Some friends and I decided to get away for the weekend at the very last minute (think noon on Friday). We had heard of the Yellow Haven and decided to give it a try. We were very pleasantly surprised! The rooms are beautiful and spacious, and very affordable when sharing with others. The hosts, Joan and Ronald, were helpful and... More

A very hyped hotel. Staring for the time to check in to check out I had problem. I was disappointed when I had my rooms reserved before hand,they couldn't find my reservation. After long wait finally I got my room, I had bell boys to assist, but even I felt they were expecting tip at every pint. Food quality is... More

Dear Olga M I see from your review that you claimed to have stayed in our Lodge in June 2014 and decided to place a damaging review in Sept 2014. Having checked our bookings we note that you have never booked into our Lodge to date. Your review claimed that you had a problem with our Bell Boys. For your... More

Echt een aanrader in Kampala. Zodra je door het hek bent wordt je in de watten gelegd! Highly recommend - a real Oasis in Kampala. Apartments are spacious and lovely. Sorry we could only stay one night! Hosts go the extra mile to make you comfortable-we really enjoyed it!

Spent only 2 days here as part of a family trip, and wish it had been much longer. By far the best accommodation we came across in Uganda, boasting luxuries that were so welcome after the mixed bag of motels and hostels we had visited. Great pool and spotless rooms. Joan said it was by accident, but I'm sure it... More

I was lucky to find this small gem in Kampala for myself and a group of business partners. Joan and Roland where fantastic hosts and our every need was catered for. Furthermore we also received valuable suggestions to things to do in our limited spare time. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Kampala.

Joan and Roland, the owner of the place, go to great lengths to accommodate your stay. We stayed in the upper apartment for almost two weeks, while we initially only planned to stay for one week. The apartment is amazing and furnished with style. Kitchen has everything you need. Especially the view is gorgeous. Only minor issue is the big... More

Yellow Haven is a wonderful lodge in a beautiful garden, great lake view and lovely staff. The owners will take care of you as if you are at home and will help in any respects. We were staying one week in the apartment, enjoying the awesome view from the balcony, the peaceful surrounding, the infinite pool - you can even... More

Last April I spent 2 weeks in this beautiful area on the banks of Lake Victoria. The lodge is very close to Kampala and very convenient if you arrive from Entebbe to spent your first days in this beautiful country. In the near vicinity you can take a boat trip onto the lake, you find public transportation and good restaurants.... More

I have been to the Yellow Haven Lodge and a haven it is indeed. The swimming pool, the sauna, the barbecue, are the toppings to a quiet peaceful get away. It is also easy to get to. A taxi there is not too expensive so movement back and forth to the center of the city can be done without feeling... More
