This is an excellent hotel and resort in ALL respects. Except one. And that is the food. I have stayed and ate in the Serena, Sheraton and Protea hotels in Kampala and the buffets are EXCELLENT, Huge choice of foods, unlimited supply, mabye 30 dessert choices, etc etc etc. At the Commonwealth resort, which is better than all of the above, the food is buffet is WORSE than you could find at a three star hotel. Why? And it is the same price as the buffet's at the other hotels.
The buffet at the Commonwealth Resort has limited choice, and that is mostly local Ugandan dishes. Surely a SIMPLE MATTER to even just COPY the buffets at the other hotels. It is NOT rocket science, but the food provision really let;s down what would otherwise be a five star plus experience. Please get your act together on the food front.
