I stayed here on a Nomad overland tour, and this was by far one of the worst accommodations I have stayed in. The room was completely ridden with mosquitos, and they were even within and all over the bed, and had clearly been accumulating for some time. I killed over 60 in the tiny room. The only bedding provided was...

Spent a night here on an overland tour with Nomad. It's quite a random hotel- there is one big building and then some little chalets too. Our room did the job, it was clean anyways but nothing fancy. The bathroom was tiny- the shower was just hanging above the toilet, no cubicle. There is a snake park on the grounds...

This motel is quite avarage looking, but rooms are clean and pretty well kept. I payed for the room in a tour package, but some campers in the group wanted to upgrade to a room for one night because they were getting tired of sleeping in tents for weeks. That upgrade turned out quite expensive for what the rooms represented....

This place had air conditioning that worked !! Plain rooms that were clean. Mosquitos everywhere but they had nets, a little suffocating but just crank up the air con. Dark and spartan bar - my suggestion is go across the road and get the cheapest beer in Tanzania at the Tiger Lodge - it's colder too. Shower worked, the door...

We were on an overland truck tour, guessing the rates at this place would be low and reasonable. If you arrived not expecting much you would be fine, if you expected 3 star you would be unhappy. We lucked out in that our room had AC that worked as it was 38 degrees that day. Staff were super friendly, did...

We spent one night at this motel. The staff were friendly, but the room itself was in absolutely terrible condition. I was so hot after the safari and anxious to get to an air conditioned room, which it has advertised. We found out that the air conditioner in our room worked only for ten minutes and then shut off permanently...

The room was nice a big, however the mozzie net would not fit over the bed properly, and it was held up to the ceiling by bailing twine that was tied and knotted. The toilet was leaking all over the floor, the water in the shower was cold and not a lot of water came out of the shower head....
