“wonderful green oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

I have found it to be a great value, with friendly staff, nice clean rooms, and great airport pick-up&drop off service. Very nice garden with lots of birds and greenery everywhere, lovely dinner outside in light of gas lanterns with glorious food.
Convenient location in an wonderful residential area .

Really impressed with this little hotel - very close to airport, and we weren't excepting a great deal. However, it's just delightful - a little garden where you can eat dinner, a small bar / restaurant area and the room are a decent size with ok facilities.

Don't let the name put you off - this is actually quite a nice place to stay and plenty of places to relax, sit and read or have a beer. Staff friendly and good value for money

Room Tip: We stayed twice, both times in rooms on the garden. Wifi doesn't reach that far into the garden...

The airport guesthouse is close to Entebbe airport. That's easy when you arrive at Uganda or leave it. We stayed here on the first day of our vacation and at the last day we had a "dayroom" cause we had to get back at the airport at 09.00pm. Perfect: you can shower, have dinner .... The staff is friendly, food is good. They accept uganda shilling, US dollars and Euro. Need a place close to the airport, don't think long about it: book the airport guesthouse!

As many others have done, we stayed here for one night to avoid any last minute dramas getting to the airport. Having stayed in some pretty humble accomodation elsewhere in Uganda, this felt like a welcome return to civilisation... hot water, cold beer and excellent food. The free airport shuttle service is helpful; rooms are lovely and perfectly adequate for a short stay.

As others have alluded to, your impression of the place may well be coloured by the other guests staying. Unfortunately we had the less considerate types but you can't blame the guesthouse for a North American mother speaking VERY LOUDLY to her children outside our door at an unsociable hour of the morning...

We had an early arrival into Entebbe and to allow for possible hitches in flights etc., chose to rest up here for two nights although night one did not start until 5.am on Day 2. No matter. The meet and greet worked well and we were soon tucked up in our rooms. We arrived quietly so as not to disturb other guests and how we wish others did the same next day. Not the Guest house's fault.
The rooms were just right for our stay. Situated in pleasant gardens a short walk to the Restaurant area they were fully fitted out and clean. Meals were well prepared and the Beer was cold.
Friendly staff completed the requirements.
The planned for hitch did not happen, it rarely does, so we had lots of time to make short trips to the town for cash and consumables and a walk in the Botanical Gardens nearby. Being keen birders, sad I know, we got our trip list off to a good start without leaving the grounds. Even Barn Owls roosting above the BBQ area.
We liked this friendly place a lot and highly recommend it.

This was a return visit to this lovely guest house in a quiet part of Entebbe. We stayed a few nights and found the staff so friendly. We had a comfortable double room with huge bed (at least 6ft) like a four poster with a new mosquito net. The room has a veranda where you could sit and look out on the garden while enjoying a pot of afternoon tea. In the evening, they served an excellent 3 course meal, soup, main course and a fruit platter and the quality and quantity was good. Entebbe seems to have a growing number of small guest houses but, having stayed in several of the others, we reckon Airport Guest House is the best value and we will definitely return if we can. Unfortunately, it is often fully booked so book early.

We stayed at the Airport Guesthouse on several occasions during our tour of Uganda. We found it to be a great value, with friendly, accommodating staff, nice clean rooms, and great airport pick-up and drop off service. Nice grounds with lots of birds, dinner outside under the stars, convenient location, welcoming staff, again a great value for a stopover in Entebbe.
