In line with my work for pick ups and drop offs in Kampala and Entebbe Airport, most of the time I interact with my clients I pick from these hotels/lodges and always give me their impressions when still fresh. It's stuff...

Peaceful location on the outskirts of Kampala. The rooms are adequate and clean and the food is reasonable. The swimming pool is the best I saw in 3 weeks in Uganda; a reasonable size and nice clear water! There are lovely views of Kampala and Lake Victoria. It would have been nice to eat outside on the balcony, but we...

The location is beautiful with the balcony offering an expansive view. I enjoyed sipping on my drink while starring at the beauty of lake Victoria away from all the chaos of Kampala city. The service was good.It is a place to sit back and relax.

Great hotel! The staff is very friendly and very helpful. The view is magnificent, the best view over Lake Victoria. The rooms are clean and spacious. The food in the restaurant is very good and they serve good quality wine, which is not self-evident in Africa, but here they do. I most certainly will come back here!

We stayed in the Cassialodge as part of a trip and it was a good startingpoint. When I had medical problems, the manager and staff helped us with a good doctor, medicine and information of the surroundings and possebilities for us. The view is magnificent . The hotel has a nice garden and a clean swimmingpool.
