Makindye Country Club
Ranked #2 of 210 Kampala B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We live close to the MCC and the whole family loves it! For our little children the toddler pool and the playground are a lovely and safe place to have fun. We as parents enjoy the friendliness if the staff while enjoying a peaceful place in the rush of Kampala.
Food is very good. A place to enjoy.

Makindye Country Club is a very nice, clean and quiet place to stay. The staff is friendly, the gym is good and the food very nice. The swimming pool is clean and there is always a quiet place to find where you can sit and read a book.

I love that MCC is so peaceful - it really is a much needed oasis in hectic Kampala. The staff are very friendly, the facilities are good and the childrens pool, the park and the large grounds are really appreciated by children who can run around freely and safely. There is the infamous flea market on the 3rd Saturday of every month and a open mic music night on the 1st Friday of every month - two events not too be missed. There is mouth watering home made cake to devour and I really recommend the carrot cake. This is a much needed haven for families and singles who are looking for peace and tranquility. Why don't you try it out?

I have really come to appreciate Makindye Country Club. The staff are warm and friendly and know you by name. It's a great place to get away to for a cup of tea or coffee and just be still and relax. The menu is perfect and prices reasonable is you are dining with friends. I mostly use the gym and though it's small it's got everything I need for a complete workout. For tennis players and swimmers you couldn't ask for better facilities. My friends who were just here said the rooms were small but quite clean and pleasant. It's simply a warm, homey place for families, singles, and people just passing through Kampala. The membership fee is low compared to any other club or gym. The location is really a plus for me, too. I'm so glad I joined!

MCC is a members' club offering wonderful sporting and B&B facilities in Makindye, a peaceful Kampala suburb. It is a home-away-from-home for many international visitors, and also a centre for many expats and Ugandan families to keep fit and socialise. It has wonderful facilities for children, and great sports facilities, including two squash courts, two clay tennis courts and the best tennis coach in Uganda. It has a unique ambience and exceptional staff.

The MCC is a beautiful place to relax, or to meet up for social events. It's perfect for getting into daily fitness routines; with it's gym and swimming pool and tennis courts. The menu is amazing and the food is great. I love to go there just to get out of the house and find some space. The area it is in is ideal. It's perfectly casual and pleasant. Absolutely FABULOUS!

I have stayed at the Makindye Country Club (MCC) several times, typically for one to three weeks at a time while travelling to Uganda for my work with an NGO. It is hard to find a good mid-range hotel in Kampala, so I was always pleased to return to a serene environment after a long day where I would typically exercise in the gym, take a dip in the pool, dine in the restaurant, and enjoy the use of free wireless internet -- all for a very reasonable price. There is nothing fancy about the MCC, but it has everything you need. What makes the MCC a great place to stay is the community of friendly people that come there. The staff will learn your name and provide great service, while always being extremely helpful. I got to know many of the friendly faces that frequent the club and nearly always met someone new when I stopped for a drink in the bar or watched sports on the TV. All of this makes it a great value and, I believe, the friendliest place to stay in Kampala.

It truly became my home away from home while travelling back and forth from the U.S. to Uganda for several years. I live in Kampala now and continue to use the MCC regularly as a member and recommend it to all of my visiting guests, personal or business.
