I stayed 2 nights - 15th & 16th May 2015. This is an average hotel. Breakfast was very basic. Rooms are quite large.

They told me the lodge had the best steak in the area and after trying it, I don't doubt it. Very tender and delicious.

Lovely lodge with a beautiful view of Mt Meru and lovely air to breath with flowers and garden everywhere. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Also very clean. Staff is very friendly. The price is very reasonable too. Enjoyed my stay.

We had two dinners here during a recent stay and enjoyed both meals. The food was fresh and the menus included a range of slightly retro continental meals. The service was helpful without being intrusive and there is a small outdoor area with views to the mountain. Nice casual option for those seeking freshly prepared continental fare.

Friendly and helpful staff, great accommodations and affordable! While checking in, the young man at the front desk answered all of my questions and was quite helpful. Room was clean, comfortable and modern looking. Good location and reasonably priced.

On our return 4 of us decide to have the steak again, this time with spices, with one member opting for lamb. We were not disappointed. The staff are helpful and friendly. We had the... More

The prawn cocktails were good portions with enough prawns and great cocktail sauce. We... More
