    The rooms are nice. I would not recommend staying here. When it rain the rooms are so far away from the main reception and breakfast area its a mess trying to get there. Reception is not terribly efficient and the breakfast buffet was quite odd.

    Very good 8.0
    I have to admit that I was a little disappointed with our accommodation when we first arrived but by the end of our stay I had warmed up to it. We stayed in one of Speke's suites which overall was clean and comfortable but there were areas that would definitely benefit with being updated. For example, the kitchenette could do with an upgrade. The fridge in our suite didn't have handles which made it difficult to open and the facia on the top of the fridge was missing which made it look unclean. The floor cupboards didn't have backs to them which could provide an entry point for insects. I know we are in Africa and you have to expect the odd insect every now and again but reducing their entry points helps to avoid the situation in the first place. The bathroom seemed to have been partially upgraded but the shower pressure was poor and the floor tiles within the shower were very slippery when wet. Textured tiles in this area would reduce the possibility of guests slipping in the shower. On a positive note, the outside spaces of this property are amazing. It is situated next to Lake Victoria and has beautiful lush green gardens and views. However at night the outdoor dining areas are a little on the dark side which made it difficult to read menus. This could be a deliberate ploy to avoid insects being attracted to lights and causing a nuisance to guests whilst dining. Overall this is a nice hotel in fantastic location. I would stay here again but maybe in a different room.

    Not a Tourist hotel
    After having booked this hotel over 12 months prior to the stay, we were more than disappointed not to have been notified that most of the hotel and its amenities would not be accessible due to a large conference with important officials. We were unable to access the swimming pools, riverfront, gardens and was put in a room at the back of the hotel. Every time we went into the hotel foyer we had to go through a security check and our bag were searched. The main reason we booked the hotel was that it was on the shores of Lake Victoria. We could not even see the lake from the hotel due to the security measures for the conference

    Service was inconsistent. Some days they did quite well, and other days they did not. They don't really seemed geared toward a business traveler. They do a lot of events, weddings, etc. and seem more focused on a vacationing traveler. The events mean really loud music late into the even, especially on the weekends. Some of the good things: the place is beautiful, nice pools, great security, good food, and lots of things to do are available. It is a very family friendly place. Some of the downsides: They seem to struggle sometimes with not having effective internal communication among their staff and that resulted in service that was lacking or non-existent a few times during my stay. I tried to overlook it, but it happened repeatedly over the course of a week. I did talk with management, when asked about it, but still had additional issues. It seems to be an older property so there were things like, the bathroom sink barely drained, the AC unit had to be reset several times each day, and adapters (which they do provide) are needed for international travelers. They were doing some renovations in some areas while I was there and it seemed like the main building was much more up to date. Wifi was in and out a lot as well. Staff's intentions seemed quite good but follow through was a recurring problem.
