First time in Kampala - just as an aside - it is quite a long way from EBB, Entebbe airport; approx an hour and a half including some traffic which is common on approach to the city. Efficient check-in. Very nice reception area, with coffee/tea bar and nice patisserie, plus little gift shops. Anthony on Reception very friendly and nice. In refurbished room, which ok. Bathroom very small and although also possibly refurbished, also show signs of neglect, but it's ok. No soap provided but that might ave been an oversight.... however, when entering my room, there was a hotel staff member already in it, which was a bit strange.... but perhaps he was just leaving some of the numerous bottles of water I found provided f.o.c. in the room. Empty fridge which I personally always find useful. Rooms seem clean and tidy, and the corridors are very swish/ornate - it's all obviously been done up quite recently. Nice areas outside for outdoor eating with attentive, friendly staff. Set in attractive, landscaped grounds with views over the city. Ate in the cafe lounge restaurant by Reception area which was pleasant and well-patronised. Food does not always quite match the menu (as my colleague noted who has stayed here several times thus year) but my tilapia fish was good. Nice selection of coffees and teas, which came with delicious homemade shortbread biscuits (cookies). Free wifi throughout, the reception was better however in the rooms than in the Lobby, which is unusual! Overall, a nice stay, but bathroom size might be an issue with some.
