    I absolutely love this place, It may not be a 5 star resort but its got comfortable rooms, balconies and a lovely view of the city and lake victoria. The staff are incredible friendly and quickly make this place feel like a second home. I stayed here 12 months ago and the guy at the front desk remembered me which I think is lovely!
