I traveled this October to Lushoto and arrived at this 3 star lodge. Pros; Friendly staff, spacious rooms/ not all, good atmosphere around the lodge, average food. Cons; Not wheelchair friendly, unclean bathrooms need to be maintained well, Breakfast could be improved, hotel amenities could be provided as stated. If you’re looking for a place far from the hustle bustle in town this is it. But don’t have high expectations.

We went for an holiday at lushoto and decided to stay at the lodge. Wow, it's much more of an experience to it. It was worth it. We loved everything from customer services so responsive, the rooms were clean with towels, the heater, the bedroom with blankets, the food was delicious and well prepared, the great view so green area, the beautiful garden, the manager & the staffs were so helpful. I felt so cold cause of the weather and the manager helped me with his sweater cause I didn't have one, what a kindness! We recommend this accommodation to anyone who visits lushoto.

This was a nice stay. Lovely location, spacious room, hot water and clean sheets. Staff were absolutely amazing and very helpful. Also super flexible in providing me breakfast to go. They were let down by holes in the mosquito net and the slow, slow kitchen.

Firstly.. Did not get as far as rooms bed arrangments as promised, hence all the planning of sleeping arrangments were distorted. Secondly. Ordered Lunch at 11.30Am, got our food at 3.40pm.. this was a few sandwiches, and a few fried chickens. Third. The rooma were filthy and stormed with mosquitos & insects. Fourth. After complaining to the manager, and requested for at least a mosquito net.. he simply said. We dont have any nets.. maybe you give me the money. And i buy a mosquito net for you.. i paid on spot, however after a lot of noise that was compensated on the bill. Even after paying for a net.. it took 3 hours to go get a net, while the shops are a 10 min drive.. meanwhile a 6 month baby slept in our car. Fifth. The manager & the managment is absoloutely useless.. very unprofessional staff. Water running from the taps is Brown! Heaters for hot water showers.. The list continues however overall a very unpleasant experience at lushoto executive.

The lodge is just amazing, with great views and good rooms for a lodge on a hill station. The rate of the rooms as per the category is very well distinguished. I suggest taking the tents as everything was fine. We had taken 10+ rooms out of which the tents were the best others had minor problems in all. The receptionist Consolata had communicated with us very well. We had a terrible experience with the restaurant, well I read the reviews on the food delays but thought to give it a try on our first day. They insisted on us to place the order by like 5-6 hours earlier and the menu looked tasty. At dinner time the food was not ready at, they just started chopping. We got served at 2300hrs with a dish we suggested them to make as the buffet was not ready at all. They need to work on the kitchen staff asap. The junior staffs are friendly and hardworking. Recommended for stay only, for food better take alternatives around.

How wide anyone set up such an amazing property, in one of a kind location and fail to deliver even the simplest of customer's expectations? I don't even know where to start. The toilets were leaking The food... Not good and I was served with raw bread (of all the things... Raw bread???) Dinner took forever to get served The was no standby generator and we stayed in the dark for hours and there seemed to be no one responsible enough to sort out the mess. Guests (including myself) ended up having dinner using our phones for light. Imagine that. Management couldn't even give us candles. Other than the view this hotel has nothing to offer Terribly disappointed

My team and I visited the lodge from Dar for a team building event and had an amazing time. The conference facilities catered for our needs and food served was hearty and delicious too. From the housekeeping staff to the waiters, we were met with pleasant attitudes which only added to our positive experience. As you can imagine waiting on a team of 20 can be tasking. Those of us that stayed in the tented luxury rooms had to deal with cooler temperatures at night but were also given extra blankets to take cover from the chilled nights. They also have a f'farm-house' that's been there from colonial days that offers cozy deluxe rooms!!! This was a key highlight for me given that I enjoy history. The management organized tour drives during our weekend stay and packed lunch boxes- a good consideration for the places we visited only provided for picnic-like eating. Lushoto offers amazing scenery and calm and a stay at this hotel in a valley only makes for an even more amazing visit to the Usambara mountains.

Stayed at this gem, hidden in a valley up in the Usambara mountains over Christmas of 2016. Nothing says 'relaxing' like eating freshly picked fruits for breakfast with the lush Lushoto fauna in site. There's plenty to do here. We went hiking on the second day of our stay to a place called Irente and it was a site to behold. Would definitely recommend it to anyone looking to disconnect for a few days and truly enjoy Lushoto.

I took my family over for a break and it something to write home about. It felt like I knew the management as they treated us like family. The kids loved the bon fire, it went very well with the weather. The barbecue set up was out this world. I must admit it's not a place I'd recommend for weight loss as my appetite went through the roof!!! The barbecue was delicious. I wouldn't do Lushoto alone though it's more of a family or couples place. But I'm surely gonna do this at least once a year for my peace of mind.
