When I was looking for somewhere to celebrate a special birthday there was only one place to go. Jinja and the Nile. And for me that means staying at Sunset Hotel (this was my third visit). Are there more luxurious hotels in town? Probably. But we like its slightly shabby look. Everything works, it's clean, comfortable and secure. It feels... More

I was part of a school group about 18 of us including staff. We were fairly spread out but that didn't matter. Beds were fantastic with mosquito nets covering all the duvet etc. Bathroom wasn't great with cracks in the bath and tiles dirty was very hard for any relaxing wash to occur. Views were superb overlooking Jinga and the... More

I spent a weekend there, when we first arrived they couldn't find our reservation although they sent us a confirmation email but the manager was nice and he was able to get me an executive room with a very nice Nile view. The room itself is OK, it's not luxurious but it's clean and the furniture is also ok..given the... More

Good welcoming staff who go beyond their confort to see that I was confortable especially when i was going to have a meal in their chinese restaurant. Though the food took averagely 30mins to get ready, it was worth the wait....the chef is ready to give you extra gravy if you ask for more. That was a plus. I would... More

We thought it would useful to do as many of the more mid budget hotels as possible in Jinja this trip and the Sunset was a pleasant if somewhat quirky surprise. They layout is, as been mentioned a bit colonial modern revamp gone wrong, but it’s not without its niceties. Unusually this hotel deals in US dollars, but does not... More

Sunset Hotel is a clean hotel and it is fine for just having a rest when working for a few days in the area of Jinja. Its central location is an advantage for guests. I stayed in the apparently new wing which is newer and has better view of the river. The rooms are equipped with air conditioning and a... More

Sunset Hotel is a good quiet place with a spectacular view of Lake Victoria. We visited Sunset Hotel in a group of 5 while on our way to the Mbale City that faces Mt Elgon. We were well received at this Hotel and sat at the restaurant that has a very spectacular view of Lake Victoria. All of us made... More

This hotel is tired, very oddly laid out and in need of repairs, just like it should be, this is Uganda! The atmosphere, staff and location however, make it a great place to stay. We had a wonderful time with a group of 20. The tiny bar is very unique and not to be missed.

We went to this hotel's restaurant for dinner on Saturday 10th November 2012. The service and food were both very poor. Despite having a large menu, when we ordered something they mostly did not have it. Sometimes they would wait one hour before coming back and saying they did not have it, with little in the way of an apology.... More
