I've stayed here several times whilst on assignment. It's quiet and facilities clean. The meals are also good. However front office/ reception staff need to be more proactive and look motivated. The rooms facing the golf course are better and quieter. The facility is also located next to Garden City mall hence very convenient as forex bereaus banks supermarkets are... More

The hotel is facing the Golf Course and is amidst lovely green surroundings.The rooms are very spacious and so also are the bathrooms. Wi-fi is slow though. The restaurant on the ground floor faces the Golf Course and gives a very tranquil ambiance.The room charges are a bit on the higher side. Overall experience had been good.

The check in was inefficient... If you know you have a lot of check ins late at night, at last have the staff on duty to handle the guests. The rooms were large, which is great. The stains on the carpets and the furniture looked. Like bodily fluids... I would not sit on the furniture. The towels in the bathroom... More

good hotel, if you are staying for a brief period, that too in central location, next to malls and offices. Rest of the amenities are just okey. The rooms are relatively large, beds are big with old furniture. The cleanliness is fine. The rooms facing the Golf-course give you great view in the morning & evenings. Rest is fine, but... More

This hotel is in Kampala. The place is very decent with clean rooms and a decent ambience. They have swimming pool, spa and gym facilities too. Staff are efficient. For business travelers it's a good place to stay. They have good wi Fi connection.

A very good hotel. Right in the center of this "crazy" city is this nice a cooling hotel with pleasant atmosphere. The Mexican restaurant on the second floor is great, although service is awful as everywhere in Uganda. In short, i recommend. By the way, there's a casino right next door.

I stayed twice in this hotel. The rooms facing golf course provide the best view and the lush greenery adds a bit of feel-good-factor. The furniture looks pretty old and the service in the front office is a bit challenging at times - especially when you are in a hurry to leave & catch a flight. I personally feel this... More

This is a business trip for a non-profit organization so I am used to average hotel accommodation. However, when I arrived at the hotel and got inside my room, I realized it was an above average hotel. My room is very spacious, with a walk-in closet, and big bathroom. The bathroom comes with 2 sinks, a bathtub and a shower... More

My advice is to book early for Kampala to avoid the disappointment of ending up at this place. It is dated, tired and the staff are lacklustre in their approach to a problem. I was visiting with a trade delegation and three of us had to be located at this hotel for a night. When we arrived we were told... More

Considering the hotel's location in downtown Kampala, it's probably one of the better hotels in the area. The staff are very friendly and its position next to the golf course is lovely with great views from the restaurants and bars and some of the rooms. However, I had a street facing room so didn't get to enjoy the lovely view... More
