We arrived in Volcano after 7pm and to our surprise, all the restaurants were closed. After we checked in at Volcano Forest Inn, Victoria, the property manager, was kind enough to make us some delicious scrambled eggs and potatoes. We definitely felt at home and would come back again.
My wife and I stayed at the Volcano Forest Inn this February. The place is OK, but the managers/owners RIPPED US OFF by charging us twice for agreed upon fee!! OK, so billing accidents happen, but they have not returned any of our many phone calls or emails to try to resolved the double-charge. At this point, it seems to be a clear case of fraud. Our advice: DO NOT STAY THERE. THEY ARE CRIMINALS WHO WILL ROB YOU.
Four women of the 60's and 70's stayed one night after a helicopter tour over the volcanoes. Hosts were very friendly, the 2 rooms we stayed are very elegantly decorated and roomy. Breakfast was awesome. Too short of stay, never has opportunity to explore the forest behind the house, which makes us want to come back just to stay at Volcano Forest Inn.
We stayed here overnight as we travelled around Hawaii. Best guesthouse ever. Place was clean hospitality was fantastic. Room was amazing and breakfast was top class. Can’t fault this at all. Mahalo for making us feel so welcome
We stayed here for two nights. The place is in a lovely, forested location set in from the road. The room is clean and everything works OK, including wifi (unless modem is removed one night as happened when we there). Decor is depressing 1990's and the bed sheets were a cheap cotton or polyester that we sweated in with the plastic cover over the bed. BUT, service is pretty non-existent. We suspect that something has changed, maybe somebody looking after while the owner is away. But - when we arrived they did not check who we were and barely spoke to us subsequently. Walking into reception is like walking into a family lounge room with washing strewn everywhere. We were not told anything about breakfast (that we understood was supposed to include fruit as per their advertising), but saw a sign that said it was ready at 8 am. Sure enough when we went around there were muffins in a pan on the stove, but we had to sus out tea facilities. One day there were cold eggs and bacon on the table, but not a word from anyone! The washing machine was running all day and night and sent a god awful noise groaning through the place whenever the pump operated - all night! The fridge in the room was filthy, with rusty shelving and food stains all over it. The room was never refreshed or cleaned while we were there. We left as quick as we could given all of this, and you guessed it, with a perfunctory "you right now" from someone who we still never really met. A strange, strange way to run a B&B guys!…
