For those who have been in South Sudan and stayed in endless prefab and container hotels at double the price this place is an oasis when returning to Uganda. It is a nice place to stay but clearly not within star ranges as normal hotel goes thus for the average tourist it would be roughing it out :-) For people in the humanitarian work ranks it would be considered a nice place. The staff is friendly and for food the indian kitchen is the way to go. Eating by the pool at night is a relaxing atmosphere. The rooms are ok with TV and fan but some of the houses can get a bit noisy when the neighbour or cleaners walk in the corridor. I guess the surroundings are so quiet you will notice such. It is a bit isolated from town thus once a driver drops you at the place, you are effectively stuck. But if needing a stopover in Arua then this is the place to be. Since there are not many rooms booking in advance is highly recommended.
