I stayed at Mt Elgon Hotel for a week and my departure was packed with memories of an experience for, I would say, a life time . First the beautiful old building, lots of character, a depiction of true Uganda, no clutter in the rooms and no copying of Europe and Asia. This was a well planned hotel am told by the government and the mountain views are amazing. The staff were wonderful, attention to details… all are fantastic, from the gate to the gardeners, to reception, to the staff in the Masaba restaurant, to the spa and swimming pool, are all fun and first rate. The chefs are great. I realized many diners in the restaurant and all looked happy and my meals were always great. This hotel is amazing to look at inside (would love to know the history). Beautifully appointed rooms. Easy walking distance to everything. The engaging managers and staff, hardworking and very ethical in dealing with people, were a huge part of the experience unequivocally my favorite place to stay in Mbale, if not in the whole part of the Eastern Uganda. I will certainly recommend this true epitome of Ugandan hospitality!!!

Last week our group of 115 staff members from Village Enterprise spent 4 days at Mt. Elgon Hotel and Spa for our annual internal meeting - attendees comprised of employees from Uganda, Kenya, and North America. Mt. Elgon was the perfect meeting place for our team! The staff was incredible, the food delicious, and the facilities made our attendees feel very special while still being able to focus on the scheduled meetings. I would highly recommend Mt. Elgon to any group conducting business in Uganda, and hope to return again!

Clean rooms. Good AC that is a quiet split system. Decent shower with hot water. Nice bathroom with plenty of space to put your stuff. Refrigerator in room, bottled water replaced daily in room plus one “free” at breakfast. Breakfast was good. Eggs made to order. Fruit, pancakes, baked good, oatmeal, more. Service in restaurant is slow, food is ok, not great. Staff friendly. They will do laundry and clean muddy boots. Secure fenced property with armed guard, though we did not feel any threat in Mbale.
