“Our stay was too short!”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

My wife and I stayed at 2Friends Beach Hotel for two nights while in Uganda to visit a child we sponsor through Compassion International. Our only regret about our stay was that we didn't book at least one more day to relax at 2Friends and enjoy this special place on Lake Victoria.

The location of the property is excellent...only a few minutes from the airport but in a very quiet neighborhood with many private residences nearby. With 24 hour security, we felt very safe.

Upon our late night arrival, we were greeted warmly by Ameriah Hope. While the entire staff is terrific, Ameriah is a standout. She was very attentive to our needs as guests, handling a broad variety of responsibilities around the hotel.

The rooms and grounds are as beautiful, clean and well-maintained as the management photographs depict. Breakfast was excellent, and the poolside restaurant/bar was very relaxing. We also enjoyed dinner at 2Friends on the second night of our stay. Try the pasta with Bolognaise sauce!

Although the rooms at 2Friends do not have air conditioning, the fan in our room kept us comfortable. With well-maintained screens on the windows and a good mosquito net over the bed, it is possible to open the windows at night without much concern.

Uganda is a beautiful, hospitable country. Don't hesitate to go...and stay at 2Friends!

Room Tip: We liked being on the second floor. Great view of the lake from our balcony.

My husband and I stayed at 2 Friends Beach Hotel for a quick, relaxing weekend before heading back to work in the DRC. We were hoping for a place that would let us really relax and 2 Friends was just what we needed. Our room was clean and beautiful, plus we had a gorgeous view of Lake Victoria. I would definitely recommend paying extra for a balcony. It was great. The room also comes with a phenomenal shower and a nice fan. The service was exceptional and everyone was really friendly. We enjoyed the small bar and restaurant, which had great food and wine. The pool is also nice and clean. We've stayed in a few places in Entebbe and this was a really great place. If you're looking for a place where you don't need to worry about things for a few days, this is the place. I'd go back just for the awesome shower.

Room Tip: Go for a room with a balcony if possible. It's worth it.

The 2friends is more like a guesthouse than a hotel in that it is a clean homely place with excellent friendly staff who make you feel very welcome. This produces a relaxed atmosphere where you can sit on your balcony and watch over Lake Victoria, go to the bar and chat with people, or just stay in your well-appointed room. As already mentioned by another reviewer the new Victoria Mall is only a short walk away with a large supermarket and nearby Thai restaurant. The hotel's menu is somewhat limited and there is no tea/coffee making facilities in the rooms otherwise they would have been given 5 stars.

I stayed two nights here in April. One prior to a gorilla trek trip and one night after - layover was due to flight timings.

The correspondence from Conrad and his colleagues was of a very high quality - put my mind at ease.

I would recommend to travellers looking for a clean place to lay your head for a night or two close to the airport.

OMG! This place is so amazing, the beautiful view from our room overlooking Lake Victoria. I Love this place, and the local supermarket at Victoria mall is only a 5min walk.

I spent most of my Easter at this quaint little Beach Hotel in Entebbe. The Hotel is small,homely and cosy. It has the best staff i have experienced in any Hotel in Uganda. Very friendly, helpful and cheerful. The room that I had booked was overlooking the Lake and it was really serene and relaxing sitting outside during the evenings.

The food was really delicious and credit should go to the Chef for making fresh food and was even prepared to go out of the menu to prepare food that was not in the menu.

I will definately be back anytime I am in Entebbe, Personalized service at its best.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Lake with a terrace are the Best. The one on the top is the Best.
