The Manor is a relatively new hotel,with an old world charm at Ngorongoro,set out amongst beautiful gardens and coffee estate.The staff are caring and the guides for the Ngorongoro Crater game drives good.The food is fine dining and well laid out and served.The atmosphere at The Manor is charming.It even has an exclusive shop for those wanting to buy Tanzanite!
The special feature at The Manor is that Richard Johnston, the Manager visits each table at dinner and chats with the guests individually.This helps to break the ice and soon many guests are interacting with each other.Another special feature is that after 3 nights the departing guests at their last dinner are given a special farewell by the staff by a special dance around their table and cake!
However,those involved with safaris please note that it takes two hours to reach the Crater floor from The Manor as compared to hotels located on the rim of the Crater which have an advantage.Even with a 6:00 am start from The Manor one will reach the Crater by 8:00 am, which for serious photographers may not be good enough.But for easy access to Manyara National Park, The Manor is ideal as it gives access to both the Crater (2 hours) and Manyara Lake( 45 minutes).Further ,it has other activities which the hotels at the rim of the Crater may not necessarily provide.
