The Springlands was our base for a Mt. Kilimanjaro climb. It's owned by the climb outfitter, Zara Tours, and I have no idea what the rates are, it was a package price. Bottled water and beer were reasonably priced.
No-one will ever rate this a 5 star hotel, or even 4 stars.
However it suited the purpose, two nights before the climb and one night after.
The rooms were acceptable in context, and clean aside from dead insects on the bathroom floor.
The grounds were well maintained.
The staff were friendly and attentive.
The food was marginal, they'll be getting no Michelin stars anytime soon.
While this is a lukewarm review the acid test is "Would you go back", and yes, I would. For where it is, it's probably pretty good. You're not going to find a Hilton in Moshi and as a base for mountain climbing it's perfectly adequate.
