We stayed in the triple room in the African Roots guesthouse for 2 nights. The rooms were very clean and the staff is superfriendly. They offer a free airport transfer, the breakfast is very good and there are nice hot showers.

I look forward to visiting this hidden treasure in Entebbe every year. Nice accommodation and a great staff that work hard to see to it that your needs are met. They also accommodate to a lot of UN personnel from all over the world in a small town community. Love this place.

African Roots Guest House is one of my best travel discoveries! Sometimes recommendations on tripadvisor do not live up to their rating. This one does and more! Room: Each has a four poster bed with a custom fitted, satin trimmed mosquito net over it. Sheets are crisp and clean and, upon arrival, have a miniature rose from the garden on... More

We stayed for 2 nights and our hosts were so welcoming at this small, comfortable guesthouse. Our airport pick up was waiting and we were soon at the guesthouse. Not all rooms are en-suite so request one if needed. Our room was fabulous, spacious, clean, good shower, and a balcony. We had some 'noisy' teenage friends visit us during the... 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
