For our visits to Lake Manyara, The Crater & South Serengeti, this was most conveniently positioned.
Their rooms are HUGE, clean & airy; their staff extremely cheerful & efficient; the grounds sprawling, postcard-pretty & excellently maintained; their packed safari breakfast/lunch "boxies" adequate.
If, at all, I have a gripe (a TINY one!) it's that while their food is good, it could use a slight improvement.
Having said that---I'd definitely not stay anywhere else in the area.
Thank you, Farmhouse---it's so very easy to recommend you to people looking for an excellent place to stay!
