    Location was excellent 5 minute walk from beach , bars and restaurants, food was good, swimming pool and facilities were good, bedroom was very comfortable bar and open air lounge were very good.

    Staff service was very poor, Breakfast served from 7 to 10 AM, but table cleared and not reset after 8.30 leaving nowhere to have breakfast. Waitresses seemed to be oblivious of your presence (even though they were being supervised by a manager) when it came to getting cutlery, plates for cleared tables and coffee etc. Room safe was locked on arrival it took 24 hours, after several request to reception, to get it opened. Overall we felt the staff could have done with some better training

    The rooftop pool is very nice. Nice to dip into the poom after wandering the streets of Stone Town. The location of the hotel is perfect right in the middle of Stone Town.

    The food during dinner in the restaurant was average. We mainly had Indian dishes and they were far too salty.
