It's a one hour transfer from the main Dar to Arusha highway, but it's climbing through lovely mountainous scenery, The location of the lodge is beautiful, set in its own grounds with the chalets scattered up a slope from the main hotel. The rooms are basic and comfortable, The inside of the hotel has a lounge with a log fire (it can get cool in the evenings) but we preferred huddling next to the huge chimnea in the garden next to the bar and under the stars. Breakfast was fairly basic with eggs cooked to you liking. Dinner was a buffet with several tasty hot options to choose from and, once we had established that chicken was not appropriate for a vegetarian (after the first night), they served up some good veggie options for the other two nights we were there,

All in all, a very pleasant stay though nothing out of the ordinary - though we can't comment on the value because the cost to us was part of a total Tanzania package.

The environment is beautiful, the lodge nice and staff friendly. However, the food was not really special. Breakfast quite basic and we did not get a feeling that the staff really made efforts to pleasantly surprise their customers although prices are rather high. We needed to ask ourselves for juice and cheece for breakfast instead it being offered by the staff.

We've spend a long weekend in Mullers Mountain Lodge. Our first impression was very positive. The lodge is beautiful and situated on a perfect spot in the Usambara Mountains. But allready after one night we considered changing to another lodge. Allthough there is a lot of staff, they seem mostly busy entertaining themselves, playing games, hanging around the bar, drinking and laughing. Dinner is nothing special and if you're not so lucky you get old, dry bread for breakfast with a bit of jam and an eg. The staff obviously lacks supervision. On our last day and night we were the only guests. As desert they presented us the cake that had been on a plate outside all day. Also they turned off the water heater, they obviously forgot we were still there... The bill was incorrect, we had a strong impression the staff tried to let us pay for the beers and wines they had been drinking themselves during the past few days...

We booked to stay for 2 nights but after surviving a long and dusty bus ride to get there we instantly felt relaxed by the beautiful scenery and welcoming staff and decided to extend our stay by an extra night. The lodge is a colonial era farm house built from red brick and has lovely gardens with lots of flowers and fresh vegetables and herbs. There are rooms in main house as well as in small bungalows set in the grounds which are a short walk through the grounds and raised up on a hill with gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside. The inside of the room was simple but comfortable and luckily the bedding was nice and warm as the evenings can be really cold - warm clothes needed. The lodge is about 14km from Lushoto and a pick up can be arranged. This is free if you stay more than one night. Breakfast and lunch were so so but dinner was really good with lots of fresh vegetables from the garden. We paid $50 per night including breakfast and dinner is $10. There is nowhere else to eat nearby in any case. There is a fair selection of wine at reasonable prices, and suprisingly, credit cards were accepted. There are lots of nice walks to do nearby which the staff can advise on. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. I would definitely recommend this lodge though was less keen on the bus ride to get there.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Mullers Mountain Lodge. The owners have managed to create a very friendly and cozy, almost familar atmosphere. Staff are super-friendly and helpful, offering free coffee, tea and cake right upon arrival. It is pretty cold up there (1,800m) but there is a fireplace in the 'living room' where one can get warm and read a book. The lodge is situated in a beautiful compound with nice gardens, many different trees and birds (including some pretty fat ravens), area to sit and relax, etc. Unfortunately we did not have time to make any excursions but the lodge is renting out mountain bikes to those keen to explore the area.

The rooms are fairly basic but neatly decorated and absolutely OK for the price (we paid $45 for double) in the context of Tanzanian standards. I would however recommend to invest in lamps (instead of bare neon lightbulbs) and a slight improvement of the bathrooms. The walls are not very thick but I guess most people visiting the lodge will be of the calm type...

Please be aware of this: Similar to most other good accommodation in the area, the lodge is not in Lushoto proper but about 14km away. 14km doesn't sound much but most of it is a pretty bad dirt road, so it can take up to 45 minutes and your car will not be grateful for the ride.... if I had a normal saloon car I would think of twice before trying. However I saw that the road is currently (March 2011) being upgraded.
