"Great location for the beach and Stonetown "
In the old Stonetown, very easy to get lost in this old town but we were very close to beach so found it a bit easier to get back to the hotel. Great restaurant on top where we ate on arrival at night and turned out to be the best of all the places we ate afterwards. Beds were comfy, good international TV, bathroom and shower very nice. We had no view at all so understand we should have asked for upper floors but did not spend much time in the room

"Good Location, Pretty Hotel"
Hotel is a great launching off place from Stone Town and beyond. The staff is very attentive, grounds are nice and the pool Is lovley. Note, they do not serve alcohol if that matters to you. Air con worked well and beds were comfy. The breakfast and dinner was more than adequate and yet nothing spectacular. Adjoining rooms nice for families and balconies were enjoyable. The hotel will be even better when the promenade is done.

"Nice hotel with staff eager to please"
Hotel accommodated our request for two twin beds. For the first night, they gave us two separate rooms and did not charge us the extra rate. The furniture is beautiful. They had a turn-down service every night where they put the mosquito netting and sprayed for mosquitoes. It was effective. I did not see a single mosquito. The air conditioning, fan and hot water worked very well. For our last night, our flight was very early, the staff packed us a breakfast - very thoughtful. The staff was honest - we checked in our passports and cash, and all was returned. Also, my friend misplaced her wallet. It was turned in to the main office and returned. The breakfast was standard, with fresh fruit, eggs and pastries/bread, juice, tea. We did not eat at the restaurant. It appeared to be pizza and burgers and we were looking to eat more Zanzabari food.

"lovely small hotel with excellent restaurant + bar"
We checked in here for one night before heading back to europe. The owners and staff were extremely helpful and friendly, booking us a cheap taxi to the airport very early the next morning and even providing a simple breakfast for 5 in the morning on a specially laid table outside our room. The restaurant is excellent and situated in a nice roof terrace. The bar is small but comfortable, friendly and reasonably priced - also on a roof terrace. The place also has gorgeous cats.

"Beautifully furnished hotel in the old town"
The hotel has wonderful antique furniture from a bygone age and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and well maintained. The only slightly negative point was the intermittent wi-fi. The overall experience was a very enjoyable stay.

"Don't look anywhere else - this is it"
Super hotel, ultra clean, staff stunningly inviting and accommodating, location perfect to visit the old part of Stone Town, nice infinity pool, on the beach - which gets crowded late afternoon. Can ask for a better location with exceptional service. Amongst the best I have stayed - recent as it just open in 2015 with modern facility. Perfect location to watch the sunset and fisherman sailor returning to the harbour at the end of their day.
