We stayed in this guest house last September at the beginning and end of our trip, and are back for the two ends of our Feb./March trip. They welcomed us like old friends and had the hot water heater turned on for our late night arrival. they offer a special rate for NGOs and missionaries, but have lots of tourist... More

Unable to get my team into our usual GH, I tried another, only to find they were also full - and in turn had email forward to LVVGH. It was purely thanks to the reviews on TA, that I felt confident enough to make the booking and was not disappointed. They also price-matched, although didn't have a record of it,... More

The guesthouse is set in a leafy neighbourhood and has wonderful views over Lake Victoria (the name is truely accurate). We spent the entire morning sitting on the porch watching the view and catching up on some work (with good internet connection all the way out into the yard!). We stayed in the main building which was the home prior... More

Lovely cheap place to stay with a pleasant, homely dining area (I do enjoy having dinner and watching the family on the couch in the next room watching TV) and helpful staff. The view of Lake Victoria is also amazing. Would recommend staying here if you're after somewhere cheap with wi-fi and hot showers before flying out.

This is a lovely cheap guest house with a great view over the Lake. The rooms are clean and neat, service is friendly, gardens full of colourful birds and it is very close to airport. The food is simple and reasonably priced. If your on a budget this is a great place to stay.

The rooms were clean and pleasant with both electricity and hot water. The beds were very comfortable. A driver is available to transport you between the airport and the guesthouse, and he will help with errands as well. The food was adequate. In the reception area are roomy sofas and wifi.

comfortable rooms, wifi, hot showers, beautiful grounds with a view of Lake Victoria. The staff are helpful and flexible and will help you do errands or plan touristy events. food is decent, although not amazing or inspired, but for the rate, it can't be beat.
