My husband and I stayed at African Roots Guest House 3 different times on our last vacation. The lovely ladies running this place are wonderful. So friendly and always have a smile. They picked us up and dropped us off at the airport in the middle of the night and also drove us to a few different places in Entebbe.... More

Thoroughly enjoyed staying here. I couldn't fault my room, it was spotlessly clean, the bed was very comfortable and the room was kept nicely cool by a quiet fan. The food was also very good. Fresh tea, coffee, fruits and omelettes for breakfast. For dinner I ate delicious homemade soup followed by fresh fish from lake Victoria for dinner. In... More

We spent a night here prior to our trip to Ngamba Island and a further afternoon (with full use of a room) on our return. What a delightful place: spacious and spotless rooms, nothing-too-much-trouble staff (thank you again, everyone!) and also within walking distance of (the handful of) restaurants on the shores of Lake Victoria. It felt more like staying... More

We stayed here our first night in Uganda. They were waiting for us at the airport upon arrival and after over 30 hours of travel the proximity to the airport was very convenient. The room was small and simple, but extremely clean and well taken care of. The hotel is walking distance from Lake Victoria and a number of restaurants... More

Very comfortable and clean rooms, very nice staff: they helped us to get around town and take care of everything that we needed. The food was good. There was no wifi, but the staff let us use their computer as much as we need it. There was hot water which we don't always have in Africa. They took care of... More

We stayed in this guesthouse for two nights in July 2014. The room was fantastic: spacious, clean and airy. With a large bathroom and balcony. Ann and the other staff members were very friendly. The lady that cooked was not only a great cook, but very helpful with other questions I had as well. Enjoyed the great food (rice with... More

We stayed at African Roots Guest House for one night after flying into Entebbe and before making our way up to Jinja. We had booked earlier in the day and the owner offered to pick us up from the airport, unfortunately we were delayed at the airport due to a terrorist warning at Entebbe airport but the owner waited for...

My wife and I stayed with our 12 year old grandson for 1 night on arrival in Uganda and then for 2 nights prior to our departure. It was so relaxing to sit on the verandah before and after the hustle and bustle of airports and aircraft. We were met at the airport, as arranged, even though our plane was... More
