We were looking for somewhere new to stay in Jinja and had heard about Holland Park from a friend of ours. We didnt know much about the place before we arrived so were blown away buy the beautifully landscaped gardens and amazing view over the Nile when we arrived. We were greeted by one of the owners, Wim, who was more than helpful showing us the stunning cabins and how everything worked.
There were many things I liked about Holland Park, one was the attention to detail in the rooms. Many of the fixtures and fittings were apparently imported from overseas and you can it see it in the way the door and windows close with a nice solid "thunk". I also liked the fact that even though Holland Park is set on a large sprawling piece of river bank, the owners havnt gone and built on every square metre of land, all the cottages are nice and spaced out and give you a nice feeling of privacy.
There are not any facilities for buying prepared food such as a restaurant, however the cottages have fridges, sinks, stoves and a bar-be-que. It didnt take much effort to stop in Jinja on the way in to pick up supplies and it actually made a nice change to cook our own food after staying in lodges/hotels for a week!
