It has been 4 hours since I checked in and it was enough to decide it is the worst hotel I have ever stayed by far. It's too old and all the staff in the room are worn and torn. There was missing the remote unit of a/c and then they brought. Wifi is not stable and not working most... More

To avoid the variability of the drive from Kampala and sleep a little longer, we stayed here one night before our 7am flight back to Joburg. We truly enjoyed this hotel as our last night in Uganda.

I checked into the hotel after midnight and got a very homely reception from the staff. The rooms are large and beautifully arranged, with lovely inner lawns to relax during the day. Good food (a compromising blend of African and English) and soothing lounges. If only guests could have sandals in the rooms...

We have stayed numerous times over the years. Definitely the best overnight stay for airport departures and arrivals. Olde Africa charm. Huge pool, very good food (veranda buffet is plentiful with tasty local dishes), nice rooms, shuttle bus service. Resident discount.

Thus far this is my favorite place in Entebbe, where I have stayed a lot for work. This is one of those somewhat grand colonial places one finds everywhere the British have meddled.
