We stayed here two nights and enjoyed it. Staff is friendly and helpful. The guest house is along a quiet road and rooms are surrounded by a garden so it's a good place to relax in. You can easily walk to the lake. At usd 65 for a double, including breakfast and airport pick-up it's great value for money. Also... More

This is solely based on the main house experience we had. I have no idea how the bandas are, but they are probably better. I hope they are. The rooms only have a bed and a desk and chair. If you are used to or are looking for other amenities you will be disappointed. My room's toilet was shabby. broken... More

I spent 5 nights at the guest house on a business trip. Its setting, overlooking the lake in a beautiful garden with incredible birding and in a quiet part of town, makes this a great venue to relax in after a busy day. The team are great and incredibly accommodating, always with a smile. The food was also super and... More

This is a wonderful oasis from the chaos of Kampala and an ideal place to take some time out before moving on. The hotel is quiet, except for some annoying barking by stray or guard dogs at night, has excellent views and the little round thatched cottages are cute. The rooms are large enough, reasonably well furnished and there is... More

What a charming place and a great find in Entebbe As can be seen from other reviewers the guesthouse is run by a group of charming Ugandan ladies who are an inspiration to many. My first few days were in the main house in the large Ibis room, it is a large room with 3 separate beds and a large... More

A favorite guest house, made more so after dealing with epic jam in Kampala after long journey from Kabale. Florence greeted us as we arrived very late. An enchanting guest house, quiet and peaceful. Meals are delicious and quickly consumed. Nice view of Lake Victoria and Intl airport. I like it here...

I have stayed here a couple of times and I'm certain I will return. You can always be guaranteed a warm welcome and a good sturdy breakfast at the Lake Victoria view guest house. I've always stayed in the main house and find the rooms to be clean and comfortable with well maintained bed nets. The bathroom is shared and... More

This place is wonderful. Safe, clean and very beautifully decorated. The staff is super friendly and the quiet garden is a very nice place to relax. Food is available for breakfast, lunch and dinner and you can even ask for local specialities. The view to the lake is excellent. Airport is just 5-10 minutes away.

Visited Entebbe in October 2015 for a 10 night stay. Florence, Justine and the staff did their best to accommodate all of our needs - including cooking vegan pancakes for breakfast and vegetable curry for dinner. The location was beautiful- great view of Lake Victoria, in a quiet area, within walking distance to 2 restaurants and a bar. Victoria Mall,... More
