I was met at the Entebbe Airport by a driver sent by the African Roots Guest House. It is about a ten minute drive from the airport. The setting is a residential area that is walking distance to Victoria Mall. ( where, if you want it you can get a great cup of coffee) . Also within walking distance was...

This guesthouse deserves every one of its positive reviews. It is run by two Ugandan women who warm, open, and generous in every way. As a woman traveling on my own, I am always looking for businesses run by women and I felt safe and very cared for during my time. It is clean, convenient, and airport pick up and...

Stayed here in November 2016 at the beginning and end of our trip to Uganda and highly recommend it. It's well run by a group of helpful women who have worked in the tourism sector for many years and know exactly what visitors want. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfortable and the breakfasts excellent. It's also perfectly located,...

My stay at this guesthouse was fantastic. I booked one night to have a place to rest before my very early morning flight out of Entebbe. Right from check-in the experience was great. Catherine was quick to get me to my room, which was clean and welcoming. The sheets and the towels were the softest I came across in Uganda!...

A short drive away from Entebbe airport. Collected from airport Very friendly staff and comfortable accommodation. An eye to detail and clean, well-kept rooms. Food - a good selection for breakfast (recommend the pineapple pancakes!!). Nothing too much trouble - short walk to Lake Victoria (5 minutes) and within walking distance of Victoria shopping Mall and the Botanical Gardens.

The maid is coming to clean your room every day, the service level in all at this guesthouse is very high. The ladies are so kind and serviceminded :) Free transfer to the...

The staff was very friendly and made us feel at home. We did a lot of hand washing and they let us hang our clothes out to dry on the clothes lines out back. They made sandwiches late one night (after a bad dinner experience at a nearby restaurant where we walked out after waiting an hour with no food)...

I love it here. I often stop here after being in Uganda, on my way back to the Uk. The ladies here make you very welcome, they are delightful. The room is comfortable and clean and you can get a dayroom if you have an evening flight, with a lift to the airport. The setting is good. It's really near...
