This hotel was once a private house which now has small but pretty thatched bungalows in the grounds with views of lake Duluti in the background. The rooms are furnished to a good standard with a tv and larger than average bathroom. The gardens are immaculate and very pretty. This hotel was the first we visited for our safari. Meals very good with good selection. Large communal lounge with bar. The monkeys made an appearance at breakfast time and provided photo opportunities not to be missed. Small gift shop on site. Only down side you can see lake Duluti in the background but didn't get close up to visit as part of our package. We returned to this hotel at the end of our stay which is approx 1hr from Kilimanjaro airport. Would definitely use again
