Fort Motel is a converted private home in Fort Portal, Uganda. Fort Portal is set in the Rwenzori mountains, and is conveniently within easy driving distance of Queen Elizabeth National Park and Murchison National Park.
The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The hotel has a generator so that the guest is protected from local brownouts.
The hotel has a small dining room/bar and a pleasant outside garden seating area.
It is conveniently located less than a quarter mile from the center of town and adjacent to the Toro Golf Course. Rooms are priced between $40 and $100 dollars and include breakfast.
The hotel also features a set dinner menu with a choice of main courses and dessert at a fixed price.
I found the management and staff to be very attentive, courteous and pleasant to deal with.
Due to travelling commitments we only stayed for two nights. However, we were very impressed with the Fort Motel.
The rooms were particularly attractive and comfortable and the blackout curtains were very effective and enabled us to have a lie-in.
We requested a
basic room with an en-suite shower. Some of the other rooms were luxurious and
had features such as roll-topbaths.
The restaurant area is small but the food was to a high standard and had many unusual and individual touches. It was a pleasure to eat-in at the restaurant.
The garden is pristine and has views over Fort Portal.
The owner and staff are very welcoming and friendly
Fort Motel was truly excellent.
