As visitors to Kampala know, it is a crowded, hectic city, an exhausting place to travel in. So when we saw the tripadvisor reports for Banda Inns, and the enticing website pictures, we thought the reports might be too good to be true. They aren't. From the minute you enter the secluded and peaceful compound, surrounded by trees, and experience the warm welcome from Steven, Asteria and their staff, you know you are in a home from home and going to be well looked after. The rooms are spacious with comfortable beds and clean, functioning facilities, and the variety of fruits and cooked dishes for breakfast is a treat. We enjoyed sitting on the lounge verandah savouring our breakfast and later relaxing in armchairs on the balcony outside our upstairs room. For birders, note the presence of African Scops Owl at twilight on the wires along the access lane from Tank Hill Road and the sound of Barbets from the surrounding trees. Nothing was too much trouble: late breakfast, flexible check-out if room not needed, facility to leave clothes and bags when travelling up country, complementary washing, even ironing! We'd thoroughly recommend Banda Inns to anyone travelling to Kampala. It's a fantastic peaceful haven only a ten minute boda-boda ride from the bustling city centre.
