“Great Guesthouse”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Our stay was short but sweet as we arrived late into Entebbe airport. Our driver was there as we arrived to collect us and with only a few minutes drive to the guesthouse it was perfect after a long flight. Double room was lovely, comfortable bed and clean with mosquito net, grounds were very well kept and staff were really helpful. Hot showers also.

We stayed here on our last night after a gorilla overland tour as we had to be at the airport 7am.

The hotel was self contained within grounds with a nice garden area, breakfast was included and three course dinner was available for about $10 each, which was fairly nice as there's not really anywhere to go outside.
They had free wifi which was fairly reliable which was nice bonus.

The rooms were clean and shower was hot. The double bed was a massive four post bed with mosquito net around it. We had a pretty good nights sleep.

There was a bit of confusion in the morning. I told the reception we wanted to be at the airport for 7 and that got misinterpreted for our flight was at 7 and they tried to rush us out with another group around 6ish, though all was fine once we'd cleared this up.

We have lived in Uganda for nearly ten years now and have a number of visitors each year. I recommend that they book here as they will be looked after even when they arrive in the early morning. It is usually the fault of the airport that there are delays so if no one is there to meet you you can ring up and they will be with you in less than 30 mins. The place is clean and the staff look after you with friendly greetings. Its a good intro to Ugandan culture as you do have to be patient and flexible.

I arrived to the Entebbe airport at 2am so I spent the night in that guesthouse. They picked me up and took me to the guesthouse. The room was big, clean and modern with a complete restroom inside. I was very happy to be there.... although the animals made noise all the night long (bring earplug!)

Make sure that they will pick you up at the airport (double check it is much more than recommendable)

The next day, I had a breadkfast (included in the $50) ... was good enough. Ahg! the private taxi to Kampala costed 90,000 shillings. I feel that it is too much, but ....

* hospitality, friendly staff
* no choice in food, but it was ok
* room itself was nice, but very small and basic bathroom
* people dine in the garden and all rooms are directly next to it, so when you have to get up early and others stay out late chatting and drinking, this gets very annoying. (there's a continuous off and on of new people, so this will never change)
* I suppose nobody choses this place to stay more than 2 nights tops
* free wifi in the dining room

We weren't totally sure how to rate this one -- the rooms were definitely fine, but we didn't think it was a great value. The biggest issue was that I booked this place primarily because we got in on a very late flight (2am) and wanted a sure ride from the airport to someplace close; however, they didn't pick us up. They said that they waited for us for a bit and then left (our luggage was lost, so it probably took us longer than normal, but this apparently happens all the time). They also wouldn't give us a discount for not picking us up.

Room Tip: As other people have mentioned, the rooms on the garden are much nicer.

A great place to start and/or finish your trip to Uganda. The guesthouse is very close to the airport but not troubled by any significant aircraft noise. Free and reliable airport transfers are included and the whole place is comfortable and welcoming. The staff are nice, the food good and the outdoor evening meal is very a nice touch. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. If you are there for more than the first or last day of your trip you will find a bank and supermarket within easy walking distance and a good clinic should you need it. The Botanical Gardens are a leisurely 30 minute walk away. We would certainly stay here again if we return to Uganda.
