The public areas of this hotel are lovely. There is a large open courtyard in the centre where you can eat or drink. There is a separate chinese restaurant but we didn't eat there. The rooms let it down a bit. The bathroom fittings are very old and the night we were there there wasn't any hot water for a shower. There is a pool but it wasn't very inviting and looked very shallow - more for show than for swimming I would say. The food was nice with a good choice but the service was very slow, even for Tanzania standards. We had a problem when checking out as we wanted to pay in TZ shillings and they wanted us to pay in Dollars which worked out to be more money when converted back to Pounds. They backed down only when we said we would pull up our email where they had quoted us in shillings. We would stay again if we were in Dodoma.
