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

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

What a nice haven after a long flight. Claire, you are an angel! Your garden is wonderful and so is your hospitality. We had flown from Amsterdam and our flight was late and Claire had a driver at the airport waiting for us which was very reassuring.

Stayed at Colonial Residence for one night upon arrival in Entebbe. The hospitality of Paul and Claire is exceptional! The Residence arranged a free airport pick-up. The place is very clean, with a beautiful, well kept garden. The breakfast was cooked for us and was very good. The rooms were clean, but very basic - I had everything I needed,... More
