We stayed here both before and after our Kilimanjaro climb we did with Shah tours. The staff at the hotel is friendly. The food in the restaurant especially the Indian food. My son thought the cheese naan and the chicken kebab was the best he ever tasted. The rooms are a bit rundown especially the bathrooms. The room we had when we came back had been sprayed for ants and they never cleaned up the dead ants. Also, the showers are hard to use as the water goes everywhere in the bathroom. The two things that marred our stay was that I left a pair of sandals in the outer pocket of my suitcase that we left in the hotel and they were taken. Als,o I bought a pair of pants at the gift store. I am not sure if the woman who works in the store does not speak good English but she quoted me one price on a pair of pants that I bought and then a different price was shown on our bill when we checked out. Other than that, it was a good stay.

Room Tip: It would be better to get a room away from the main road.

An extremely warm welcome after a very long and uncomfortable journey from Aisha and Suzanne. Who had beaming smiles all the time. Good value food and drink.
Bedrooms rather basic but I always felt safe.
Thank You

As soon as the gate opens into this hotel, you will find yourself in a lovely resort atmosphere surrounded by well-tended tropical vegetation and charming rooms with outdoor patios. The restaurant and bar are open air and located next to a sparkling clean pool. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was delicious. We stayed 2 nights, but would gladly have stayed longer if we could have. We highly recommend this place!

We have planed to have dinner in town but because of the delicious food we decided to have dinner in the hotel every night. The pool was very nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and very dedicated. We can just recommend this place.

Just completed our 7 day Machame, Mt. Kilimanjaro climb and post-climb 3 day Safari with Shah Tours, booked though Yampu (Vermont, USA). Both my wife and I summited without symptoms of altitude sickness; not so much as a headache. Our guides (Hillary & Musa) were fantastic! Pole! Pole! The Shah home office called our guide (while we were on the climb) to check and see that we were safe and to find out if we had made it to the summit; we were actually already on our way down. All of the handoffs were excellent. We felt very safe and well cared for. The Mountain Inn was a welcome stay after living in tents for a week and standing over open holes as toilets. The rooms were adequately comfortable. The pool was great! Very refreshing after the climb. Daiquirisatdawn must have a need to be pampered, but this couple (ages 59 & 61) were very pleased with the entire itinerary, accommodations, and transport. Once again, Hillary & Musa (on Kili climb), Richard (at Arusha National Park), cook, waiter, all porters, and the staff at Mountain Inn were excellent! Mountain Inn even did a load of laundry for us before leaving for Serengeti.
Thanks to everyone for helping us achieve a dream of a lifetime!
