Having stayed at other Best Westerns in the US, I wasnt expecting much. This hotel is great. From the moment you arrive you are warmly greeted. The ocean view is great, food is great, and staff are very accomodating. Awesome hotel!

This hotel is first class with very helpful staff - the rooms are very comfortable and very clean. I have had several meals in Ngalawa Seafront Restaurant and in the main hotel and the food is of the highest standard and it is ideally located close to the Slipway. It is a must visit!!

I came here with my family and had a lovely one night stay. The hotel is in a very quiet area which can be appreciated after a long hot day stuck in Dar Es Salaam traffic. I am South African so I am well accustomed to heat, but Tanzania is even hotter so air-con in the bedrooms is definitely a...

This hotel is in a peaceful and tranquil part of town. The property boasts one of the most amazing sunsets on the mainland. The room and service is also impeccable and the staff are very courteous. The price point is a little high but worth the stay. Try and get a room in the new wing.

The staff were great: very friendly and always willing to help. My room was very comfortable and spacious and the aircon was a blessing. I would definitely stay here again. Next time I would request a room with a sea view. However, I am sure these are a lot hotter as they get much more sun.
