Service is reliably sub-par

The expat manager seems to be trying hard to rectify repeated bad experiences; but the other employees seem content to just get by.

It was some time, mid 2014. I passed by with a few friends. The scenery is good, creating a lovely ambiance. The service was good though much concentration was put on our foreign counterparts. We, nevertheless had a great time.....the steak is really tasty!!!

Back on one of my regular trips to Uganda I was unfortunately not able to stay at Gately Inn as they were fully booked but decided to stop in for a meal on my way through to Kampala. I was welcomed by their friendly staff who went out of their way to make me feel at home. I ordered the... More

Unfortunately the lunches we had here did not meet our expectations. The service was not very proactive either. The atmosphere would be great was it not for the main road from Kampala roaring by. Nice little curio shop, though.

By chance we looked in to try dinner and were very happy with the outcome. The steak was quite good ; the pork noise totes were excellent. I had a chicken Caesar salad; the dressing was more oil and vinegar but it was fine. Food preparation was a little slow but we have become used to that in Uganda? It... More

We arrived in Entebbe for an afternoon flight much earlier than expected and decided to drop in at the Gately Inn for breakfast. So glad we did, because Entebbe Airport does not share the same ambience! The coffee was excellent and the breakfast menu was varied with some great options. We went for the fruit/muesli/yogurt combo and banana pancakes..... all... More

An ideal place to stop for a meal before a late flight or just for an evening out. Secure parking. The Thai food they serve is the best I've had in Africa, the ginger Tilapia was particularly good. Slightly more expensive than some but worth it.
