I used tripadvisor a lot when planning my vacation but the Garden Lodge hadn't a review. I'd like to correct this.
I heard about this hotel from other backpackers on the ferry and feel like I discovered a great place. The location is great as it's just at the top of Kenyatta Rd one of the main streets so anyplace you need to get to in Stonetown is in walking distance and I didnt ever get lost on the way home. It was quiet as not in the rabbit warren streets surrounded by neighbours. The room was really good value, 30$ with bathroom and aircon. The staff were friendly and helpful but not pushy. One young guy Mr Oxygen (everyone needs oxygen right?!) works on reception and organised a taxi out of town and advised on best deals for diving and gave us the lowdown on where to go and what to do. All in all cheap and cheerful, I don't think you can find a better place at this budget.
