Comfortable looking reception, restaurant and grounds are let down by rooms and staff. I have stayed here twice - the room I had in the main hotel was divided from the one next door with a paper-thin partition, through which could be heard every movement of our neighbours. The second time, we opted to follow the recommendation made by one the reviewers here, to stay in one of the bungalow rooms - this was markedly better (with odd decor reminiscent of luxury 70s Uganda as a bonus!). Otherwise, the hotel is usually busy, with the porters hawkishly trying to earn a tip at any opportunity. WiFi is offered, but is an absolute rip-off at USD12 for 24 hours.
