Travelers' Choice
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 at the 2 friends beach hotel for one night and were lucky enough to enjoy this hotel for a full day. The team tries very hard, the facility is totally beautiful and exotic. Right in front of the hotel is the great lake Viktoria with its own bar and restaurant. Food is great. The view is simply fantastic. I recommend the lake view room, absolutely great "will be back" Danny and Jasmina

Spacious, clean rooms with comfortable big bed. Atmosphere in this small hotel is the best, specially now in curfewtimes. U gather with other guests in recepionbar in evenings nd get to know many other people. Service nd the friendly staff top notch. I would say best value for money in Entebbe by far. Location by the lake also outstanding. Please keep up your good job, I will be back!

Just coming to the end of a 5 day honeymoon stay at 2 Friends Entebbe. We had planned to travel to Zanzibar but Covid restrictions meant we had to stay in Uganda. This turned out to be a good thing. We cannot speak highly enough of the service and care we have received from the time we first made our booking and from the moment we arrived at 2 Friends. Our room (room #4) was spacious and very comfortable. It also had a large veranda with views of both the pool and the lake. Meals have been excellent, wifi connectivity very good and every request we have made has been dealt with in an efficient and smiling manner. It has been very pleasant to either relax around the pool area or in the beach bar area across the street. The location is very good. Lakeside frontage, less than 10 minutes walk from Victoria Mall and not too much further to Entebbe botanical gardens. The staff have been all been wonderful and helpful. A particular thank you to Patrick and Finah who have done so much to make our stay an enjoyable one.
