Stayed here for 3 nights for work. The hotel itself is reasonable given price. Location is also reasonable although it was difficult to find good especially at night. The hotel does have a restaurant however never dared to try given the poor quality breakfast. The hotel is located just outside of the main city area on a small hill. Quiet...

With a great view of the Rock city and lake Victoria. Victoria palace is the best and peaceful hotel to stay. Its policy of alcohol free and its location at Capri point make it the best for family and personal vacation. Above all it has the clean rooms

I liked the bed and the spacious room and the fact that the fruit juices at breakfast tasted homemade. The bathroom didn't have a floor mat to step on, the shampoo was missing, some maintenance hat not been made and some little leeches has decided to crawl out of the sink. The safe was locked and the wardrobe door off...

Nice clean place. Good for a short stay. Very helpful staff. The rooms facing the swimming pool are good as you get a pool view. The lift was out of order so it was a long climb to the 4th floor. The bathroom will benefit from a good scrub but otherwise it's a good hotel.

Victoria Palace is located in the heart of Capri Point. Some rooms have nice views on Lake Victoria. I stayed at Victoria twice and although I did not have a room with a view of the lake, the room was nice, clean and with good air conditioning, warm shower etc. Coming from a week doing a project in a rural...

We stayed at the Victoria Palace Hotel and I don't plan to return even though the price is very reasonable. The kitchen was a mess as their chef had recently departed so breakfast was often served late and their lunch and dinner menu was extremely limited. I'm a vegetarian and they were unable to accomodate my needs so I had...

“Best view and accessibility”

“The rooms up such as 403 (corner room) have a stunning view of Lake Victoria! However, if you want Wifi, they said the signal may not be as good there. Some rooms are better looking/more well kept then others and I believe they have different price range depending on the type of room. I would recommend seeing 1 or 2 rooms before making a choice.”
