Right from the beginning we had the warmest welcome from Johan, Els and the friendly staff. The Lodge has a warm and relaxing atmosphere and the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Cassia Lodge has a breathtaking view over Kampala and Lake Victoria which you can enjoy from the pool, the restaurant and from your room. We will certainly return... More

Second visit at Cassia Lodge, this time stayed longer and i was not exhausted to the point of death when checking in so i noticed more that they missed the small things. This hotel was 165 Us Dollars a night so not cheap. At this price, they can do better. 1. The TV seemed to be controlled from reception or... More

I would like to thank our dear customer for appreciating the view to die for, the fast internet, the amazing pool, the excellent staff, the very clean rooms (quote). Sorry for the few small things that were not appreciated by the client. Yes indeed, there is no buffet breakfast when we only have a few people in the rooms. Maybe... More

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

Thanks dear client for spending a night at Cassia. And for appreciating the magnificient view of Kampala and the lake, the pleasant property, the nice garden etc. (quote) Allow me to say that one night was maybe a bit short to observe the ongoing process of renovation. July/ August is a busy period and you can't work in a room... 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.
