Golf Hills Residence
Ranked #17 of 51 Hotels in Kigali
Reviewed 5 February 2014

In reading reviews, decided to check in at Golf Hills Residence, on a previous travel in Rwanda, did stay in a hotel were the price was around Usd 150
In the contacts made avec Golf Hill Manager, she told me about a price of USD 80 up to 100, just to make some saving did check there was not expecting so much at USD 80.
At my surprise, I was offered a pick up at the airport. Golf Hill is not an hotel but a friendly Guest House. People are so friendly, rooms are very clean and I was surprised by the morning breakfeast. They made my day, when I did ask the possibility to have african menu, not on their menu, the manager, order special menu for me, every thing was done to make my stay confortable.
My greetings to all staff, particularly to the owner Mme Mimi, always there to supervise if everything is well done. Check at Golf Hill if you are looking for a family and clean environment and mostly if you want to make some savings on your trip.
What is missing, pool and fitness center.

Room Tip: I will advise the rooms in Golf Hill no two, rooms are larger and plenty of space at the balcony

Should not market itself as a hotel. More a guest house. I picked it based on trip advisor reviews. Clearly we stayed at different places.

The food was nothing to write home about. Really crappy breakfast selection. Steaks not done well. Juices were not fresh - more concentrated artificial juice. It was so disappointing.

The rooms are spacious and large. No view over a golf course - I was on the top most floor with the room facing right over the road. You glimpse the golf course, not view it's sprawling nature. Very good and relatively clean bathroom.

Wi-fi connection that was up and down. The place is just ok. Nothing extraordinary about it.

We stayed here for one night in December, and we chose it based purely on the feedback on Tripadvisor.

The staff were wonderful, the food was great, the beer was ice cold and the rooms were beautiful and comfortable. Waking up to the view outside was simply the icing on the cake!

We stayed with our six month old baby and he was excellently catered for.

Don't bother with the big expensive hotels in Kigali, this place offers a genuinely warm welcome and it felt like home after one day. We will undoubtedly be staying here again next time we are in Rwanda.

This place was wonderful. Clean, comfortable, and cozy. The staff was attentive and friendly. Everyone spoke English well. Hot water in room was a bonus. Great food! The coconut shrimp was delicious and the chef came out to meet us and make sure it was good. The restaurant is clean but the atmosphere is a bit-- awkward and quiet ... Not romantic. The landscape is clean and beautiful. The only downside was that it was a little noisy as the rooms are close together. It was perfect otherwise and we will stay again!

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel on our honeymoon and had a very nice time.
The rooms are very clean and spacious. Breakfast was just great and the drinks we had at the bar very nice. We did not have dinner.
The hotel is very well accessible from the airport and to get around in Kigali.
The staff was wonderful and all our wishes were fulfilled – THANK YOU ALL
The Manager, Antoinette, was a great help in getting our suitcases (which have been left in Nairobi). She also organized Taxi and it was great chitchatting with her and getting to know more about Rwanda, the culture and the people.
One suggestion form our side: with some nice Rwandese souvenirs the rooms could be made a bit more cosy :-)

Our stay at Golf Hills was organized by our tour and was the our first stop and last stop of our tour in Rwanda. It is clean, comfortable and staff is helpful and friendly. Food was very good. After a week of touring the country, it was like coming home.
