We chose this hotel due to its close proximity to Mount Kilimanjaro which we intended to climb. We had a deadline to leave the hotel at 7.30 am in readiness to the mountain climb. However we were delayed due to problems with water in the shower which turned scalding hot randomly whilst in use. The same problem of water temperature... More

Stayed here for 1 night prior and 2 nights post Kilimanjaro trek with our group. The hotel is in a good location away from the hustle/bustle of Moshi & Arusha. The hotel staff are friendly, however the hotel has seen better days. The rooms & facilities (pool, ablutions, dining, bar) are v dated and tired. We had the same room... More

When you walk in, your greeted by a fresh glass of hibiscus juice and a cool towel. It's a nice welcome and sets the standard for the hotel. The rooms are clean, have safes in the rooms and hair dryers and TVs. It has a pool and a nice bar area. The breakfast is plentiful and tasty with eggs/pancake cooked... More

Very nice and restful base for both before and after a climb on Kilimanjaro. Clean, tidy with good food and friendly staff. Beautiful gardens well tended too, to wander or just sit by the pool. Would stay here again.

This Hotel is very nice for all people. At same, it is very good starting point for Mount Kilimanjaro climbers who go for Machame route. Weather is always cool, sometimes very cold especially from October to December. The staff are friendly and highly qualified. As it is VN located under the showers of Mount Kilimanjaro, even those who are not... More

Myself and 3 friends stayed here for one night in February. We are all experienced travellers and have stayed in hotels all over the world. But this was a first. We've never been held prisoner by one. We booked via Expedia. Arrived and everything seemed to work, albeit to an entirely average level. The rooms were fine if you like... More

I stayed here with 3 colleagues on 18 February 2015. After a pleasant stay (comfortable room, average food, poor wifi) i went to check out the next day. Unfortunately Expedia had not sent the hotel confirmation of payment. The manager on duty Jimmy Jackal (AKA Jimmy the Jackal) then proceeded to keep us prisoner in the hotel for 4 hours,... More

This lovely hotel is around 30 minutes from the Machame Gate where one of the Kilimanjaro routes start. The hotel has beautiful gardens and is situated in banana and coffee plantations. The rooms are lovely and clean and comes with a mini-bar, TV, coffee station and fans - unfortunately no air-conditioning. There are also no mosquito nets, but they do... More

I stayed here for one night during a work site visit. The grounds are beautiful and quiet. The place is well-kept and the rooms are clean. I had a room on the third floor and the view was nice. Wifi does not make it to all rooms, but you get it at the bar and lobby area. Breakfast is plentiful... More
