Loved Loved Loved the Manor! The gardens, the setting, the small of coffee blossoms, the people, the food.....what a gem of a place. The proximity of this luxurious Dutch oasis to the Ngorongoro crater and Lake Manyara is also a plus. Take time to get a massage and enjoy the beautiful bath tub. Wish we had extra days at the...

Styled on Cape Dutch architecture, The Manor is a modern hotel but with a colonial English manor feel. We stayed for three nights to purely relax and decompress. The weather was lousy which added to the hunkering down feel of the place with log fires; sweeping vistas of coffee plantations; stunning views of the surrounding hills amazing food; and a...

The room is a very large suite, completely separated to others, the gardens are very well taken care of and the main house is very elegant and well decorated. The food was very good, and the staff at the hotel were helpful at all times (special mention to Manager Roger). Our guide, Emmanuele, made the perfect experience taking us to...

Another excellent example of gracious hospitality in an old world luxury setting. The cottages here are beautiful. The people here were very attuned to looking after their guests, and they made us feel at home. Sharife was an amazing fellow, Swahili language instuctor, comic, gracious and intuitive. The food delicious, the beer cold, and the conversations stimulating. A very comfortable...

English manor style. Spacious and well-furnished rooms. Responsive staff. Two serious problems for me: (1) Massage: Because of prior surgeries I have residual pain in my wrists and elbows. I asked the masseuse to not massage these. She ignored me once, so I told her again. She ignored me a second time so I had to push her away. (1)...

Good morning from The Manor, I have read with great concern about your experiences at The Manor. At the very outset, my sincere apologies, you have my true empathy in both instances. Firstly, regarding the masseuse, whilst she seemingly ignored your request, she must have misunderstood you. It would be totally our of character for either masseuse to deliberately hurt...

We spent 3 days/night here in February 2017. We came in from the Serengeti Pioneer tent camp, had lunch and enjoyed the property for the rest of the day.

We stayed at The Manor with our daughter and son in law for a night in late October, which is the beginning of the short rainy season in Africa.
