I stayed for 2 nights early January 2014. I was met at the airport by the hotel's very friendly staff, unfortunately forgot their names. The hotel is situated in a very quite suburb. One down point was that they do not have a swimming pool. Service at the restaurant was excellent, but I was the only one there so I... More

The hotel is tucked away but is great for getting to the airport for a flight. We had been in Uganda for two weeks and used this before an early morning flight back to the UK. Good rooms great showers. Food good but a bit expensive. Good breakfast and a free shuttle to the airport.

The good news first: our room was huge with a very comfortable bed with full mosquito net (okay, so I'm a fanatic on that subject), and electrical outlets galore. The garden is a nice location for an outside dinner or just a drink. The dining room/bar also is very pleasant. And the second-floor terrace, which a friendly staff member showed... More

Lovely rooms in hard to find location. We stayed 2 nights. Food slow, you need to order bkfst night before. The room was huge. Mostly quiet but big party kept us up 2nd night. Drinks on the upper deck lovely. Everyone very nice. No airport noise.

I stayed at the Airport View for one night ( evening arrival, early morning departure to Kisoro ), and was perfectly satisfied with the service received. The transfer from the airport was waiting for me, and free of charge - and takes 5-10 minutes - definite bonus. Decent beer & a cheeseburger was all that was required in the evening,... More

It's the only hotel I've used in Entebbe (and I stayed there for a month last October) so rather difficult to compare it with anything else locally. I'd summarise it as small, family-owned and managed - very much 'hands on' - with friendly and attentive staff. The food was always worth waiting for because it's freshly prepared and I hold... More

The hotel is nice enough for sure, but the rooms on the lower floor were dark and gloomy. The staff tried hard but really seemed to need closer management or better training to really get on top of their game. We cut our stay short and moved to a guesthouse for cheaper, better accommodation and service. I guess it wasn't... More

We booked this higher-priced hotel as this was our first night in Uganda and we wanted tp make sure of a good experience. However, subsequent accommodation used in Entebbe during our six days there demonstrated to us that it was not good value at $150 for a double room. The room was pleasant and looked onto the small garden, but... More
