After years of seeing this hotel on the way to Kampala I finally stayed there for a night visiting friends. The hotel itself is beautiful and the grounds are also well kept.

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.
