A hidden gem in the quiet suburbs of Kampala with wonderful lake views, set in lovely gardens. This is a great spot to escape the hustle and bustle of Town, run by Swiss-German ex-pat Bernadette who is kind, welcoming and very helpful. As well as the included breakfast she can provide others meals on reauest and cold beers are always...

An excellent setting for conferences, team visits, or just quiet and peace. I was with five men for an overnight church leadership conference. The lady owner was super nice and very accomodating. Rooms were clean, staff was very helpful and efficient. Breakfast was wonderful. Rooms with a balcony are especially nice with a beautiful view of Lake Victoria and Kampala....

I stayed here for a few nights and was 'greeted' by a very rude lady who turned out to be the Swiss owner of this property which she runs with her Ugandan husband. The couple could not be any different. He was extremely polite and caring and clearly understood how to treat paying guests, who are indeed paying a lot...

We slept her for one night. Easy to find because there are enough signs to the hotel. The car is parked on a secured place with a guard. The room has a double bed with mosquito net. A small tv, fridge en fan on this room. A big bathroom with bad/shower etc. The room was clean. The mattress was not...

I loved this little hotel, perched up on one of Kampala's scenic hillsides! It took a bit to find it and I am glad we were driving a 4WD Rav, but was well worth time and effort! The complex is made up of a few small buildings on several levels up the side of the hill-excellent for privacy and the...

It could be such a nice hotel... the building, the look BUT... first of all the reception they want to make it look artsy but it's a waist of space with a lot of junk. Go for the standard rooms as they are more interesting as the deluxe room... They charge for an extra towel? They charge for an extra...

The New Madagascar is just like a home where there are few rooms in just a quite and pleasant place where you can easily see the lake Victoria!. the rooms are very natural with African touch! the little problem is the laundry services! the travelers are advised to take enough clothes with them otherwise...

This is an acceptable home away from home with most of the luxuries of a home yet in a rustic affordable way. There is good food, hot strong shower, piano and a general sense of serenity. Its adequate for a tourist who enjoys some good scenery and quiet. Is a bit far from town and jammed for one who might...

I stayed at the hotel as i was moving around in Kampala. the location of the hotel was very quiet and comforting despite that it was undergoing some renovation. The owners were a really helpful and kind couple who also helped me a great deal in arranging my trip to Jinja and elsewhere in Uganda. The staff is average though...

Our worst hotel during our stay in Kampala. Poor beds, very slow service during breakfast time (and we were the only guests). Room was oke clean. Would not recommend as googling the place we found that hotal is build illegally and may need to be demolished.
