Speke Group of Hotels took over the Dolphin Suites in May 2010, and our commitment to the traveling guests is, to satisfy two essential yet simple expectations: Provide a friendly and courteous service that meets the needs of the discerning traveler. Provide a perfect ambiance that will ensure value for money on the guest's part. Henceforth, Dolphin Suites has established itself as the epitome of relaxed grandeur, welcoming visitors to the city with stunningly appointed rooms and a host of facilities. It is a unique boutique style hotel offering 27 luxurious and comfortable guest rooms with individual balconies overlooking the hillside of Bugolobi and city of Kampala. An Ideal choice for those who want a quiet stay, close to business and corporate houses, while being located just 5 KM from the city center and 35 KM north from the Entebbe International Airport. A combination of services and dedication of the trained and motivated staff will make your stay comfortable leaving you feeling home-away-from-home. Members, residents and guests can also take time out to relax and de-stress with a little pampering. We offer an array of beauty and relaxation treatments for members to enjoy—from a massage to ease any worries away, to a relaxing facial or an invigorating body exfoliation treatment. The hotel also has an excellent bar, restaurant and outstanding banqueting facilities where one may relax, meet friends or even discuss business.

Dolphin suites is one of Kampala's most friendly, comfortable, price-sensitive hotel. If you need a business stay, leisure, tourist, or just an overnight stay-cation, this is the best hotel.
We are a safari company in Uganda and this is where we bring our clients, and they've never complained of anything. All they give this hotel is 5-stars!!!
We will surely keep working with them, and the manager is friendly and professional too.

Immaculate boutique hotel nestled in the quiet part of affluent Bugolobi suburb. The hotel has all the amenities that a traveller would want to have at their disposal; big swimming pool, shower, fridge and safe box in the rooms. The restaurant has yummy food with wide choice of options. It is close to the Village mall and there are many clubs and restaurants in the vicinity, to add to options for the traveller. Good value for money as the hotel prices for accommodation and meals are quite reasonable. I highly recommend this hotel.

Sorry for the very late reply. The management of Dolphin Suits are very friendly and I don't think they will object to 2 adults + 2 kids sharing one room as long as the kids can share the beds. You may also inquire direct with hotel for extra bed.
