The hotel is in a beautiful location. The room was huge and it had air conditioning that worked. The WiFi only works in the lobby, and they disconnect you as soon as you turn in your key, so if you have to wait for transportation don’t turn in your key until the last minute. The faucet in the tub ran all night. The shower only had hot water. Boiling hot. Overall I’m glad I wasn’t paying for it.

I want to start off by saying the hotel is not that bad, but service is lacking here. The rooms are big, and even though I had no problems with my room, my 9 other business travelers did. Cold showers, broken AC, and even a security issue. The bar tenders don’t know how to mix drinks, only serve shots. The food was subpar but eatable. The facility is run down, not updated at all. The pool & beach area were ok, but I did not use them. The fitness center was awful, I should have gotten a tetanus shot when I arrived home. The sauna was great. On the day we departed, I left my oral night guard in my room. I tried several times to contact my sweet, helpful housekeeper with no luck. The front desk failed to understand the importance of this device, and I really don’t think they cared to look for it. Currently 12 of us are waiting for a one night refund as we needed to check out because of an early departure from Uganda. This is unacceptable, I have emailed the main customer service link with no response. If you can, stay somewhere else. There are other lovely hotels in Entebbe, go find one ( the Portea is grand!)

Attended a workshop there (including accommodation). Whoever I spoke to reported broken bathroom fixtures. Not yet substantial, but in five years the place will be run down. Only one elevator working. In the evenings power goes frequently off and on. The building is clad in foil-coated aluminum, the blue plastic foil started coming off at many spots. Room 547 is to be avoided, a rat was living inside a drawer. Not a mouse, a real big rat. No apologies from the staff when the guest reported this. The lake side bar plays music way to loud for a nice evening on the beach. Bad value for money.

PROS. Located on shores of Lake Victoria with beautiful garden between the hotel and the narrow sandy beach where there are places for grilled food and drinks. Beautiful internal lobby, nice view from restaurant, quiet neighborhood, lush with many trees and birds. In room: spacious room and bathroom, quiet AC, good international channels on TV, good lights and electrical outlets, good view of garden and trees in front of lake; friendly staff CONS. Poor buffet breakfast; Very slow (<1Mbs) and unreliable, problematic internet; poor and expensive food in hotel restaurant (eat at local places in town or at beach in front of hotel), had to request hair dryer and mini-fridge in room; no fruit or water, bathrobe, slippers, room service menu, info in room; room is spacious but half of it empty of furniture; located far from town - need taxi - and no nearby shops except those inside hotel compound (expensive); very noise on weekend with blasting DJ music and many locals; must go outside to walk through the garden to reach pool that is not close to hotel; everything in hotel is unreasonably expensive compared to outside. Must pay in advance instead of at end of your stay - means they do not trust their guests!!!! In general, a poor value hotel for what you pay for and what you receive. TIPS. Ask for room with garden and lake view; use Uber for transport to town (ask someone to buy a local SIM for you); eat locally in town or at beach bars; do not stay here if you want to be close to shops and town (there is an Imperial branch in town near the Imperial Mall for this)
