I was in this hotel for 8 days, for an official work. I enjoyed the stay and food. The food is suitable to Asians/Indians too. The staff are excellent and very attentive. However, it is farer from the city and main offices/business establishments. No markets/shopping nearby. Otherwise, I recommend this hotel for comfortable stay.

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
