Wow a lovely little gem of a place! Travelled from Mukono district from very basic accommodation so this was very welcomed. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was right opposite the pool in a beautiful tropical setting. Straight on a sun lounger with our welcome drink ‘of your choice’, just lovely. Rooms were spacious, clean with large, comfortable beds. Bathrooms were also spacious ( hot shower!) 🙏 painted in giraffe design. All staff just lovely! Good food. Breakfast was a large selection of everything you could want. A good location for the Nile. Loved our stay here, would love to have stayed longer if not just passing through. 😃💕

Lovely guest house set in very pleasant, tropical feeling grounds with a nice bar area and pool. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the beds were great. Food was very good and there was plenty of variety for dinner and breakfast. We were travelling as a group and the hotel made sure we had a private area for our celebration dinner which was a nice touch. The staff were kind, friendly and approachable. The only downside was that we did have some problems with hot water for the showers but otherwise it was a lovely stay.

We stayed there at the start of our 3-week, trip to East Africa and it was a pleasant experience. The facilities were adequate and the food in the restaurant adjoining the property was pretty decent as well.

We arrived late on a saturday evening and made our way to this hotel that we had reserved. Check in was quick and we were led to our room by a very helpful front desk attendant. The room was large, clean, and fantastic. The bed was very comfortable for us as well. Back to the office for a few questions and we ended up leaving with a few excursions booked thanks once again to the lovely lady that checked us in only a few minutes earlier. We had a great dinner at the onsite restaurant and then a fantastic breakfast the follwong morning that was included in the price of the room. choices of coffee, tea, chocolate, and a few other drinks. Several other real breakfast selections made us want to stay here again. Thanks for the hospitality and if you happen to find my favorite pen, I think that it fell under the table in the room, hang on to it for me. :)
