If your looking for an amazingly nice place to stay, with a friendly staff, near Lake Manyara and reasonably priced, than Lake Manyara Wildlife Lodge is the place.
Consider the elegant wooden architecture the structure is built with as bonus.

I stayed at Lake Manyara, Ngorongoro, Seronera and Lobo from the
Hotels And Lodges properties, and I am giving all 4 places a 5 star rating for the superb service, quality and value.

I went there as a part of my Safari, the place is nice, the view for Lake Manyara is absolutely beautiful.
The rooms does not have Air conditioner, but is not needed you can open your window it have insects screens, and have a pleasant night.
The breakfast is not to good, the Dinners are ok, Rooms are big enough, you have your small balcony facing the lake.

This was one of 8 places we stayed while on Safari in Tanzania--and turned out to be the least favorite of the 8. The view and setting was beautiful. We appreciated being met with a scented wash cloth and fruit beverage when we arrived. The bar and lounge area was done very nicely as well as there was an intriguing local 4 person musical group playing at night on the patio (they had very unusual instruments and enjoyed sharing them with us) The staff seemed willing to help where they could and the food was adequate. The reason I am not rating high or raving about this establishment is due to comparison with other places we stayed on safari. While the rooms were sufficient to have a safe and fairly clean room, the rooms were very small and once the bed nets were spread around the bed, there was hardly any room at all to move around the room and it was hard to get ventilation in the room as there was not a screen on the slated windows. The food was adequate but did not stand out on the quality--again in comparison with what we ate elsewhere on safari. It seemed more "touristy" type restaurant setting and food--lacking in local "color". The item that would keep me from ever coming back was the fact that our driver/guide was not allotted to eat or stay there with other driver/guides as was the common practice on our other accommodations on safari. On our safari, our driver/guide became our friend who we will continue to keep in touch with when we are home. Going into the stay at the hotel, I was not aware that he would not be included to eat with us before it was too late--otherwise we would have paid ourselves for his lodging and food. This is NOT the way to treat the driver/guides for without them, a huge percentage of the clients at the hotel would not be there.

The location is beautiful. It was totally unexpected coming off the main highway. The pool was the best and cleanest on our safari. It was a nice change to be able to sit out by the pool with a gin & tonic and actually enjoy the pool. The food selection was great. The chef was knowledgeable with gluten free options. The rooms were super clean and the staff was very friendly. Just watch out for the baboons out in the yard and don't leave your room unlocked....as the baboons will find their way in :)

This lodge was night, we stayed here the last night of our trip. The rooms were comfortable and they had a nice pool and bar area. The views of Lake Manyara were also nice. The food was okay and was buffet for dinner and breakfast. The only negative was the staff was very loud when preparing breakfast. It woke us up an hour earlier than we had planned. We also had loud staff waiting outside our door to carry our bags about 30 minutes before we needed to leave. It kind of ruined the peace and quiet of our last bit of time here.
