Compared to other accommodation visited on our trip to Uganda this was above average. Good rooms, effective mosquito nets and really good food available from adjoining restaurant. Very big portions and very friendly service. Breakfast was also good with best selection of all places we stayed in on our trip. Would certainly recommend this place.

I love discovering that someone has uprooted themselves and transplanted into a completely foreign place. The owner of this place has done just that and has built a comfortable place in Jinja to which he made us very welcome. We were nearing the end of a two week trip, including an up-country sojourn in Pallisa (no water etc) so were...

I checked out 2friends in Jinja last December for a meal.We ordered for the mixed platter along side chips, chicken curry alongside vegetable rice and i must say the food did not disappoint. The place has a very cool breeze blowing and good location as well as the staff are very welcoming and polite.

A nice guest house with big rooms and good showers. Pleasantly located outside of the business of the city. Restaurant is ok and breakfast is tasty and fresh. Certainly an advise to stay if you're in the are.

I refuse to stay anywhere else in Jinja. Having stayed at the "fancy" resorts in Jinja, I always prefer 2 Friends. I stay at 2 Friends for between 2-4 weeks at a time for business trips (since 2015) and will recommend it to anyone. The staff are extremely friendly, the Guest House is quiet, the rooms are very clean and...

My wife loved it! The decor makes you feel Africa as it should be. You are surrounded by style and the staff in friendly and aware but not intruding. The food is also good and after having breakfast we had to skip lunch. They were doing some construction on site and that worries me. We were offered a small discount...

We were a team of 15 staying for 2-3 nights at 2 Friends after 10 days in remote areas of Uganda. We were met at our bus in the parking lot by welcoming smiles and total attention to our needs and requests. The folks I emailed with questions and reservations through the previous months individually greeted me. Rooms were lovely...

We spent 2 nights here during our visit to Uganda. The hotel is quiet, the staff are helpful and friendly and the food was lovely. We were moved to a poolside room as there was building work going on while we stayed (we had booked a family room in the other block). The work did not detract from our stay...
