Hotel needs to improve in terms of room maintenance, gardens available could have been maintained in a better way. Staff somehow is friendly however could be more informative in terms of guest entitlements. It would be better to make the entrances more attractive currently it's looks very dull.

It is certainly not a 5 stars hotel... But the staff is great and always looking to please. I stayed there May 26 to 31. When I arrived there were no power and the hot water was barely dripping... The boss, Bill took me for a walk near the lake waiting for power to return. They fixed the shower the... More

This small hotel near the Speke Resort has got beautiful and very peaceful gardens. My room was basic, but good enough for me. And it was clean! The bathroom was big with a shower over the bath, but the shower could do with being wall or ceiling mounted as it kept falling down and the temperature varied from boiling to... More

I would have clicked the button between average and very good, but there was none, so I opted for the very good. A few years back we had a meeting and friends stay at the hotel for a few days. I visited again this month and decided to have just a meal. The air was filled with smoke from a... More

Although I would rate it a 3 star hotel, it was very nice to stay there, service was great, rooms clean, and food more than acceptable.Streets are bad around it as many in Kampala.It gave me a good impression.
