Five star to truly mean five star in Uganda

Sheraton KampalaUganda has just two truly five star properties, the Kampala Sheraton Hotel and the soon-to-be-opened Kampala Serena Hotel, but you wouldn’t necessarily know it. Until now, five star ratings have been self-allocated rather than state-decreed.   All this looks set to change, however, as the Ugandan Ministry of Tourism looks set to present a bill to parliament that will ensure greater scrutiny is put in place upon hotel classifications. Good on them – I’ve always felt self-accredited ratings are something of a nonsense.
