This hotel is the standard chain hotel experience in Africa. The hotel was once the nicest location in Kampala has since deteriorated. The grounds and facilities are quite dated and it's obvious there's been years of wear and tear that hasn't been addressed. The rooms are adequate - clean with new sheets and mattresses and good sound proofing which made for a good nights rest. The real let down was the food. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and well stocked with a range of local ingredients and standard euro-fare breakfast items. Dinner was another matter entirely. Be care what you order on the menu as some items are just not worth it. The tandoori chick was lovely with nice spices but severely undercooked. Pizzas are a good size and quite tasty given the imported cheese. But stay clear of the deserts! Each one is just plain awful. Cakes were too dry and the cheesecake tasted like it was made from a package. Service is okay-sih and during peak hours can be very slow. All of these factors make the stay just an average business trip experience. If come back to Kampala I will certainly look for one of the smaller more personalized hotels.
