A short drive away from Entebbe airport. Collected from airport Very friendly staff and comfortable accommodation. An eye to detail and clean, well-kept rooms. Food - a good selection for breakfast (recommend the pineapple pancakes!!). Nothing too much trouble - short walk to Lake Victoria (5 minutes) and within walking distance of Victoria shopping Mall and the Botanical Gardens.

It is very cosy with small, but nice rooms. Breakfast is very good, you can choose from a menu, different juice every morning, different kind of coffee. The maid is coming to clean your room every day, the service level in all at this guesthouse is very high. The ladies are so kind and serviceminded :) Free transfer to the...

The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. We did a lot of hand washing and they let us hang our clothes out to dry on the clothes lines out back. They made sandwiches late one night (after a bad dinner experience at a nearby restaurant where we walked out after waiting an hour with no food)...

Stayed here in 2015 as a stop of on a mission trip. We're collected late at night from the airport. Bottled water on arrival shown to our rooms and offered a snack. Beautiful rooms and breakfast was fresh fruit eggs and bacon. Staff were very friendly

I love it here. I often stop here after being in Uganda, on my way back to the Uk. The ladies here make you very welcome, they are delightful. The room is comfortable and clean and you can get a dayroom if you have an evening flight, with a lift to the airport. The setting is good. It's really near...

Stayed at this hotel in March 2017. The room rates are reasonable for Entebbe and the location is great with a number of Entebbe sites within walking distance. You can walk and explore the restaurants on the side of Lake Victoria, walk to the small mall (where there is a secure ATM) and walk to the Botanical Gardens. The hotel...

The women who greeted us were very friendly and made us feel at home right away. Small place, rooms upstairs are small, we had our own bathroom and two twin beds. It was clean and quiet. The included breakfast was very good. A short walk to the lake.

If you're looking for something beyond the standard business hotel, look no further. We first stayed here 4 years ago, and have returned at least once a year ever since, sometimes twice in one visit to Uganda. This is our home in Entebbe. We could not think of a more comfortable and pampering place to be. Stella and Anna are...

From my first email communication with Anna to our departure at the airport, Anna and her excellent staff took care of us way beyond expectation. She helped me understand the visa process, picked us up at the airport, gave us a lovely welcome and beautiful room at the guest house, and fed us the best food in Entebbe! The location...

I had a 10 hr layover in Entebbe and stayed here. Anna picked me up at the airport and brought me to their guest house. My room was very comfortable. The service was outstanding. Will certainly stay again.
