Amanda Marks

"If you need a night in Arusha and don't want to a 'standard' kind of hotel, Arusha Coffee Lodge is a good choice for a good quality stopover. Even though it's on the main road into Arusha coming in from Manyara, it has a tranquil feeling to it as the rooms are all spread out amongst the coffee plantation, and the tall old trees dotted throughout the grounds are beautiful. The staff are friendly and helpful. I can't see many people needing more than one or two nights here, but for that it's ideal."
