I have been twice in this hotel. The first time it was in August and now (October) for two nights both of them. The rooms from the new wing are nice, clean and the pillows are good enough compared to the pillows from other hotels in Uganda.
The food is always the same everyday. However prices are much higher than the service they provide. The price should include Internet, whose wifi only works in the lobby and restaurant. They can provide a cable, though.
Last time in August all the cardio machines from the gym and the lift were not working. This time at least I could use the running machine but the lift is still not working.
The infrastructure is quite old, specially the restaurant has an old design, only the new rooms have a nice design and are huge.
