Serene......the environment within the hotel grounds was serene. Even before seeing the rooms, one could tell that this is a place where one can work and rest... Splendid......the rooms have a homey feel to them right from the first glance. Also, the staff are very courteous and have undergone good training. It is clearly evident in their guest relations..... Spectacular......the... More

If only every hotel cared about their customers' experience as Ryan's Bay. The staff were very friendly and helpful, whether one needed directions, a taxi, food, a drink... The rooms were very clean, nicely decorated and had great views! The price is a little on the steep side, but if one does not want the middle-of-town bustle of GoldCrest, Ryan's... More

Ryan's Bay Hotel is a well appointed hotel not far from the centre of Mwanza. Mwanza is filled with people and vehicles of various descriptions but once in the hotel's boundaries it is a quiet and pleasant environment. The hotel staff looked after us well. We were met by a taxi at the airport and we continued to use that... More

I stayed here for 4 nights whilst exploring Mwanza. The hotel staff were discreet, pleasant and very helpful. They went to great lengths to help me find the means to wrap a painting for transport without it being damaged. The rooms are airy, clean and mosquito free. The pool is fun, clean and just about big enough for a daily... More
