The place also offers many other types of food including wood fire pizza but we didnt order this. There was a cinference on at the time and... More

The porter at this hotel was actually so helpful he became painful at times! Great hotel, friendly staff, clean. Very nice restaurants and interesting traditional as well as continental food choices at buffets. Try the ground bean sauce served with everything!

I stayed here for a conference in March and the hotel and guest rooms were spotless. The grounds were beautifully manicured and staff seemed to be working around the clock to keep it that way! The pizza was delicious, as were the breakfast and lunch buffets. The air con was very welcome and the rooms and bathrooms were large and... More

As an organisation we have used this hotel situated in one of the Kampala suburbs called Bugolobi. It's great value for money. If new to Uganda you get to see the surbubs in Kampala. The rooms are clean and attractive. The conference services are good. It can be noisy on weekends or days when they host weddings.

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
