Hotel has a very good location as next to Garden city & Nakumatt oasis malls. The rooms are big and spacious but the overall building/facilities look very old and needs upgrading. Stayed for 7 nights and breakfast has been good & staff very courteous and helpful. No complaints except if they can renovate and upgrade the building

All in all, a good hotel with decent amenities: Small but well-equipped gym (Technogym gear in new condition), massage, well-stocked breakfast and large, well-appointed rooms with coffee-making facilities. The location is near perfect: Right next to Garden City with its multitude of shops, and easy access to boda-bodas and taxis. Why only three stars then? One star I deduct because...

Dear AndyH70 Thank you for taking the time to review the Golf Course Hotel and it is highly regrettable to hear that you were unable to use the pool during your recent visit.

The stay at the Golf Course Hotel was one of the more positive stays in my recent travels. Although the buildings are now getting older, the rooms are of a great standard, the staff exceptionally courteous and the facilities are well equipped. With four in house restaurants it makes for a very safe and secure stay in Uganda.

First trip to Kampala - the standard of this hotel does not match those across the Asia Pacific for business travellers. It's spacious - yes - but feels like a three star hotel. The rooms are big, but curtains were coming off the rails...bathroom was a little basic and the small kitchenette not entirely clean. The ironing board was dilapidated....

Although this hotel seems to be in disrepair on the outside and has a slightly dated look on the inside, the stay was very comfortable. The rooms are large and the bathrooms adequate. Beautiful swimming pool and friendly, helpful staff. The only negative was the unreliable wifi connectivity. I will stay here again. Ask for a golf course view room,...

Spacious, clean and comfortable room, a nice spacious bathroom too. Friendly and helpful staff (Internet access had a problem in my room, but was promptly fixed after reporting the issue). Also has a nice breakfast spread - easy to pack on a few extra pounds whilst staying here! Definitely the best place I have stayed at in Kampala thus far.
