I stayed one night (the night before heading to the airport) and really enjoyed my stay. I'd been there many times before for dinner, but had never stayed the night, until recently. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The room doesn't have air condition, but a powerful fan. When I stayed there it wasn't hot, so it wasn't... More

Entebbe is a hectic little town so it's wonderful to relax inside the Gately. The room I stayed in was nicely furnished with tasteful interior decor, lots of attention to detail and spotlessly clean. I ate in the restaurant a couple of times and the food and wine was very good. The owners and staff were friendly and most helpful.... More

I arrived in Entebbe, tired after a long day's travel and was welcomed at the airport with a very broad smile and a "hello madam - You're welcome!". This set the tone of things to come.
