This hotel has all the amenities you need on business or for pleasure and is really well priced with rooms at about £70 per night. A few nice restaurants serving Thai or Indian food, conference facilities, and many meeting places.
I liked the pool area located in a courtyard with lush greenery and a beauty room. Great location, 5 minutes walk to the part where you can pick up a ferry to Zanzibar. Bank machine opposite the hotel.
They did not have a concierge or any local knowledge about touristy things to do. I always had to wait long for the staff to speak to me at the reception. I asked to borrow scissors (after being ignored for 5 minutes) and was told very sternly that I “better return them very soon”. Waited at least 25 minutes for food to arrive at the poolside cafe, after waiting for about 20 minutes for someone to come and serve us.
Very helpful staff in restaurants upstairs though and the food and the view over the sea were great.
