It's on the Entebbe side of Kampala so you don't need to drive through traffic if you come from the airport (though not so convenient for the city centre). The ambiance is nice, though the rooms in the main house can be noisy from the nightclub opposite. The food is a bit mediocre as is the wifi, but it's good...

Clean swimming pool, very friendly staff and great food (lots of choice)! Wifi is quick and there's lots of evening activities to take part in. Would really recommend this place for a slightly more pricey bit of comfort.

Because of the frequent parties they cater, I would not recommend staying there. I enjoy the food and atmosphere during the afternoon on weekends. They also have clay tennis, squash, gym. And the monthly craft and flea market is a good visit.

Dear Backone Thank you for your review. We are quite surprised at your comment regarding the frequent parties we cater at the club. We have very strict policies regarding holding functions at our venue; the main one being that music cannot go beyond 11 pm and therefore parties are few and far between. They are mostly restricted to day time...

I stayed at the Makindye Country Club for five nights and owe my positive experience in large part to the incredible staff - all of whom were professional, dedicated, and friendly. The staff all called me by my first name and took extra steps to make sure my stay was comfortable. I also enjoyed the facilities and took advantage of...

We regularly book business visitors in to the club; the staff are excellent, the facilities well maintained, the food good, and everyone appreciates the warm atmosphere, and being able to escape the bustle of the city. We are daily visitors ourselves for the great sporting facilities and best tennis coach in Uganda.

Not the poshest hotel in Kampala, but definitely the loveliest to stay at. The wonderful staff make MCC an Oasis in the bustling chaos of this city. Pool is fab and the Gym is one of the best equipped in the area. Food throws up a great mix of traditional Ugandan cuisine and old western favourites. Best hotel I've stayed...

I like this place, the staff are supper friendly, but like any place there is room for improvement. I have no complaints about the food, but the pool is too cold and could use a solar cover, to warm it up, which would make the whole experience more enjoyable.
