Very affordable rates. Daily morning breakfast buffet was exceptional. Facilities were excellent and location made access to city center easy. Patricia at reception helped solve several issues I had to navigate on my first time visit to Tanzania. I will definitely return to this gem.

Video Recording of the breakfast table with the cockroaches in the bread bin, offered by a General Manager Mr. Chris a FREE lunch at another branch of Best Western. I refused and ask him to send me to the same Best Western he offered me for free lunch. After consulting with the owner because both hotel are under same owner. After consulting with the Owner, He refused me to upgrade to the other BW because there was a $30 difference in a price and it I paid $90 for this hotel and other BW is for $120. What a Shame! I refused his offer for FREE lunch and left to City Center Holiday Inn and regret my decision to stayed at BW Peninsula. Hope this will helpful to make your decision to stay at BW Peninsula. I have video proof. Please contact if you like to see it.

Dear Mr Mirza, I am very sorry for your experience at our restaurant. I cannot imagine what it must have been like to have discovered the small german cockroach crawling on the buffet. I apologize profusely. We have never had that happened before, and we always pass our health inspections with flying colors and furthermore, we are well aligned with our weekly fumigation and pest control program as per the record our Manager Chris showed you.. After your experience, I had personally revisited the whole process and had requested our exterminator to come in right away. I want to assure you we are doing everything to fix the problem you experienced and making sure it does not recur. I know that you may never want to revisit our restaurant again, but I do hope you will reconsider. If you do, please do let us know and we shall be very pleased to welcome you for an unforgettable dinner experience at our Peninsula Restaurant. You can also ask me personally if you have any further problems. We appreciate your patronage and feel so embarrassed by the incident that occurred at our restaurant. I hope that you will accept my sincerest apology. We have taken every action possible to ensure that a cockroach will not find its way onto our service area. I am just sorry that you had to experience it on your visit to our restaurant. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you. Sincerely, Jean-Marc Ah Foo
