Located in the heart of Jinja and just a short walk from the Nile, this charming hotel has a tranquil and serene atmosphere and is beautifully decorated with local art and crafts. The pool area is adorned with works by local sculptor, Isuge Peter, and offers a relaxing place to sunbathe with a pool bar and terrace providing the perfect place to enjoy a refreshing drink while lounging on bamboo chairs adorned with animal print cushions. The day begins with a delicious buffet breakfast and in the evenings guests can enjoy a meal in the dining area under an African sky. Boasting friendly service and a warm ambiance, this is the perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area.

The guest is generally fine. We nejoyed the pool, the breakfast and the staff were very helpfull and friendly. We had a big family room and enjoyed the space but the design is not really nice comapred to the rest of the guest house, the room was full of mosquitos, curtains are not lloking nice and making the room look "cheap". I beleive some design effort could have been done. So globally, it's fine but could be improved

This is the second time I am staying at 2friends in 6months and it doesn’t disappoint- the rooms my family occupied (16 and 17) were ideal and well equipped essentials- fluffy towels, insect repellant, beverage corner, decent tv channel options, lovely bathroom and the lemony pool; breakfast and any meal is a highlight- they are the definition of generous and tasty meals with staff who will address any of your whims- I would visit again and recommend it Caution- make sure you take advantage of the online booking discount

This is a lovely place and I wish I had more time here. Very comfortable and clean. Had dinner and breakfast here and both were very good. Internet is great in the rooms and sitting area off of the restaurant. Nice weekend escape from Kampala but Jinga itself doesn’t seem to have much I can recommend. One fellow tourist from Kampala asked why people come to Jinga besides to see the headwaters of the Nile. Ummm, to not be in Kampala?

Very helpful and welcoming staff. Nice location not so far from Jinja central. Good room and easy access to pool. Excellent pizza from adjoining restaurant. I would happily go back here. Plenty of birds to watch; black kites swooping in.

The coziest, friendliest, and most service oriented hotel ever had the pleasure of staying at. Hands down my highest ratings aren’t high enough! From the moment you arrive the atmosphere is inviting and until the moment you leave you will enjoy every moment. I have traveled for over twenty years and have been many places, many hotels from 3stars up, and nothing beats quality service, food, and people. This hotel has a very cozy down to earth feel that embraces your surroundings and is perfect for a weekend or long stay. Enjoy!!

We just had the best holiday at Two friends Jinja. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the service is great, the rooms are very clean and well maintained and the pool and bar are exclusive to residents which makes it very safe especially for families travelling with children. It was money well spent!

Wow a lovely little gem of a place! Travelled from Mukono district from very basic accommodation so this was very welcomed. Check in was quick and easy. Our room was right opposite the pool in a beautiful tropical setting. Straight on a sun lounger with our welcome drink ‘of your choice’, just lovely. Rooms were spacious, clean with large, comfortable beds. Bathrooms were also spacious ( hot shower!) 🙏 painted in giraffe design. All staff just lovely! Good food. Breakfast was a large selection of everything you could want. A good location for the Nile. Loved our stay here, would love to have stayed longer if not just passing through. 😃💕

Lovely guest house set in very pleasant, tropical feeling grounds with a nice bar area and pool. The rooms were very comfortable and clean and the beds were great. Food was very good and there was plenty of variety for dinner and breakfast. We were travelling as a group and the hotel made sure we had a private area for our celebration dinner which was a nice touch. The staff were kind, friendly and approachable. The only downside was that we did have some problems with hot water for the showers but otherwise it was a lovely stay.
