We stayed in one of the cabins close to the main lodge. It was very spacious, with a big comfortable bed, a large bathroom with a unique shower & lots of hot water, plus a sitting area in front of a fireplace which the staff lit every night. They also placed one or two hot water bottles in the bed...

We just returned from this lodge after a lovely stay. The lodge is basic but has everything you need. The staff is extremely kind and willing to help out in any way they can. The main lodge is spacious and the rooms are in little cabins away from the main lodge. The rooms are basic, but with everything you need....

Stayed two nights foe gorilla trekking. Everything you need, comfortable unit, breakfast, lunch and dinner included, food was enjoyable, service prompt, friendly atmosphere. Meeting like minded guests from around the world and chatting about the gorillas and other safaris around the lounge fire made the experience even more special.

The location provides a beautiful scenery from every angle of this lodge, the gardens and some cottages looking at the volcanos. We had cottage number 3, which is very well located quite close to the main building, and has a stunning view. It was very well sized with a fire place, two single sofas and a small table on the...

The actual Gorilla trek was very good. The accommodation at the Mountain Gorilla View Lodge was not good. The surrounding area is quite impressive but the accommodation was definitely not. The rooms that we had left much to be desired. There were holes in the floor of our bedroom and living area. They had placed rugs to cover the holes...

A huge place compared to the small scale accommodation we visited before, but still very agreeable. Nice cottage with beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. It can get quite cold at night, but they do light a fire in the cottage every night. Food ok, not special but that was probably due to the fact we had buffet included.
