This was our first visit to Dave & Alison and certainly wouldn't be the last! They warmly welcomed us in their comfortable guesthouse and made us feel at home, as if we had been frequent visitors. Our 9 month old daughter loved to play with Alison and also felt at home, which was very valuable to us. We will recommend... More

If you are seeking a little bit of childhood solace during some weary travelling, look no further than Alison and Dave's in Entebbe. This quaint guesthouse truly is a home away from home. Clean rooms and well maintained spacious bathrooms with a homely vibe - it's was like staying with the parents- without the awkward questions or the space invasion.... More

It was lovely to host Mary and as we had 3 other guests from Lancashire in at the time it was a very English gathering. Alison and I hope her trip to Kenya was good and we wish her safe journeys on the rest of her trip. We are sat on our terrace writing this now, just had two African... More

As a returning guest, I loved every minute of my stay in this peaceful, homely guest house. I call this place my ugandan home after staying here twice before. The place is perfect; unrivaled hospitality in Entebbe with excellent food, helpful advice for onward travels and spectacular views of the lake. It's comfortable, quiet and has a good flow of...

We stayed 2 nights with Alison & Dave in July. They were more than hospitable letting us ride along on errands so we could walk around the city. Recommended safe restaurants for lunch & dinner. Took us shopping to their local market & to their sailing club for a look around. We felt more like invited guests than lodgers! Dave... More

Alison and Dave were excellent hosts. The house is situated on top of a hill with stunning views of Lake Victoria. When we arrived we were treated to tea and cake on the balcony overlooking the Lake. The room was very clean and it just felt like home from home. Breakfast was excellent. They were also incredibly helpful when we... More

Ali and her friend were returning to England to resume their teaching careers after 10 months volunteering in Uganda. None of us though expected the drama of bomb warnings for Entebbe airport and expected at the time they were due to fly out! However, the trip to the airport and through security was smooth and efficient even with the raised... More

We had a free pick up from the airport, lovely hosts who made our stay very enjoyable after 2 exhausting weeks in Ethiopia. The house is beautiful, the veranda great, the gin and tonic excellent (thanks again) and Entebbe is worth a stay for a couple of days. We definitely recommend this place !

Juergen and his partner arrived having spent time at an even higher altitude than Entebbe in Ethiopia where it was also cold. They soon relaxed and warmed up and Alison and I were only too happy to give them a lift into Kampala for their onward journey to JInja for some white water rafting which we hope they enjoyed as...

This clean, comfortable guesthouse was perfect after a long journey. I was picked up on time and taken to a lovely room with private bath. Given a cup of tea and allowed to contact my family briefly before going to sleep. A delicious breakfast was prepared in the morning while we conversed as if we had known each other before!... More

Anne booked a long time in advance and we seemed to know her before she arrived! The flight from America to Uganda is a long one and we know how tiring it can be. If as hosts we can help make the arrival more welcoming that is what we aim to do. More

Greeted like friends, treated like royalty, left like family. What a wonderful gem. Comfortable accommodation with superb views to Lake Victoria. I spent 7 nights here, a peaceful place to relax. My host Alison was attentive to all my needs.

We stayed at Alison & Dave's for 5 nights and loved every minute of it. On my first night we drank champagne watching the beautiful view of the sunset across Lake Victoria, we could not have found a more idyllic place to stay.
