This hotel is far from 4*. The staff is very slow, I was waiting cleaning staff 1 hour 30 minutes! Woman from reception was not friendly. The food in restourant is time to time convinient to eat. I think it depends on cook's mood. But anyway the breakfast is very good and swimming pool area is beautiful.

We stayed in budget accommodation in Entebbe but were able to pay 20thou (£5) to use the swimming pool as day guests! We spent two whole days at the pool, which is MASSIVE and very refreshing in the midday equatorial heat! There's diving boards to jump off and more than enough sun loungers to go around. The hotel provides towels... More

Stayed with two friends of mine for the weekend and we all agreed that this is the best hotel in Entebbe so far. Mostly we've chosen this hotel because of the swimming pool and many different facilities but it turned out that we were spending only late evenings and nights in the hotel. I must say we did a lot... More

We stayed to be near the airport and to have a respite from our basic accommodations the previous week. It was less expensive to book on the hotel's website than through some of the other websites($50 cheaper per night). The personnel were very accommodating and went out of the way to help. The rooms were fine; the TV worked with... More

Stay with my family over the weekend, must say a well maintained hotel which has very good view of lake Victoria. Rooms are good, food was fresh and tasty. Swimming pool was well maintained. Over experience was fine but comparatively a bit expensive than other star hotels.
