I arrived here after being in a hospital for a quiet stay to recover after an unfortunate illness that left me dehydrated and very weak. Even though i told the staff I was ill and it was apparent, they would not allow a friend to check in on me because "visitors are not allowed in the rooms". I did not... More

Went here to spend the day to relax by the pool and have food. Very nice hotel with helpful staff. Use of pool is around £4 for the day. Towel is included in that price. Food and drinks were expensive by ugandan standards but still reasonable. We were able to put our luggage in a holding room which was helpful... More

The hotel has good air conditioning and a fabulous 30 metre pool with a 10 metre diving board. Food is OK , Wifi is intermittent (better near reception). Breakfast is excellant The hotel is let down by staff who appear to be bored by the clientele. Unlike other places in Uganda, it is rare to see a smile.

This is probably the oldest hotel in Entebbe, but there has been enough renovation work and maintenance, so the room is quite confortable -the bed perhaps a bit too hard for some-. Bathroom, linen, are clean. The room had been sprayed for mosquitoes. Breakfast available since very early in the morning, with relatively good food. Staff is friendly. Location is... More

It's a hotel rated as 3 star. It's not at the lake so you will not see the beach of Lake Victoria while there. But they have one of the biggest swimming pool that you could dive into. It's really a clean pool and it has guests who are not necessarily residents of the hotel. The rooms are the standard... More

Stayed one night after being picked up by the hotel airport shuttle which seemed to give preference to international rather than local arrivals. Disappointing not to be able to see the lake from the Hotel-options given at the front desk-40 minutes walk or a taxi ride to see the lake. Security was also mentioned. Opted instead to have a facial... More
