Five of us stayed in a self-contained Family Unit overlooking the swimming pool. It had a large lounge (with an extra bed if we had wanted it), one double bedroom and another bedroom with two single beds and a third bed built high above part of one of the other beds - grander than normal bunk beds. The bathroom had hot water some of the time.
We enjoyed meals on the open verandah outside the restaurant. There was a good menu with lots of choice and good food. We were always entertained by vervet and red-tailed monkeys, as well as lots of birds, some of them new to us.
One of our group was unwell. The owner quickly picked up on this and gave her complementary tea with honey - a thoughtful touch. We stayed an extra night until she was better and were the only people although it was quite busy at the weekend. However, the only noise at night was the amazing orchestra provided by three different types of frog in the large pond!
The hotel used to overlook the extensive Bujagali Falls. However, they have now disappeared under a vast 'lake' since the hydro-electric dam was built just downstream of the falls. But you can still see similar falls at Itanda if you drive about 15 miles further downstream.
