I booked this place as it had a 4 star standard and looked great on the pictures. However it did not really match up to that. When we arrived no one was picking up ur bags to carry them to the room. I don´t think it was because they don´t do it, the people working down in the lobby area... More

I have been staying at this hotel on my visits to Kampala for several years. Whilst it isn't in the class of Serena it has spacious rooms. However with the elapse of time the hotel is not quite inhabitable. I have been moved to 2 rooms and I'm about to be moved again and the Airconditioners don't work. I probably... More

I stayed in Golf Course appr. 10 times. I always loved to be close to the centre of Kampala and neighbouring Garden City Shopping Mall. Moreover the Steaks in the Hotels REstaurant are great and the rooms big and tasteful. There is nothing to complain. Only breakfast area could be bigger and better organized.

Great location in the middle of the city adjacent to 2 shopping malls and a golf club. Excellent conference facilities with adequate wifi. Spacious parking. Good, small swimming pool and access to gym facilities in the mall: there are also a couple of stationary bikes in the corridor on each floor. Spacious rooms with the ones on the back viewing...

Hotel has a very good location as next to Garden city & Nakumatt oasis malls. The rooms are big and spacious but the overall building/facilities look very old and needs upgrading. Stayed for 7 nights and breakfast has been good & staff very courteous and helpful. No complaints except if they can renovate and upgrade the building

All in all, a good hotel with decent amenities: Small but well-equipped gym (Technogym gear in new condition), massage, well-stocked breakfast and large, well-appointed rooms with coffee-making facilities. The location is near perfect: Right next to Garden City with its multitude of shops, and easy access to boda-bodas and taxis. Why only three stars then? One star I deduct because... More

Dear AndyH70 Thank you for taking the time to review the Golf Course Hotel and it is highly regrettable to hear that you were unable to use the pool during your recent visit.

The stay at the Golf Course Hotel was one of the more positive stays in my recent travels. Although the buildings are now getting older, the rooms are of a great standard, the staff exceptionally courteous and the facilities are well equipped. With four in house restaurants it makes for a very safe and secure stay in Uganda.
