A perfect retreat from the bustle of Entebbe. Felt very relaxed strolling through gardens filled with birds and beautiful plants. Excellent food, very comfortable rooms with everything you need (great showers, comfy). Warm and hospitable staff. Would absolutely stay here again.

We stayed here the night we got into Uganda and the night before we left. Only 15 minutes from the airport so it's very convenient. The food options were good and they even made us a take away breakfast for our 6:30 am flight.

Had a very relaxing final day here before leaving Uganda. Easy access to the airport. Comfortable rooms, beautiful garden, great food, friendly staff. Wifi in the main lounge & terrace but not in the garden rooms, but personally I quite liked that.

A Five Star Lodge for a Three Star Price! A perfect location for Arrival and Departure from Entebbe, as well as access to Lake Victoria. The hotel staff were excellent and one would never feel unsafe. .

We had completed a brilliant tour in Rwanda then Uganda with Jack our expert guide. Saw some amazing wildlife, the highlight of which had to be getting so close to a group of gorillas. We spent our last night at the guest house, a quiet oasis in Entebbe, minutes from the airport. Clean, pleasant with helpful staff.
