I enjoyed my short stay at the Lake Vic. The room while not large, was clean and quiet even though it fronted the pool. It is very much a European type room with adjoined twin beds but the bathroom was large, modern and had a full tub. The pool is huge and has diving platforms. All the nice hotels in... More

The hotel is very pleasant - a good bar, decent food and a large swimming pool. Service from the staff was very good and friendly. The transfer service to and from the airport was efficient and ran early morning (06:00) too. The room was large enough and well equipped. A local newspapers was also provided every day. The only problem... More

This place is great for a stop over while passing through Entebbe. Nothing spectacular, just average. Location. Conveniently located near the airport, it takes 10 mins and they run a shuttle service. Buildings. The buildings are clean and tidy, but no effort seems to be made to make it anything other than average. Most walls are bare with no character.... More

This hotel is easy to find, looks impressive from outside and is very conveniently situated if you need to get to the airport. We checked in for two days for some much-needed R&R on our trip from Cape Town to Cairo. The asking price of $230 per night is pretty expensive but we wanted to spoil ourselves for a couple... More

Stayed at Lake Victoria hotel before flight out of Uganda. Beautifully landscaped grounds and awesome swimming pool. Very relaxing to eat at the pool and cool off. Room had very nice bathroom, but carpet could have been updated. Checking in was slow and staff not very nice compared to all the gracious people we met during our travels through Uganda.... More

Only spent 5 hours here, but asides from the very slow check in, and the long walk to the room, i was generally impressed with this place. Rooms were ok, with good bathroom, and breakfast decent. Pool very nice and decor all good.

Awful, simply awful. Upon arrival you expect something lovely - great building, big reception, big bar and restaurant, lovely grounds, superb views, all well maintained. But that is it. Even the view does not add a star. After waiting an hour for a bottle of wine on room service, we got the wrong wine after trying a further two times.... More

This is the most popular spot in Entebbe and a decent stay but it's a little bit out dated. Needs renovation. The food is good and the pool is nice and relaxing. The location is central to all of Entebbe.

I spent one night at the Lake Victoria Hotel during my layover in Entebbe. In total, I thought my stay was suitable for one night. The grounds of the hotel are very modern and nice (good location too, close to the airport). The staff I dealt with was pretty good. Although, the cashier I worked with during check-out was quite...

First of all, I recommend ignoring the previous 2 reviews which are probably from competing establishments. This is an excellent hotel. I was booked in here after being evacuated from South Sudan. The hotel is very smart and is set in beautiful grounds. Lots of different trees and birds to watch. The restaurants have lovely views over the trees and... More
