Three nights were spent at this hotel during a business visit. The hotel is set in pleasant grounds with sea views and outside dining facilities. The staff are very pleasant and welcoming. The rooms are however very dated and the bathrooms in need of complete refurbishment. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable and a fridge was provided. Hot...

I stayed here for a couple of nights during a business trip. The staff were generally helpful. My room was clean and comfortable but the bathroom was in need of some refurbishment. I paid to use the WiFi in my room but couldn't get any connection. Eventually discovered that you can get free internet in the main part of the...

Rooms need lot of renovation, good part is that Indian food available. Right next to river front. Live music in the evening. Poor net connectivity. Poor breakfast availability. Needs to be more cleaner.

This could be such a wonderful hotel, but it is evident that the proprietor does not really care about his guests. Rooms are shoddy but at least clean. The breakfast is a disappointment and the shower water was cold Great Potential but badly managed. The only highlight was the beautiful garden overlooking the bay.

My husband, who was leaving for some work, went to get something from our room after breakfast . He saw a dodgy looking house keeping guy, standing near our room. My husband clearly instructed him NOT to enter our room. After a while, my two kids and I decided to return to the ROOM. We got in and I went...

The hotel's location is fantastic with breath taking views and the cool sea breeze, The rooms and specially the bathrooms are in pathetic condition with water unable to clear the bath tray and form a dirty pool. The buffet breakfast was very poor, with nothing special to take note of. All in all very POOR VALUE FOR MONEY.

We didn't stay at the hotel but used it as a base whilst we were visiting Tanga due to the wifi, which is very good by Tanzanian standards. Bar area is a relatively good size and prices are reasonable, but the food is fairly average. There are lots of staff but none of them seem to do all that much,...

On 11th Dec 2015, my freinds and I checked in for 2 nights. The view from the garden is very soothing and worth every minute we spent. The breakfast serving team are not in uniform hence it was difficult to distinguish guests from workers. Internet is free at the garden but you have to pay while in the room. The...

This is an annual visit for our group, a great base from which to visit our schools around the town. Staff are efficient and helpful (although we were a little put off by the man on reception on arrival who appeared not to want to help with our mosquito nets despite already emailing and receiving positive responses prior to arrival.)...

Friends, any of you happen to visit Tanzania, do visit Tanga, a small sleepy town. One of the safest location with sober locals. Mkonge is serving the Indian tourist in such a way, will be difficult to expect sitting at home,
