We had an awesome experiance at the Fort Motel; I can’t recommend it highly enough.

We picked the Fort Motel because of the rooms and the in-room...

Home and family away from home. Fort Motel is serene. Total Bliss! I'm back home in South Africa and left only with good memories of Fort Portal, Western Uganda. The tourism region and food basket of Uganda. And the people of Fort Portal are equally warm.

We spent the weekend at this hotel as we try and stay at a different location whenever we are visiting Fort Portal. The staff were polite and the views from the pool area extremely pleasing. The property is clearly well established and it is to this end that it has perhaps begun to fray at the edges. The door to...

The Fort Motel is indeed a jewel in the Fort. What caught my attention most is the beautiful, well manicured gardens - taking full advantage of the wonderful climate. The variety of plants and flowers just great. The rooms are very good too - Standard rooms are... well standard, but very neat and adequate. The new wing with, executive rooms,...

This is a pretty good hotel, although I stayed at far better places for the price. The staff are friendly and efficient too. On this particular occasion, the booking process did not work for me and my family. We booked a family room but ended up in 3 separate rooms, which made the stay rather unpleasant. Having said that, I...
