This hotel offers solid, basic accommodation at a good price. It's very close to the airport, so is quite convenient for short stays. All of the staff are welcoming, kind and courteous, and will make an effort to ensure that you are comfortable. The food on offer is quite good for the price.

We stayed 3 nights at the guesthouse - the staff was great and helpful. The rooms a bit tiny. It seemed to be quiet but at night we could here drumming and music from somewhere cose until 3 pm. Breakast was on a little terrace from where we could watch the birds. Gym with pool a few steps further -...

My friend and I had a 9 day stay. The rooms were clean. We felt very safe staying there. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The gardens were beautiful and very relaxing. Will definitely stay there on our next trip.

A nice hotel with separate cottages with shower and toilet. There is also a nice garden with a lot of birds and a restaurant. The surrounding is nice but not very interesting. It is almost impossible to see Victoria Lake.

My wife and I, along with a small team, recently stayed at the Lake Victoria View. The neat clean rooms are built to resemble the Ugandan mud huts that are so prevalent in the country. The room has a fan, a toilet with a shower and hot water. The food is good, and the staff is very friendly and helpful....

We stayed here two nights and enjoyed it. Staff is friendly and helpful. The guest house is along a quiet road and rooms are surrounded by a garden so it's a good place to relax in. You can easily walk to the lake. At usd 65 for a double, including breakfast and airport pick-up it's great value for money. Also...

This is solely based on the main house experience we had. I have no idea how the bandas are, but they are probably better. I hope they are. The rooms only have a bed and a desk and chair. If you are used to or are looking for other amenities you will be disappointed. My room's toilet was shabby. broken...

I spent 5 nights at the guest house on a business trip. Its setting, overlooking the lake in a beautiful garden with incredible birding and in a quiet part of town, makes this a great venue to relax in after a busy day. The team are great and incredibly accommodating, always with a smile. The food was also super and...

This is a wonderful oasis from the chaos of Kampala and an ideal place to take some time out before moving on. The hotel is quiet, except for some annoying barking by stray or guard dogs at night, has excellent views and the little round thatched cottages are cute. The rooms are large enough, reasonably well furnished and there is...

What a charming place and a great find in Entebbe As can be seen from other reviewers the guesthouse is run by a group of charming Ugandan ladies who are an inspiration to many. My first few days were in the main house in the large Ibis room, it is a large room with 3 separate beds and a large...
