like all other reviews about this hotel i can confirm that this is without doubt the hotel to stay and let them organise your trip up Killimanjaro if you are thinking about it.Our hotel guides up the mountain were amazing and witout whom i doubt we would have summited. Their knowledge of the mountain and of our abilities was priceless and they paced us from day one to summit, polee polee, slowly,slowly.we witnessed some extraordinary behaviour by some of the other guides from other companies who unsurprisingly did not summit. As for the hotel itself, it is basic but clean and the staff were friendly and attentive to all our needs. Our final night celeboratery drinks in the hotel bar with our guides will be something i will remember for the rest of my life. A TRUELY FANTASTIC PLACE.

The original farm buildings (now offices and reception) were built in 1907 as part of a coffee farm before being converted in 1932. Guest accommodation is provided in cottages around the gardens, and meals are prepared with vegetables from our own gardens and home baked bread. ... more less
