White Horse Inn is located on Makanga Hill, in the centre of Kabale town, just off the main road to Kisoro district. The turning is right before the Post Office to your right.
White Horse Inn gets its name from the former European settlers who rode their white horses on the hill in the area formerly referred to as Kigezi district. In 1922, a settler’s wife, who came to be known as Keishamaza, converted her personal house into a lodge in order to provide settlers with accommodation while in the region. The hotel grew in size to become the only hotel providing high level accommodation.
The hotel was later taken over by the Government of Uganda and was managed by the now defunct Uganda Hotels.
With the era of privatisation that swept through Uganda in the 1990’s, the hotel was sold to private individuals who have preserved the unique attributes of this jewel of Kabale town and while at the same time improved on its standards.
A number of world dignitaries like the former president of The United States of America, Jimmy Carter and Microsoft founder Bill Gates have in the past been honored guests of our hotel.
A number of summits and high level Bi-lateral meetings between Uganda and Rwanda have been held and continue to be held at the White Horse Inn.
The whitehorse Inn has 39 standard rooms, 1 suite and 1 presidential suite (two bedrooms) are available at the White Horse Inn. The standard rooms come in the form of cottages, seven of which are inter-connected and convertible to semi-suites. From the linen on the beds to the drapes on the windows, a touch of class is evident and an attention to detail is clearly paid.
All the rooms are self contained, have satellite TV (DSTV) and a 24- hour access telephone to the reception for anything ranging from an extra blanket to a midnight snack.
