We stayed at this lodge as part of Tanzania safari, and loved it. We were lucky to get one of the newly renovated rooms - new carpet, new curtains, completely renovated bathroom with enormous shower, new fixtures and fittings, it was lovely. I think most of the renovations are complete now at this lodge, and looking at the pictures of the previous rooms, it has made a huge difference. The view from our room (and all common areas of the lodge) was an uninterrupted view down into the crater, from the glassed in balcony with rocking chairs.
Food was great (although no toast at breakfast, only bread), and wine list was extensive, and very reasonable. All the staff were very friendly (if a little pushy sometimes on 'encouraging' us to speak swahili), and the checkin and checkout staff were lovely and very efficient. Bar drinks and water are very reasonably priced.
The picnic lunch provided for the all-day game drives wasn't great - I would stock up on food from the breakfast buffet (they seem quite used to this, as there is a note on the yoghurts asking for those who want to take them out on safari to please take the the plastic spoons) or ask for a vegetarian lunch, as the food sits in the jeep all day in the heat.
