“Great stay”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Located outside the hustle and bustle of Kampala City, Esella provides a quite and conducive atmosphere for maximum enjoyment and concentration. The rooms are well furnished with a.c and open wireless internet. the food is great and the staff are friendly and helpful. Beautiful gardens too!

However there are no elevators, so you have to climb stairs to reach upper floors. It is ideal for retreats and conferences that require maximum concentration

Room Tip: Choose the single storied massionettes if you cant manage to climb stairs in the 7 storey building

In October 2012 I spent a week at Esella for a work retreat. The hotel has several conference rooms available and sufficient space to host big groups of guests. The atmosphere was peaceful which was ideal for our retreat. We had several parallel discussions using different meeting rooms or even the garden. The location was also convenient while it was in town and thus easily accessible, guests were not tempted to run for other meetings as they were in the retreat.

Buffets were generally varied and tasty.

Hotel rooms are spacious and quite luxurious, modern layout, simple and clean. Beds were super comfortable.

Originally built as residential massionettes, the conversion of the units into hotel rooms was superbly done. The rooms are quite spacious though moderately furnished. I loved the serenety of the place. The food, howvere, still has a long way to go. It's not unusual for them to run out of items during breakfast and other meals, and seem to be overwhealmed by guest numbers when hosting conferences

Room Tip: The ground floor rooms are bigger than the upper floor ones
