I've lived in Uganda for quite some time now and unless you want to stay in a 5-star $200+/night safari lodge, you aren't going to get any better than this. The rooms are clean. The showers have water pressure and hot water. The food is better than most at a reasonable price. I really enjoyed my stay and highly recommend it as an alternatively to the expensive safari lodges.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Travellers' Rest is an excellent place for tourists visiting the endangered mountain gorilla in Southwest Uganda. The hotel, built in a somewhat colonial style, has ten rooms and one suite at reasonable prices. The garden is home to many birds, and in the evenings, when it gets cooler, visitors can warm themselves at the fireplace in the lounge.In the restaurant every evening a fine 4 course dinner is served. "Gorillas in the Mist" researcher Dian Fossey stayed here many times, calling it her "second home". The hotels offers a massage-service, perfect after a long gorilla trekking. ... more less
