Looking over the indian ocean with quite an interesting architecture and history throughout stone town, I definitely fell for this place. The hotel staff especially the doorman/greeter was especially helpful and tended to everything big and small! I will definitely return! Food was delicious too!

The hotel is interesting, built into two historic buildings, the telecommunications building and a doctor's dispensary, Our room had a great sunset view over the Indian Ocean. But the service was what made this place. People were very accommodating, arranging tours, boat charters and catering to my special interests. The hotel has a private beach north of Stonetown. The day we went we were the only people there. It has rained but we came to the beach to get wet, right. Well, it didn't rain and we had a wonderful day. The hotel is located in Stonetown, walking distance from the interesting sights and markets. We only stayed three days but I wish it were longer.
Very nice hotel
