Right up located at buziga hill, the view from the swimming pool is stunning. Cleanliness of the pool was ok. Service was ok. I saw only two one waiter and one pool attendent on busy day like Saturday. Therefore service was delayed. The waiter had to go long way to collect the drinks. I loved my pasta but my vegetarian...

Cassia Lodge Uganda is exactly what one would describe as "Heaven on a hill." The expansive view of the whole of Kampala is just magical and am happy with the service and friendliness of the staff. Keep up with the good work Cassia Lodge Family. This is exactly the place I want to be all the time.

To be fair we only stayed here one night (first night in Uganda). Nice and clean and safe. Breakfast buffet seemed fine. Great views. May have been able to give it a 4 star if we had stayed a bit longer.

I would like to thank the client for his positive review. Its a pity that he was unable to stay a bit longer. No doubt that he would have given Cassia four stars. Anyway we hope that our dear guest will come back one day to enjoy the "best view in Kampala'. More

“The best view of Kampala”, says the board, well, it’s not lying! Dusty, dirty and weary after a couple of weeks of traveling through Congo and Uganda, we were very happy indeed to discover this haven of tranquility and serenity on top of Buziga Hill. The beautiful panoramic view, the big swimming pool, the very friendly, warm & helpful staff... More

A lovely place to drive after a long flight and drive through Kampala's traffic. A warm welcome, good rooms, fabulous views from the terrace, a pool to wash off the days dust and a great restaurant offering a wide choice of delicious food. A good start to a Ugandan holiday!

Location Location Location.......stunning place with beautiful views just out of the hectic city of Kampala. A most popular first stop for visitors as it lies between the airport and the city, up in the hills overlooking the lake, out of the heat and mosquitos. Rooms are great and food is OK (nothing special but fresh and well cooked) but the... More

Beautiful location in Kampala. Calm, quiet and intimate hotel on top of Buziga Hill. Right off the noise and bustle of Kampala, yet close enough that you always have all the city amenities just minutes away, but the outskirts peace and idyll. The hotel has all the facilities normally, but there is still a mood that makes you feel like... More

In common with many travellers, we stopped here (7/14) prior to heading off on a journey around Uganda's main attractions. In our case, having just arrived on an overnight flight from Amsterdam, we found that it was an ideal place to spend the day as opposed to, say, venturing into Kampala. More specifically, the room was perfectly comfortable, the setting... More

We stayed at the lodge as a staging room upon late arrival in Uganda and before heading out on safari. Cassia met that need. The room was average (like a US motel). We only ate breakfast, or, tried to the next morning. It opened late and we only managed a rushed meal with limited options.

Cassia is the one of most popular hotels in kampala. My job brings me there from time to time, the view is breathing, food excellent and the rooms are very romantic, staff is very friendly. Only problem is that you need to fight for a room, most of the time is fully booked but once you are in there's no... More
