We had a lovely wedding hosted here and so spent the night here. The hotel is located in a spacious property right on the river Nile with lush gardens. Food was great, rooms were neat and clean and staff were very helpful. Waking up to the site of the new Nile bridge and the river Nile was a highlight. Make sure to get rooms with a nile view.

The rooms were very clean and the staff were so warm and helpful. I liked the soft pillows and that we had a variety to choose from at breakfast. The proprietor was also around to make us feel welcome and at home. Well done- we shall definitely be back

The rooms are nice and big, the grounds are very nice with a view of the Nile. The staff is very nice and helpful. The food is ok, need more fruit like mango. Needs a gym and a nicer restaurant space. Jinja is a very pleasant town.

Nice staff and overall kindness in service, but this hotel has no interest except in case of a conference or an emergency with no other accomodation. internet is a disaster, don't expect sending a simple email.The buffet food was ok .
