Mbarara has a new hotel called the Acacia Hotel on Kabale Road. It’s very convenient for the University and Hospital. It’s also near enough to various bars and restaurants.
I liked staying at the Acacia Hotel because it is clean and modern. I was particularly happy to get away from other noisy establishments. The staff are friendly and very efficent. The menu has a good selection of African food and offered plenty of choices. The daily ‘specials’ always seemed to be differnt from the usual fare and good value.
Some rooms don’t have mosquito nets (not everybody needs them) so make sure you request a mosquito net, if required.
I paid UGX 60,000 per night and thought it was good value.
