Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Extremely terrible lodge, they stole my gold ring from my room with duplicate keys and never returned it. The manager/owner of the lodge is also disrespectful. The heaters don’t work at all, poor bathroom and poor food facility. This is a nightmare. Never go to this place

If you want to spoil your experience of travel then you should opt for it. Location very bad, service terrible. It was charged as B & B , but that was billed. From booking the response was so prompt, that we assumed they were waiting for us. On arrival, we found nothing prepared. We had to go in the kitchen to feed our hungry kids. From a cup of tea to a piece of onion, before providing, they were ready to bill. It was a disaster to choose this lodge, had it not been for a good group that we were in, we would have regreted this trip.
And even the owner of the lodge seems to be just not bothered. Inspite of complaining to him , he never bothered to pick our calls or revert to our msgs.

Please, its better not to go lushoto than to go in this lodge.

Response from Shelukindo S, Owner at Shellu Lodge
Responded 15 Apr 2018
Please, note that, the reviewer is not a genuine Regular traveler. Shellu is a Lodge located 14km away from Lushoto District Town. It is not a Highway Hotel keeping ready prepared foods for Visitors or passerby s. Regular Travelers and Customers do understand the Boarding and Breakfast charges in.Lodge, these, does not need over emphasis. Shellu lodge insists that, when there a need to have food ready on arrival, a request be made for food requirements prior to arrival. Sincerely, Shelukindo S

Thank you for your friendly manner we enjoyed you all as you kindly served us.
The food was very good and we enjoyed it every morning.
The only area you could improve on was making sure your guests had clean and dry towels every day as wet towels are not nice to dry with.
The bed was comfortable nicely made every day and the bathroom was cleaned well.
Again thank you very much!!

This lodge svc is very bad. We stayed here only one night but the manger foreced us to pay two nights because of late check-out. There is no clear rule but the manager speak check-out time is 9:00 a.m. If you are late, you will pay additional. The mindset of this lodge is very poor.

Response from Joseph J, Director at Shellu Lodge
Responded 10 Jan 2015
Shellu lodge management regrets so much for the manager not knowing the rules and regulation of the lodge. The lodge manager have been warned and instructed to abide by the laws and regulation of the lodge. Check out time is 10:00am. However customers are allowed to keep their belongings at the lodge reception or strong room as long as they wish while they go out for tours and hikes particularly on their last check out day. Director. Shellu Lodge.
