As an overseas consultant and frequent visitor to East Africa, I was delighted to discover this hotel. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable with fast Internet connection from room and poolside. Rooms have been tastefully refurbished and are spotless. All the mod cons you would expect from an up market hotel but half the price, TV, minibar, hair dryer and complementary laundry service! Hot and powerful shower, access to pool, gym, salon and tennis lessons (!) from the Kampala Club to which it is adjoined. Central and safe location - opposite the Sheraton. Staff are pleasant and professional. The hotel is small enough that it has a nice personal feel about it. Rooms have AC (though I didn't use mine). Better still, they have mosquito nets on all the windows so you can have the lights on and windows wide open if you prefer fresh air. Breakfast - cakes, fruits, eggs, toast, porridge ect is served in the pretty garden at the back. Full marks! Best value for money in Kampala.
