The hotel is expansive. The grounds are spectacular and very well cared for. There is a significant amount of time paid to aesthetics and landscaping. The hotel rooms I stayed in were clean though the bed is spring-box and not super comfortable for a place called a resort. AC noise is a little higher than one would like. Complementary bottled...

What a beautiful place to stay, it has every bit that we can expect or fantasize. The service are outstanding, food is delicious from breakfast to dinner. The rooms are beautiful including the toilet which is as big as a room. Most of the time the weather is pleasant in Kampala to dine out at the lake terrace. I must... More

Comment: Its a great place to be, totally professional, friendly and you feel at home. I would rather stay and be lazy all day long in hotel rather than going out too much. The personal touch is worth mentioning.

I was disappointed by the fact that there was no wifi in the room, he lan cable only goes into computers and not to ipads/tabs/cellphones. The menu variety was not all that. basic things such as shower caps were not available during my stay. Also,... More
