We visited the Manor during a staying at Shangri La estate: beatiful location and great attention to details. Suggested on the way to a safari and to spend a day learning about the coffee plantation and its owner coffee culture. Thanks for your friendly welcome and attention. Enjoy.

This is a beautifully kept place with wonderful accommodations. Not many animals except for the horses, which were available to ride. There was also a nice tour of the coffee plantation which surrounds the manor. The food was wonderful and the ambiance was great.

This was our last night in Tanzania while driving for the last 8 days in the Serengeti. The Manor is located close enough to the Ngorongoro crater that you can stay there with only a short drive away. It is located on a very large coffee planation and the rooms are all little duplex cottages that make up the property...

A Tudor Lodge in the middle of this conservation area? You bet. We had Cottage number 1. It was the furthest out, but right next to the herb garden that the chef uses everyday. Fireplace in the room, hot water bottles in the bed. Excellent lounge and dining room. Nice Wine menu . Beautiful

The Manor is really very beautiful - the grounds and buildings are delightful but I feel the service wasn't great and certainly not 5 star. Our meal was also not good - the risotto wasn't cooked and practically inedible. We only stayed one night so this may have been a blip. All in all a good hotel buy not outstanding.
