Stayed here between Kili hike/climb and Safari. The showers are spacious and hot (ensure the wall switch is on for several minutes before expecting hot water) the food is very, very good, and the staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. Transportation is available for around $20 if needed, TV is limited to about 3 stations, and the wifi gets a little choppy beyond the lobby and restaurant. It's not a long-term, resort style destination but you'll be very comfortable for a day or two before, after, or between activities in Tanzania.
