When we arrived, they took us to a room with no sheets on the bed. So then they took us to a different room with a view that wasn't quite as good as the first room. There were no towels in that room. The place seemed empty and when I asked if we were the only two there, the manager said yes, but it turns out there were two other guests. We ate dinner there, and it was fine. Breakfast was standard fare with some really nice fruit. My friend had booked the room for $50 a night, bit when we went to check out, they said it was $80 a night. After much arguing and a call to the owner in Dar, they said we could pay $70. The manager who booked the room for $50 no longer works there. I hear managers change every few months. The worst part was the very loud barking dogs that barked all night long both nights we were there. I believe they belong to the lodge, so they should be able to keep them quiet. I was unable to sleep for the noise in what should be a very quiet and peaceful spot.
