The hotel and grounds are not bad. Location is not great. It's some distance away from Arusha town and hotel provide free transfer to it only ONCE a day, around 10am. We took a taxi from Arusha to hotel for 10000tsh which is around 7$.
Some staff at the reception are not very nice. They stay polite but trying to cheat to get extra money from you for phone calls, etc. One evening they told us taxi would coast 20$ to town (we didn't take it), next morning it was 10$ (she probably forgot).
The bills at the bar HAD to be checked (trying here as well).
The breakfast is everage, ok.
Would I stay again? No.
