This review is delayed by a good 08 months so my apologies for the same.
I have visited this hotel in December 2013 for my honeymoon and I must say that my wife and I were not left disappointed. Everything was flawless from the initial booking experience till the last day of our stay there. Since I am from India and booked directly with the hotel, I must appreciate Ms. Veronica Phiri from the Reservations Team who was always kind enough to extend all courtesies and assist in every possible way to make the entire booking process smooth. She was even happy to assist us with our overnight stay and tour at Mikumi Wildlife Park which was an unforgettable and fantastic experience!
We stayed in the Standard Room at Best Western and I must say that the first thing to really take our fancy was the wonderful view of the bay. It was very scenic especially in the day light. The hotel offers free Wi-Fi with good connectivity. We always enjoyed our breakfast at the Marjani Cafe which had a decent breakfast layout. But the best meals and ambiance that we really used to look forward to were our dinners at the Ngalawa Restaurant which is open air and located at the boundary of the bay. The view is amazing while dining here.
The hotel over all is very nice and clean and reasonably priced in terms of accommodation and dining. Staff is very friendly and always eager to help. I would definitely stay here again for sure!
