Food is below average, that is if they do have what you order from the menu. Set menu but after my 4th attempt they actually had the dish available. Good rate at the hotel but consider eating outside the hotel. Nice pool and lawns. Just okay

The hotel has good air conditioning and a fabulous 30 metre pool with a 10 metre diving board. Food is OK , Wifi is intermittent (better near reception). Breakfast is excellant The hotel is let down by staff who appear to be bored by the clientele. Unlike other places in Uganda, it is rare to see a smile.

This is probably the oldest hotel in Entebbe, but there has been enough renovation work and maintenance, so the room is quite confortable -the bed perhaps a bit too hard for some-. Bathroom, linen, are clean. The room had been sprayed for mosquitoes. Breakfast available since very early in the morning, with relatively good food. Staff is friendly. Location is...

It's a hotel rated as 3 star. It's not at the lake so you will not see the beach of Lake Victoria while there. But they have one of the biggest swimming pool that you could dive into. It's really a clean pool and it has guests who are not necessarily residents of the hotel. The rooms are the standard...
