I stayed at the Springlands Hotel with a G Adventures tour this past week.
I had paid for a single room with my tour, and was much happier with my room on the return from the trek than my arrival room (twin beds in the first room, and 3/4 beds in the second room, and the second room in a quieter area near the front of the hotel). However, in both cases, the room was clean, there was hot water (if you turned on the switch for the hot water heater), and I found the beds comfortable.
There are mosquito nets around each bed which proved useful as the mosquitoes come out as soon as the sun goes down.
The free Wifi didn't work in the rooms, but worked well enough (though slow and disconnected regularly) in the area by the gift shop and near the bar.
Transfer to the airport on departure was good but I was sitting there waiting and the staff didn't let me know the driver had arrived. It was only when I asked when it was coming (15 minutes after scheduled time) that he told me it was one of the cars already there.
Staff friendly and helpful.
Location seemed a little bit out of the way, but they do have shuttles into Moshi (about 10 minute drive).
Included breakfast was great with a lot of fresh fruit and many options (including eggs to order). Dinner was good too (at $10) with some healthy options.
