“Nice Property with Helpful Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

It's located outside of the downtown area and there really isn't anything to see or do within walking distance but the property and staff make up for the location and it's an easy taxi ride to downtown. A resort atmosphere with a nice pool, good restaurant, and a fenced in, secure property. We had a triple room which was very large and air conditioned. There is free wi-fi in the lobby and bar and the staff is very helpful.

Room Tip: The pool an be a bit noisy so request a room away from the pool.

Spent 5 days here. Check - in was a breeze, the room was adequate with a comfortable bed, very wide shower with a square head, I absolutely loved it! Also had generous cabinet space, and a table and chair, perfect for us writey types. Breakfast was a pleasant mix of local and western cuisine with the awesome pineapple as a staple. Be sure to confirm airport transfer though I had to make a plan after a mix up. Pleasant hotel, much more homely than some of the larger ones in town. Good location near Makerere University and a shopping mall with key amenities.

Room Tip: Ask for a room far from the road, can get noisy

We went here for lunch. We had 3 dishes off the Indian menu and i have to say it was much better tham anticipated. I have a new favourite place for Indian food.

The place also offers many other types of food including wood fire pizza but we didnt order this. There was a cinference on at the time and they were having a buffet lynch which looked very good.

The place has good grounds and includes a swimming pool.

Our waiter was super helpful and when we ordered a partucular dish he warned us that due to the type of cooking we should expect a wait. The wait was reasonable and the food very yummy.

If you are in the area or need a co ference venue the food is very good.

The porter at this hotel was actually so helpful he became painful at times! Great hotel, friendly staff, clean. Very nice restaurants and interesting traditional as well as continental food choices at buffets. Try the ground bean sauce served with everything!

I stayed here for a conference in March and the hotel and guest rooms were spotless. The grounds were beautifully manicured and staff seemed to be working around the clock to keep it that way! The pizza was delicious, as were the breakfast and lunch buffets. The air con was very welcome and the rooms and bathrooms were large and well equipped. I look forward to returning in August :)

As an organisation we have used this hotel situated in one of the Kampala suburbs called Bugolobi. It's great value for money. If new to Uganda you get to see the surbubs in Kampala. The rooms are clean and attractive. The conference services are good. It can be noisy on weekends or days when they host weddings.

A little overpriced but with excellent services. It's hard to find a hotel in Africa. Really good!
Just outside of Kampala, quiet, good food,..
Probably not 200$ a night worth, but if u book trough an agent you can get it for 100$.
