We went to cassia lodge as a non resident and used its pool and restaurant. The location I would say is perfect, staff is good in hospitality, food is nice, however would have been better if options for Asian/Indian food were available. Cleanliness of swimming pool is questionable and requires more attention. We wish to stay there in near future.

Marvellous views, so peacefull and still even so close to the excitement of Kampala. Comfortable rooms, nice food, great bar. We had a warm welcome, friendly staff and nothing we asked for was too much. Next time in Uganda/Kampala, one address : Cassia Lodge!!!

Having been several times to Kampala in the last six months, I must say that the cosiness of the rooms, the good food and drinks, the hospitality of the owners and personnel, the unbeatable view on the terrace ... are things that compose a cocktail I can't refuse. I met a lot of interesting people there as well. For me...

We arrived late night at Cassia Lodge. Waking up the next morning with the most beautiful view on Lake Victoria was the best start ever to begin our African journey.

I must be missing something. It's not a place for sleeping. We stayed 1 night at the beginning of our safari and 1 night at the end (not our choice) and couldn't wait for the stay to be over. Kampala has so many better places to stay. * No air-con in the room (and the night was HOT). Rubbish fan...

Really comfortable lodge just outside of Kampala. Be prepared for a taxi ride to town, but the ride helps orient you to the city, so it's not really a disadvantage. The pool is quite nice and refreshing after a day exploring the city. The dinner took a while to deliver, so be prepared for leisurely eating. Breakfast is pretty typical,...
