Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review

The staff were very helpful. The location is not especially good as there did not appear to be anything locally to walk to in the day time, with the location better suited for business people. The room was very average, I would imagine it was more then suitable for a business person.

With it being located so close to the airport I can well understand why it is a reaonsable option for a last night stay before returning home the next day. Mind you with so little to see or do locally the last day can drag some what, especially as we got there at midday. The lunch and dinner menu in the restaurant did not seem expecially varied with the Lunch we had being of average quality. The morning buffet was very good in terms of variety.

I am going to give it an "Average", although for Tanzania it may be worth of a "Good" but I do not have the knowledge of other hotels to make a fair comparison for the price.

Southern Sun (formerly the Holiday Inn) review

We only had an overnight stop, arriving in the evening and leaving early the next morning. We were tired from the flights and just needed to crash out.

The room was comfortable and we ate in the restaurant which was very good.

Transit at the Southern Sun

This was an ideal one night stop before the flight home. Great to have the choice of a bath or shower.

The evening meal was average but the breakfast (served from 0400), had a good choice to suit all tastes and appetites at that time in the morning.

Excellent both for position and comfort.All the 'trappings' of a 5 star hotel at a 4 star cost.
