Hit and miss. Awful dinner!

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 May 2021via mobile
So this was a hotel that only manages to get business based on the viewpoint right next door, and the views from some of the rooms. The food quality is mediocre and I was extremely annoyed that dinner took 1.5 hours. The hikes are crazy priced, they ask for hundreds of dollars for little hikes in local forests. You can get much better if you go direct to the guide. The rooms are boxy, claustrophobic and need updating. Bathrooms were humid. But clean. It’s a very average experience, only saved by its location and the view.

      We stayed at this hotel for 2nd time. There is really no words of the sight seeing from this hotel. You will experience clouds passing your room and hotel in the morning, amazing mountains scenery from this hotel, Great hospitality, service including food. The superstar staff Edward is very very helpful, welcoming. Also manager Michael and Anthony are too welcoming and kind. Hotel rooms are cleaned and well maintained. Hot water was available all the time and clean towels and quality toiletry were provided.

      We found good tour guide who knew area well, could speak English well and charged very nominal amount. He took us round for Lushoto area including Town, Waterfall, Farm etc. His name is Raphael +255765833856

      one suggestion is to put shower curtains in the bathroom.

      Horrible Hotel!! Would not recommend. Definitely not worth the hype. Services are terrible. There were lots of insects, snails and spiders right on top of our beds. Nail clippings found in room! Clearly not cleaned enough. When we attempted to complain to the owner, we were told that we can leave and the deposit wasn't returned to us. Rude owner was swearing and cursing all the way. Also, they force you to eat at certain timings only, all together in long tables along with the owners. YOU CANNOT ORDER ANYTHING EVEN IF YOU ARE HUNGRY!!

      This lodge is just excellent. One can see wonderful view of mountains and clouds passing in the morning hours, sun rise and sun set. The staff are so friendly smiling and helpful. The owner do come meet and greet you. Food was fine as well. We really enjoyed

      Tip: ask for the room from 11 onwards. You can see clouds passing your room

      Stayed here for two nights, the place is so cool you can't hear any noise, the room has the best view for the mountain, breakfast was the best, staff are very friendly and willing to help all the time, best place for a sunset view in Lushoto to top of the usambara mountain, perfect hot shower and good pressure.
