My stay at this lodge was much too short. The grounds were beautiful and the views were amazing. The lodge is located outside of one of the crater gates- it took at least half an hour from the crater floor to reach there. The location is particularly convenient if you are coming from or going to Arusha.
The cottages were very nice and included a sitting room, bedroom, and deck. They also have all of the conveniences you would expect in a hotel including free wifi. The weather was much cooler here than I expected so I appreciated the double sided fireplace. Meals in the lodge restaurant were wonderful. There were a limited number of vegetarian items on the dinner menu so the chef prepared a menu especially for us, which was delicious. Breakfast was wonderful as well. I did not try the spa but the menu looked very tempting.
Overall, this lodge has all of the conveniences of some of the more popular lodges near the crater but in my opinion is a lot more interesting and beautiful than staying in a standard hotel.
