    The staff were welcoming and pleasant. The room provided was immaculately clean as was the swimming pool area. Well done to the cleaning staff!

    the breakfast was poor in choice and quality. I have stayed here at this hotel many times on various short trips to Zanzibar From Dar. It feels that the breakfast has been neglected. Additionally whilst the skip area opposite the hotel has been moved (thankfully)- the smell of the waste remains when walking past - very offensive especially if venturing out for a meal/drink somewhere else

    Food was really yummy to the tummy. Staff were dedicated. Environment was tidy. Nice simple rooms. Service by waiter and other staff was the best. Very nice building and enmities in side.

    Fairs agreed while booking were different and price charged at the counter was different. We had request assistance on arrangement or recommendation on places to visit while our stay but we did not get any assistance. Every one was looking for their commissions/ interests first than service

    The hotel was immaculate, the staff friendly and helpful. The service and food at the rooftop restaurant was great.

    Being woken at 5am by the cleaners clattering around the hotel starting their daily activities.
