My daughter and I arrived at the Nyungwe Top View Hill Hotel after our driver mistakenly dropped us off first at the Nyungwe Forest Lodge (which is gorgeous!). Our initial reaction was to be disappointed, BUT we had a wonderful time at the Top View Hill hotel! The staff was attentive and kind, the food was very nice (we particularly...

We went to this lodge because of the recommendation given in the Bradt travel guide, which described it as "well-managed addition to Nyungwe’s hostelries which bridges the price & quality gap between the plush Nyungwe Forest Lodge & the budget options listed on (Click here)". This lodge is not well managed, and it is totally overpriced. Except for the receptionist,...

We do not know how to explain how upset we are about the price and what's delivered at the Nyungwe Top View Lodge. The place pretends to be special but it is absolutely NOT. Architects have designed (badly) build houses in a row with limited views. Considering the place is located on a hill top, the view from our room...

We stayed 1 night in this gorgeous hotel. The views and the venue are superb. The Staff is sweet but generally seem newly trained and quickly uncomfortable if you ask too many questions. The interiors are beautiful. Having said this, these are my comments: - 2 very long power cuts meant we were unable to take hot showers or do...

Spent to nights October 8-9,2016. Do not get disheartened by the entrance or road leading up to the lodge. The accomodation is beautiful. Staff was so attentive and kind. Nothing appears to be to much trouble. It would be great if they could get coffee making facilities in the rooms. Water pressure in the rooms are a bit of an...

As we came up to the hotel it looked closed - the entrance has probably never been finished when they build the place so it looks worn out. But as you get in to the reception area it looks much better. There are beautiful views from the hotel over the area. The rooms are nice and spacious - a bit...

Having been bumped of Gisakura Guesthouse at the last minute, we were transferred to Hill Top. Staff were welcoming and provided first class service. The units were spacious and of a high standard, with en suite bathrooms, a sitting room and a veranda. The food was very good, with adequate choice and variation over four nights. The situation was outstanding...

We were in Uganda-Congo-Rwanda for three weeks and spent our last night at Top View Hill Hotel. We wound up wishing we had several more. The room was beautiful--a full suite with a balcony overlooking the forest. The setting is gorgeous and the staff very nice and helpful. We had an excellent dinner at the restaurant and a really good...

Warm welcome, very friendly staff, exceptional view. Accomodation is a little old, but largely compensated for by the amazingly friendly and dedicated staff. We had a few little problems, but immediately taken care of by the hotel manager in person. The waiters are very funny en discrete. Daily a tasteful buffet for both lunch and diner. Highly recommended.
