This is a small and nice Guesthouse close to the harbour from Stonetown. The center of the town is only a walk from 10 minutes away. The breakfast on the rooftop is very nice. The staff is very friendly and helpfull.

Lovely little place with beautifull rooms and friendly staff. Absolutely recommand this place. We went back there at the end of our trip. Would recommend the rooms of About 70 dollars as they are a lot nicer than the 50 dollar onzes.

Warere Town house is at the top end of Stone town. It is 3 minutes walk from the ferry terminal. Maybe the closest of all accommodation to the ferry. Stone town (old part) is small and easily walkable north to south in... More
