The staff was very friendly and helpful. We also booked a Kilimanjaro Trek through the lodge which turned out great. We did a great acclimatization hike through the local villages to a wonderful remote waterfall.
The road to the lodge is rough and a bit long, so try to arrange your trip so you can go and stay to unwind, don't expect to go back and forth to town.
