Holiday Inn review

I only had a brief time here, but the welcome was friendly, the check in was simple and the room and bathroom were both very pleasant and well appointed.

Holiday Inn review

As we were there only one night it suited our requirements.

Tanzania does not make entry and exit easy and what an awful airport . i thought it might have improved since we were last there but it hasn't.

Holiday Inn review

We only used the Holiday Inn (now the Southern Sun) for an overnight as we arrived at 2359 and departed the following morning at 0700. However the staff were really hepful even when my companion's suitcase lock wouldn't budge and at 0200 they were still able to produce a 'technician' to break the lock. The breakfast was very good with a lot of variety.

Holiday Inn review

At the time of our visit the hotel was full of George Bush's humourless service personnel so probably not very fair to pass comment.

It had all the right things for a Holiday Inn and the doormen had very colourful uniforms.

It is handily placed next door to the offices of Kearsley Travel so you should not have any worries finding your airport transfer driver. The hotel is a short walk to the shore which is quite pleasant and good for a final view of dimorphic egrets and various gulls and terns.

Holiday Inn review

The Holiday Inn was a convenient stop over for us. The rooms were fine, though we did have to change rooms the second time we were there as the A/C was not working. The service was rather slow and the food very average. There was very little atmosphere and you could have been anywhere in the world!

However, the pool was a bonus for the kids and the location at the back of the botanical gardens a plus.
