Had a very comfortable stay at the Thames Hotel. From the start, with a prompt pickup from the airport, clean and spacious rooms, and excellent food, the staff were always making sure we were comfortable. It was also nice to have hot water and wifi access through the hotel. I recommend the Thames Hotel for anyone visiting or passing through...

I frequently pass through Entebbe for work. Each time, I stay at Thames Hotel. The staff are very kind and accommodating. Rooms are basic and comfortable, with reliable hot water. Wifi is usually available as well. Airport pickup and dropoff is reliable. I highly recommend this hotel as a terrific affordable option.

We had a lovely time at Thames hotel. We were picked up from the airport with no difficulties. We were served a delicious and hearty dinner (you can order it in advance). There is hot water available, and free wifi. Because it is off of the main road, it is nice and quiet. We had another hearty breakfast before leaving...

I stayed here for 2 nights – the night upon my arrival to Uganda and the night prior to my return to Ireland. Being a mere 15-minute drive from Uganda’s only international airport makes this budget-friendly hotel an ideal choice. The shuttle/taxi provided free of charge by the hotel to and from the airport is a huge added bonus. Rooms...

A benchmark by what all other hotels should be aiming for in terms of staff friendliness, amenities and the free Airport transfer was very helpful.

The hotel has very nice staff who are willing to go out of their way to satisfy. Also, the transfer to the Airport was free, which was nice. However, the hotel services are not really worth the rate. There is no nice place outside to relax, so one is forced to remain within the room. The TV had no signal,...
