“Small friendly hotel/guesthouse in a quiet area”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

Spent 7 nights here while working at JCRC, Lubowa. Staff without exception were very friendly & helpful. I had a large pleasant room with a ceiling fan (which was nice, although a little noisy) and a huge bathroom with bath & shower. The food was reasonable on the whole; I would recommend the local fish and the fruit platters, which were excellent. Staff were happy to provide a flask of hot water and a cup in the evening so you can make your own drink. 2 bottles of free water provided every day. The wireless internet worked in reception but not in my room (no. 3). The grounds are attractive with a lovely view. Nice walk (approx 1 mile) to JCRC.

There are only 10 rooms at this small hotel situated between Entebbe and Kampala, which means that the service is very personalized and you are well taken care of. It is in a very nice, safe neighborhood, and is gated with a guard at all times (you will notice that Ugandans take security very seriously!). There is free WIFI; it works in the rooms but is best in the sitting room area. The rooms themselves are spacious and include a mini fridge, which is stocked with water. The backyard of the hotel includes a pool, which is nothing fancy but nice when it's hot. The rest of the backyard is very green and nicely landscaped, and there are great views of the land around and Lake Victoria. The service and staff are great - you can sit at one of the many scattered tables out in the garden and someone will ask you if you need anything. You can eat your breakfast outside and enjoy the lovely weather, the view, and watch the group of monkeys that live in the tree next door! One thing to remember - you will have to pay in cash. If you want to be outside the busy area of Kampala, this is a very nice option - close to the city and the airport, and a good Ugandan experience. Try the spiced African tea - it was delicious!

Room Tip: Noise from the road can be a bit loud - ask for a room further from the road side, these also have n...
