This is the best venue for conferences/workshops. They have all the facilities in the Hall. I was here for 5days workshop. Rooms are extraordinary, beautiful and so comfortable. They have amazing big green gardens. The breakfast buffet is delicious with so much of options, lunch and dinner was fantastic too. The Olympic size pool is the best place to relax...

The pool is very big, the place is very relaxing. Spent 5days here, attended a meeting in one of their many Halls. The conference facilities are outstanding. The Breakfast buffet was delicious and so was Lunch buffet. We had BBQ dinner one evening in the Garden near Lake, what a spectacular view. Will definitely come back soon

Speke Resort is like a western oasis crammed into the chaotic squalor that is most of Kampala. The place is clean and calm, security is good, and the staff are solicitous. The rooms are comfortable, but not luxurious, and the breakfast buffet was excellent. If you MUST go to Kampala, I recommend this fine property.

We spent three nights at this massive resort and enjoyed every minute. The staff were very professional and attentive and the rooms were large and comfortable. The morning breakfast at the hotel's restaurant was delicious, very scenic, and relaxing. I recommend a stay here.
