          I would like to know the earliest and latest shuttle times into Stone Town, and how often it runs. Same as shuttle to and from the airport.

          We used the shuttle - I think it runs in and out 3 times a day, at 9:00, 12:00 and 3:00 (ish). The hotel is only 15 minutes from Stonetown, so you can easily grab a taxi in town to go back to the hotel whenever you want.

          Hi, My friend and I are considering staying here but she is worried about accessibility to Stone Town. Can you tell us if the hotel is quite isolated, and how easy it is either to walk or to get transport in to Stone Town? Many thanks

          The Hotel is extremely accessable, in fact they have complimentary taxis twice a day to Stone Town.
