Good bits - Very large rooms with comfortable beds.
Internet works quite well in certain areas around the hotel (for Ugandan standards).
15 minute walk to mall with a cafe that offers exceptional coffee and the best hot chips - Cafe Pap.
The pizza served at the in-house restaurant was really really good, especially the spinach one. We had to book an extra night at the last minute due to car troubles and the reception staff were very accommodating, giving us all back our original rooms within 5-10 minutes.
Bad bits - Our shower was not working very well, the shower head wouldn't stay in the holder and the diverter had to be held up by hand.
The in-house restaurant took 2+ hours to serve our pizzas even though we had confirmed in the morning that 9 of us would be dining that evening.
Quite expensive for what is is - about USD100 for a room without air conditioning.
