Staff & service




Property conditions & facilities


6/10 Good

Some of the staff were good and attentive even if they moved a little slowly, but the cook was a moron. He/She doesn't know the difference between a cream sauce and tomato sauce on pasta. The cook just prepares whatever food they want and expects you to eat it. The "deluxe" room also has only one working electrical outlet. This is quite impractical for many modern appliances that need to be recharged, The attendant George was very helpful though. Thanks George! Otherwise, this is just another hotel which employs several lazy women with bad attitudes who are "in charge". It's also quite far from the city. It's best to avoid this place

6/10 Good

Moderate hotel away from main centres
The hotel was reasonable for the price. We'd stayed in three other hotels in Uganda and would not say it was by any means the worst. It did have free internet which was handy although a bit frustrating with a number of router reboots to restore connections. The food menu was extensive in comparison to others we went to but as we only stayed the one night can't vouch for availability on the day. The bed was good with a full mossie net around the bed not that we needed it. Traffic noise was bad during main hours but calmed down at night. This is Africa and a poor part of Africa so don't expect top class service or performance - be prepared to accept lower standards and just enjoy the experience . If you can lower your standards then don't go.
