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. The architecture is in a colonial style with several wings spreading out from the reception area. My room overlooked the gardens and was on the ground floor. It was on the larger than... More

My organization held a workshop at this hotel and the experience was not very good unfortunately :( ! The staff are disorganized and do not pay any attention to detail. They just seem to be going through the motions of working in a hotel with an I don't care attitude to their work. "Service Delivery" is one of the most... More

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. Rooms are overall good and internet is slow but free wifi everywhere. But nothing in this hotel runs smoothly, from telphone-service, to room-servie delivery, brakfast presentation... More

Dont arrive as a mixed couple as they are racist. Any black woman seemingly must be a prostitute in their eyes which makes me wonder about their own staff.

The hotel is just about perfect for me. It's very well located (Entebbe is small enough to be close to everywhere). It has character. It has beautiful pool with diving tower. Staff are extremely friendly and competent. Breakfast is sumptuous and starts early. Most of the rooms are large and well appointed. Security is pretty good and unobtrusive. There are... More
