We stayed 1 night arriving late and leaving early the next morning. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The shower was hot with good water pressure, and the wifi worked. There was no air conditioning but a floor and ceiling fan. We had to keep the floor fan on low as it was a little noisy on any...

Our group of six friends spent two nights here. The food and service were excellent---highly recommend outdoor terrace dining. The fish was superb! We enjoyed the pool after a full day tour of Kampala. There were some minor issues in the rooms (fans not working,lack of hot water at times). But we wouldn't hesitate staying here again. Incredible views of...

After a busy days rafting in Jinga last week, we arrived at Cassia completely exhausted. I'm happy to say check-in was hassle-free and we were even treated to a refreshing glass of passion fruit juice while waiting to be shown to our room. The room itself was spacious, clean and maintained excellently on a daily basis. In total we spent...

You won't find a better view in the whole of Kampala. Cassia Lodge is a welcoming oasis in this city which can be overwhelming at times - it is not central, but well worth the trip. Ideal if you want to stay in Kampala, but not really in Kampala. Staff is very friendly, also the hotel is well known so...

We arrived from the USA after midnight. I thought I must have read the wrong reviews from trip advisor when I arrived! It is a very moderately decorated hotel. You may as well lay on the tile floor as sleep in the bed, it is so hard. The mosquito nets are almost useless as there is a big gap between...

We take every review of Cassia Lodge very seriously. Therefore we spoke to three guests who spent that same night at Cassia. No one has heard the dogs that you managed to count in the middle of the night. Honestly, its the first time since we opened Cassia -6 years ago- that we are confronted with such a complaint. And...
