“Great place to stay!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Myself and about 30 other people stayed here on a mission trip, we stayed 7 nights.
Our rooms were clean when we arrived and the cleaning staff did a good job daily maintaining their clenliness, 1 afternoon i returned to find they had even folded my clothes after having hung them over the room to dry. Room was quite large with mini fridge, bathroom and balcony, no aircon in the 40 deg c heat.

We were here over new years and the hotel was holding a VERY loud new years party which at 2am we gave up trying to sleep and went and danced with the locals.

The staff at the front desk were friendly and speak english but they found it hard to understand my Australian accent resulting in having to carefully explain and repeat.
The daily breakfast included in our room rates was nice incl made to order omlets, waffles, sausages, bacon mushrooms and fresh fruit.
Our driver supplied by the hotel was a lovely man and joined in on a lot of the activities we were doing in the orphanages.
The only negative thing i could think of is we found most of the staff didn't use deoderant. This was back in 2008 though.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2011

The Ridar Hotel is a good mid-range hotel option north of Kampala on Jinja Road. The rooms are good sized and clean and the service staff was accommodating. The ground are very nice with a beautiful pool and a decent fitness club.

They have an excellent breakfast buffet (including made to order eggs) that was included in our room rate and our group loaded up every morning.

The hotel has wi-fi available for pay ($7 for 24 hours of use) but we discovered more often than not, it was not functional.
