“Seen better days”
Reviewed 10 February 2011

I've stayed in the Flight Motel now on three different occasions (in August 2005, January 2008, and January 2011), and I've always had very comfortable stays. That said, my last stay was a bit of disappointment, not because the hotel has become terribly deficient, but because I know it has seen better days.

The hotel obviously started on a major renovation about 3-4 years ago, but seems to have abandoned those plans. As a results, much of the (originally lovely) little hotel is surrounded by an unfinished, multistory concrete hulk. The rooms have also showed some signs of age.

That said, I was pleased that I was able to make a last-minute reservation (because of an unexpectedly late-arriving flight in Entebbe), and was greeted by a staff person at the airport at a very late hour. (The free shuttle to and from the airport is quite reliable.) The hotel is pretty much as close to the airport as you can get, which makes it extremely convenient for late-arriving and early-departing flights.

The breakfast was also a bit less extensive than I remember it being (i.e., no eggs--just toast and a choice of pineapple or watermelon, plus hot beverages), but it is inclusive, and the price for the entire night plus breakfast is quite reasonable.

Reviewed 4 July 2007

we stayed in this place for three nights before flying home to the UK after a month in Uganda, thought it might be a nice idea to book in to a nice hotel to spruce up before flying home. in theory, it could have been but after a long bus journey from kampala we ended up here having booked it a week earlier and honestly thought they hadn't finished building it! however you walk through the scaffolding and check in, they quoted a higher price (60,000)than we had been told(50,000), not unusual in uganda as everyone tries to get more money out of you, but we weren't having it, asked for a manager, was told there was no manager in until the morning so we had no choice but to stay there. in fact the rooms were very nice, twin beds with mosquito nets and nice bathrooms with PROPER TOILETS!! the food was nice but limited we ate out most of the time. the next two days we were moved twice as they had double booked, grrrrr. we had a nice room with 6 beds huge room then got moved to a 5 bed room which was a lot smaller but we were going home the next day or else might have kicked up a fuss. so all in all i would say we were qualified to comment on all of the rooms as it felt like we slept in every single one the amount of times we were moved. please don't go hoping for beauty treatments, the spa does not exist which was the reason for going there in the first place but this was may 07 and it was under reconstruction so may be there now. for airport commutes i cannot complain, you get a wake up call, free shuttle etc, nice hotel but i'd try to find cheaper and i wouldn't hope for too much here.

  • Liked — the location, it was 5 mins from the airport
  • Disliked — it is nothing like what is advertised on the web, I'd look elsewhere
