I arrived in Kampala late one morning, and decided to do brunch before going out to meet my customers.Interestingly I chose a secluded seat at a corner of a dining room and ordered my meal. As I waited a guy came and sat besides me out of the blue....I thought that is 1st rather intrusive and second quite odd given... More

From Taxi pickup from airport (great company, Stanley, on the 2.5 hour drive from Entebbe Airport to Hotel) to reception to breakfast the next morning - experience was great. Conveniently located to several small shopping centres. Really great breakfast experience on patio overlooking golf course, wish I had time to play. range of options for dinner.

For travelers who want a good conveniently located hotel just outside the main stream busy city centre, and a hotel that looks out to make your stay as comfortable as possible, I would encourage you to try it out. The services are very good and their food is excellent. They have maintained this as their niche since the first time... More

The rooms were quite adequate. The location is convenient being close to a small shopping mall with banks, grocery store, and other shops. Several restaurants of moderate quality are close at hand so convenient for long working days. The front office staff was helpful in getting taxis and other small excursions arranged. The hotel is clean and fairly comfortable. There... More

I recently completed a 5 night stay at the Golf Course Hotel in Kampala. The hotel has potential -good location, quiet surroundings and fairly comfortable rooms. It is billed as a business person’s hotel in the city. While it is certainly close to center city my stay was marred by a few troubling service lapses. The business center was sadly... More

The hotel is located next to 2 shopping malls, which make it very convenient for long stays. Very friendly staff. Avoid rooms on road side that could be noisy early morning on weekdays. Tilapia fillet on restaurant downstairs strongly recommended. There is restaurant called Java Cafe just few meters away with very good food as well.

Hello, I spent 4 nights at Golf Course Hotel in Sep 13, the overall feedback is “the hotel just exceed my expectations” in terms of services, locations and staff. - The location is super, near major shopping center from which you can find some restaurants and shops, convenient location to stay within the city. - The room is really large,...

8 days stay at the Golf Course Hotel prior to moving into long term accommodation. Initial reaction was very positive with a large room, airy and spacious with a fine view over the golf course. Huge bathroom with very large corner bath and a shower. Comfortable bed. Quiet. Decent choice of restaurants, both outside (Patio) and a Steak type restaurant... More

Enjoyed staying at the hotel. As the name states the hotel overlooks the gold course, providing for a very pleasant location to take breakfast. Rooms are large, a bit dated, but generally quite good. Gym is in the adjacent shopping centre, certainly not the greatest, lots of broken machines, but at least enough working for a workout. Staff are friendly... More

The hotel is well located with 2 malls next to it and was fairly close to my business meetings. Breakfast is good with plenty of options and variety from day to day. Rooms are in good condition with reliable wifi. There are several restaurant options for meals so it doesn't get monotonous. The Revolving Restaurant is a must-visit.
