“Stay at Kampala”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

I stayed at the hotel as i was moving around in Kampala. the location of the hotel was very quiet and comforting despite that it was undergoing some renovation. The owners were a really helpful and kind couple who also helped me a great deal in arranging my trip to Jinja and elsewhere in Uganda. The staff is average though but the breakfast is better so is the dinner but i will request the hotel management to rellok the food there as one finds a serious lack of variety in food. Not good for business people as it is away from main city. A touch expensive it may seem but every penny is worth it if one manages the food from outside!

Room Tip: Go to the first floor if you don't mind climbing with your luggage.

Our worst hotel during our stay in Kampala. Poor beds, very slow service during breakfast time (and we were the only guests). Room was oke clean. Would not recommend as googling the place we found that hotal is build illegally and may need to be demolished.

I stayed there for one night and let me say its like home away from home.The only disadvantage is that its soo far from Kamplala city and i missed all my business appointments. The staff have no uniform so it felt abit funny...I had fish and chips for dinner and it was wonderful.The breakfast was average but better.

Room Tip: Go there if you need a quiet environment..

As one of the other reviewers pointed out, service is definitely lacking here. However, the rooms are very nice. We went off-season, so it was very quiet. Food is nothing to write home about, but you are only 15-20 minutes away from downtown Kampala. The only issue is getting to and from this place. The hotel taxi driver was not very impressive, but you might be able to get other taxis. And if you don't care about boda-bodas, there are plenty around.

Reviewed 22 December 2012

The location of the hotel is superb with the view second to none, the staff are nice and friendly, but the problems are, there seems to be a lack of training and organizing skills given to them, having breakfast turned out to be a long and frustrating experience with it taking up to 40 minutes for everything to arrive, and quantities varied every day, sometimes not enough jam for one person let alone three, then having to request more every time starts to wear thin, just a general lack of common sense, coffee not fresh instant, which I find strange in a coffee producing country, then all the extra little charges, which I don't mind if I am made aware first. one day the power went off early morning and was not restored till evening, they have a generator but did not use it, this meant all the food in your fridge was spoiled plus no INTERNET all day, and the woman in charge who I believe is from Switzerland, was very evasive and very rude with no customer skills.

This hotel is located in a quiet suburb of Kampala, and has a wonderful view across Lake Victoria. The hotel is peaceful and the owner is very friendly.
I would recommend this hotel for a few days rest and relaxation, but if you are working in Kampala then the traffic into the center would be a problem.
