Excellent location if you are arriving late in Entebbe (or Kampala) or need to stay overnight before an early flight from Entebbe. Also a great location from which to take a short (half day) trip to the swamps to view the rare Shoebill Stork. The staff of this small hotel was very accomodating. We arrived about midnight, but they had waited up in case we wanted a late dinner (we did) or a drink (we did). They told us they always wait up as long as guests may need them.
The location felt very secure (walled, with a guard), the rooms were comfortable (no air conditioning, but the climate is moderate enough that fans make you comfortable), the pool area was attractive, and the food was very good.
One word of warning -- they only take cash, and there is no anytime teller on the premises, although there is one a short drive away. So, bring your cash, which is true many places in Uganda.
