“Nice location but has a "seen better days" feel about it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012 via mobile

We were disappointed in our recent stay at Kingfisher lodge. The rooms need a bit of loving care- the pink plastic garbage can in the bathroom and grey sheets and Chinese blankets on the beds were a real eye sore. The dining room feels like a Nazi camp and the staff were listening to a tv at loud volume while we ate. We wondered why they do not serve in the lovely garden. The food was cold. We had to order lunch at breakfast time. Also the staffdonot speak much English we ordered porridge and got poached eggs. Still to be fair, the fact that we saw such amazing game in Queen Elizabeth park our 2 night stay here did not ruin our wonderful trip to Uganda

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2012

Our room was overlooking the ridge which had excellent views, just enough room to store all our things and a large bathroom with a good and hot shower. So this was we we expected, nothing more and nothing less. The pool also overlooks the ridge. During our stay we had buffet diners which were very poor, only the fruit and the soup were worth eating, most of the food was already cold and we were there when the buffet was ready. Our packed sandwiches for breakfast were very nice. I would recommend only to stay and not eat diner.
