“Good stay with plenty of hot water”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Comfortable large room. Plenty of hot water. Fast same day repair of a plumbing issue. Good good. Beautiful gardens.

After a week in small villages with no plumbing this was a welcome oasis.

Attentive management and staff.

This is a hotel that is not achieving its potential, we arrived on New Years Eve and were advised that there was going to be a party for an oil company whose staff had just finished a contract and to be honest we felt we were an inconvenience to them.
The food was not good at all and for the first time in over 40 years of marriage we went to bed before seeing the new year in.
The grounds are lovely and the rooms are reasonable.

At a first glance we were positive about the surroundings of the hotel: nice gardens and a swimming pool in quiet surroundings. However the service and the food are disgusting! We waited almost two hours for food and it was of an extremely poor quality. Rooms are very basic but clean. We were happy that we could leave this place. Recommendations for the manager: train the staff, improve the food and renovate the rooms as this place has possibilities!

traveling from kibale forest to murchisons falls we had a stop for one night at kontiki. arriving the premises looks great, a nice garden, a swimming pool. the first disappointment was the lunch, after the order. it tooks almost 2 hours before we got our meal. the staff is very lousy. the cottage are clean, but very out-dated. they need to be renovated. by example their was not a hook for the shower. The dinner was also a disappointment, we were discussing which food to take and not to get ill. this time the food was served a little bit faster, in about 1,5 hour. the food was disgusting and poorly prepared.

Like most other guests, we stayed at the Kontiki as an overnight stop between Murchison Falls and Kibale Forest as it's too far to drive in a day. The central area had some comfy seating and lovely staff, so we spent most of our time there. The room was clean and functional but pretty bleak. We had nowhere to sit except the bed, so the room was really only good for sleeping in. The food was fine, and they made a nice job of making a travelling companion's birthday special (flowers at the dinner table, birthday card etc). It's a safe place to break your journey, but I wouldn't want to spend any more time there.

It is a long bumpy drive from Fort Portal to Hoima and staff are very pleasant at Hotel Kon Tiki.However it is one of those hotels where they know you are only going to stay a night so the evening meal is adequate and breakfasts are dreadful.Standard rooms are very clean but quite depressing. Two hours further on is the Boma Women's Cooperative just outside the park.we didn't stay there but it looked fantastic.

I just spent 5 days with a team from a charity based in London. We were all very comfortable in our rooms. The food was excellent and the staff very friendly. I was very ill on one of my days and the staff took good care of me. I would definitely recommend this place.
