The Protea Hotel in Entebbe is located 2kms from the airport on the banks of Lake Victoria. This is a perfect venue for a meeting with international guests who wish to avoid traffic and require easy access to the airport. The hotel is a combination of old and new with a very interesting design and layout of the building. The... More

I landed in Entebbe late on the 2nd of January, so didn’t reach the hotel until after midnight. The hotel is literally a 3 minute drive from the airport, so the location couldn’t be better. On arrival, the Protea reception staff were waiting with our booking and key cards ready to get settled in immediately. The porter brought our luggage... More

Has a beautiful view next to the water and the food is absolutely exquisite. I love the rooms since they are quite comfortable and the entire environment is breathe taking coz of the fresh breeze from the lake.

Stopped in here with colleagues for lunch on the way to the airport. Surprisingly pleasant location right on Lake Victoria and very, very close to Entebbe airport although surprisingly quiet - it helps that there are not all that many flights in and out of EBB. Food was delicious here, service was very good, particularly from Ruth who served our... More

I stayed in this hotel at the end of November for a conference. It's 5 minutes from the airport terminal and their gardens front right down to Lake Victoria. Firstly you wouldn't know you were so close to the airport, hardly any noise at all. The staff could not have been friendlier & more helpful. The facilities, pool, restaurants, meeting... More

Lovely staff, excellent food. Bar has been updated to make it more "fun". Great pool and views over lake Victoria. My only negative is the wifi. This needs to be better around the whole hotel. In summary I enjoy staying here and would recommend it highly.

Perfect hotel when arriving late at night or leaving early in the morning. Close to the airport with a friendly staff. Rooms are clean with great views. I would be passing through a few days later and would stay at another hotel, which was also nice, however in looking back I wish I stayed here both times.

It's been about 5 months since we last visited Protea and this time we were a group of over 10 and they managed everything so well. The service was fantastic, reception very helpful and the buffet dinner on the 27th was absolutely delicious!! Some in our party had gone swimming earlier and enjoyed their sparkling pool. Overall a wonderful experience!
