Although we stayed there just for one night at the end of our five day safari trip we had a good time. The meals for the dinner and breakfast were very good; our cottage was clean, nicely decorated and spacious. The garden is interesting with very dense vegetation and the Irish Pub is a great place for chill-out offering wide range of drinks and wines. It would be much better if the place was located closer or within Ngorongoro Conservation Area than in Karatu, because somehow you just loose the safari feeling here. But again, after the all day long drive and arrival in the evening hours it really doesn’t matter a lot. Nice place with staff really trying hard to please their guests.
