This hotel is well placed on a hill overlooking the town of Kabale. It is very well priced for the budget traveller and offers good wi fi in the restaurant, bar and reception area. It is well located for anyone wanting to get to know the area better and to access the border to Rwanda, Lake Bunyoni and Bwindi National...

The hotel is set on a hill with beautiful views of the town; however, the only great thing about the hotel is the service. The service was exceptional as employees went out of their way to meet our requests. On the other hand, the hotel could do with a renovation as there were asbestos roofs in some areas. The standard...

This place is located in a hill, so good views of the city. Nice place. The price is in accordance to the service (as rooms or food), and adequate and fast in comparison to other places. Food was good. The playground is old-fashioned and in bad condition, but at least there is a playground!

The carpets were stinking. The room looks very creepy. The washroom unclean. The hotel is located in a beautiful place. They can do a better job with the rooms and food. No variety in food. No WiFi in the rooms only available in the reception and bar area

There doesn't seem to be many good or decent hotel or guest houses in Kabale. White will definitely fall into one of the decent to good ones. They have different rates for different rooms but the cheaper rates will definitely show that it is cheap. I always seem to come here when it's cold and they never have any heaters...

I have stayed at the White Horse Inn several times. This review is as a result of my experience in their renovated executive wing. The furnishing, ambiance is a big difference from the old wing that is in great need of renovations. The new executive wing is a space to wind down or catch up with work. The rooms have...

There was a power failure in the area and when I asked why they did'nt use the generator they seemed very suprised I should want light but reluctantly...
