Overnight stopover

For this one section I am replying on behalf of my husband who is away at the moment. I know he found the Slipway excellent, with a particularly good breakfast

Great hotel to relax in after a flight!

Comfortable hotel to relax and acclimatise to Africa after overnight flight from London. A great pool with views onto the sea - the kids loved it!

Also a good beach side restaurant next to the hotel to have an evening meal at.

The Slipway, nice restaurant by the Ocean !

Not that long drive from the Airport , probably we were lucky with traffic .

Room very simple but clean and spacious. The only downside was the rather small bed .
The location is excellent , inside a complex with plenty stores to do some late minute shopping and nice restaurants overlooking the Indian Ocean. We had a very good dinner right at the water with a great sunset !!

Again very simple but good for a night stop if you arrive late or have to catch an early flight.

The Slipway review

Room was fine - to a good standard one might have expected from a 'western' hotel. The service could only be described as 'occasional' at the best with requests for selected room items not met promptly e.g kettle not working and replaced after multiple requests. Breakfasts were miniscule and poor quality with service by uninterested staff. Would not stay there again.

Slipway 'resort' itself rather tired with only saving grace the Waterfront restaurant with good service and food. Things at the hotel improved with the discovery of an Italian manageress who got things moving, Local staff basically need a well aimed rocket! Little of interest at Slipway other than a bed for the night!

Comfortable

A good location , but not ideal for a quick overnight stop at the airport, as it was right across town in the rush-hour. 1.5 hours in a non airconditioned minibus, and NOT in the private car as per the booking. Also it took about half an hour to locate the driver at the airport on arrival, as he was not in the obvious place, and was NOT carrying a name board..... the same bus in the morning, with the driver turning up late.... very poor transfer
