Source Of The Smile Hotel & Guesthouse

Top choice guest house in Jinja
Image by

With cool tropical design, a gorgeous garden and pool, this relaxed guesthouse indeed invites smiles. Its Icelandic owner and local staff are helpful and interactive, and the huge buffet breakfast beats most in Uganda. For other meals, there are menus for ordering out. Tiled poolside rooms offer an extra dose of character; otherwise there are cheaper, more conventional rooms out the back.
