My wife and I stayed in this lodge for five days during Christmas time. We picked this lodge mainly based on reviews on it and we were very satisfied that we had make the right choice. Basically this was a new establishment and we could feel that the owner did put a lot of efforts in running this lodge.
The lodge was small in size and we liked it because of this we could get enough attention and service that we required. I must mentioned that Nelson, the manager in charge, was so attentive and he was always there with a smile and ready to help. Just to mention a few: In fact, Nelson and I had numerous email correspondence regarding my queries about this and that before our arrival at Lushoto. He always responsed fast and to the point. He helped arranging our bus stop transfers to and from the lodge. He helped us to find out bus schedules to Dar es Salaam and buying the bus tickets. He discussed with us about our breakfast and dinner menu and he helped us to arrange our day tours etc...
The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The shower was hot 24 hours. Wifi connection was good and much better than many other more expensive hotels in Tanzania. The overall setting of the lodge was good and with good views. As a whole, the lodge was a good choice and very much good value for money.
