Service at the reception is okay. The hotel thrives on groups doing workshops and taking a buffet. Weekends are for local festivities (garden lively/noisy). Chefs are Indian, so the Indian food is quite nice, pizza's too. Staff omits to tell you upfront that key ingredients lack: they just serve you the gin tonic without the tonic, saying that there's no...

I stayed at the Silver Springs for a week in November 2015, for a conference organised by my company. On a positive side, the staff is friendly... On the other side, they are very ingrained, slow and unmotivated (I heard complaints about being underpaid, working long hours, etc.). That's probably why it takes ages to get served and even longer...

I stayed for 2 nights. Breakfast was very ordinary with very few choices for vegetarian guests. I had dinner one night and to get a piece of lemon was difficult. It was never brought. In the breakfast, they could not provided suger free sweetner. Wifi was with basic speed for whatsapp only.

Silver Springs and Salama Apartments were the best during my business visits to Kampala for the last three years. Mora than enjoying tropical wheather and local atmosphere of beloved Uganda, the classy hotel with exelent service were the most impressive to me. This makes me dream of retirement in Uganda for ever.

We stayed at the Silver Springs for 2 weeks while conducting a workshop there. The rooms are clean and basic - although the beds are hard and the pillows leave something to be desired. Unfortunately hot water for a shower was hit and miss, with at least half the showers I had were with cold/cool water. The rooms were well...

I recently stayed at the hotel and this was my second visit. The ambience, staff, food are par excellence and will make you keep coming for more. The only aspect the management needs to work upon is internet connectivity especially at the Dar Es Salaam suites. The connection remains unreliable most of the time. Except for this, the hotel matches...

Unfortunately this wasn't a pleasure trip as I was recovering from Recent Surgery and I was not very mobile needing a wheelchair to get around. my Son and I were sent here for 2 weeks until a flight home could be arranged by our insurance company. From the start Staff made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed....

It seems the management of Silver Springs Hotel take our comments seriously....the last time and the current change can easily depict it.....now undergoing refurbishment, and the internet connectivity is so good and fast almost everywhere within the hotel premises. Thank you Hotel management for the tremendous improvement!!
