For work I have been in this hotel quiet some times. Fortunately I see the hotel improving. Breakfast has more variety and is improved. The gym also got a facelift. Only thing here you need is a working airco and some maintenance on the (new) cardio equipment. The rooms (specially) the bathrooms can use a little uplift as well but...

What a beautiful place! Tonight we're enjoying an amazing african night sitting on the porch of the hotel.

I recently attended a residential workshop that was held at Laico Lake Victoria Hotel in Entebbe. I liked the hospitality and the service that they rendered to us. What I liked most was their food, it was a great buffet.

Close to the airport, we spent the afternoon and evening there to rest before our flight, late in the evening. There is a huge pool and the rooms are comfortable. It's not warm as the lodges elsewhere in Uganda but it's ok. The food is ok, not more. So nice place to stop before or after a flight.
