I have stayed at Surjio's many times and would highly recommend it to anyone. I currently live in the area and visit Surjio's for their amazing pizza and fast wifi at lunch. The friendly staff always make it a pleasant experience!

Staying at Sujios was great as it ticked all the right boxes in making my trip to Jinja unforgettable. Firstly, the host Surjio was always so talkative and friendly which made my stay more comfortable and made me feel very relaxed. The guesthouse has a lovely pool, wonderful rooms, brilliant food and it was the perfect distance from any activities...

After weeks in Uganda staying in a number of guesthouses, it is safe to say that Surjio's has been by far the best experience. The rooms are clean and the service is excellent. The food is also good and the pool is lovely, catering for both kids and adults. Surjio will definitely look after you during your stay there.

Such a great place to stay! It has beautiful grounds and wonderful, friendly staff! I stayed for 9 nights and really enjoyed my stay. In addition to the pizza, the evening meals available for guests are delicious! I'm coming back in a couple months and will be staying here again.

A must stay in Jinja. Secure and relaxing location, clean and well tended, very friendly staff and great service. We stayed for 10 days with a mission team serving in Jinja and could not have been more satisified. Surjio's is well familiar with mission teams of all sizes and they go out of their way to see to the needs...

Surjio has built a beautiful retreat near Lake Victoria and the head of the Nile. Our room was very comfortable, and we enjoyed the tropical views from our second floor deck. On site is a separate meeting building where we shared meals and had break out sessions for the mission team that we served with. His breakfasts were super convenient,...

I highly recommend Surjio's apartments! We stayed there three weeks from mid May to early June. Because the apartment was so comfortable and clean, it was a home away from home and a great place to relax after a busy day. I remember first walking into the apartment and being blown away. The apartments are fully furnished with nice furniture...

We stayed here in June for 5 days. Wat a great place to stay in Jinja. Beautiful view over Lake Victoria, big and comfortable clean room, good beds, perfect working WIFI, the electricity is stable and the personnel is very friendly. Surj, the owner, is a man who understands hospitality. Every day he is around and talks with every guest....

I live in Kampala and so Jinja is a great getaway from Kampala since it is close. Surjios is great as it is very relaxing. There is a great pool, and the server's are really nice and accomadating. I would recommend Surjio's for groups, families, or individuals. The Pizza is also great!
