Well received by the staff and promptly served. The premises are clean and ambiance is relaxing. Food was hot and fresh drinks offered in good variety and tastes. I will recommend this hotel to my friends.

Too much noise and rooms not well mentioned. Poor customer care. You sit in the restaurant and hardly get a waiter to serve you. Front desk staff are not friendly and sometimes don't care about clients.

We arrived with family late at night.receptionist was courteous, they got us a nice baby cot for the child and some hot milk. We even got housekeeping to put a mosquitoes net up for the cot. The food was fantastic. The pool is the best that side of Kampala and the staff are very helpful when approached kindly.
