The property is located on a hilltop with nice view of the Buganda king's lake, a haven for birds providing an ideal bird watching chance evening and morning. The rooms (we used the single storey cottages) were very clean and spacious which can be double or twin as per specification of the customer. We arrived Kampala at night and the... More

This is a very nice spot in Kampala close (5-10 min by boda-boda) to the city center. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff is very friendly. The food is pretty good too: there is a large breakfast with fruit, fresh juice, tea, bread and omelet; try the goat chunks, they are very good! The only downside is... More

Expect to pay 80,000 Ug sh. The pool was functioning and seemed to be properly maintained.. There were sun loungers round the pool and a pleasant... More

No hot water the first night and no water the next night. Restaurant has poor service and hotel staff don't communicate with each other on reservations. Light fixtures hanging loose and cracks in doors. But, maybe that's Africa. It compared to another place we stayed in another city.
