I come regularly to CR...Paul and Claire and Beatrice take very good care of all their guests. The house is comfortable and well kept, the breakfasts are outstanding, and they make sure to accommodate differing schedules. The Residence is near the airport and also an easy walk to a couple of good restaurants, or Paul and Claire can arrange transport... More

This is very good value for money - lovely guesthouse just a few minutes from the airport. Beds are very comfortable and Paul and Claire are extremely welcoming. One free pickup or drop-off at the airport is included, as is a nice breakfast. They do not serve dinner, but will direct you to great restaurants within walking distance, or will... More

We have stayed here many time and consider it our 'home in Entebbe wherever we travel to or from Uganda. Paul and Claire always give us a warm welcome. The beds are big and comfortable and the breakfast excellent. We would thoroughly recommend this guest house to anyone passing through Entebbe.

We were looking for a place near the Entebbe airport due to some late arrivals and early departures. We looked for a place with good reviews for a team of 7 people, and this place looked promising. It certainly lived up to the great reviews and exceeded our expectations in many respects. The service is very personal and welcoming. Also,... More

I have been to this B&B a few times now and its just perfect. Not far from town, peaceful and lovely company. Paul, Claire and Beatrice are great people and if you need any help with anything they are there to give advice. Its situation is perfect for town or the airport and there are plenty of places to get... More

Wife and I love this place. Perfect clean, comfortable and convenient environment for us who are usually in transit from Entebbe to some other region of Uganda. Especially love the easy access to the airport.

Colonial Residence was a haven, a marvelous “home away from home” for our visit to Uganda. The location is ideal – 10 minute drive from the airport and a 5 minute walk to bank, small shops, supermarket and a restaurant. That short distance encompasses a shift from the busy, noisy and dusty business area to a quiet, clean and hospitable... More
