Clean, large room. View of the courtyard. Staff was very helpful. Food was tasty and varied. Desk staff may need a little more training. Bell staff was great. High security and mid town location. Uber is available in Kampala.

Stayed: August 2017

This was a business trip, 2 nights. The hotel is is very nice and the gardens are beautiful. Electricity is generated by a generator and as a result there is white noise. This may not be an issue for many people but it is for me.

I had a lovely large room with a view into the courtyard. What a stunning garden - green and lush. You can fall in love with it.

We had a good dinner with a nice house wine and also had good breakfast on both mornings.

Personnel is friendly and easy to work with and they try and help where they can.

The only regret I have is that I only got to see a little bit of Kampala - truly a quick in and out.

Room Tip: Rooms with a balcony looking out on the courtyard - but of course it is more expensive.

On the surface this hotel is fine. Staff are nice and facilities are great.

BUT there appears to be a night club just over the fence and so 2 nights we had V loud music booming though the windows and making the room shake.

Just to make things worse the Friday night Caberet (which was at best karoke lift music) went on for ever ! - at a volume that was insane - just under our window making it rattle.

At 6am the staff arrive and start dragging the tables around the patio to sweep up the leaves - at this point I lose the will to live.

AVOID this place if you have any work to do in the evenings or need to sleep after jet-lag

Room Tip: Anywhere away from the front garden and the restaurant

Stayed while on Business travel for 2 nights and I liked it.
The room was very clean and quiet despite that it was facing the parking lot. Wifi connected quite well.
Staff were very friendly at the reception and restaurant.
