Paying over $100. Per night with no hot water. Very disappointed. The staff have assured us hot water but they lie. There is no hot water. very frustrating. For the price I do not recommend this place.

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for taking the time to review Mbale Resort Hotel and for always choosing to stay with us over the years. We truly value the opinions of our guests and we apologize for the mishap of hot water during your last stay. We truly apologize that during the time of your stay our central boiler was undergoing routine maintenance thus the delay in having hot water coming through to the room. Am happy to let you know the routine maintenance was completed in a days time and this is sorted. Thank you very much once again for your review and for your patronage of our hotel and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The place is a good hideout to relax and move away from the hustle and bustle of central. It is a launching pad to reach the Elgon region endowed with various attractions. The food is good and the customer care. There is value for money.

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we enjoyed. It is situated in a beautiful ( and well maintained !!) garden , with even a little stream running through it. The staff is very friendly, the service is good. The swimming pool was a blessing after camping 5 days on mount Elgon.

My fiance and I stayed one night at Mbale Resort. The grounds of the hotel are beautiful with nice landscaping, a big pool, and views to Mt. Elgon. We stayed in the old wing on the hotel, which was fine but not luxurious. A very basic room, but had all the necessities and a nice

There are two wings in the Hotel - the old and the new wing , so prices will vary, just be mindful of this when choosing - usual hotel booking sites will be your best bet with prices. . Lovely place whichever wing you choose, just a matter of a few minutes walk from the old wing to the new (where the restaurant etc are located - service will also be quicker as a result).

beside the calendar showing up rain season you can expect in Uganda temperatures between 25 and 30 C. August / September are monthes recommended to travel by own experiances, however it could always have a rain shower, hence be prepared. Uganda is really worth to travel focus on warmhearting people, landscape and beautiful animals.

"Ask for a room not facing the mosque. Otherwise 5 times a day including 5am the racket begins. Uganda may not have noise-pollution laws?"
"Ask for executive rooms with balcony and view."
"Good choices of room availability"
"Make sure you ask for a room in the new hotel. There appear to be two hotels of the same name onsite. Ask for a room with a mountain view"
"All are great"
US$68 - US$77 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
