Pleasant stay at Golden Tulip
A very pleasant hotel for a solo stay, which is located outside the hussle and bussle of Stone Town. Staff were very friendly and always welcoming. The room was unexpectedly large, with a great bed and sofa area. Although there is only one restaurant (also used for breakfast), all the food was excellent as was breakfast. Would definitely stay there again.

Relaxing stay
We had a lovely stay at the hotel, the only let down was the variety at breakfast. Not much of a choice. Rooms were very clean.
