2 Friends Beach Hotel is tastefully decorated with its own creative and unique design situated on the beach front of Lake Victoria (only 10 minutes drive from Entebbe airport). The hotel has 15 spacious rooms and offers a warm and personal service with all necessary facilities for the perfect and comfortable long or short stay. Enjoy your private terrace overlooking the lake or indulge down at our beach with a cold drink or something nice to eat or drink from our popular Beach Cafe. Because of a perfect climate in Uganda, most of our guests find it adequate with our good standing fans. But we have installed state of the art air con in 4 rooms, if you prefer room with air-condition please make that clear when booking (it is an additional 10 USD for AC) and if its available on your preferred dates. We now also have 2 reduced mobility rooms.

We stayed here at the beginning and at the end of our trip and had two very different experiences. The first was the not so good one because we had a room in the main building. The bathroom door didn’t close or lock, the room was small and we could hear people at the outdoor bar at night. The second stay was in the newer tract of the hotel. The room was big, bright and modern. Everything was perfect. The staff is very friendly and the food is fantastic. The breakfast, however, is just ok. The hotel itself is just a few steps from the shores of Lake Victoria. They even have a restaurant on the beach. I really hope they will give a permanent home to the stray cat that keeps coming to the outdoor bar. I’ve stayed at other places in Uganda where they gave cats a home at the hotel and it is lovely. Please give her a home, some water and food. Your guests will love it. Maybe even adopt the dog from next door. He was barking a lot and I felt bad for him. He could use a nice home too!

We stayed 1 night at 2 Friends Beach Hotel along with a late check out the following evening. The grounds were lovely and the beach bar across the street was a great place for cocktails or meals with views of the lake. The staff at the restaurant were great. The room was adequate although nothing like the pictures on the website; there was a view over the pool and out to the lake, but the room was quite small and somewhat dated. I think there is a newer section to the hotel which seems much nicer although I believe both are the same price. There is also airport transportation which was helpful. Overall would recommend the hotel but definitely ask to stay in the newer section.

Stayed here at the end of my trip through Uganda and it was the perfect ending to a fabulous experience. The staff was friendly, as the name suggests, and the accommodations clean and comfortable with the rooms having everything you would need or want. Enjoyed a delicious dinner steps away at the restaurant overlooking the lake. Convenient location for an early morning flight too.

Stayed here for 3 days after a work trip to Uganda and LOVED it. The property is well-constructed and maintained with everything working as it should -- not always the case in Africa, so worth mentioning. The layout is comfortable and pleasant with a partly covered courtyard with a small immaculately kept pool. Just over the road, on the shores of Lake Victoria itself, is a restaurant/bar, with lovely views and comfy couches for lazing away the afternoon, evening, etc. But the the BEST thing about 2 Friends is the STAFF -- they are truly awesome (and I don't use that adjective often!). Friendly, accommodating and well-informed they seem able to deal with anything and can address any request. Far as I am concerned there is only one hotel in Entebbe, and it is 2 Friends. I will be back!

I chose this place because of the ratings - and the name. It is as friendly as it sounds. Right across the street is the restaurant and it is from the same kitchen the breakfast is served. The crew on plane actually recommended the restaurant to us, and had planned on going there the following day. The breakfast is quite good, and you can have freshly cooked eggs as you like them. All staff is friendly and accomodating, and our room(-s both before and after safari) were nice and spacy. The wifi was good after African standards... :-) The hotel is within walking distance to Victoria Mall and only a short drive from the airport. The only downside was that people arrive late and leave early, but if you have earplugs, then you can easily have a good nights sleep.

They were very active to help me get my lost lugagge. Without their help I most possibly might have had to cancel my safari week to the wilderness parks. After phonecalls were not successfull they have organized a very helfull and competent taxi driver who assisted at the airport. Thank U to Patrick and Conrad.

We decided to stay here after a very disappointing stay at Sienna Beach Hotel nearby and we definitely preferred 2Friends. Patrick greeted us with a welcome drink and the food for dinner was very good. The rooms were fine but the lake flies were plentiful (the note educating us about them was greatly appreciated). The breakfast buffet was average. When our airport transport didn't come for us Patrick generously offered the hotel driver to take us to the airport and he was amazingly helpful and educated in navigating the Entebbe airport. Overall I would recommend to stay here when in Entebbe. The hotel is very close to the lake and they have a bar/grill associated with the hotel that appeared to be right on the lake.

If the best things come in small packages, then 2 Friends would be the reason. The hotel is not only comfortable and clean - but the real beauty is its quaint charm. Airport pickup was seedless and the short ride was welcome after a long flight. From the pool to the lakeside bar, the staff are absolutely lovely. The 15 rooms are divine with comfortable beds, hot showers, clean standards and DSTV. The breakfast is fabulous, the coffee decent and all other meals great. We stayed for 3 nights and cannot fault a thing. I will not hesitate to stay again and again.

Amazing, what a friendly and welcoming place. Rooms were comfortable and clean, the location was great, there was a nice pool and outdoor area to hang out. The ultimate standout were the staff, they were so friendly. Patrick in particular made our stay a delight. Highly recommend

I stayed at 2 Friends for the first two nights of my stay in Uganda before Gorilla trekking and then the last 2 nights before heading home. I felt right at home immediately with Claire, Patrick, Rebecca and Florence who welcomed me so warmly. My room had a view of the pool and Lake Victoria and was very comfortable. While I was away trekking I was able to leave a bag without charge which was much appreciated. Upon my return they greeted me like a long lost relative which made me feel even more welcome as a solo traveler. I ate at their beachside restaurant and by the pool on multiple occasions and appreciated the food was good and reasonably priced. Wish we were closer so I could visit again. Location was convenient for the airport - only 10 minutes away. They offer complimentary one way transport to or from the airport and a reasonable charge for the opposite direction.
