We stayed in tumaini cottage pre and post our safari in Tanzania. Although a little out of town, the rooms, food and service were lovely. Andy the owner went out of his way to look after us, which was wonderful after time camping in the wilderness!
I would definitely go back to Tumaini cottage.

I have travelled to 96 countries around the world, and stayed in places ranging from hostels to the Hilton Waldorf in London. However, Andy's Tumaini cottage stands out as one of the best places I have ever stayed.

The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Food is excellent. However, most importantly, Andy the owner is an absolute gem. He is so kind and caring. He even stayed up to 1 am to give us a transfer to the airport.

Stay here - you will have No regrets.

Tumaini cottage was absolutely lovely. We stayed there for one night after our safari. They greeted us with cold juice as we pulled in the front gate. The room was clean, big, and the bathroom was amazing after a week of camping. Hot water was plentiful. The dinner was good, a bit overpriced but good, and the breakfast was good too. The staff was very friendly, although not as down to earth as other places. But no complaints! Our stay was great and we would return. Thank you!

Andy was outstanding ! They took perfect care of of us and the rooms great. We even ended up calling while having issues at another place on our trip and he stayed up late and greeted us with open arms. I can not say enough good things about our stay here!

I'm not sure what I was expecting but this place was lovely.

Our room was large, had a four poster bed, a powerful hot shower and a fridge. There was also a television with English channels which we hadn't experienced for a while. The place was quiet and a nice place to relax. There was also free wi-fi which was available in our room as well as the adjoining restaurant.

Andy collected us from the airport and we were given a warm welcome when we arrived.

We had dinner in the adjoining restaurant which was delicious. The restaurant also has a nice view.

All of the staff we came across were polite friendly and attentive.

Breakfast was very good and included eggs cooked to order and lots of lovely fruit - the avocado was amazing.

Location wise it's on the outskirts of town in a quiet area. It might be a bit difficult for some taxi drivers to find so a transfer organised by Tumaini Cottage might be a good idea.

We only stayed one night so didn't get a chance to walk around the area or see how close it was to walk into town but a taxi wouldn't take very long at all.

Would not hesitate to recommend and would stay again if we get a chance to be back in Arusha.
