We had one night in Kampala at the end of our trip and the Namirembe Guest House was all we needed it to be.
The rooms are reasonably sized with comfortable beds and a wall mounted fan to cool you down. The room and bathroom was very clean however the water pressure in the bathroom was very low which made showering a bit of a chore. That said, it's better than many people are fortunate to have in Uganda.
The food in the restaurant is cheap and good quality, both for dinner and breakfast. After the long drive it would have been nice to have a cold beer however as this is a Christian guest house it is alcohol free.
The terrace of the restaurant commands some great views over the city and a short walk up to the cathedral behind the guest house gives even better ones!
Cheap, clean and very cheerful!
