Good quality and clean room with a balcony, bath and shower. It is in the middel of a small villa area. Just 300 mtr from Victoria Lake where you... More

This absolutely lovely, perfectly spotless, extremely well kept gem of a guesthouse may be new but it is getting rave reviews for very good reasons, and let me add mine and if I could add a few more stars I would. Let me begin. First there's Stella, who opens her lovely warm arms to you and sweeps you up the... More

I stayed there recently on my way back to the UK. The guesthouse is very comfortable and clean. The staff are so friendly and Annette made sure I was in time for my flight. Also in a fine position near Lake Victoria. I would certainly recommend it.

African Roots was BY FAR the nicest place we stayed in the whole of our five weeks in Uganda. Upon arrival our group of six were told we had been switched from sharing two triple rooms to instead sharing four bedrooms (two twin, two double) across the entire top floor (free of charge). What a pleasant surprise! This was to... More

Initially this was a stop over on my way to Masaka, and proved to be an excellent place to recover from 2 days flight. My airport pick up waited the 1 1/2 hours for me to clear health screening and customs. No grumbling. They got me into my room and I zonked out. When I came to, I found out... More

We stayed here as a stopover before our flight out the next day. Taken as such, I would highly recommend this place. Rooms are large and comfortable. The tub shower wasn't great, but it worked fine and had a tankless hot water heater. The service at this place is above and beyond the already good service we received elsewhere in... More

Agnes gave us an overly warm welcome, helped us organizing stuff we needed for our trip as phone cards, tickets for the bus etc. and just made us feel at home from the first day on in Uganda. Our room was nice and clean, however a little noisy in the morning as the windows were leading to the patio with... More

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
