    Great room, spacious, fine beds. Helpfull staff, breakfast was good although the coffee is not but that is in most of Tanzania the case. A very nice pool but the water is cold! Lovely outside dining with a fireplace, set dinners but good!

    Nice rooms, good dinner and breakfast, good service, free wifi, nice small pool, nice surroundings and garden, nice staff. We came there straight from Kilimanjaro airport (about an hour drive) and rested well after tiring flights and before our safari trip began.
