I organised a conference in the Golf Course Hotel this October (2012) and I wanted to write a review because I was very satisfied with the service of the conference managers.
First of all, the conference has incredible rooms, even for very big events like weddings, etc. There have different kind of rooms, so you might find exactly what you are looking for.
Everything was prepared in advance, and I had a good communcation with the team previous to the event (all via email, as I was in Europe).
I love the catering, for the coffee breaks and the lunch. It was a good mixure of Ugandan traditional dishes and local products but with something to satisfy every taste.
But what it positively surprise me the most was the flexibility of the event managers, as I had to change the rooms and the number of PAX several times.
I also stay in the hotel for five nights. My room was huge and nice, with a nice view to the golf park. I found the price quite expensive, but I can not compare with other hotels as I have not been in others in Kampala. Breakfast is nice, you have a cook to make your eggs in front of you and this kind of things.
I also used the transport pick-up of the hotel and there, I would have loved to get some advice from the reception, as I almost lost my plane as I was not informed when booking about the incredible traffic jam in Kampala.
Ah! You can not change money in the hotel but you can pay there in dollars.
Overall, good, especially regarding the conference, event and catering services.
Ask for a room with views to the golf park.
