Although this hotel seems to be in disrepair on the outside and has a slightly dated look on the inside, the stay was very comfortable. The rooms are large and the bathrooms adequate. Beautiful swimming pool and friendly, helpful staff. The only negative was the unreliable wifi connectivity. I will stay here again. Ask for a golf course view room,...

Spacious, clean and comfortable room, a nice spacious bathroom too. Friendly and helpful staff (Internet access had a problem in my room, but was promptly fixed after reporting the issue). Also has a nice breakfast spread - easy to pack on a few extra pounds whilst staying here! Definitely the best place I have stayed at in Kampala thus far.

It is not cheap, but more reasonable than many of the upscale hotels in Kampala. It has the amenities needed: Business climate, workout facilities, etc. The pool is fantastic for fitness swimmers as well. Nice breakfast buffet by the pool and the rooftop restaurant revolves offering a 360 view of Kampala. The location is great, nearby all main offices and...

This interesting hotel is situated amongst the busy surroundings of a typical African City Kampala. The tranquil revelation of the golf course edged by original forest, the sound of birds calling the tall forest trees and the calming view from your room window of foliage and smooth lawns, is similar to the sudden appearance of an oasis in the desert....

Been to this hotel countless times. For business, family functions, two weddings breakfast, dinner. I always find it to be one of those hotels that should be classified as really good but find myself unable to venture that far. However it's location is enviable with a full golf course at the back and the immediate outskirts of kampalas CBD. so...

I've now stayed here a couple times and while the rooms are large, clean and comfortable there are a number of failings. Each room I've been in has had a fault that hasn't been rectified, for example broken safe or non working tv. Each room has also had a shower that while is nice and powerful, causes a leak over...

Location is great with a golf course and also a small shopping mall. Handy local crafts shop as well. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. A rotating restaurant in Uganda was a delightful surprise. Breakfast was a great buffet. Lots of fresh fruits. Rooms quite large. Swimming pool looked great but sadly not enough time to enjoy.

I recently spent 4 nights here on a business trip & enjoyed my stay. The staff were very welcoming, friendly & helpful. I really appreciated their assistance with the complicated ground transport arrangements that I needed to make which coincided with the Pope's visit. I enjoyed my large room overlooking the golf course, which was also spotless.
