We stayed there overnight and we wished if it was for another couple of days. Fantastic staff and very good spread for dinner and breakfast. Breathtaking view of lake Victoria. The manager was extremely helpful and concerned of our dietary requirements! Overall extremely happy we stayed there.

The hotel is well built with very good surroundings but service is a bit poor comparing with other hotels in its class. To my surprise, all patrons have to be dropped outside the gate then they walk in, cars are not allowed to enter the gate and the distance from gate to reception is very long. At the gate, you...

We are extremely sorry for what you have faced. We Surely understand your plight. This is not the case in general. The parking flow of cars coming right up to the reception gets a little tight, some days in the year. This for security reasons of top dignitaries staying in the resort. Of course we still have parking space in...
