This Hotel had everything you need. Clean, comfortable rooms and great staff but it has a very noisy bar close by. The loud music can be heard in the rooms so bring your ear plugs! The food is superb and the restaurant in the beach is a lovely spot.

Dear guest, I am so sorry to hear about your experience, yet happy that you communicated this to us. We have spoken to the neighbor who was playing the music way too loud and he has turned down the volume significantly. If he should continue to bother our guests, we will have to take up the issue with the council.... More

This hotel was our home base for a couple of nights at the start and end of our tour in Uganda. Nice location, near the airport and away from the hectic city of Kampala. The room was comfortable, plenty of space with a fan, no A/C. The breakfast selection was excellent. There was a leak in the bathroom sink that... More

We booked for one night stay prior to going on Safari. We had previously stayed at one of the best rated guest houses in Entebbe and whilst 2 Friends did have a pool and access to the beach the whole experience fell short of our time at the Guest House. Our stay didn't start well when we arrived at the... More

I ate at the restaurant by the lake and it was pretty good. Friendly and relaxing environment with good food. I had the BBQ glazed pork ribs and they had good flavor. Food came out in 20 minutes which great considering people out here take their time in everything. They have these bamboo type beach chairs for you to relax... More

We began our Ugandan vacation at Two Friends in Entebbe. Our stay was more than I could have asked for. Although we initially intended to stay for two nights, a cancelled flight to Entebbe changed our plans. We were met at the airport by their driver the following morning and it was all great from that point on. We arrived... More

We stayed at 2 Friends both on arrival from south Africa and before flying home to California. Their beach restaurant was very nice (with the same menu at the hotel) and the lake breeze was enjoyable. Rooms were very clean with a fridge for cold bottled water. The shower was hot, but took awhile to get there. Do watch out... More

A quite little hotel tucked away in a quiet neighbourhood by the lake with a lovely private beach. Personnel were very friendly. The room was well furnished and sizeable. The bathroom was large and water pressure was high (Thank God!). The room service was excellent. The mebu was international was well as local(skip the Swedish meatballs and try the lake... More
