We started our tour here. The hotel was only a short distance from the airport and offered comfortable accommodation. The restaurant was particularly good - try the stuffed avocado as a starter and the delicious Zanzibar style fish curry as a main. You won't be disappointed. Make sure that you use the safe in the room for any valuables though!

we stayed here at the beginning and end of our 2 week trip to Uganda - it was a great place to stay - close to the airport which was welcome after and before long haul flights, the staff were delightful, food fine and swimming pool great. We loved it here, it was just what we wanted.

The Boma is an old fashioned, small hotel. It has been recently refurbished so all the rooms are nicely decorated with everything working. The gardens are lovely, food is great and the area is really quiet.

Stayed here 1 night during East Africa safari. Arrived late & left early next day. The gardens & pool area looked good. Room spacious but bed very small. A lot of noise made during the night by staff & jets made for a mostly sleepless night. Staff polite without being overly friendly. Not sure about recommending this property.

My friend and I stayed here for three nights and were quickly bought over by the charm and character of both the hotel and the manager. The hotel is set in lovely grounds and has an excellent pool area as well as two great dining areas. The food is fantastic and the rooms impeccably clean. It is well-located for the... More

We had a brief overnight prior to heading to Bwindi for gorilla trekking. The guesthouse is near the airport which makes for easy and quick access when arriving and departing. The rooms are nice, service is good, and the grounds are beautiful. Our dinner was high quality, and reasonably priced as such.

We had a wonderful last night in Uganda at this boutique hotel. It was a sigh of relief to enter this tranquil place after a long drive. The rooms were large and quite unique with very tasteful decor, homely but also sophisticated. There were beautiful gardens with a nice-looking swimming pool which we didn't get a chance to try.

We stayed here for one night after arriving in Uganda. Our room for three (2 adults; 1 teenager) was comfortable with a king-sized and a single bed. The lodge has two restaurants, and we used both; dinner overlooking the garden and breakfast adjacent to the pool. Both offered a range of quality options. WiFi was available throughout the lodge.
