We spent a night here in December 2007. There must be changes as we found the lodge quite well kept and the staff responsive. We had Christmas dinner here and the food was good and fresh. We met the owners son, who is managing the place and he was on site and available to address questions and make us feel at home. The room was quite large, overlooking MT. Kili during sunset, very clean with a large bathroom with lots of hot water.
Overall the place was nice, food and service good. Would recommend. As I noted, the management is on site so there must be changes from previous reviews.
PS it also serves a good cause so it gave me some personal satisfaction that some of the profits are going to help the community.
