A small gem hidden among the trees in Kampala
This is really a little gem of a hotel. It's inexpensive, and not your normal business hotel. Instead, your room looks out into the trees, where there are interesting birds making their tropical calls. The window is left open all day. Service is excellent - the staff is friendly, competent, and really cares about your well-being. It's quiet and peaceful. The food was good. So was the bar. And people there are nuts about the Premier League, which was fun. So I heartily recommend this hotel.

Go for the cottages
My stay was enjoyable. Next time I will insist on staying in the cottages as those close to the main entrance can be noisy from loud music coming from pubs around the corner.

pros and cons
Overall a good spot with good management. Access to a great health club/pool via the country club a few minutes walk down the road. Guards were good too - were careful to call boda boda drivers and taxis they trusted when traveling at night and even took down their license #. A few frustrations, though - set up an airport pickup when coming in at night and no one showed up. Description of room I got on Hotels.com said my room would have a balcony - it didn't. Had to change rooms since mine wasn't ready when I got there. Not ideal for business travelers - thin walls and lots of noise til' late every night from a disco that's next door. I think they're trying to speak with the club's management to see what can be done but no solution yet.
