Cassia Lodge: Our View
When we arrived at Cassia lodge, after traveling all day from Cape Town, the reception we received was bright, competent, and welcoming. Due to the elevation of the lodge in Kampala the views of Lake Victoria from here are really stunning!
The reception staff at Cassia Lodge were well spoken and efficient. Judging by the number of people out for sundowners and dinner on the lodge terrace, Cassia Lodge is a popular venue in Kampala to relax and unwind after a long day in the tropics - for locals, expats, and tourists alike.
Set on the slopes of Buziga Hill, and featuring views of Lake Victoria, this informal hotel off Route 109 is 4 km from Ggaba Beach and 10 km from Kabaka’s Palace.As it is often necessary to spend a night in Kampala when beginning or ending a trip in Uganda, we feel that Cassia Lodge, which is reasonably priced for Kampala accommodation of this standard, offers value and convenience.
That having been said, our room, though clean, comfortable, and spacious, appeared a little jaded - in particular the bathroom. While we enjoyed the food at Cassia Lodge, the wine list was dismal, an experience that is common throughout Uganda, other than at the occasional 5-star lodge or hotel.
