We stopped by the Jinja Nile Resort for a late lunch after a tour of Jinja. The service was pretty slow. We made our order at around 4 pm and ending up eating at 7 pm. To make matters worse, the waitress got one of our orders mixed up and brought something we hadn't ordered. The food was decent but... More

From the photos it looks great but the real thing was disappointing. It cost me $300 a day, the internet was very bad, so bad it was at times impossible to do anything with it and there is no internet in the common areas, only your room. The gym was almost a joke. They turn off the warm water daily... More

As a Ugandan and American couple living about 2 hours away in Mbale, we chose to have our wedding at Jinja Nile Resort in April 2014 and could not have been happier with our experience. James, the general manager was fantastic. We chose a location on the property that had never accommodated a wedding before, but James gave us exactly... More

The hotel sits high up above the Nile with beautiful views. Most of the rooms seem to be in cottages that spread out down from the main hotel. The rooms are comfortable enough, nice bed, shower, fan (no AC), small fridge and old TV. There is a nice pool and a complete gym. It seemed pretty empty when I was... More

I have been travelling to Uganda since the past 15 years and have visited this place a number of times and stayed there too. This time when I visited this place, we were there for lunch, the service was awful. We were 6 people. We ordered lunch at 2 o'clock and there was no sign of the food in spite... More

I was here for a meeting with a group of about 35. Our needs were well attended to. but we worked closely with staff that were quite responsive to our needs. Beautiful setting; Bungalows with double beds, a small sitting area and separate shower. opens out to a small balcony where one can sit and watch the sun set on... More

We had an annual meeting for the offices on the Africa continent here this past weekend. I'd estimate we had a little over 100 people, and it seemed the facilities were able to handle it. There were some bumpy things, but first I'll talk about the good stuff. As others have mentioned, the ground are very nice and kept up... More

If you are the type that loves a serene environment, this is the ideal place for you, on the edge of Lake Victoria, with a breathtaking view of the water. The rooms are spacious, calm with a beautiful ambiance. The swimming pool is clean and refreshing and I enjoyed a chicken tandoori which was yummy. Beware of monkeys especially the... More

We have been traveling in Uganda for the last 4 days and were excited to come here and relax at this "resort" for 2 days. Based on the price we were paying, $250 USD, we thought it would be around a 3-4 star. Boy were we surprised. The resort looks like it was built in the late 60's, has a... More
