I stayed at the Cassia Lodge for one night as part of a trip to Uganda and Rwanda. The lodge is on a hill, with a magnificent view of Kampala and the Lake. The property is pleasant, with a nice garden. However, it shows that it is oldish and that it has not been renovated / refreshed for some time.... More

Great place for a drink or a meal with stunning views and a cooling breeze. Food is decent but pricey - you pay for the view: and what a view. Just round the corner from New Madagascar Hotel and Buziga Country Resort.

You won't regret coming here for afternoon tea with a group of friends. Sit out on the deck and enjoy the view! Service was excellent and it is such a peaceful environment. Their brunch buffet is great and their passion fruit juice is incredible!!!

This was a relaxing place to recover from jet lag and begin our travels through Uganda. We had a lovely dinner outdoors, under the stars with a view of Murchison Bay. The room was comfortable. This is a great place to stay when in Kampala.

We only stayed one night at this hotel it is not one that is memorable but passable. Not sure why it's called a lodge. Reception welcome was luke warm, room was dismal and had poor lighting. Restaurant so dark I had to go outside to read menu and meal was bland. Wouldn't return.

Staying 6 weeks in Uganda this time with a teenager. Went to Speke Resort to swim first, but that was way too expensive! Cassia lodge is a very good alternative and much cheaper. Staff at pool is very friendly. Serving of drinks/food at the pool could improve though. Had to go to the reception desk myself, after 3 hours, to... More

We started our trip in Uganda with Prime Safaris at this lodge after arriving in entebbe. The views are lovely and the restaurant was great. Rooms are comfortable and perfect if looking for a hotel away from the busy city. The hotel is a little older looking but clean.

We chose this hotel as bookended rest days before and after a hectic 2 week tour of the main Ugandan national parks. Cassia is not the easiest of overnight accommodations to access when you fly into Entebbe but its commanding position just south of Kampala, overlooking Lake Victoria, is a memorable stopover. Not only are you then on the outskirts... More

My clients and I had planned to stay in Kampala three nights and finally we stayed more because of the view and the atmosphere. The place was so relaxing, the service very friendly and kind and the room was excellent, plus perfectly clean. The bathroom was basic but perfectly fine for us. All the windows had mosquito net which allow... More
