Myself and my wife spent 2 nights here, one before and one after our Kilimanjaro trek. We discussed it and neither of us could think of anything that was wrong with the place at all, it was booked for us via our agents, should you find yourselves in the same position then congratulations.
The grounds are really relaxing, just the right size to be private without claustrophobic, a number of dik dik's and guinea fowl regularly walk around as well as numerous birdlife.
The actual main building manages to incorporate the reception / bar / dining room / log fire sitting area all in the same area under one giant roof giving a great atmosphere.
For anybody thinking of staying here after a Kilimanjaro excursion, there is a very very good bar with a large number of different beers to work your way through after a long trek!
The staff inparticular are also very very friendly, welcoming and most of all competant. Whilst the roms are not luxorious they are clean and have everything you need.
The lodge is arpound 25 minutes from Arusha but this shouldn't realy cause any problems as if your staying here following a Safari or Kili trak (as seems to be the norm) you won't be wanting to venture out at all once you land.
I can't recommend this hotel enough and would stay here again without doubt if I was in the Arusha area
