This place is a must stay!! My family and I (a group of 8) stayed in 3 hotels/lodges and this was the best hotel on safari - the service and grounds make this place the first place I would recommend. The grounds are beautiful! Everything is so well maintained and perfect landscaping. The view isn't directly of the crater, but there is only one lodge that is and i'm sure that it cannot be nicer then this one. The view is absolutely beautiful though of the lush mountaintops surrounding the top of the crater. Its located minutes outside the park gates, so when your done with your safari you are not too far (although everything takes a long time in Africa), and then they are waiting for you with warm wash cloths and fresh juices. Each cottage is over the top. They are equipped with fireplaces, giant bathrooms with warm showers, a balcony with a great view no matter where you are, living room area with desk and another bed if needed. The service is what made this lodge the most memorable experience. The manager, Stanley, amongst every other employee is very welcoming and eager to help you in any way possible. The manager introduced himself to every guest at the hotel and made it his personal duty to make sure you were comfortable and that you felt welcome. There are people at every corner to make sure you are taken care of and they urge you to take advantage of the amenities they provide like room service, wifi, hot water bottles in your bed, a pillow menu (with everything from lavender pillows to down pillows), all inclusive food and alcohol - all of which are free of charge. There are amenities more i'm failing to mention, but everywhere they can provide you something or comfort you in any way possible they are there. Additional massage service and laundry are available at an affordable rate compared to local areas. The food is great as well and they encourage you to order every course which change every day. The lunch boxes they send you with on your safari days were by far the best that we had compared to the 3 other hotels that provided our lunches. There are so many details you can't describe, but not one detail they fail to miss. Absolute great time!
