I stayed for 2 nights and couldn't fault the place. I was picked up from the airport for no charge and then taken back again when I left. I left before breakfast started but I was asked if I wanted my breakfast early so I ordered it the night before. The staff were really helpful and I had a very... More

I arrived late and departed relatively early so my experiences are accordingly limited. I had a nice room which was off the main lounge/reception area. Unfortunately, this allowed me to hear some noise although that said, I am a light sleeper. Breakfast, which was cooked to order, was very good. The staff were excellent, with Rachel, the owner, even assisting... More

This small B&B was a lovely place to spend the night while in Entebbe. It is located very near to the airport and close to Lake Victoria and the Botanical Gardens. The service was excellent, our room was comfortable and dinner under the stars was beautiful

Very close to the airport, friendly service and reliable taxiservice even during the night. Good milkshakes 24/7 and a tasteful fruit platter if you need a healthy snack. This place also knows how to find activities nearby (bikes, golf etc.).

I had heard about this place from a friend and thought I'd check it out on my way to the airport. I'm so glad I did. The food was really delicious - I had guacamole with the tastiest avocados followed by beef tostadas - delicious! The hospitality was really welcoming especially as I was on my own. Thanks Rachel and... More

My second visit to Entebbe and Carpe Diem still exceeds expectations. It has a wonderful view of the lake, amazing atmosphere, friendly staff and fantastic food. It is a must to all travellers - even if you do not stay here to at least come enjoy sundowners and home cooked meals.

Wow, this place is perfect. We were there for 5 nights, beautiful view of the lake, lovely and really peaceful place. The food is excellent and the garden is perfect to relax in couple, alone or with friends/colleagues. Rooms are clean, modern and you have intimacy. Food is delicious and they offer a great variety! We will definitely come back

My coworkers and I always stay at Carpe Diem when we transit through Entebbe. It's close to the airport, lovely and peaceful setting, great food, comfortable beds, helpful and friendly staff. And a very fair price as well. Would recommend it to anyone!

This was a super guesthouse with a lovely garden and a restaurant with a great view. Lots of attention to detail, great service and helpful staff. My room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. I'd definitely stay here again.
