A friend had recommended this place to stay on arrival into Entebbe and before having to go on into Kampala.
Very glad I did stay here. A very nice value with very nice service.
The rooms are nice with nice big shower heads and hot water. TV, fans, etc. as well.
The gardens are very nice, the food good and service friendly.
One way transport for free was very nice as we had a very early departure and the driver was right on time taking us.

My change of plan from two days reservation to four was due to the friendly staff and environment in addition to top end services provided.Hotel located in a perfect place free from any noise,security guaranteed,free single transport either to or from the airport at no extra cost.Above all is the beautiful garden not forgetting the delicious breakfasts.

Pros - nice garden to sit and relax in, good dinner from the restaurant (but see cons below for concers about the kitchen). Very close to the airport with free transfers.

Cons - room and bathroom were very pokey and quite dated. Other guests drinking in the garden were very noisy and you can hear the tv's from other rooms. We were provided with a packed breakfast as we had an early flight - the bread had areas of green mould on the crust....

There were lots of other hotels in the area so I would look elsewhere.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for your comments and please accept our sincere apologies for the inconvenience encountered. We believe that since it was during the xmas days people were a bit relaxed and may somehow have been noisier than usual, and also, a neighbor had a party on that day. We wish you had brought forward the complain at that time giving us a chance to handle it. The bread issue is more alarming to us, especially since so many other people have given us positive comments on our fresh bread and the varieties of it. We have, immediately, put in place a new system that we trust shall avoid any such inconveniences for the future.
Once again very sorry for the inconvenience and please allow us to once again invite you as a guest next time you are in Entebbe. We will not disappoint you.

I stayed for two nights last month and thought this place was quite good.

It felt secure, the restaurant was good and the rooms, although small, clean and comfortable.

I had an early morning flight but they still supplied hot tea and coffee which I thought was quite a nice touch.

10 minute walk from Entebbe - take a torch if you plan to stay out late!

I have visited this hotel a couple of times and whenever I have been there I find the same serenity, cleanliness and warmth that these people share. Every time i was a sole traveler and booked it in advance as usually it is full. The rooms were very clean with crisp white bed sheets and clean bathrooms. At one instance i noticed few ants in my room which I informed the reception for which they took corrective action and were really apologetic for the same. The breakfast is also good with a fruit salad, choice of muesli, eggs, breads and ham and bacon. The full aura of the place is so refreshing. If you have some time for yourself do visit the botanical garden and the Entebbe Zoo. Both the places are worth a visit.
