4 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

The hotel is conveniently located. Taxis are available just outside the hotel entrance. The hotel staffs are really helpful, good in room service, calling a cab, helping with the luggage. The breakfast could have been little better with more options available. However, the open air restaurant in the evening has a nice environment. Good property

The positives about this hotel are the efficient staff and convenient location in Kampala. The rooms are functional and spacious. The food was very good with portions that really fill you up. Wifi was extremely slow.

Stayed in a recently renovated room that was well designed and very comfortable. Don’t be put off by the exterior of the hotel corridors, which appear much older and do reflect the luxury of the rooms.

Good team of gym Trainers (staff), Pias on the spin and John on stretch and muscle relaxation. It is a must try. Well done guys. However the breakfast assortment is average. I continue to stay 4 more days to go.

The Fairway hotel has really good food and curry's. Excellent cuisine. The staff are really friendly and helpful, the locality to the garden mall is good and convenient. The rooms are sadly out dated, plumbing is poor, hot water is interrupted, and the bathroom just does not fit the price you pay.

My friends from South Africa stayed here for 3 days and they loved it. They mentioned they would definitely come back. I met them for dinner at the Asian Fusion restaurant on Tuesday. My first time visit was impressive. Very airy with the sound of a live performance band playing in the background. Not too loud to distract our conversation.... More

Very helpful staff, good comfort and location, in the vibrant Kampala. You get a good balance quality / price. The manager arranged and could fix an issue with due dilligence and professionalism. The hotel is close to best parts of Town. Restaurant is very good Indian and asian fusion cuisine.

My colleague and I were traveling on business and we were booked into this hotel. The hotel is located centrally, which is nice. The room was decent with a balcony overlooking the front of the hotel. The downside to that was the restaurants downstairs that had very loud music. Although the music died down by about 10pm, if you're an... More

I stayed in the Executive rooms. Staff are mostly courteous, only one or two may appear aloof especially if they (by my perception) appear to be Senior. Guest Relations Manager was helpful and jovial. Some front desk Staff may need training in telephone etiquette. It may help to invest in dock stations in the Executive rooms for increased value.
