Our family of 5, ranging from 74 to 9, loved the setting, food and welcoming hospitality. Comfortable and homely. We stayed two nights on our way to a safari. It was the perfect introduction to Tanzania. Thank you Witness and Vincent.

You might like to hear that we have by now replaced one of the two remaining bathrooms with bathtubs by a new bathroom with a shower. So, only our large library suite upstairs remains with a bathtub. All other bathrooms...

When we booked this guesthouse, we were looking at their previous location in Arusha which would have been very convenient for us. The new location was extremely inconvenient - this was no fault of the generous and caring staff but be VERY sure you are aware of the location before you book. For us, this added expenses getting to and...

Dear Guest, many thanks for your valuable comments about your recent stay with us. I am sorry to hear that you were mislead by our former location in the city center of Arusha.

Blues and Chutney was the beginning of our safari adventure. We were very warmly welcomed, had very comfortable accommodations...and the homemade meals were outstanding!!! All the staff were so helpful, friendly and simply made us feel at home...(there were 11 of us...ages ranging from 9-73!!) Wished we could have ended our trip there!!!

Dear Cheryl, dear Larry, many thanks for your nice comments about your stay with us in July. We remember you well - you and your lovely family.

If you need to chill and relax after or before your safari this spot is lovely. Or even if you are playing golf at Kili Golf course. This spot is really lovely. The staff are awesome and at your beck and call all the time. Well done lady's keep up the good work. The maps just need to updated.

Over a period of 8 months I've been visiting Arusha on business (monthly) for two or three day stays. I enjoy trying new places and I tried a number of hotels and b&b's during the first three months but stopped exploring when I found Blues. Blues is clean and tidy with friendly staff and owners who provide good food and...

Martina & Jeffery are most welcoming hosts in this very comfortable B&B in Arusha. The room was relaxing and the food and wine were outstanding.. The brunch we had here was excellent and the grounds are blooming with wonderful flowers. The music throughout put us in the right mood. I would recommend this location for anyone traveling to Arusha.
