Stayed 3 nights here before heading out to explore the rest of Uganda and Rwanda for Gorilla and Chimp trekking. I think some travelers might miss out on just how nice this hotel is if they are expecting north American or European standards...cause you won't get that at all here. But you will get a well run hotel, and yes in Africa, I always say that patience is a virtue and yes, you may have to ask multiple times for something at the restaurant, but just sit back, enjoy and go with the flow and be patient and flexible. The rooms have been renovated and are very nice (even by European and N. American standards) and clean. The beds are comfortable (not too hard at all), the shower water is as hot as you'd like it to be and the bathrooms are modern with complete amenities. Toilets flush normally and bathroom and bedroom linens are all of excellent quality. I was in an executive room. When I needed an extra towel, I asked at the reception, and one was brought to my room within 5 minutes, much quicker than I expected. Lots of TV channels from around the world, but honestly who comes to Africa to watch tv? The food is yes, just OK, but definitely edible just not Michelin-star quality, but that shouldn't be expected at a 3-star hotel anyway. Nice variety of food choices on the menu and bar selections is good. The grounds are very pretty though I did not get to use the pool. Wifi is fairly stable, does go out from time to time and sometimes it runs slow, but that could also be due to high volume use on the network. All in all, I liked this hotel and will definitely stay here again and recommend it to my friends.
