65 US dollars for a single room, no discount for locals / residents, dirty yellow water from shower and tap, mosquito nets do not fit the bed, average food, slow wifi. Overall very disappointing, will definitely never go back

I was only at the hotel for a couple of hours for a conference and lunch, and thus can only comment on these aspects. I doubt if airport code MBQ is known to many travel agents, but if you are flying to Mbarara this is the code for this rather spartan "aerodrome" about 10Km from town. The Lake View Resort...

The rating 3 is because a reasonably sized room is USD $50. Zero rating for Wi-Fi because signal was zero. WiFi was practically nonexistent in the standard room. And not to forget that there is no airconditioning. No electric tea kettle. No forceful flow of hot water, just a trickle. A few TV channels, in fact only 2 were viewable....

I spent 4 days at Lake View on a work related trip . The rooms are clearly long overdue for refurbishment. On the first night I did struggle with mosquitoes bites, musky smell in the room and dodgy locks. The meals are okay Environment is generally quiet which is a big plus and staff are responsive and caring

Let me start with the positives- Breakfast was huge and the pool was nice. However, in a hotel of this class I expect better. The mosquitoes in my room were terrible and the net was unusable because the headboard was fixed to the wall. The staff was not overly helpful and disorganized at check in. The sink in the bathroom...

The hotel has a very nice view rooms on the lake and the swimming pool! But the rooms are not really clean, I also tried the restaurant which was average as well, it toke them 30 minutes to get the food. The food was nice. The Internet is kind of suck in the entire hotel!

Ambiance is good considering its in town. The showers are not much to talk about as there was no pressure and talked to the reception who said they would look into it. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very nice but if you want pork products one should order night before.

This is the hotel I stayed in the first time I visited Mbarara, in 2002, and everytime after that. This year was the first time after 9 years and service and hospitality was still the same, very warm, friendly and prompt. I loved the new wing with comfortably spacious suites. Restaurant, excellent service from breakfast to dinner. Please make sure...
