As already noted the Oxford is in the middle of Mbarara, right on the main road. We were there on a Saturday night just before Christmas with heavy traffic rumbling through all night and many people partying through 'till dawn. We slept badly.
There is Wi-Fi but it is unreliable: when we asked to use it they had to find their technical wizz-kid to kick it into action. By morning it was dead again - someone had turned it off so the wizz-kid had to be found to switch it on again.
Bed was comfortable, shower worked, breakfast just passable, but if passing through Mbarara again I would certainly try somewhere else.
On the question of security we were lucky - nothing stolen. However, I noticed that the plastic card I was given to operate my door lock was labelled "Master Key", which makes me think that security is pretty sloppy at the Oxford.
