Peaceful stay in Entebbe

The staff and owner at Saffron were great! I had made a date error on my booking as my arrival was actually a day earlier than I had reserved. When I arrived exhausted at 4am, the gracious person at the front desk found me a room despite the confusion that was all my fault, and the next day when I met the owner, he upgraded me to a much nicer room for the remainder of my three night stay! Their location is just across a quiet street from Lake Victoria, and there is a beachfront grassy area for guest use right on the water. I really liked the quiet location and the easy ten minute walk from to a major grocery store. The restaurant was great with a wide variety of choices very reasonably priced. Walking in the area was nice too and there are several other little beachfront bars/restaurants nearby. I would definitely stay there again when visiting Entebbe!

I had a wonderful stay at Saffron. The nicest part was the warm and incredibly accommodating staff. I had a late flight and they were happy to let me check out late from my room. They were always available and were happy to help answer questions and assist me with anything I needed. Their location on the beach in excellent and I really enjoyed have breakfast looking out over Lake Victoria. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice hotel with great views of the lake. The food is fantastic and the hotel staff was very accommodating when we arrived. Upon first arrival we saw were struck by the incredible number of night-flies that were flying around the lights which was quite off-putting. These bugs are harmless but, not something you want in your room or in your bed. When inspecting our room, we noticed the sheets were dirty (most likely from dead night-flies) and so we asked for new sheets. Instead of changing the sheets, the staff decided to upgrade our room to the suit. The new room was beautiful and had many fewer flies because it was on the second floor. We really enjoyed the balcony and the staff even offered to bring our breakfast to our room so we could eat out on the balcony and enjoy the amazing view. At the time of our stay this property was brand new and still in the process of being renovated. The floor was covered by a fake tile plastic and the mirror was not hung up above the sink. After talking to the owner, I was informed that many of these issues are in process of being fixed: mosquito nets for beds have been ordered, updated flooring is being put in, and screens are being placed on windows to prevent night flies. All in all, this is a beautiful property with amazing Indian food. When the property is fully updated it will be fantastic but there is still a lot to do. I would however, try to avoid the night fly season as it is impossible to avoid their swarms.
