Stayed here several years ago and was thoroughly satisfied. The views are amazing! Staff is friendly and accommodating and the food was excellent. The location is convenient to get into town or have a pre/post safari respite.

Excellent food. Excellent service. A little bit pricey. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. My friends enjoyed the spa facility and we all enjoyed sitting by the pool after climbing Kilimanjaro.

Lovely setting and food. You get a selection based on the daily fresh produce and no issues whatsoever being vegetarian either. Great views to enjoy during dinner.

We had a set menu meat $75 and vegetarian $55. The service, the setting and the food was amazing. Each course came with a recommended wine. The portions were small, delicious, very original and beautifully presented.

We arrived very late (10:30pm) and the kitchen stayed open to serve us a three course meal (with choices for each). I had snapper fish which was well prepared. Also had breakfast the next morning - some fresh fruit, juices, cereal, select pastries, bread, cold meats and a hot menu.
