Here is some news about Mbale:
Page 477 describes under “Upmarket” the Mbale Protea Hotel. This is now the Mbale Resort Hotel. This is confusing because Page 481 lists Mbale Resort Hotel under “Moderate”. Actually it is right because the lease of the Protea side expired and the old Resort Hotel took the new posh Protea part back under its own umbrella.
So there are are now two hotels with the same name on the same site. The separation of room rates and accommodation is still the same and the phone numbers remain the same as in the book.
Both hotels’ guests share the swimming pool, 20 acre gardens and the gym.
