Great hotel. Friendly Staff.
Great hotel. Clean and super friendly staff. Pillows are too high is my only comment, which is a very minor problem.

Clean, comfortable and highly recommended!
I love Sapphire Hotel. It is our home away from home. We have stayed there many times as we travel to Kampala regularly. Harriet, on reception needs a special mention. She is lovely, funny and tries hard to ensure we are comfortable. The rooms are spacious. The gardens are beautiful and create a very peaceful environment. A super clean and well looked after property.
