Uganda's worst Hotel Experience

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 16, 2013

DO NOT GO THERE. I invited a family friend along with his three children and wife for the new-year (2013). I reserved two units of their two bed roomed furnished apartments but to our surprise one dining table was suspicious covered with linen at check-in . Little did we know that they were covering up a broken glass which they later made us pay (close to 200USD) at checkout. It was very embarrassing to my guests and family. The management was adamant at one point even mentioning that for the absence of hot water in one of the units, it was our responsibility to inform then rather than theirs to confirm the room stated prior to our Check-in. Despite having been a regular client before I found the treatment totally unacceptable as it even culminated in locking up our luggage and holding us in their control room prior to paying what we didn't break. I had also been there for the 2011 xmas and the diner was over congested with dignitaries eating while standing for lack of seats. I DON NOT ADVISE ANY BODY TO GO THERE

Unique Quality: Rooms are well furnished but wall finishes and capentry leaves a lot to be desired, rigid resturant menu, be carefull you may pay for what you didnt break, as we did for a table we knew nothing about. Staff are not warm

Directions: On Shores of L. Victoria, southern extreme of Kampala

The Speke Hotel is located across the street from the Sheraton Hotel and its gardens. It is a nice looking neo-colonial hotel with a beautiful lobby area. It also has some great rooms, a pool several eating and drinking possibilities and a large outdoor music venue (loud). You can sit around the pool and enjoy a meal as well just a cold drink. It’s on the higher end of the price scale, but cheaper than the Sheraton. It provides a range of guest and business services, is right in the heart of Kampala and has excellent security. For a good nights sleep, ask for a room away from the Rock Garden Nightclub.
