We stayed there for 2 nights; our bungalow was spacious but the promised view in Mount Meru and Kilimanjaro were despite on big green houses around. The furniture in the room was not working completely well and some things were fixed just in a very African way-done but no focus

"Since it is located on the hill, it might be a quite exercise if your room is down to the foot of the hill."
"If you don't want to climb that hill few times a day ask for a hut on the top of the property."
"There are a lot of stairs, if mobility is an issue, ask for one of the rooms at the top (still stairs but less). Room 3 I think is best?"
"all have good views and if lucky a view on the Roof of Africa!"
"Many steps, not well lit at night. If steps a problem, stay close to dining area. Cottages well-separated for privacy and quiet."
US$ 130 - US$ 191 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
