Masindi Hotel was Founded in 1923 by the East Africa Railways and Harbors Company, the hotel is situated in Masindi acting as a sanctuary for travelers going through the area.
It was under the government though around 2000, the hotel was privatized hence renovations were made so as to keep its originality i.e colonial design. It has provided accommodation to very many people including popular celebrities like Ernest Hemingway who took on a fable tour to the district.
Unfortunately, while still on his way he got involved in a fatal accident when two planes crashed i.e at Murchison Falls and Butiaba airstrip. However, he just got injured and nursed while staying at Masindi Hotel. Others like Humphrey Bogart and Catherine Hepburn also stayed at the hotel while shooting the movie “African Queen” at Masindi port.
