We arrived late October 2016 and stayed for two weeks into November. The staff greeted us on the first day with courtesy and professionalism and continued in that vein until the day we departed. Francis at the front desk was especially helpful whenever a need arose. All of our servers during morning breakfast were especially attentive as well. The accommodations...

The overall standard of the hotel and the exceptional service from the staff especially manager on duty (Mr. Dhaval & Mr. Yogi) was second to none. I will certainly be staying here again. It makes me feel like home. Cheers Vinayak

We have just stayed 10 days at Forest Cottages and enjoyed it very much. The gardens and grounds are delightful with a surprise around every corner. Meals are fine with quite a bit of variety but there are other restaurants within easy distance. There is also a pool and gym at a neighbouring hotel that guests can use. The staff...

The location of the hotel is great in spite of the road constructions around Kampala, it is still accessible with relative ease. The staff are quite friendly and helpful. One issue to raise with the facility are the ceilings in each room. During the dry season, the dust comes in and makes it a bit unpleasant. The garden setting is...

My wife and I stayed at the Forest Cottages in Kampala for one night in Sept 2016. When we pulled up to the hotel grounds we immediately thought it was an upscale establishment. The grounds were well manicured and the lobby was beautifully decorated and luxurious. They even had a nice billiards table in the lobby! All of this led...

The gardens are lovely and green with resident monkeys. The staff was pleasant and helpful. The room was small and rather dingy. The fan didn't work and as it turned out neither did the plug. The bathroom was cramped and the toilet overflowed one morning and by the response of the staff and other residents that wasn't the first time...

Rooms very basic. Plumbing could do with an upgrade. But comfortable outside is very pretty. Staff are lovely and helpful. Monkeys come out in the mornings when staff encourage them down with food! Lovely to see this on our first day in uganda! Nice food too!
