We selected Lillian Towers because it is the only lodging we could find in Lira that offers air conditioning. This is the only reason that I would return to this hotel. The power is very unreliable in Lira and this hotel will only run their generator between the hours of 6pm and 11pm. This wasn't a problem during our stay... More

This place is very very very clean. We slept in the executive suite. It had AC, food was alright, staff very friendly, it's secure enough with enough parking, over all, could be the in the top 2 places to stay while in Lira. We had only knew Lira Hotel before but after asking around town, they directed us to Lillian.... More

I found the Hotel to be very clean and front desk helpful. There is security present that helped me feel safe (the hotel is near nightlife and clubs where the residents of Lira frequent). The front desk staff at night was very accommodating and breakfast in the morning refreshing. The bar on site carried all the local favorites such as... More

This place is very clean and we had a very spacious room with a balcony. The food is simple but good. The staff are helpful. This place is not a holiday location - but somewhere that gives everything that you really need. A good stop-off.

We spent one night here and were told not to have high standards. With that being known, we set the bar low. The hotel was friendly, gated, clean and had hot water and AC. So we were pleasantly surprised. The cost was around $70 USD for one night. Having decent restaurant with a bar was nice to have here too.... More

I have stayed here a few times. The place is clean and the staff friendly. The rooms are rather big, and have air conditioning; however, the electricity goes off in the night and stays off all night so there's no point in having them. The restaurant is good. They have a variety of dishes and the curries are quite delicious... More

I only stayed one night, but the accommodation was clean and functional. I had a good supper of tasty fish. The service was good. I was expecting to have a difficult time sleeping, due to an all night church meeting, complete with loud PA system, a few hundred metres away from the hotel. However, I had a very restful night...

I was lucky to get a room with AC, while my colleagues did not. Rooms were sparse but adequate; certainly nothing fancy. Bathrooms were small with stall showers. Internet access wasn't available while we were there. Beds have mosquito nets. Restaurant was convenient but food wasn't anything special. Free breakfast was good though; made-to-order omelettes were available.

Lillian Towers is frequented by Westerners doing work/traveling through the region. It is clean, has a/c & mosquito nets in the rooms, two computers for internet use (don't count on getting on however, it was down for the three days we were there). A great stay!

I was recently in Lira, Uganda on a business trip and stayed at Lillian Guest Towers, a sweet little hotel downtown. Rooms were clean and spacious. Hot, running water. Large bed with mosquito net. Decent internet access on computers in the lobby. Good service and pretty decent breakfast selection (eggs to order, fried potatoes, fruit).
