Spent two nights here ... Room was large, great view, lotsa hot water (it was supposedly turned off at some time ... but that didn't effect me). The downside was the dated rooms and the hike up the hill to the lodge. A number of the people in our tour had major difficulty trekking from lodge to their room. However, I do realize that it's mighty difficult to build on the edge of a volcanic crater. If you have walking difficulty, you'd better ask for one of the rooms to the left of the lodge (looking out to the crater). Food was OK ... service was good ... but here's one thing that I learned that FLOORED ME in both Kenya and Tanzania, the EXCHANGE RATE for a $1 USD is lower than that of $5 USD or higher. Tipping is fine with $1 for small tasks, but bring some $5's for drivers and guides and bundle some money for tips to wait staff ... no imposition on you ... more for them.
