Back at Mkonge hotel after some years was a great disappointment. Last time we enjoyed our stay immensely. This time there was a lot to be wanted. The room had a strong unpleasant smell like old socks. The ac barely cooled the room to a comfortable temperature. Towels and bedsheets were worn and in one bed in our twin room...

We went here for an evening meal. And to be honest, it was the worst indian meal we have ever had and would never want to eat here again. There was no taste in any of the dishes we had ordered and not value for money at all. The mosquitoes were terrible.

The setting of the Mkonge is beautiful. However from the moment of arrival the service was unfriendly (apart from the room maid who was most friendly and accommodating). The rooms are adequate but the bathrooms dated.

The location is lovely and so is the view over Tanga bay. However, that’s where the good news stops. Other than the lady who cleaned our room the staff were very unfriendly, particularly the two ladies at reception were downright rude. The rooms are outdated and the bathrooms are in dire need to renovation. The fruit at breakfast was very...

Breakfast was not he greatest, but sufficient, none of us walked away hungry. Strangely we only had one meal at the hotel, but it was a nice one, fish...

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...
