As I write the Base sound from the bar is reverberating in my room and has been all evening despite many trips to the management nothing much changed It has been like this most of the week though a couple of days they did turn it down.

In this era of ICT services being at the fore front of hotel after sales services, one never expected services like wifi to be inaccessible to guests who spent a whole day in a hotel conference.....only to be told the service is only given to hotel residents.......Does the hotel realise that it gets more money from conferences than hotel residences?...

We spent £30k flying people from across the world for a five-day training workshop, and the wi-fi connection literally broke every ten minutes. Given our course depended on Internet access, It ruined the whole thing. The management were useless in fixing the problem, and pretty blasé about our increasingly panicked pleas for help. Three days in, they finally produced a... More

The upside: space, and lots of it. The open restaurant, lobby area, rooms and grounds all seem to be a relaxing reprieve from the bustling, dusty streets of Bugolobi. The downside: noisy weekends of kids at the pool and loud music for various events, crappy wifi. If you are here for business and need wifi the whole time, bring a... More

Kampala has few mid range hotels - you either pay big prices for luxury or slum it - but the SS is a (sort of) happy medium. I wouldn't call it a very good hotel - rooms are dingy (especially bathroom areas) and service can be infuriatingly slow and unresponsive to ones needs. But you get a clean a/c room... More

I stayed here for 3 nights in the Kampala 5 room on the ground floor. The hotel has an open garden with a pool and sitting area. The bar on the 1st floor above the main entrance and lobby is open towards this area and has very loud disco music every night. The sound bounced against the front door of... More

I spent 3 nights from Aug 4th - Aug 6th at this resort. The place is wonderful, if you are a nature lover this will surely excite you. Move around the place and your mood gets uplifted. Very tastefully designed rooms, all rooms receive ample sun light. FOR: 1. Ambiance, Greenery, Natural surroundings 2. Upkeep of the place is very... More

I found the Silver Springs Hotel in Kampala absolutely wonderful during my 5 day stay in June 2014. The staffs cleaning the bedrooms were wonderful. The staffs at the restaurants (breakfast and dinner) were wonderful (recommend the Pizza). The customer care and reception staffs were wonderful. I was involved in a conference; the “conference” staff were very very good. Be... More

It's located outside of the downtown area and there really isn't anything to see or do within walking distance but the property and staff make up for the location and it's an easy taxi ride to downtown. A resort atmosphere with a nice pool, good restaurant, and a fenced in, secure property. We had a triple room which was very... More
