The decor is more traditional but we were very pleased with the very clean facilities. No wi-fi that was very strong, but the meals were particularly good, self-contained rooms spacious and fresh. The staff were particularly helpful and good.

Given the lack of competition and the beautiful and historic building, the Management have a great opportunity to create a superb experience. However, apart from the cleanliness and generally friendly nature of the staff, there is very little to commend this hotel. It is very expensive, has tiny rooms with shambolic fittings, has a very noisy power generator that starts...

If you want to experience history and long for nostalgia then come in the evening and have dinner - come prepared however to wait over one hour for your steak. The food is good and the restaurant is charming and by far the best part of the hotel. However you would be daft to stay here for the night. You...

Wow! Like finding a dream-come-true oasis, this place was amazing. The grounds were spectacularly scenic, the food was outstanding, and the atmosphere in several of the public areas made me not want to leave. Stay here if you need to stop in Masindi.

Stayed here one night on a businesstrip. The hotel has some old colonial charme and the staff are friendly. It is also a bit run down and need some loving care. The shower almost worked and the food were good but took so loooong. It is also hopelessly overpriced, more than double that the competition. The place definitely has potential,...

So we were on our way back from Murchison Falls and this is a great little stop over. The history behind the oldest hotel in the area is lovely. The rooms are just what you need, but not luxurious, which is fine. The food at the restaurant was great and the service was friendly.

The hotel was a disgrace. Only good point was clean sheets and hot water. Bathroom light was broken, 1 lamp had bulb missing, another lamp was hanging off the wall. Noisy as beside main road. Need to close windows to keep some sound out. Dinner was cold and served on cold plates. When re-cooked came with same cold vegetables. My...
