Everything about this place was perfect - the views, service, location. The views at this lodge is magnificent. Very relaxing, peaceful and serene. All your troubles just seem to disappear looking out into the lakes and volcanoes. Aside from the beautiful location, the staff really make the place. They were all very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The wake up calls with coffee by one of the staff is such a great personal touch. Your shoes are cleaned after gorilla trekking. Your bed is turned down every night while at dinner. I can't say enough great things about this lodge and the people who work here.
I hope that I will be lucky enough to stay here again in the near future.
