Kampala, Uganda
Reviewed 1 March 2016 via mobile

Like I said. Kampala has a number of hotels and fairway though old wouldn't rank amongst one of the most reputable hotels in its class. That aside I am a fair regular to their Indian fusion restaurant. The Cheese NANS Are To Die For. The sauces on offer are made to acceptable standards so is their wallet friendly price list....

This is very old building started on 1972. Rooms are not modern. No basic amenities like kettle/tea makers. Bathrooms are small. Not very clean too! There is good Asian Restaurant inside hotel compound. Front desk service is good, appreciated. Slow wifi. Need renovations.

However, one of our core values is continuous improvement; we periodically revamp our services and facilities to meet the changing needs of our guests.

Today we had the worst food ever. At lunch one of the dishes was overcooked spaghetti And then viola!! Pizza made with cheap chemical bottled tomato sauce/ketchup. Really disgusting and an insult to that beautiful Italian dish.

Of the three Kampala hotels in this price range I stayed at, this is easily the best. The grounds contain well maintained gardens and although walkways and hallways are unfinished (typical of Africa), the Fairway's Executive Room options are as the photos depict: brand new; well designed; immaculate. The strength of this hotel is its staff, who are extremely friendly...

When you have an old building you can repaint, re-furnish, and put up pictures, but it is still an old building. There was clearly a semi-successful effort to spruce up the lobby and rooms, but generally for the same amount of money, or for a little more money, you can find a higher quality hotel. Two strong positives: attentive and...
