Stayed here for a night, and the rooms were neat and clean, except for a stain on one of my towels. The room was in good condition. Comfortable bed. The way their dstv works is that you tell them which channel you want and they will put it on. They were very prompt in getting whatever channels I asked for.... More

This hotel is a bit of a disaster. They charge european prices for ... Where do I start ? We arrived in late afternoon hot and sweaty. The shower had only cold water and several things in the room were absent or not working (no air conditioning, broken lamp and chair, tap missing in bathroom). Apparently we had to pray... More

We stayed here for a weekend with my family of Seven in May. Yes problems (or at least annoyance) are likely if you do not ask all questions before hand. As someone on the board advised I worked through all the questions (its a business so a bit fair to think they will want to extract money from you in... More

We stayed three nights during Christmas period and experienced no problems. The ambience of the rooms was appealing, the breakfast menus were scrumptious and the view of the Ruwenzori mountains was breathtaking in the mornings. We had a toddler of 2 years and we were provided with the appropriate arrangements. The overall service was excellent. The location is in vicintiy... More

We have stayed in other hotels/motels/B&Bs in Uganda where we paid MUCH less and had MUCH better quality of service. Firstly, a number of things promoted by the motel management did not work when we needed/wanted them (e.g. sauna, TV). We also felt very harassed by staff who continually asked if we were going to be eating in the (very... More

We had two nights in this very tidy place where gardens are in better condition than greens on golf courses. Our room was also very big with good bathroom and we slept very well. Manager and staff are also very friendly and helped us even book public travel on our wish. The best part for us was their sauna department.... More

Small hotel for 60 usd a night in a regular room, which are basic and clean. The only thing that I liked was the view of the mountains in the morning, from the room's balcony. Breakfast is too simple (fruit, toast, coffee/tea), if you want eggs you are charged extra. They also provide other range of rooms (90 usd) bigger... More
