The Slipway review

This was a good choice for a stopover to recover from the travelling from LHR.

Very warm welcome from the staff and a relaxed dinner at the Terrace restaurant

Lovely setting by the sea

This was a lovely relaxing place to stay after the long flight.

The staff were helpful and the restaurants nearby meant that we didn't have to go far to get our evening meal.

The Slipway at last !

The location of The Slipway, being on the coastal edge of Dar. city, is ideal if you want to be away from the hustle of the CBD. However if you've had long hours of flying to eventually get to Dar, then the two hours of traffic congestion and pot-holed roads to travel from airport to hotel should be considered before staying here.

The beachside restaurants, pool and breakfast facilities are all very well set up, but only overnighting in economy class seating would make the bedding (mattress) seem inviting.

Good for a Pitstop

Decent value hotel for 1 night stay, rooms are clean and the restaurants are really nice just outside.

Bathrooms are a little dated so not great for showers but for 1 night cheap and cheerful its a good choice!

Old world charm on the waterfront

Lovely location overlooking the sea with good shops and restaurants attached but well over an hour from the airport in the busy traffic- just 20 minutes after midnight!

We enjoyed dinner overlooking the sea and found the staff very friendly. Rooms are comfortable rather than luxurious but overall there is old world charm and would recommend for a relaxing day.

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.
