Beautiful, clean, traditional style rooms and authentic with well preserved hardwood floors in the rooms. Balconies overlooking the Nile and Lake Victoria Bay. Gray Parrots living in one of the beautiful compound trees. Delicious food. Service vastly improved Looks like a great place for families and groups!
I stayed here after a three day stay where I got very little sleep because of my hotel's proximity to a very noisy road, this place was the perfect antidote. As suggested in the description, a traditional colonial house, very comfortable, hardwood floors, ceiling fans and a beautiful bird filled garden with a pool. I could not have asked for more, the staff were very friendly, the food was okay, the menu needs a bit of a refresh and a bit of imagination. The views and bird life (and the fruit bats) more than made up for the average food, a ten minute walk from Jinja, worth considering if that's important.
The pizza was great but oh my goodness, the services was so terrible!!!! The guy Ivan who was serving us dragged his feet, didn’t want to answer questions. He couldn’t even get the chef to make plain chips. Told us whatever is on the menu is fixed! Like if you can make cheese chips why can’t you hold the cheese and make plain chips???? 🤮🤮😳😳😳🙄🙄🙄😑😑😑 the last straw was the owner coming and telling me 5 minutes before closing that alert close at 9.30pm. I’m like it’s 9.25pm. His response was like I can’t order anything else because in 5 minutes we are closing. Basically we were chased from the premises because they were closing in 5 minutes!!!! Such bad service and hospitality!!!! You can’t even be glad you have one vision in your premise! Thumbs down!!! 👎👎👎👎👎 bye! Last time I ever show up here!!!…
Another member of our group made our reservations here. The hotel and restaurant did not disappoint. Our room was spacious and clean and had a great view overlooking the lake. Comfy mattresses are difficult to find at most guest houses but ours was fine. We were also impressed with the pizza. (can't beat fresh pineapple on a Hawaiian pizza). Breakfast was good also. It was made to order and didn't take long. We had been on the road for several hours so what I appreciated the most was not having to go out and look for dinner. The only downside was the wifi didn't work well in our room but worked fine elsewhere.
