Clean rooms, enough room for those who prefer to travel large...the breakfast is the best part, they offer a variety of options to pick from. Their WiFi also needs some work and the TV sets are so outdated and only offer a limited number of channels.

Thank you very much for your review and we apologize for delaying to respond. We have taken note of your commendation of Julius and we are pleased that he handled your stay professionally.On the breakfast issue, we will consider making some changes to suit increasing customer requests. However, you may have noticed that apart from the fruits, fresh juice, cornflakes, different types of bread(selection of brown or white, sweet or salty), a choice of eggs, tea, coffee, hot chocolate and 1 hot dish (all on the buffet), you have a possibility of ordering from the menu bacon and sausages at a small additional charge. Perhaps our staff may have forgotten to display the menu for extras on the table. We appreciate your patronage and would wish to host you again when you are next in Kampala.
