May be the last bit of forrest left in the city on this small property. I didn't see the monekys this visit. The cabins are fun and enjoyable, (get a cabin if you can) but the single rooms leave a lot to be desired, but good for very basic single occupancy. Love the place in general. Hotel staff are always friendly, and the place has a very unique lodge feel. I will go back for sure. If you have balance issues, or mobility challenges, this is not the place for you.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. That's a big plus. Forest Cottages needs to add on amenities for the handicapped. The staircases, especially in the two-bedroom cottage where I stayed, are not convenient for the elderly, the handicapped, and small children.There is a possibility of a serious accident or accidents. You need to work on those staircases,both outside and inside, as soon as possible.Once that issue is resolved, you will be able to get more clients though you may have to increase room charges.

This hotel gives you a safari lodge experience, complete with monkeys. The price is great, and the services are good. The property is in the city, but you will feel like you're up country in the bush. This is my new favorite Kampala hotel.

I've stayed at Forrest Cottages five times. Each time was great.

I've stayed and visited several hotels in Kampala, Forest Cottages is by far my favorite. The atmosphere is relaxed, the wifi is free and fast, the breakfast is simple and delicious, and I feel as though the staff really goes out of their way to serve. I was working in lounge for several hours one morning and each staff member who walked by quietly greeted me and asked if I needed anything. In my most recent stay, I forgot my wallet/phone/passport holder in my taxi. Once I realized it, I told the receptionist. I broke out my computer, tracked down the driver's number, and asked the used the house phone. The receptionist didn't hesitate. She got me an outside line and handed me the phone. From my previous experiences in small/medium sized, African hotels, the receptionist would tell me they needed to check with a manager to get permission to make a call. I always feel as thought the employees at Forest Cottages are empowered to make my stay pleasant.
