Too bad this was only for a night, but surely worth many more days. The hotel and surroundings is very nice. The checkin was quick and you felt the good service right away. The rooms are average, but the view from the balcony is great with view to Victoria Lake. The pool is the "common" Serena style. The difference between... More

Serena is in a class of its own. Everything about the hotel is a great story to tell. It was not my first time there, as I have been there so many times and yet I still marvel at what the hotel offers.

My wife and I spent a great weekend at lake Vic Serena. Great location and excellent views and facilities. The pool and poolside bar were brilliant and would be an excellent venue for kids too. Relaxing and tranquil. Hopefully we'll be back some day with friends.

We spent 2 nights at this lovely hotel. It really feels you are far from the city. The roads to the hotel are not tarred completely. The hotel is expensive and so too the restaurant. It didn't seem like you had many dining choices outside of hotel. Lovely setting on the river and the conference facilities are really good.

The Lake Victoria Serena is a gorgeous place for a weekend-getaway, or a longer stay. Upon arrival the staff were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. We were quickly able to check in and were guided to our villas. My room had a little patio overlooking Lake Victoria (albeit a bit in the distance). The room was very spacious, comfy, air-conditioned, well-decorated,... More
