Perfect in everyway. Delicious food, wonderful friendly staff, beautifully appointed lodges, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2 nights here, wished we had stayed for longer. Worth swapping something in the crater for this tranquil oasis, even if it is a bit further from the crater itself :)

My husband and I stayed at the Manor as part of a package with Elewana Safari (highly recommended), and it was truly an experience of a life time. From the very warm and personal greeting when we arrived, to a royal send-off with all staff waving good-bye at our departure, we couldn't have been more impressed. The cottages were comfort at it's best. Large windows looking out at the coffee plantation, huge beautiful bathroom with clawfoot soaking tub, private patios(2), cozy sitting area with coffee and tea, AND a hot water bottle in your bed at night! No detail is overlooked. The property managers make every guest feel as though they are the most special people there. I went on an amazing horseback ride, around the extensive property one morning, and I can't even begin to describe how beautiful the flowers and trees were with the mist rising above the neat rows of coffee. The food was wonderful and the staff will be remembered always. If you get a chance to include this property on safari, or if you just go to enjoy the property alone and include a drive into the Ngorongoro Crater (there is a landing strip nearby; you can get a plane from Arusha) you will not be disappointed. It's a bucket list kind of place.

We had the excellent fortune of staying at The Manor for the first two days of our safari vacation in Tanzania. We are seasoned travelers who have stayed in numerous hotels all over the world, but the experience we had at The Manor now stands at the pinnacle of our lodging experiences. From the instant we arrived, we were treated like cherished friends by the entire warm and welcoming staff. (Very special thanks go out to Justin, Benedict, and Rodgers!) Our suite was outstanding with every comfort and luxury attended to (the huge rain shower and hot water bottles in the bed at turn down are highlights), and the food, service, beautiful grounds, and meticulous attention to detail were all outstanding. We cannot sing the praises of The Manor and its fabulous Tanzanian staff enough and are sincerely hoping we will be able to return one day.

Having travelled all over the world this was the best experience ever! The Manor is the nearest place you will get to paradise!
We have never had such service in such beautiful surroundings as this - EVER! We were continually amazed by the 'surprises' Benedict came up with. We were constanly saying Wow! and the memory of the Manor will live with us forever! Thank-you soooooo much for giving us this incredible experience - Oh! and we saw some animals too!!!

The Manor is characterized by its beautiful architecture with several smaller semi detached houses settled in a perfect maintained garden around the main building. Great view and lovely manager couple that take really care about their guests. It is the place to stay for visiting the Ngorogoro Conservation area. Nice bar, good restaurant with excellent choice of food. For lovers of horseback riding, there is the possibility book a walk with the estates own stud. Very recommendable place to stay!
