A little overpriced but with excellent services. It's hard to find a hotel in Africa. Really good! Just outside of Kampala, quiet, good food,.. Probably not 200$ a night worth, but if u book trough an agent you can get it for 100$.

Whenever I travel to Kampala on work, I prefer staying at Silver Springs. The staff is polite as well as efficient. The restaurant has a wide menu which never disappoints. Quite often they have BBQ dinners which seem very popular with the local crowd. The breakfasts have a decent variety and apart from their fresh fruit juices, everything else is... More

The hotel has large rooms which are in rondavel style chalets (some with multiple rooms). Air conditioning, TV and bed nets all provided. The buildings are very attractive and the pool in the centre is nice and well cared for - not huge but a good size. The restaurants are very good and the breakfast is excellent. The major downsides... More

After a crazy 15 hour overland trip in our Nomad Tours truck we finally arrived at Silver Springs at 11pm. The only place we could erect our tents was at the end of a parking lot, right next to the construction site that was still active and rather noisy. We decided to upgrade. What a pleasure. From the coffee our... More

Checked in on 11th January at 1am and the security guy insisted on checking our bags one by one yet we had almost 9 bags among 4. So far so good. Rooms not too shabby,friendly staff. This is a place I would revisit

It was my 1st trip to Uganda which I think is a wonderful country with a warm and friendly feel to it. The hotel is billed as one of the best but in truth its very basic. There was a flat screen TV but very limited channels mostly Ugandan. The worst issue was noise. There are pathways between the rooms... More

My colleague and I were booked into the Silver Springs Hotel by our hosts the Federation of Motorsports Clubs of Uganda to be our base for some motorsports safety training. Booking in at 04,30 on the Saturday morning was a breese even at that time and the porters who showed us to our rooms were efficient and polite. The rooms... More

Looking for a hotel for our last night in Kampala, we settled on the Silver Springs. Booked online through a well-known agency, it wasn't particularly cheap. In fact, I was amazed to see that one reviewer paid $70 as it cost me more than TWICE that amount. Check in was very efficient and details of our booking were all there.... More

I thought this hotel was pretty good for the price. It's located in Bugolobi, which is a few kms from the main city of Kampala, but you can easily get a share taxi to the city center for 1,000 shs and it's a brief ride so no worries. The suites come equipped with a small fridge, plasma tv, sofa and... More
