The hotel is very nice & with spectacular views but somewhat over priced. the rooms are very comfortable, the presentation of the food was good but not outstanding quality, and the wine list was severly lacking. For this price I expect more. it is also situated approx 60 minutes from the Parks HQ where the Gorilla Trekking starts from, so i would recommend staying there for relaxation after you have done all your trekking.
