bbq options for people who like fresher options. The grounds are beautiful. The food, grounds, and location to the gorilla trekking exceeded our expectations. The rooms are large, but more of a two star in...

Despite the accommodation being booked and paid for more then 6 months before we arrived we were told on arrival that due to renovations our room was not available and we would have to go spend our first...

As with nearly everyone else who stays here, we were trekking to see the mountain gorillas. The staff here were really friendly, and the food was plentiful and good. As others have noted, it is cold at night, but the staff will light an open fire in your room, and put a hot-water bottle in your bed, so it really...

Very quick review on recent trip we did as a group of 8 friends to see the Gorillas and Golden Monkeys. I thought this was a perfect place as a central location to see the Gorillas - the Key thing here is that this place is very good Value and you get pretty much everything you need. This is not...

This lodge was really great except for the mattresses in our room which were very old and springy. I asked for another comforter to pad the bed. Otherwise the place was excellent. The room attendant knew right when to build a fire in the fireplace and was so appreciative of the tip I left. Most of the African food is...

& all that management could offer is that mice are part of their ecology; I suppose that means mice are rightful bed partners! We were disturbed all night, even flushed one down the toilet bowl! Until I showed them photos, their response was one of incredulity! Buyers beware.

I was invited to a wedding in Gisenyi about 1 hour away from Volcanoes national Park and though I knew I would be alone afterwards, I decided that since I'm traveling so far - I MUST trek to see the gorillas - who are protected in these mountains. I used a safari company from Hong Kong (where i live) and...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mountain Gorilla View Lodge. The grounds were gorgeous, our cottage was spacious, clean, and had a well appreciated fireplace, and the food was wonderful. The price of the lodge was also extremely reasonable when compared with the others in the immediate area. Our travel agent, ATR, suggested we stay at the budget Mountain Gorilla...

Stayed here with family before going to trek to see mountain gorillas. Our cabin was great, with a wood fire lit each night. Very comfy beds with a water bottle heating them up before you hop in in the cold night air. After the trek the staff meets you at the door where they give you slippers and you give...

Although we could not get our room the first night due to "construction issues," our stay was quite nice. The rooms had a lovely fireplace and hot water bottles were provided in the evenings for the cold nights (in July!). The buffet had a very good variety of choices. Nice gardens and views. There was free wifi in the lobby...
