Beautiful grounds with many lovely flowers and right on the beautiful Lake Tana. Food is very good, including the breakfast buffet. Some of the rooms have older plumbing, but overall great hotel for the location. Hot water and semi-reliable Wifi.

Did not get a room with lake view though I made the most expensive booking. Staff handling it was a bit impatient and rude. After some argument/persuasion was changed to new room with l/view.

The property location is fantastic located by the lake with incredible views of the lake. The staff at the reception were very helpful and professional.
However the twin room we got was so small with very small single beds and hardly any room to move around for 2 people. The shower water was scalding hot and it took us 2 days to figure out how to moderate it. Also no WiFi in the rooms and very spotty throughout the hotel. Food also below average.

The hotel was maintained at the level of a mid-range hotel you would find in the US. The staff was very friendly and wanted to help as much as possible, but appeared to lack significant hospitality management experience, and were fairly reactive as opposed to proactive. The food was pretty good, and the views were great (if you could find a clean window to look out). There are a couple of newer hotels in the area, which I heard were nice (but same management challenges). There are also some more cultural hotels which were quite nice...HOWEVER, for the price you pay for Blue Nile, it is certainly worth considering in options if you are staying in that area.

Not worth twice the price
Clean yet dated hotel in a nice peaceful location on Lake Tana, but that’s where the 4 star experience ends. Definitely not worth twice the price of the other hotels in the area. Reception staff were rude, unhelpful and wouldn’t help with organising tours outside of those affiliated to the hotel, which were 4 times the price to those elsewhere. The WiFi was intermittent and essentially unusable and the TV didn’t work. We ended up spending our time at Kuriftu Resort which if they had rooms we would have stayed at.

This is a beautiful lakeside resort in Bahir Dar. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and modern. Rooms had air conditioning and warm water for showers. Food was pretty good, distinctly Ethiopian.

Location is everything and it has a great location right on Lake Tana. But the rooms are tired, worn out carpeting, no hot water for showers in the morning. Breakfast buffet was poor at best. On the bright side, the dinner was very good selection and tasty! For this price point,it was a disappointing stay.

Very comfortable and roomy bedroom with supeof lak
Excellent hotel overlooking lake Tana. Comfortable and spacious rooms. Food varied local and international. Sitting areas well appointed and beautiful gardens. Can take boat trips to local islands to see churches and history of battles between Ethiopian armies and colonial powers.

Good place to stay
Didn’t have any record of our booking for a second room, but more than made up for it by giving us a family suite instead. Good breakfast. Good location, but the poor design of the hotel doesn’t make the most of it. Small rooms
