This is a great place to say with a lovely pool, beach area and friendly staff. Food and drink were a touch expensive and our safe wouldn't work but management offered us another room! Can't argue with that. Would stay again. Warning: the laundry costs are extortionate!

I could not agree more with all the wonderful reviews. Nice location, cozy atmosphere, nice spacious rooms and everything is very neat and clean. Staff is amazingly friendly, WiFi is rock solid both in the rooms and in the lobby (somewhere also outside the property!). And a great view over the lake. I had a wonderful stay!

Stayed overnight on a layover, and in a day room while waiting for late night flight out of Entebbe. Both stays were great. Shuttle service to/from airport. Complimentary drink upon arrival. Friendly staff. Good food in the restaurant. Don't miss the gate in the back leading out to Lake Victoria! Take a walk...explore...hang out at the beach and/or restaurants/bars lakefront.

Everything was just perfect. Staff was very friendly and worked very quickly, the room was in a high quality and the breakfast was very good. The view to the lake was fantastic. The food at the restaurant was good but there are also very good restaurants in the neighbourhood. The big Victoria Mall center was a very nice visit and... More
