“For night sleep overs in Kampala, Cassia lodge is the best option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

It is on the a little distance from the city center and by large offers the best room service on the whole. The food is fantastic and I dare say the price is well worth it. I was particularly intrigued by the ambiance.....

Room Tip: sharing a room reduces the price and adds to the total experience

decided to pop over for a drink as had heard so much about the place.
It turned out to look even better than i expected,great views fantastic grounds.

turned up on a busy evening i think there was a graduation bash taking place upstairs but was still able to get attention.
place look nice decor simple done up like a safari lodge.....but in a residential area.
i think its a great pace to have a drink/party.
i like places that nice grounds that are well looked after.
place was also very clean which was great.

Myself and my partner went to Cassia Lodge for a meal in their restuarant and just to spend the evening there relaxing. The views are spectacular especially of Lake Victoria which is clearly visible as Cassia Lodge is situated on a hill. We were given a guided tour of the hotel rooms and the swimming pool all of which were to good standard. The only downside was that the price of the meals is on the high side.

Positives: Great views of Lake Victoria. Fun to sit on the veranda for dinner and see the sun set. The rooms have ceiling fans. Some rooms have air conditioning. The second time we stayed there everything worked and we had power the whole time. Also, the second time the food seemed much better. Maybe that was because we had been traveling for two weeks by that time.
Negatives: The first time we stayed here we experienced frequent power outages (5 in two days). Also, we had asked for adjacent rooms, which we got for the first night, but then had to move rooms the next night to make sure we still had adjacent rooms. Really bad, they charge an outrageous exchange rate on the dollar basically 15% below market. Some of the equipment like fan and ceiling fans are old and in need of replacement. Based on our two stays I would say make sure everything in your room works.

I stayed here in November 2012 - the hotel itself is very nice, rooms are pleasant enough, not what I would call up to a high international standard (eg Sheraton) but you're paying for the view here which is simply amazing...

What let's this hotel down is noise - lawnmowers at 7am, staff with radios on or shouting at 7am, and roosters kicking off at dawn - but worst of all are the party bars (Friday & Saturday only during my stay) that literally sounds like they are in your room at full tilt all through the night until 6am the next morning - of course if you were to stay in the week that would not be a problem. Ear plugs alleviated the party bar noise a little as did turning the a/c on full blast - which dampened the sound.

Aside from that my stay during the week nights was very pleasant - you can almost live with the noisey staff, rooster and lawnmowers as the view is undoubtedly breathtaking - but if you want any sleep at all avoid Friday & Saturday (unless you want too party until 6am!)...

Food is decent, great steaks and evening/lunch selection - breakfast a bit bland and boring.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked the same to me - you can walk out of the ground floor ones into the garden - vi...

We stayed here 2 days before and 3 days after our tour through Uganda. This is really the ideal place to recover from a tiring tour and to think over all the beauty this country has to offer.
Away from the busy Kampala you enjoy the beautiful accommodation and unforgettable views. Restaurant is of a high quality at a fair price. The staff is very friendly and helpful and works there with pleasure; they make you feel at home. One big family !!!
Most certainly a place to recommend !
