We used this hotel at the beginning and the end of a 7 day Mt Kilimanjaro ascent via the Machame route ie. two nights. The hotel is well outside of Arusha and so not really suitable if you want to see the city sights or go out at night. However for R&R it is excellent with large well tended grounds with mature trees and a stream and it is set well away from the main road so no noise and you feel you are miles from anywhere. There is a nice airy dining area and bar, with very reasonable prices. Dinner is a fixed course menu but lighter menu options are available for lunch or anytime. The hotel is privately owned and service and attention reflects this. Staff are very friendy and helpful, but can be a bit shy. Accommodation is in separate thatched bungalows and has separate patio areas for relaxing and privacy. Both nights, we had tastefully furnished rooms with all usual facilities incl. plenty of hot water and firm comfortable beds and mosquito nets. Unable to think of anything that needed improving and reasonable room rate.
