I stayed at this hotel for three weeks in November, the staff on reception were helpful and friendly, the hotel is based upon one main site with rooms in a number of buildings in the grounds! The room was large and clean and had a TV and Airconditioning . The bathroom was large with a walk in shower, two single beds with mosquito nets and a complementary bottle of mineral water daily. The soft drinks and beers are reasonably priced and the food is of a reasonable standard. Breakfast is a buffet with a good variety of choice and an omlette/ eggs station. Lunch was mostly buffet but the menu did not have a great degree of variety. Evening meal was either a la carte or buffet, the a la carte offered a good range of choice of curries, pizzas and traditional African dishes, tilapia and other sea food! The buffet seldom varied and became extremely predictable.
The hotel is located quite a distance from Kampala approx 3km+ and required a taxi or boda to get around.
The swimming pool was interesting and the water mostly appeared murky despite managements attempts to chlorinate it! We did not use it during our stay! The hotel was very busy and catered for a lot of social events and business clients and was at times extremely noisy until the small hours of the morning! The coffee shop in the foyer did a good range of drinks but was relatively expensive. I will not comment in detail over the hotel security but it was on a par with other hotels in the area and seemed adequate!
Overall this was a pleasant stay with nice people and very clean rooms, the buffet was predictable but the a la carte was quite good! The noise at times was a little intrusive but otherwise the stay was better than I expected !
