2Friends is a very nice place. The rooms are spacious and wonderfully decorated, and the hotel has a great location close to the beach. Buffett breakfasts are quite good and even the internet works perfectly, both of which is very rare for hotels in East Africa. My only remark concerns the restaurant; for such an upscale hotel I expect something... More

Nice place, clean , value for money and provides stunning sunset view! The staff is excellent customer service oriented. Only problem is in the evening they have lots of lake flies but that's what you have to deal with staying by a lake.

We stayed here one night before travelling back to Dubai. Nice place and very conveniently situated. The rooms are average and there is no AC but the staff is friendly and helpful. The beach bar is lovely also. We were given a farewell gift on departure which we truly appreciated.

Our NGO used 2 Friends for a 3 day-workshop (15 people) & it was perfect! The service, the food, the catered lunch on the beach, the internet connectivity- everything!. The live band on the beach on the Friday evening got everyone up and dancing! Our favourite place in Entebbe hands down!

Never expected this... Boutique hotel on the shores of Lake Victoria, Uganda. Cute rooms. Welcoming staff. Fabulous fresh squeezed juice cocktails. Safe and fun private beach with caribean-style vibe. Have fun and be surprised.

We stayed at this warm and welcoming hotel on our first night and our last night in Uganda. It is a short drive from the airport and there is no need to drive into the craziness of traffic in Kampala. We had collected a hire car at the airport and found the hotel really easily. We were welcomed with a... More

We stayed three nights at 2 Friends Beach Hotel and can recommend it wholeheartedly. The rooms are quite spacious and fresh, unfortunately only equipped with fan and not air conditioning. The hotel as a whole is quite small, but has charm and is within walking distance of both Victoria Mall and the botanical gardens. The staff is very friendly and... More

Great location with beach closeby and airport only about ten minutes away. Staff were very welcoming and friendly. Rooms were quite nicely decorated, bed was comfortable - fan in room. Shower was hot, however drain was clogged. Poolside is quite nice and relaxing (pool itself is quite small!). No safe in room but grounds are secure. Wifi available in room.... More

We stayed there in mid January for our first 2 nights in Uganda and returned for our final night. It’s a short drive to the airport and we had a trouble free complimentary pick up and drop off. Definitely opt for a lake view room, so you can enjoy the sights and amazing birds from the balcony. Our rooms were... More
