Like others, we stayed at The Boma for a day room before our very late night departure. As others mentioned the property is 10 minutes from the airport (EBB). We were greeted on arrival and shown to our room (#15). For what we needed it was fine, but nothing out of the ordinary. After checking the place out we went...

After a hard week of chimp and gorilla trekking, this was our last lodging place before the long flight home to cold and miserable England,. On arrival, our first impression was not wrong. The rooms were a good size, very clean and well lit. There is no A/C, but the fan helped. Patrick, the manager and staff were so helpful...

The Boma is a wonderful place to stay. So much so that the lack of air conditioning is a minor! Beautiful rooms, very friendly staff & great meals.Welcomed by tall cold local G&T and inviting pool. Safe, clean and spacious with a lending library as a bonus

On a week long Uganda trip 3 of us stayed in 6 different properties in Uganda, with this being a perfect 24hr chill out before we few home. Lovely colonial feel to it, handy for the airport & the Botanical Gardens, nice food & very friendly. Great way to end a holiday & couldn't recommend it more. Perfect.

I stayed here one night after arriving in Entebbe before leaving for Bwindi Forrest. The best thing about this hotel is that it is very close to the airport. I stayed in the one of the rooms just off the main lobby so it didn't feel very special. The room was adequate for my needs. There was no AC and...

I stayed here on two nights before and after flights into/out of Entebbe airport, which meant that I didn't really get to enjoy the hotel as much as I would have liked to. Nevertheless, the experience I did get was excellent. Because of it's proximity to the airport it does mean that it isn't particularly well placed for down town...

Have thoroughly enjoyed staying at the Boma Cottages which are quiet, well-stocked, well-furnished and truly cosy. Stayed in order to beat the Kla-EBB traffic but will definitely be back with a group of girlfriends for a weekend in EBB! I cannot thank the staff (and proprietor) enough for being truly accommodating! I highly recommend!

Boma is as beautiful as all the other reviewers have said. Walk through the gardens and encountered a lot of mosquitoes as well as loads of birds and flowers-- be aware to use inspect spray outside. Stayed 2 nights, 1 at beginning of my trip and one at the end. Room 1 is down a short hall from reception adjacent...

Lovely quaint hotel. Close and convenient to the Entebbe airport in a nice part of town. Food was good and service was really nice. The rooms don't have aircon but there are fans. Beds were comfortable and everything was in working order.

I am looking forward to my 22nd visit to The Boma Hotel. After the hectic days of preparation before going to Uganda and a long flight I'm always grateful for a day or two of relaxation at this wonderful intimate hotel, where guests are made to feel so welcome by the lovely staff. Very clean comfortable bedrooms, and very good...
