I was very disappointed by my stay there. I spent two nights there with my husband on 30th and 31st December 2016. We booked because of all the great reviews on Trip advisor. However, the towels were threadbare and stained, the tv remote didn't work and when we complained were told that the tv channels were not working. We later...

We could spend a quite silent and pleasant holiday off the Kampala noise yet within the city. They service was also on point as the rooms were well made and we had no difficulties accessing the buffets as had been paid for.

My husband and I had to unexpectedly come to Uganda for urgent business and booked last minute in Forest Cottages because it was close to a specific org and the price was right.

The staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and comfortable with hot water for showering. The kitchen offers a nice breakfast buffet. The compound is clean and nicely shaded. I will stay here again.

The cottages were exquisite and immaculately clean. We enjoyed the very quiet and cool ambience the one bedroom cottage offered. The staff were always kind. Definitely a place you need to book in advance. Would come back again for sure.

Second time staying at Forest Cottages, when visiting family, and cannot recommend it enough. It really is an oasis of peace amongst the 'busy busy' of life in Kampala. If possible choose a cottage as they, and their forest setting, are quite charmng. 1 bed cottages have lounge and kitchenette upstairs, with fridge, kettle, toaster, electric hotplates and microwave so...

When you walk into reception here you think WOW ! Absolutely amazingly beautiful, you can't wait to see your room, your excitement builds as you walk to the room and then the door opens, you are greeted by a room with absolutely no décor, just beige walls, a little bigger than a double bed, reminiscent of a UK police cell...

Forest Cottages is idilic and peaceful. As other guests have noted, it feels much further from the city than it is. Sitting on the terrace eating a lovely meal (the food is very good) and sipping a Nile Special in the evening is an absolute pleasure. Staff are very friendly and helpful too. Access to the gym, sauna etc at...
