Only fifty minutes away from Ngorongoro Crater, this top-notch hotel is probably one of the best in the world. In the midst of a coffee plantation, everything seems to flow magically, absent of extravagances or useless display but with the precision and discretion of real luxury. A flawless experience. Special thanks to Roddy and Peter, who made our stay perfect.... More

The food, staff, lodging and services are outstanding. The grounds are beautiful and annexed to a coffee plantation so the view is magnificent. The grounds are secured with electric wiring (to protect the 800+ hectares of coffee plants from being trampled by the animals) so you can enjoy the grounds day or night. A real treat!! Lots of places to... More

This was part of the Sky Safari package offered by Elewana. (see other relevant reviews). No doubt this is a fantastic hotel with superb facilities that are at odds with the surrounding poverty. It is in an old coffee plantation which is surrounded by an electric fence to keep the animals out. I mention this because to me, this epitomises... More

We travelled in Dec. 2014. This place a paradise on earth and the only negative thing is that we stayed for only 1 night. Rooms, lodge`s set up, restaurants, food and service are just perfect and makes you want to stay longer. It`s totally relaxing and to our surprise is also romantic, although we were with our kids so it... More

I cannot rate this hotel highly enough! Roddy and Camilla are excellent host's who work ceaselessly to take care of their guests. My room was spacious and beautifully furnished. I stayed in room # 18 this gave me a view west over the coffee plantation and enabled me to watch the sunset. The hotel grounds are well kept, the staff... More

The Manor at Ngorongoro is out of this world! Pure luxury. The welcome, service and quality of everything from the bed linen to the smiles was exceptionally good. Camilla and Roddy are to be commended on presenting top class service to customers. All of the staff were wonderful and we assume they have a VERY good training programme in place.... More

After leaving the road linking the Ngorongoro and Arusha, you'll follow a steep trail for about 20mn, very well indicated and you end up in the middle of an Arabica plantation, impressive place with all the European confort and all activities you may require, pool, spa, horse back riding, cycling, ...
