The pool was refreshing and clean. It also had a pool bar. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff were friendly enough and spoke decent English. The common area had wifi, though the signal was not incredibly strong. The views are great and the slightly higher altitude was refreshing. They also offer laundry services for a price (if you get there...

We stayed here in between visiting Tarangire National Park and Ngorongoro Crater. It was a quiet, private hilltop setting, among coffee plants. The rooms -- each named for a different bird -- were basic and clean. The main building featured a grand entry hall, restaurant and bar area. The staff was welcoming and friendly.

Nice rooms and the name Highview is really a good name for the hotel. Entertainment every night. African dance or Masai dancers. Good location before going to Serengeti, but if you want to visit Ngorongoro Crater as well, you should find something closer.
