Though Esella is located out of Kampala-central, it is ideal for a professional retreat or conference: the facilities are clean and professionally laid out; all IT needs of ours were met. The grounds are beautifully green and peaceful ad well maintained. Rooms are sizable and have TV, ac and very very comfortable beds. The food is excellent- we were there... More

The staff were very unhelpful and a real turn off. the rooms were musky and congested and smelt like they had been freshly fumigated. The sheets for the first night had stains and hadn't been changed for a while. It was also unfortunate for the guests to hear the staff making impolite comments about them when they walked away after... More

We held our wedding here and it was spectacular. It is a great space to hold an event and they offer a great package deal. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms were lovely, although the mosquito nets require an upgrade. The rooms were very clean and the balcony was lovely to sit on and relax. A great... More

Organized a seminar here and was quite pleased. A couple of minor hickups with regards to rooms and a couple of food timing issues, but that's all. Most rooms were of adequate standard and with comfortable beds. Nice and Clean. Internet was a bit off and on but good enough to keep track of e-mails and such. Conference facilities were... More

This Hotel is a good place to stay. It caters mainly for local visitors and events (including parliamentry meetings). The site is slightly "over developed" but there is a big lawn in the middle. The staff are very good, especially the bedroom cleaning staff. All internation traveller facilities are available - but you have to ask for them - there... More

In October 2012 I spent a week at Esella for a work retreat. The hotel has several conference rooms available and sufficient space to host big groups of guests. The atmosphere was peaceful which was ideal for our retreat. We had several parallel discussions using different meeting rooms or even the garden. The location was also convenient while it was...

Originally built as residential massionettes, the conversion of the units into hotel rooms was superbly done. The rooms are quite spacious though moderately furnished. I loved the serenety of the place. The food, howvere, still has a long way to go. It's not unusual for them to run out of items during breakfast and other meals, and seem to be... More
