Good prices (we paid $80 for a triple) and can accommodate up to 30 people so great if you have a big group.

Great guesthouse run by local Ugandan women so it felt good knowing our money was staying in the country. Free airport transfer made our late night arrival completely stress free. Florence, Grace and the other women were there to greet us with warm welcomes, our room and ensuite bathroom were very big, beds were comfy and mosquito nets looked new. Delicious, freshly made breakfast in the morning (included) and couldn't have asked for a better start to our trip than sitting on their porch and drinking a morning coffee while looking over the beautiful lake Victoria.

You will probably only spend a night in Entebbe waiting for your flight. This place is wonderfully close to the airport, has GREAT food, warm and helpful hostesses and a lovely location with great sunsets and birds. If you ask they will walk you to the local market area and even a good craft store in case you forgot to get something during your tour. Clean and comfortable - you will not regret this lay-over night.

Room Tip: A home with large rooms, private bath and good air flow.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The room was lovely and colourful, full mosquito net, ensuite with a good shower. Home cooking with fresh ingredients. The atmosphere was relaxed and Florence was really helpful; she fixed us up with a place to stay in Jinja, and organised transport there with their driver.
As others have said, the garden is spacious and well kept, the birds extraordinary, the view glorious! What`s not to like? It was my first visit to Uganda, so thank you Lake Victoria View Guesthouse.

Room Tip: Room at the end and overlooking lake was a good choice for us

Arrival at Lake Victoria View Guest House was so smooth since they sent me a complimentary ride from the airport. The Guest House is simple and well maintained. all the basic amenities for a short stay is available. The meals are simple and are home made.

The guest house also has a lovely garden with exotic plants and many birds. You can hear the birds chirping most of the day. This gives a nice touch of nature.

There is Wifi, which works best in the lounge area.

I liked the simplicity and ease of communication with the staff.

I would recommend this place for any short stays or transit stays in Entebbe. It has a home feel since it is located a place that was initially a residential house.

Irene and all the staff have been good to me and I shall surely come back

Room Tip: Ask for master room in main bedroom. It is self contained and very spacious. It is also very quiet...

Very helpful staff who arranged airport pickup without extra cost. The hotel driver also helped us drive through town and find places to buy clothes, after our luggage getting stuck in Istanbul. Extremely helpful staff all around and a nice place with a beautiful garden and a view overlooking the Nile River. Rooms simple but good, with a spacious bathroom.

I mean typically african that the hot shower was not working and they didnt have banana's available for banana pancake with the breakfast and there were holes in the mosquito netting.
But apart from that (which doesnt really bother me anymore) it was a very fine place to stay.
Not too big, very nice view and garden, great bed (normal pillows!) and friendly service.
I will go back next time!
