Reviewed December 19, 2012

Perfect place if you want somewhere to stay before or after a flight from EBB! Staff are really friendly and go out their way to meet your needs!

Great bonus is the free airport pickup. Our flight arrived 2 hours late and it was 3am by the time we had left baggage reclaim. No problem though - a quick call and the wonderful John came and picked us up straight away.

Will definitely return here when next fly into EBB rather than trecking into Kampala after a long flight!

We recently stayed at the J Residence upon arriving in Uganda. Our driver, John, was promptly awaiting our arrival and drove us to the hotel. The hotel is a bit off the beaten path, but is very secure. The room was clean and simple. The morning breakfast was fresh and the coffe was brewed, not instant. Service in whole was very good. We looked at several hotels and settled on the J Residence due to their standing on Tripadvisor. Our stay was brief, but was pleasant and we would stay again if needed.

This relatively new 'motel' just off the main Kampala/Entebbe road is a great place to stopover either if arriving into Uganda/leaving. The welcome is second to none, and is a professional run outfit. The staff and team are keen to help with all needs and will strive to do this for you. The rates are great and the breakfast was excellent.

We stayed here on our last night in Uganda following a fairly hectic trip to see projects we support near Mbale. From the moment we arrived in the morning to drop off our luggage before heading to the Wildlife Centre we were treated with courtesy, efficiency and kindness. We were able to put our bags in our rooms and have a cool drink on the terrace. Arriving back later in the afternoon we enjoyed a peaceful couple of hours before a very tasty evening meal. The menu wasn't extensive and we had to pre order but it was very well cooked and (amazingly) arrived on time! The bedrooms were excellent - clean and comfy - and the 5 am breakfast a real treat before heading to the airport. It felt as though we were guests in someone's home and having travelled many times to Uganda it was lovely to find somewhere in Entebbe to which we'll hopefully return. Thank you to John and your staff for an excellent experience.

After landing we stayed 1 night, whilst waiting for our friends to fly in. Great base, clean and very welcoming. They couldn't do enough for us.... Even when power cut at 6am they were up starting the generator & preparing our breakfast....
Highly recommended...

Room Tip: Ask for John the owner....

John gave my daughter Victoria and me a super welcome to his relaxed, clean, friendly and very recently refurbished establishment.

we arrived one evening and had to leave the next morning at 3.30, in order to catch a flight to Harare (vis Nairobi). Nothing was too much trouble for our host and we enjoyed our short relax after a three-week tour of Uganda.

airport transfers are free and it took less than ten minutes to get to the airport at Entebbe - far better than a long journey from Kampala, especially if time is important.

i would not hesitate to recommend John's home-from-home and would happily stay there again.
