Makindye Country Club

Reviewed 31 May 2014

I highly recommend the mcc. I joined the club during the few months I was in Kampala and found it to be a great place to relax, meet friends and keep fit. The food is good and the place is clean and secure. It's a relaxing place to be, has wifi internet, a bar and very friendly staff. I really enjoyed the boxing classes - they are a great way to keep fit or get fit! Tennis lessons by the club coach, Godfrey, were also excellent and very good value. Highly recommended.

Another few days at the beginning and end of two weeks travelling in remote and difficult parts of western and northern Uganda. I feel safe here and know that I will have running hot water, a nights sleep and a friendly and caring staff.
Its so nice to be welcomed by name and be looked after with good food and coffee that is not served from a flask !
Well done to Cathy and the team. The Management are accessible and will pay attention to what you say.

We had a good stay at Makindye Country Club. The personel was friendly. The food was good.
The swimmingpool was ok. When staying with kids, they can enjoy themselfs in the (kiddy) pool and on the playground.
The rooms were good.
I think the price quality rating is ok for the things you get.

I have stayed at the MCC many times and have never been disappointed. Friendly and caring management & staff, comfortable lodging, good meeting space, great outdoor area for lounging, for children to play, or for just hanging out. The air is clearer in Makindye (and therefore at MCC) than it is in Kampala city center which more than makes up for having to deal with the hectic drive into the city if/when necessary. I expect to stay at the MCC every time I visit Kampala & would encourage anyone else to consider the same.

Room Tip: Rooms in the lower building are quieter at night.

I spent my first two nights in Uganda at Makindye Country Club and found it to be a calm retreat from the chaos of traveling to and around Kampala. I stayed in one of the rooms in the back building with a private bath, which was quiet and clean. I was there on two week nights, and I did not have a problem with noise in my my room (#11.) It may be worth spending more money for a front building room as suggested in other reviews if you are going to be there on a weekend because there is an indoor common area in the back building which might be loud at other times. The price was very reasonable compared to 4 star hotels in Kampala, and continental breakfast was included in the rate. The lobby/restaurant area was a relaxing place to hang out. It overlooks tennis courts and the pool and has the feel of a tropical oasis. I ate one dinner and had two breakfasts at Makindye and enjoyed all the meals. This was a great place to start out my travels in Uganda!

Thank you for your comments, they are greatly appreciated.
The 2 rooms overlooking the main road can sometimes be noisy up till midnight with bars from across the street but Kampala City Council are taking the matter of noise pollution seriously and have been controlling this recently. We hope to welcome you back again some day and thank you for staying at Makindye Country Club.

Many reviewers here had used the word OASIS to describe the Makindye Country Club, and I could not agree more! It is a breath of calm fresh air that feels strangely separate from the chaos of Kampala, yet is still conveniently close to town. MCC has some really great mature gardens, immaculate lawns, a charmingly exclusive bar and restaurant, some of the best clay tennis courts in the country, and the most personable and friendly staff I may have come across in Uganda. It is a real gem that has a real healthy vibrant feel to it - a home away from home.
