Good hotel. It can go far of they het themselves organized to identify good staff from the lazy ones. Some of them are very dedicated and try their best; some are extremely lazy and unaware of their responsibilities. Breakfast was quite good with various options. Rooms are spacious and well equipped. It is the irresponsibility of some staff results in... More

Was there in July for a friends wedding reception but the food was plain, not much to write about. The staff are helpful though. The rooms are spacious and clean enough, so that is a plus. The hotel is close to Centenary park, which has several bars, so if you like your night sleep, that will be abit difficult. The... More

Our biggest disappointment was that the pool was under renovation! We were there for my husband's business so didn't pick this hotel. We were very surprised by the contrast in pricing if you book from a site like booking.com etc vs the hotel site. My sister was traveling with us & she booked her own room online while we were...

Superb Hotel situated at the centre of the Kampala city with excellent view and a good place to relax. I have attended a lot of workshops here and I wonder how they handle these big events because the place is ever busy with meetings and conferences. The halls are clean and neatly arranged and the staff are ready to guide... More

Renovations again! This seems to be something one simply cannot escape. Knocking and drilling throughout the day is followed by the hotel's night life during the evening. This is not a quiet business trip. The conference facilities were fair. Nothing to rave about. Lunch was average - worth noting is that you will only be offered one piece of chicken... More

Staying overnight for a business trip I didn't expect too much and received exactly that. The rooms sizes are adequate and there are ACs on the wall. Unfortunately the AC didn't work and the shower unit was the same. The room was musty and in the draws there were bedsheets and a bed cover "used". Dinner was well over an... More

All, if like myself you are choosing this hotel becuase it is a reasonable price and it hs a pool - DON'T! Over all, the hotel is OK. Service was incredibly slow - but hey, thats Africa - the rooms are a good size and its oly a mile or so outside of town. Its also right next to the... More

Great location in the heart of Kampala - very friendly staff especially those on the front door who remembered us every time we came and went. Bedrooms are a good size and very comfortable - bathroom fittings are showing their age but worked just fine. Breakfast was excellent - dinner menu was rather limited but quality was good. Front desk... More
