Meru View Lodge
Ranked #20 of 191 Speciality Lodging in Arusha
Reviewed 3 September 2017

Staying in Meru View Lodge for 7 nights with other conference attendees (10 of us roughly).

The staffs here are super friendly and helpful. For example, they provide us with access to local transfer for our day to day activities and they also waited for us when we returned. They just treated us like a family and it just made my first Africa experience so memorable.

I don't usually do any review but I just want to recommend this lodge to all future travellers. And I will definitely stay here again if I visit Arusha/Kilimanjaro

Room Tip: all rooms are good!

The three of us booked a family room at this hotel which was perfect after our 4D3N Mount Meru trek. The hotel is well located being right outside of the Arusha National Park gates and since we had an early morning flight the next day, it was perfect that the hotel was closer to JRO airport than staying back in Arusha.

The family room was very clean and spacious and was actually two separate rooms. For the whole afternoon, we sat on the terrace nursing our sore muscles while enjoying complimentary tea and cake delivered to our room and relaxing in the quaint garden. Margaret was extremely hospitable and tended to all our needs.

Our trip in Tanzania started with a stay in Meru View Lodge. We received a warm welcome from both Eveline and Margaret who looked after us very well. The lodge, the pool and the beautiful garden were well-kept and it was very relaxing when we came back from our trips in Arusha National Park.
The food was very good, we had super lunch boxes for our trips into ANP and the dinners were special (the best lamb we had).
We really enjoyed our stay and we would like to thank you all again! All the best for Meru View Lodge!

After an intensive ten days tour including safari and tent camps we decided to rest for 2 days in a nice lodge. Meru view lodge was perfect for that! The rooms were really nice: big, hot water, beautiful decoration, amazingly comfortable beds and small terrace with view on the garden and swimming pool. We took full board and i am happy we did cause the food and the service were perfect (although lack of privacy while eating sometimes). The place is quiet, full of birds. There is a nice walk in the village around, and the national park is just 2min from there. The staff is super friendly and helpful if you have any question or request! Warmly recommended, i would love to go back one day. Thank you!

Very good place to stay, nice bungalows in a beautiful garden. Excellent and very friendly service, even for special needs. The lodge is very close to the entrance of Arusha National Park. We would return anytime.

Beautiful grounds with cozy, well decorated rooms. The staff were so friendly and accommodating. Opt for half board to make the most of the amazing meals fresh form the garden. 2 Minutes drive from Arusha National Park.

I stayed at this lodge for 2 weeks while on a volunteer program and at the time it was not open for tourists. Our room was very comfortable and clean. All of our meals were made at the lodge and were delicious. There is a small pool and while we didn't swim, we would gather around to pool to chat during our free time. The only down side was that we didn't consistently have hot water for our showers. This was not true for every room however. Management was aware of the problem and was planning on fixing it. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and accommodating.
