This is a very nice place to stay in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area. The rooms are large equipped with a great bathroom with lots of hot water; a fireplace in the living room; comfortable netted beds and a beautiful view of the coffee plantation and gardens. There was a large deck off of our room with comfortable chairs where you could just sit and relax. The furnishings of the room were all well appointed and comfortable. There was a plantation nd garden tour which I am afraid we were just too tired to take in. There was also a Masai dance show with audience precipitation which was good and a lot of fun.
Dinner was buffet style and very good. Lots of choice and very comfortable surroundings. Breakfast was also in the dining room and buffet style. If you couldn't find what you wanted there you must be a very picky person!!
The shop had some very interesting and decently priced items for sale. Did a little shopping there but wished I had more time to shop a bit more.

Room Tip: Our lodgings were quite far from the dining room. Just fine for us but if you have mobility problem...

Nearest accommodation to the crater and ideally situated. The grounds are teeming with birds and from our room on the edge we were able to watch many Guineafowl going to roost and an Eagle Owl perched on the nearest tree each evening before going off to hunt. The rooms are spacious and have everything you will need but it may be a longish walk to eat from the further out rooms. Food itself was buffet and adequate. Maasai staff were very nice and efficient and an outdoor log fire in the highland evening was perfect. On arrival after 2 days travel it was a bit of a drag having the reception lady drone on for ages about loads of things. We just needed to know where the room was and what time food was but she insisted on giving us the full speech much to our annoyance. One of the local workers tried our door early one morning which was disconcerting despite the apologies, Overall a good base for the crater and nearby Lake Manyara

This was not really our sort of place. There are more than 50 bungalows set in pleasant gardens, but completely isolated from any wildlife (except for a tame marabou stork). Our bungalow was large and clean, simply and functionally furnished. The downsides of living in a big resort as opposed to a lodge or tents close to the wildlife were compensated for by the amenities (hair dryer, power sockets, Wifi, internet café, swimming pool, pedicure, manicure, gift shop, Masai dances...). The guided walk round the coffee plantation was very interesting. The restaurant was large (there were a lot of people!) with a pleasant bar area, but the buffet food was rather poor (dry and tough chicken, many dishes cold). Service was very friendly but haphazard. If you want to stay in a perfectly acceptable mass-market resort, this may be for you. If you want to experience wild Africa, it's not.

Only spent one night here, but would of loved to spend more. The property was breathtaking and rooms extra large. They gave tour of the gardens. They grow and produce much of the food that they serve on a daily basis. The staff was friendly as can be and loved to sit and talk about Africa and where I was from. Great location and highly recommend to anyone traveling in that area.

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!
