Lovey hotel, conveniently situated with the Botanical gardens just a 5 min walk. Good for the airport and close to a range of great eating places on the shores of Lake Victoria. Access to the new highway into Kampala in a few mins. Rooms great and service v good.

Laura F, Silver Spring 20/05/2019

Excellent hotel accommodations. The hotel offers universal converters as part of the outlets in each room. Well prepared breakfast buffet or you can ordered something other. Breakfast meal accommodates travelers who are on different time zones. Not just the typical breakfast meal but food that one would order for lunch or dinner. All of the staff are very friendly and accommodating of guests needs. Located next to Victoria Mall.

DavidM341, Seattle 14/05/2019

We have stayed here in years past and knew what to expect. There is a lot to like about this property: First, it is just minutes from the airport, and the hotel has a shuttle available. Our flight arrived at around 4 AM, and there was the driver, waiting for us as soon as we exited the terminal. The room was very clean and comfortable, and the ac was really nice to have. We slept easily each night in our 2-floor room. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom. Our wifi connection was a always strong. The breakfast was excellent. I also have to give a special commendation to the Executive Chef, Kumar. We asked for a dinner of Indian food for a party of 11. He worked with me on the menu items, was eager to do it, and he presented us with an absolutely outstanding meal of authentic, delicious Indian cuisine, which included appetizers, 3 or 4 main dishes, 3 types of naan, and more. He and his staff were incredible. The hotel is connected to The Victoria Mall, which has a supermarket, lots of shops, and a very good restaurant that serves quality food and coffee. I recommend this property if you want a more Western type of hotel, with all the comforts of home.

I stayed here one night and it was very accommodating. Breakfast was included with the stay. We came in on a late flight and arrived st the hotel around 11pm. The restaurant serves 24 hours a day. The room had good wifi that was included.

Just got to the hotel and the service was great. The people here were so friendly. The smell and ambiance was perfect of what you want a hotel to smell like... Fresh and revitalizing. Everything is working from the internet to the TV channels to the lights and ACs, and me and my friends are so relaxed. Thumbs up to you

"Excellent hotel and staff members!"

User 04/05/2019

I leaved in a presidential suit room and it was as shown on the Best Western Premier Garden Hotel website. The experience was excellent. The hotel has services that are up to date and meets the customer level expectations. The staff members are very helpful and very welcoming. I would highly recommend this hotel to family, friends and other people. From a scale of 1 to 10: I would give the hotel and staff members a scale of 10.

"Lovely place!"

User 28/04/2019

I stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and i must say i loved it. the room is very comfortable and clean, they provide almost everything a guest might need including toothbrush and paste, flat iron etc. the internet was also good and the meals wonderful. Thank you to the management and staff of the hotel.

"Great place!"

User 26/04/2019

I stayed here a very short time (arrived around 12am-7am). I really enjoyed the continental breakfast, and the beds were comfortable, and the room was clean and nice. There was a nice balcony with table and chairs. I did not get to enjoy the shower (my cell phone alarm failed to go off in time) but my co-travelers said the shower was amazing...the optional water from the ceiling felt like rain. I especially appreciated the variety of charging cables available next to my bed. It is located a short drive from the airport.

User 26/04/2019

The rooms and amenities were most appeasing. I found the room clean and comfortable especially the bed. I would have preferred a better working chair though since business trips usually require working late in the room

Origorigo, Vienna, Austria 12/04/2019

All perfect! Breakfast, room, air conditioning, location, staff, spa (they come to your room for treatment), price/quality ratio excellent. I enjoyed it very much. The hotel is new from 2016, very modern.

"Nice relaxing stay"

User 30/03/2019

This was our second stay here. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff is helpful and efficient. Breakfast is ample, and delicious. Location is gated and very secure, with a mall inside the perimeter and local shops across the street. With the airport only a 10 minute drive this was a perfect place to end our vacation.

"Very nice hotel"

Jpaws6, Leeds, United Kingdom 24/03/2019

Overall a very nice, friendly hotel, great service and location (in a mall, close to lakeside and botanical gardens) with good standard rooms. Staff were very attentive and friendly. My only criticism is the gym which was in bad order and quite dirty...very different from the rest of the hotel which is clean and well-maintained.

Very nice hotel, the staff is very friendly and will go out of there way to help guests. The Ark is a nice place to grab a cold drink, the staff there are friendly . The food is also very good, with very reasonable prices.

Tom0324, New York City, New York 13/03/2019

We started out our 3 week tour of east Africa here. After arriving in Entebbe around 10 PM (after 20+ hours of travel from the US), we just wanted to stay in Entebbe. This was a good choice as it was nice and quiet. The hotel itself is brand new. Clean and modern with nice rooms. Wanted air conditioning so we could be comfortable as we got over the jet lag. Stayed for 2 nights and felt great when we started our safari. There is a shopping mall literally directly next door with a very nice grocery store if you want to stock up on supplies. Restaurant in the hotel had a great breakfast and we had a very nice dinner one night out on their patio. Great value for the money. The hotel is also about a 5 minute walk from the Entebbe Botanical Gardens which is definitely worth a visit. Overall highly recommended.

"great visit!"

Kbnow, New York City, New York 13/03/2019

i recently stayed 2 nights at this hotel with my boyfriend when we first arrived in Uganda. The rooms were comfortable, clean and cozy. We wanted a nice place to stay after our 20 hour flight in to the country. The location is ideal, right next to a shopping center which we were able to go to and get some groceries. There is a very nice botanical gardens located a few min walk down the block which was great for us to do on our day when we were settling in.

"Complicated Reservation"

User 07/03/2019

We had a complicated reservation including different nights, different arrival times, twin rooms, single rooms, etc. We had the best experience!! Efficient to deal with via email. The hotel is great. The staff understand customer service. Great showers - lots of pressure. Restaurant - breakfast is plentiful, cappuccin is fab. We will be back 100%

"Good, Easy & Accessible Hotel"

User 06/03/2019

The hotel was good, comfortable for a 2 night stay with easy access to the Victoria Mall. The staff are in need for training which I believe being an international train BestWestern is striving in achieving this. Compared to the service levels in Uganda, they are very good.

"2 night stay single female traveller"

User 23/02/2019

Arrived late in the evening. Was quoted a price, I found in cheaper on booking.com and they matched the price. The room was as expected for this type of hotel. What made it great was the staff. Stephen the concierge, and their designated taxi driver Ricky made my stay as a female traveller much more comfortable.

"Ok but not special"

ZuchtzeVlaigen, Sleen, The Netherlands 20/02/2019

The room was convenient, the bathroom was decent. The restaurant, lobby and surroundings were however not reaching the expectations that one would have from such a prices hotel. The staff was nice but poorly trained and dressed.

clarkgable186534, Glasgow, United Kingdom 18/02/2019

The hotel is in a very good secure location about 10 minutes drive from Entebbe airport, and next door to the good facilities within Victoria Mall, including a bank, pharmacy and supermarket. Great place to stay if arriving off a late at night flight as one does not need to travel the 45 minutes into Kampala city.There is excellent security around the property making one feel very safe.The surrounding area is quiet with no traffic noise. At time of reviewing ( Feb 2019 ) a large swimming pool/spa is being completed. I was met at reception on arrival by friendly and efficient staff who made me feel very much at home, and my luggage taken to my room by Henry, one of the concierge staff, with a welcoming chat. The large room was very much up to good European standards, with large comfortable bed and good quality linen and towels, walk in shower with good supply of hot water and pressure. Television with BBC World News and other channels, A/C, and a nice large terrace with table and chairs. All facilities were clean and well maintained. The breakfast was excellent with a nice selection of food, including fresh fruits individually prepared omelettes and good Ugandan fresh coffee all enjoyed in nice surroundings, and there is a terrace area to dine in also.The deal was offered at a very good price, and I was very comfortable here, so I would have no hesitation in returning to this hotel, or recommending it to others visiting Uganda.

"Fair city hotel"

katherineannelee, Zug, Switzerland 01/02/2019

We stayed one night at the hotel transferring between camps. It was a clean hotel in the city center of Entebbe. Entebbe itself was really nice and worth exploring by foot. The hotel was a good change after staying in camps for some time. It is clean and has all typical Best Western amenities. It was good to get cleaned-up and sorted once again. Also, we had lunch at the hotel's restaurant, which was good, with a wide range of food options. Additionally, we booked a massage with the hotel. The hotel didn't have their own spa as it turned out, so they take you to the Vicotoria hotel. All worked well, you just need to organize your driver back to the hotel - but the Victoria was very helpful and probably a good hotel alternative to look at.

"Great Place for short stay in Entebbe"

User 28/01/2019

The location is very good..right adjoining the Victoria mall which has cinemas, shoprite store for daily needs, café java in the Victoria mall is great food and value for money. Airport pick up and drop facility free. rooms are clean but small but okay.

We stayed on a pit stop to Tanzania. Last week we stayed at Protea and I think this hotel is a bit better...more updated and right beside Victoria Mall. The restaurant is pretty good. It is close to the airport. I'd stay here again if back in Entebbe for a stop.

Hotel has everything you could need, and if not the mall next door has it covered. Friendly and helpful staff, always happy and so polite. Very clean and modern hotel. Very close to the shores of lake Victoria and the botanical gardens. Me and my wife had a great stay before and after safari round Uganda. Bar offers good selection of drinks, cocktails. Restaurant serves great food from a surprisingly wide menu. Would come back for sure.

Two nights as stopovers and had such a wonderful experience. The Victoria mall is just a minute away. Rooms are very clean. Very Impressive establishment. We checked in quite late at night and were famished. The onsite restaurant was open with a selective menu. Which was truly better than nothing at all.

I got there late and left early the next morning but the room was clean and very comfortable. The team were friendly. The restaurant made a late dinner which was great but the packed breakfast was lost in translation and just an apple, some juice and 2 hard boiled eggs between 3 of us!! This is a great place to overnight between flights or if you need to be in Entebbe.

It is just that. Hype is good but truth always shows itself in good time. So we had a serious meeting here and had pretty some communications to do - Email danced itself but never sent a message. TV never showed anything despite hotel staff coming over several times. You just sympathise how a business could be so careless in this era of online global commentary and evaluation. I did inform the front desk staff that i will make this review today when i reach my next destination, Thats what i had to do.

oby2017, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates 01/09/2018

After a month travelling through Africa this last night before our departure was really lovely. A modern secure clean hotel. Water was provided in the rooms. Beds were comfortable snd large with crisp white sheets. Spacious room with a balcony and with lots of space to sort out our suitcases before departure and a free regular shuttle to Entebbe airport on demand. The journey was about 10 minutes to the airport. You do sit in a bit of a queue to get through to the airport. Checkin and check out were speedy. The bathroom was spacious and the free standing shower good and hot. The hotel is attached to a small mall with some cashpoint machines and a large supermarket. Next door is a superb bakery. The breakfast at the hotel was small and basic but adequate. They did however offer cappucino and espresso coffee which we enjoyed. All in all a really good hotel and I would happily recommend it and stay here again.

Xavier772, Oostduinkerke-Bad, West-Vlaanderen, Belgium 31/08/2018

When you have an arrival or a departure from Entebbe will this hotel located in a mall be an alternative because close to the airport. Very clean and safe. Possibility to have a drink at the bar. There is a very good thai restaurant just next to the mall. A must. The people are helpfull and very friendly. I must say everywhere in Uganda A good adress to start or to arrive

Quicksilvr44, Laramie, Wyoming 25/08/2018

Booked on Hotels.com and paid in advance. No issues with check in at all. This property is just amazing. The best hotel to stay at while in Entebbe. The service is above par and the rooms are what Westerns would expect. Service at the bar (The Ark) and the restaurant were very good. You have to go through a metal detector just to get inside the doors to reception, but this is common for many places in Uganda/East Africa. There is a Forex exchange less than 100 yards connected to the Victoria Mall along with a supermarket and other stores.

If you are in Entebbe for work then the BW Garden Inn is your best option. It's only a 10 minute drive from the airport and located right next to the well-known Victoria Mall which has everything you could ever need. The hotel itself is modern, clean and well laid out. The rooms are comfortable and well designed for work travelers. I was very impressed with this hotel and will definitely stay here again. Make sure you book their swift and free airport shuttle service. Great value!

I've stayed at the Best Western several times on business with my company, the rooms comfortable and clean. The service is some of the best I've ever had, all the employees are friendly and professional. The property is always clean and my room is cleaned perfectly everyday, I would like to thank two employees that did super job and represented very well, Veronica in housekeeping informed of all the amenities available at the hotel which was very helpful, and Ritah a server at the restaurant, I was interested in local cuisine she was very informative and helpedtttvj. me make some delicious selections that I would have missed without her help. These are two examples of why I will alway recommend the Best Western Premier Garden Hotel as the best place to stay in Entebbe.

Best Western Premier is located right next to Victoria Mall, which makes it very convinient for shopping and eating. Its also within walking distance to the lake and some nice beachfront restaurants. So, locationwise is perfect. The hotel itself is really good, nice rooms, decent breakfast and friendly staff. When I arrived in Entebbe, my luggage stayed behind, so I had to go back to the airport the next day to pick it up. The reception arranged the driver to drive me to the airport, where he patiently waited for me to pick up my luggage (it took like 45mins) and then drive me back to the hotel. Excellent service!

"GREAT HOTEL, BUT THE STAFF ARE TREATED APPALLINGLY"

1
User 26/07/2018

This hotel is first class with a high level or service. It is well-equipped and has all the amenities you would expect from Best Western. However I witnessed an instance when a non-resident guest left without paying the bill. The waitress was distraught because apparently it is Best Western policy at the Garden Hotel to make the staff pay for losses incurred in this way. Appalling, prejudiced behaviour as this event was completely outside her control. Time to man up and apply Western standards to your Best Premier hotels ... !!!

"Outstanding property, service, and food"

User 21/07/2018

Our organization selected the Premier Garden Hotel to host a four-day meeting with 15 international visitors, and every facet of our stay was perfect. The guest rooms are spacious, modern, and clean, and the conference facilities and services are outstanding. All the meals we ate in the dining room were great, and there's a generous breakfast buffet. Most impressive is the quality of the management and staff — extremely professional, courteous, and helpful. The hotel is not a resort destination, but it's next door to the botanical gardens and close to the airport. Great place to stay in Entebbe.

One of the best hotel in Entebbe with high level of service and amenities. The rooms are big, classic, modern and equipped with advanced technology system. Breakfast is just perfect. Restaurant is very good with friendly staff and amazing food. Couldn't explore much of the hotel as I was always out for meetings. But it is definitely a good choice either for business or family time.

It was a great stay after a long international flight. They offer a free shuttle that was waiting for us. It's close to the airport. Rooms large, modern and clean. Most of all nice and quiet. The free breakfast was large, nothing bad to write if you just want a place to sleep.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay in this beautiful hotel. Extremely helpful staff and the room was superb. I would highly recommend a stay here. Everything was exceptionally clean and the air conditioning was very welcome after 2 days on safari!

"Awesome stay!"

Neguah, Tromso, Norway 07/04/2018

We chose Best Western as a pit stop and place to sleep before our short Safari in Murchison Falls. I have to say, we wanted to extend our stay, but since everything was planned we couldn't. Prior to our visit I had an email correspondence with Pamella (through Expedia.com) which was informative, and we also arranged airport pickup. As agreed, staff from the hotel was waiting for us - and the pickup was complimentary. A security guard and a metal detector met us at the entrance. A good thing for sure, but I question the thoroughness. We all went through the detector and the guard went over our backpack rather fast. Our luggage was carried inside by the staff. They didn't check them. So, if I wanted I could have brought some scary stuff inside. Anyway, it's better than nothing. The receptionist was very kind, especially Pamella. Very helpful! We got a juicy welcome drink while we waited for our room to be ready - which didn't take long. The staff both took us the the rooms and carried the luggage (I must honestly say that I don't like them taking the luggage, because I'm fully capable of doing it myself. But they want to help, so I won't protest). We didn't tip the staff that showed us the room, because we weren't sure what and if. But we gave the hotel 50000 shilling when we left, which is around $13,5. Our room was located on the west side, with view of the road. If you are staying for a longer time and want view, you can always ask for a room on the opposite side, with view of Victoria lake and the garden. Room was spacious, clean and welcoming and so was the bathroom. Room have AC which worked very well. All of us slept very good. As most hotel, it's well equipped and you probably won't miss anything. The location of the hotel is close to a small shopping mall, with KFC, cinema, atm, pharmacy and with among others. A grocery store is also soon to be open. We had to leave at 6am, and we were told that the hotel could give us breakfast to go if we had to leave before the main breakfast started (which is 6.30 am, if I'm not mistaken). But instead of giving us a packed breakfast they actually opened the servings at 5.30. We thought they only had a small selection, but as we could tell the was the big deal. Continental breakfast (order different kinds of eggs) bread, yoghurt, croissant, juice and more. Wifi was ok. We did easy surfing and some texting. Worked fine. Didn't test the speed, but I don't think you can stream, so be sure to download anything you want or need to watch. All in all, very good and awesome stay!

"Great Location!"

alex_delaslo, Nairobi, Kenya 03/04/2018

The hotel is located at Victoria Mall hence very convenient for those looking for affordable eateries such as KFC,Cafe Javas or planning to end their evening by watching a movie at the local cinema. Despite being located in mall, the rooms are surprisingly tranquil and comfortable. The gym and meeting rooms are located within the mall(outside the hotel) meaning one has to exit the hotel to access them. It's worth noting that the hotel is quite close to Entebbe airport approximately 15-20 minute drive. As I was there during a business trip, it was quite frustrating not being able to access Microsoft services such as MS Office 365 from my laptop and also their business center.

"Perfectly designed rooms, good location, forgetful staff at reception desk"

kilovolt500, Bangkok 26/03/2018

The rooms are very well designed, spacious, wardrobe, fridge, TV, safe deposit box, iron, space to store suitcase and ample space on the desk; all amenities provided. The bathroom is equally spacious, especially the shower, compliments to the architect and the owner of the hotel. The restaurant is open 24hrs enabling early breakfast with an extensive choice. The service staff at breakfast is very friendly and attentive. A big advantage of the location is the adjacent mall with a foreign exchange office, Java Café, shops, cinema, and fast food. All in all the perfect place to stay after a long flight or up-country trip. The only shortcomings refer to the staff at the reception desk or possibly the hotel policy. I booked the hotel via expedia for my 1st stay and hotel.com for my 2nd stay and within 1 week twice experienced that the airport pick up did not take place. When I arrived from abroad I had the written confirmation that the hotel would pick me up at the airport, however, despite waiting and searching for the Best Western staff, there was nobody at the airport. After searching for a person holding a Best Western sign for 10 minutes and inquiring with persons holding the signs of other hotels without success, I took a taxi and when I arrived at the hotel I was told that the driver were still waiting for me at the airport. To make sure that the airport pickup will be organized for my next arrival 6 days later I requested the reception staff to take notes of my arrival time and flight number. It was in vain, again there was no Best Western staff at the airport to pick me up, again I reached the hotel by taxi, and at the reception were the same ladies with whom I had agreed on the airport pickup. They did not even try to find an excuse nor did they apologize. And I noticed that some guests get a welcome drink at the reception and others don't, probably depends on the type of booking. The internet is not that fast as announced. However, my downgrading of this hotel is caused by the irresponsibility of the reception staff or possibly the managements order not to provide the airport pickup for guests with online booking through such sites as booking.com, expedia, and hotel.com.

I was with a group of 12 and we stayed here 10 nights. The hotel was always clean and the staff were all very friendly! They all went above and beyond to serve our group. The chef's food was ALWAYS delicious and was presented so beautifully. He consistently checked to make sure that everything tasted well and it definitely did! Definitely recommend eating all meals at the hotel at least some. The breakfast was also delicious and had such a variety of food as well as wonderful traditional food. Will definitely be staying here again when I visit Uganda!

"Just what I needed after several days traveling throughout Uganda"

Jrrob, Washington DC, District of Columbia 13/03/2018

I booked this hotel for one night after I had finished a tour of Uganda's beautiful national parks. This was the perfect cap to my trip. The rooms are super clean and well appointed. The wi-fi is fast. The bathroom is modern, and the water is hot. It's not far from the airport, which is a plus given Entebbe and Kampala's notoriously bad traffic. Transport to and from the airport is complimentary, which is also a plus. The hotel has a restaurant, which I would give a 2.5 out 5. But it's nice that breakfast is included in the room rate. Also, the hotel is connected to a mall, which has a fast food restaurant, a coffee shop, and a sit-down restaurant. The hotel is also a quick 10-minute walk to the botanical gardens, which offer beautiful gardens on the shores of Lake Victoria. Nice plus that the hotel is across the street from a craft market in case you're looking for souvenirs. Also important to note that this Best Western is not like some Best Westerns in the states. It would qualify as at least a four-star hotel.

Trekandmore, Hanover, New Hampshire 02/03/2018

Clean, new, modern, international class hotel. Very helpful staff. Free access to a members only gym in adjacent mall. Beautiful rooms -- feels like I am already in Amsterdam! Nice big safe for laptop. I did see (after I agreed to a rate for a day room) that there was a deal on trip advisor for a full overnight rate just $4 more. Should have seen that but running too fast.

The reception and check in was good. The ambience and location for the hotel are satisfactory. The staff at reception, concierge and restaurant are friendly and helpful. Movement from the guest area on the second floor to the conference area is arduous. The hotel is located next to a shopping mall.

grantsleeds, Leeds, United Kingdom 22/02/2018

Stayed here for 5 nights after our 11 night tour of Uganda. Throughly enjoyed our stay, the rooms are lovely and clean, the bed was lovely and comfy with crisp white linen, well equipped bathroom with toiletries replenished every day - perfect. We ate in the restaurant every night and just about tried everything on the menu- all delicious! And the service was superb, all the waitressing staff are very attentive and nothing is too much trouble for any of them - special mention to Merab- lovely girl and brilliant at her job - but really they all do a fantastic job. The pool is currently under construction, but if you wish, they will take you to a hotel with a pool which is no more than 5 minutes away and collect you - this is free of charge including transport which is an excellent service - we just had one mis-hap with this but when brought to their attention the staff were very apologetic. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again given the chance!

I stayed at the Best Western Premier on a weekend. The hotel is well located at the entrance of the city, but more importantly, built into one of two major shopping malls. Staff are friendly and efficient. No comment on the dining experience because we didn't eat there but it was nice to see that the hotel also had a nice bar!

"Absolute gem"

amitah, Okayama, Japan 18/02/2018

I've stayed here three or four times over the past 18 months and been happy every time. The hotel is clean, airy, and pleasant. The service, including airport pickup, has been good every time. The last two times, I was greeted with fresh passionfruit juice while checking in--welcome refreshment after a series of very long flights. Sometimes they offer espresso during checkout. This is my favorite hotel in Uganda, which is pretty amazing for an airport hotel. The good: All three rooms I stayed in during 2017 were clean and modern with a balcony, large bathroom, and satellite tv. The service has always been great, including helping me find replacement items when the airline once lost my bags for two days. It's very close to the airport, so convenient as a place to crash when you first arrive on a late flight (as I usually do) or for a bit of relaxation in Entebbe before your flight out. It's also attached to a small mall with food options and within walking distance of some of the beachside spots in Entebbe, like Goretti's. The bad: Not much. Make sure your sliding door is locked after you check in; the cleaning staff often leave them open. After repeated stays, I've never had a bad experience. Bottom line: I'll keep coming back.

"Nice Rooms,Friendly Staff, Restaurant ?"

Texmission, Dallas, Texas 17/02/2018

The rooms are great with nice linens and amenities. The front desk staff and doorman were very friendly and helpful along with the manager. The refrigerator in the room wasn't working, however they sent up ice and responded immediately. The challenge was the restaurant. The rating would be higher if the service in the restaurant was better and the food preparation was what we had ordered. The curry was so salty I couldn't eat it and my husband's fish was fried instead of sauteed and was cold. We left and went to Javas Cafe nearby and had a great meal with fast service. Before leaving we discussed these things with the manager and he assured us he would take care of the maintenance issues and restaurant challenges. We will try the hotel again in the future.

"We loved our two stays there"

Doffa, Vila Velha, ES 06/02/2018

During our a safari trip to Uganda we stayed two times in the Best Western Garden Hotel. The first time we choose the hotel, because our flight from Kigali was arriving in the evening and we did not want to travel all the way and face the traffic jam to Kampala in the night (An express highway Entebbe - Kampala is being built, which cause delays. On the other hand large parts of the new road are already finished and being used clandestinely). We booked the free airport shuttle in advance and the pick-up was right on time - great when you arrive the first time in a new country. We enjoyed our stay so much, that we booked the hotel one more time for one night before leaving Uganda by air. The rooms were superclean and the beds super-comfy. The balcony was excellent for having a relaxing glass of wine and for smoking. The air con was working perfectly, which we really loved especially, because of many nights before without A/C in other places. The staff was friendly and helpful - especially the vice manager Mr. Haj. Also the small shopping mall right besides the hotel was handy for having a tasty dinner in the "Cafe Javas". The only minus point was the breakfast buffet of the hotel, which we found poor (eggs tasteless, fruits appeared to be old, coffee without taste). Otherwise we can fully recommend this hotel.

Olutayo B, Rwanda 18/01/2018

This hotel is a very good representative of the brand (or franchise as the case may be). Clean, spacious, friendly staff, good food etc. For me, it is one of the very FEW times that I have not had anything to say regarding hotel services. Slept well too so much so that I overslept one of the days and I NEVER oversleep. Maybe more movie channels that are not only action movies may help some of us, but it is a great place to stay. Internet was stable and quite good. Situated in a mall that gives you other things to do if bored. Great gym, movie theatre in the mall and its 3D etc. Security is good as well. Really, really loved it. A small glitch happened but until I get to the bottom of it, I cannot comment yet. However, services... top notch.

Great rooms, well maintained. Service was a bit lacking though. I asked the front desk for a massage at 7pm, I was told they'd get back to me about availability. They didn't get back to me, rather I called at 9pm only to be told that the masseuse had left. Otherwise it was a good one night stay on my way out of Uganda.

"Hotel and staff are AMAZING!"

worldtravellermark, Kitchener, Canada 12/12/2017

When you hear the term Best Western, you don't always associate it with a standard of quality you list with other larger chains. After the service I received at this hotel, I would challenge any hotel in Entebbe/Kampala to rate themselves even close. Long story short...my expensive DSLR got irreparably damaged on the day I arrived (a Sunday) and I was due to leave for the Bwindi Forest the following day at 7 am. Finding a camera shop open in Uganda on a Sunday is just this side of impossible. Not for this hotel. The staff of this hotel not only found me a car and driver, but researched shops that might have a point and shoot camera that I could buy to at least take pictures during my safari, and that was open late (this was 2 pm). They even kept in touch with the driver to ensure I was getting what I needed, and met me upon my return to make sure I had gotten what I needed and was treated fairly! If I could rate the staff as AMAZING for this post I would. I return in two days, and will be commending them to their head office for their work. Thanks, and WELL DONE!

The hall is big with a big screen projector and the chairs and tables are movable ( you can conform to any meeting style at anytime) --the internet is perfect ( that's like an oasis in the desert of SLOW INTERNET IN UGANDA). Support staff are always there and they are nice .....I finally got a favourite Hotel in Uganda.

JolantaM, Abu Dhabi 27/11/2017

We arrived in Entebbe late in the evening and only needed a hotel for 1 night of sleep as we were departing early the next morning. The Best Western in just 15 minute drive from the Airport and very conveniently located adjacent to Victoria Mall. Airport shuttle was included in the price of the room. The staff were very friendly. The room was nice, clean, and the bathroom was big with a nice shower. Breakfast started early so this was very convenient for us, there was a variety of food, it all tasted good.

vikingpige, Brighton, United Kingdom 10/11/2017

and booked every room in the hotel. It is a modern and stylishly decorated new hotel with wonderful, efficient and friendly staff that take good care of you. I was convening a 4-day international conference here last month and the whole thing went really smoothly, in large part because the staff here are really first class: friendly, capable, efficient and eager to please. Joao, the manager, is also flexible, accommodating and amenable. I received many positive comments about the cuisine at the hotel and was impressed by the quality, standard, variety and creativity of the chef team and the food served. The conference facilities are very good and Bernard, the IT guy, was always on hand to make sure things went smoothly. Let me reiterate that it is the excellent hotel staff that sets this hotel apart from others where we have held our international conferences: Alice, Kumar, Pennie, Bernard, Pamela, Fortunate, Ibrahim, Sharon, Dora, Victoria, Steven – and I could go on – have all been fantastic. Please pass my thanks to them for all hard work, which made my life easier and our conference such a success!

Exemplary customer care from front office to our conference room. IT Guy, Benard, was extremely helpful and ensured that conference went well. Alice(sales and marketing) had a busy schedule but amidst all that, she had the time to ensure that there were no hitches and of course f&b Vanessa, Polly and entire team were on their toes to ensure we were well attended too. Perfect venue for your conference. No regrets.

"Smart, uptown hotel"

890harrietn, Kampala, Uganda 31/10/2017

Best Western GHE is a relatively new entrant in Entebbe City of Uganda. The hotel is located within Victoria Mall so a number of amenities such as shopping, gym, medical clinic, pharmacy and restaurants are nearby. The food was fairly good, as was the service. However, the spread/variety of the buffet appears fairly limited, particularly the dessert section. Many times there were none/not enough pastries. The fruit tastes as if it has been prepared with a knife used to prepare other cooked food/meat. The rooms are extremely well appointed. However, the housekeeping staff is consistently sloppy. They kept neglecting to replace consummables such as lotions, sugar, cream for the complimentary tea service in the room.

A small group from Rock Church San Diego was in Uganda for a men's conference in Masaka. We stayed here after our 26 hour flights from the US. This place is super legit. Maybe one of the nicest hotels I've stayed at while on a mission trip. The hotel is brand new and they didn't take any short cuts while building this gem. Bathrooms have everything from blow dryers to razors. The bed was super comfy. I'm trying to find one thing I didn't like about this place, and I got nothing. The breakfast was on point. Omelet bar and a bunch local favorites. Seriously, if you are reading this trying to make a desicion on whether to stay here or not, take my word. This place is where it's at. I think that's why it was $100/night. In USA. A hotel like this would easily be $300

I had a wonderful time at the Premier Garden Hotel. Very modern hotel and the best food in Uganda. A big shout-out and a round of applause going to the Chefs Kumar and Ramesh for their wonderful service, excellent cuisine and taking care of the individual wishes of their customers. Cannot wait to come back!

Best Western has an awesome corporate/business experience. I was there between 5-7th October, and needless to say that the facilities are of high standards in the region and the staff are excellent. Thank you Fortunate for the help, professionalism and excellent customer service. All the best.

"Wonderful!!"

We had a wonderful beginning to our African adventure when we stayed at the Premiere Garden Hotel.. The hotel is very modern, clean and comfortable. From the moment we were picked up at the airport we felt taken care of. The entire staff was so welcoming, courteous and polite and went out of their way to make us feel welcomed and taken care of. They were incredible!! The complementary breakfast was excellent as well as dinner in the restaurant. The only downside was the pool is still under construction but we were taken to another hotel and were able to use that pool and the driver returned exactly when we had asked them to. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking of spending time in Entebbe.

Best Western has lived to its name in Uganda. From the smiling and welvoming Fortunate at the reception to the chic rooms, this hotel provides value for money. The restaurant was good and the chef willing to accommodate different dietary needs even at a short notice.
