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.

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.
