Nicely furnished rooms with balcony and great views of swimming pool area .

Good variety of meals at the restaurant .
We had the self catering option too , which was great .
I highly recommend this place .

Royal Suites ticked all the boxes for me. Clean, sizeable rooms, excellent food, excellent service. The swimming pool and gym facilities came with the room, and as I was there for work mostly I enjoyed being able to start my day with a workout/swim.

The rooms were not only beautiful but very well-fitted, with the option (and equipment therefore) to cook for oneself if one so wished. I also liked that each room had a secure safe for keeping valuables, as opposed to having the safe at the reception.

Mosquitoes were rather high in number, but there were mosquitoe nets in all the rooms, and the staff sprayed the rooms with insecticide every evening with the turn-down. Frankly, I didn't feel bothered by the mosquitoes at all, and I had been informed by staff to take care and keep the net in place.

Just FYI, I wouldn't exactly call it low-budget, but I felt I got my money's worth.

For having being seduced by the quality of the rooms and by the information that "parties are organized inside the ball room and it doesn't disturb the guests", I have selected Royal Suites as a base for a mid term assignement in Kampala. But it was a mistake...

Every day, the music is way too loud in the garden which makes the room where you expect to rest a place where you can't stand to stay !!! It is preferable to go out in town have a drink and to come back when the athmosphere is calm down which is mostly not before midninght...

Strongly not recommended if you want to sleep or rest !!

Room Tip: Pool is fully crowded by children and not at all accessible for the guests to enjoy... To avoid abs...
