Dolphin Suites, Kampala
Just okay
The morning buffet is not good, as they don’t have much things on their buffet cart. Inside your room also you can hear what’s happening in the next room, as that much sound disturbance is in night time.

It was nice. Would be much more better if they serve weekend breakfast in the same way as the weekdays. Bathroom was very clean, too.

Solid three star with little improvements needed.
Nice property. Quiet. Need to have own transport or be willing to walk and catch a motorcycle taxi. Service at breakfast and lunch was a little lacking. Noise between rooms was bad. I woke up at 5am two days because of the snoring in the room next to me. One balcony is for two rooms so they are not private. Solid three star.

Value just outside of busy Kampala
Useful hotel for Kampala . Quiet, clean and comfortable. Shiwing sign of wear. Staff could be a little more attentive. Disappointed that pool was not functioning - guests should be told as that is one of the benefits.

Not recommended-Unreliable booking
When I got to Dolphin suites I was told that they were fully booked and would move me to another hotel of similar quality. The hotel they booked me into did not even serve breakfast .
