Stack Attack
Everything was ok, reception very helpful, was not please with breakfast. Very misleading. The hostess asked what would I'd like to eat, I replied the stack attack which advertised a few stacks of Pancakes with Bacon, I was welcomed with 4 crepes and not even a full piece of bacon, I asked the hostess what is this, she replied what I ordered, I then asked if I could have more bacon, she replied you want more bacon? So I was rather frustrated with breakfast.

HOTEL GREAT SHUTTLE WAS NOT
THE HOTAL WAS BEAUTIFUL, THE FRONT DESK STAFF WAS WONDERFUL, BUT THE HOTEL SHUTTLE SERVICE LET ME DOWN. ON MY ARRIVAL THE SHUTTLE DRIVER WENT TO THE WRONG AIRPORT. ON MY DEPARTURE HE DIDN'T SHOW UP AND I ALMOST MISSED MY FLIGHT HOME. I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED THAT THE FRONT DESK MADE ME WAIT A HALF HOUR BEFORE GETTING ME A CAB TO THE AIRPORT.

Slipway visit
The locality should be prime but appears run down with empty shops around and dirty waterfront area. Hotel was fine except if you want quietness need to go higher than the first floor as the restaurants outside do create noise with children running around and shouting. The terrace restaurant provide good food which was lovely to see.

Very convenient and nice!
Slipway is a really nice location, central to many things, and has plenty options on offer. So you dont feel stuck in a hotel but can enjoy different atmospheres and places. Hotel room is nice, quiet even if there are restaurants below it (I had the sea view, a must!)

A nice retreat out of the centre of Dar
This was not my first visit to Hotel Slipway, it's a great place to stay away from the crowded busy-ness of Dar, located on the peninsula. It's worth it to get a sea view room, although the other rooms are pleasant. The breakfast buffet is exceptional and the staff very helpful. There is a spa, shops with local crafts, a Thai-Japanese restaurant, and other nice shops in the shopping centre part of the complex. It's a popular evening spot for residents as well, giving a nice local feeling

Great option in Dar!
The Slipway Hotel is in a great location right on the water. I love the Terrace and its excellent breakfast. It also has very friendly staff. The hotel definitely needs updating but I think that is more or less priced in. I’ve stayed at hotel next door but highly prefer Slipway.
