And the staff was just courteous and polite. They were professional and helpful. They even guided us to the different places, told us the best places for meals and the...

Nice little place in Gondar. Central and easy to find your bearings. The evening meals if ordered is simple but the breakfast is absolutely sumptuous. The honey that is served is so good that I bought a bottle from the reception. Also breakfast is served with a smile having the morning sun warming you. ITS HEAVEN. The staff are so...

The staff at the Lodge du Chateau were welcoming and helpful, greatly enhancing our visit to Gondar. A very good breakfast is served on the terrace, which has nice views of the town and surrounding hills. Having peanut butter was a welcome treat for this American. WiFi is available in the common areas. As in much of the country, internet...

I wish more places were like this. Lodge du Chateau is not luxury but it is pure comfort and relaxation. It's simple, clean and cozy with an extremely helpful team. Simon went above and beyond what is expected to find us accommodation in Lalibela over Christmas. Wifi is far from perfect but I have yet to find any place outside...

This quaint centrally located hotel had the friendliest staff we have encountered so far. Simon the manager personally picked us up from the airport. We were given a map of town and great recommendations for activities and restaurants. They even negotiated a tuk tuk driver to take us to the more distant sites and wait for us. The rooms are...

We just loved staying here, as it felt like a little haven away from the busy road. Simon is a most professional, kind and attentive host. The staff members are well trained, helpful and so friendly. Just loved the dining room with the view. Dinner and breakfast excellent. Would recommend this venue any time.

We loved our two nights at Lodge du Chateau! The garden courtyard and terrace dining room make it feel like a little secluded paradise in the middle of Gonder. The rooms are simple but very comfortable and charming, the breakfasts are very nice (they had some gluten-free teff-based options for my wife, who has celiac), the location is excellent, and...

This is in a great location near the royal enclosure with some good quality restaurants nearby. The staff were very helpful. We organised a 4 day trek through the Simien mountains with the lodge and they stored our luggage while we were on the trek. There was a standard breakfast of egg, toast and fruit. The room was comfortable and...

Had an amazing time here at the Lodge du Chateau. The rooms were clean and very well maintained. The staff was absolutely incredible. If for only that reason you should stay here. They went out of their way to make our stay and time in Gonder great. They even helped us find places and were willing to walk us there...
