Old Charm
I loved this hotel, it's old and quaint with large rooms, powerful showers and old school toilets. Its got charm and style that some of the modern hotels lack. The staff were friendly and helpful. It is right in the centre of town so it's a bit noisy with traffic going past throughout the night. Better to ask for a room at the back. The only thing I will criticise is the food, the bread and cakes at breakfast were stale, and the restaurant doesn't serve local food. Other than that, I am a happy customer and will stay again.

Which Speke you choose ?
I made a mistake thinking I booked Speke resort and in fact it was thé other Speke in city center. I vé been charged 80 dollars for staying Speke resort with 2 meals and 2 breakfast. I took it. Potentially I m not alone being a kind of victim of thé confusion between thé two places. I love Speke resort AT thé point WE stayed even sunday afternoon. Globaly for this moment I spent 230 euros and not even a coffee has been offered...

This is a very nice hotel, and where I always stay in Kampala if I'm not up for spending the amount required for one of the five star hotels. It has a nice charm, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. It is also a central location. My one concern on this trip is that the pictures are deceptive. I have always been given a room that looks like the pictures - with a sitting area that has windows. On this trip, they tried to give us all small rooms, without any sitting area. I was told that it is the same room. Of course, that is not what the pictures show though, and it is a very different type of room and experience, especially since we needed a little meeting space. Eventually they were willing to move one of the three rooms to be in one as per the pictures, but I am still not sure if the person at check-in made a mistake, or if they have deceptive pictures. Either way, this should be fixed.

Plenty of character, several options for dining, good food. Welcoming and helpful staff. Some decor is looking tired, the toilet flush leaked when pressed, the shower could not hold even temperature. I didn’t like them charging vat on drinks prices shown in the menu when it was included in the food prices shown. Eg. 6000Ush for a beer became 7400Ush.

The room I was given was not the one shown in the Expedia app. When I brought it to the notice at the reception they had no answer. The so called deluxe room was like a pigeon hole and unclean. I have taken a picture. Would never stay in this hotel again.
