I recently attended a residential workshop that was held at Laico Lake Victoria Hotel in Entebbe. I liked the hospitality and the service that they rendered to us. What I liked most was their food, it was a great buffet.

Close to the airport, we spent the afternoon and evening there to rest before our flight, late in the evening. There is a huge pool and the rooms are comfortable. It's not warm as the lodges elsewhere in Uganda but it's ok. The food is ok, not more. So nice place to stop before or after a flight.

Are you looking for a last calm rest before taking off at Entebbe airport. That the place to be. A nice terrace with pool and bar..... birds setting down in the trees and bats appear... They serve great Victoria lake perch, being complemented with a cool drink

Overnighted at this hotel prior to flying home. Spacious grounds and pool area provide a resort type atmosphere and there was never a 'cramped for space' feeling.

This hotel is a very romantic spot in Entebbe. Large compound, big swimmingpool, an old colonial building with courtyards. The food - for years now the same menu - is from average to good.
