Mbweni Ruins Hotel is a small hotel south of Stone Town, next to the ruins of the old Mbweni mission, and managed by Protea Hotels. This area was once the beach retreat of a wealthy Omani family, part of which was bought in 1871 by the Universities' Mission to Central Africa to create an Anglican mission and a village for freed slaves. Several of the buildings are still standing today and there are fascinating relics all around.

Our view of Mbweni Ruins Hotel

Although it's in a good location, and has excellent staff who try hard, the standard rooms at Mbweni Ruins Hotel are a little too small, dark and characterless to recommend wholeheartedly. We like the restaurant and beach area, and it's handy to be so close to the airport, and to be able to get in and out of Stone Town with relative ease, so we hope the major renovations and refitting planned for 2017 will come to fruition.
