Not the worst hotel I have stayed in but those were much cheaper. This hotel is expensive for what you do not get - like hot water. I had one of the best rooms but it was tiny and dingy although clean. The restaurant only had liver in the evening so we drove up to the hotel margarita and enjoyed...

I've stayed in some very basic accommodations and have no problem with clean, but basic. This was terrible, however. The first night, they put me in the main building. Problem was twofold: (1) there was a group of school kids there and the echoing of the halls amplified all their noise. I didn't sleep and no one at the hotel...

I stayed at this hotel for several nights in 2013 and again in 2014. The rooms are clean although basic. The food is good but you need to order your food an hour or so in advance. A good option at a reasonable price for a Ugandan hotel.

I recently held a conference and stayed at Virina Gardens for two nights. The conference set up was sloppy, lacking power cords, all of the meals were late, and it was the most expensive location we had yet to encounter. The rooms were dingy and pretty expensive for Kasese. We paid 70,000 a night. There was no hot water. However...

I have been staying at Virina Garden Hotel on and off for over four years. I like the location, the ambiance, the facility and the staff. It all seems to come together at Virina Garden. Besides, I am also able to carry out my work and hold meetings without restrictions. I will not choose any other place in Kasese.

This hotel is very reasonably priced and very comfortable and well situated in the heart of Kasese. The staff is friendly, although some are in need of training. The food is good and I recommend the chefs Tilapia. Ask them what is fast! You can also do a day safari to Queen Elizabeth if you leave very early and if...
