We stayed here on the first night of our trip as a stop-over between airport and Lake Manyara. Hotel is set in nice grounds and staff are pleasant enough, however we did suffer a "mix up" over the cost of lunch, when we were charged a la carte price on a set menu because we chose to skip one course. The waitress could or would not understand when we tried to sort it out, so we ended up paying the extra as it was only a few pounds.
Rooms were nice and comfortable.
If I were to repeat the whole trip, I would skip this stop over and get straight to Lake Manyara.
