Located in a private environment yet close to the city center Golden Peace Hotel in Gulu is a new chapter in the troubled past of Gulu. Although i have visited on occasion my one week stay with my fiancee who was visiting the country, at the hotel was simply stunning. A blend of modernity and that which is traditional the hotel ambiance allows you remove yourself from a hectic day and places you in a relaxing atmosphere. Emphasis here is on nature: trees, flowers and lots of breezy air.
The rooms and washrooms are very clean and the air in the rooms fresh. Service is good and the staff try to ensure that you have the best experience. No doubt the inevitable ‘blackouts and power outages’ may intrude on your stay but there is a back up as the hotel kept a generator on standby. The dinning area and food are great. If you are ordering off the menu it helps to order 15 or so minutes before you are ready to eat.
I would definitely recommend the hotel. For the modest prices charged from as low as 30dollars its worth it. Bonus the hotel van gets you to town real fast and they even organise airport pick ups.
The environment is great and the gardens the best place to chill. There was no pool, gym and sauna two weeks ago when i was there but the plans for phase II i was assured include these amenities. They offered to take me and my friend to these facilities if i needed to go. Was too busy to take up the offer though
