Guide needs revision!

Five minutes from the airport and close to town.However beside main road which is very busy and noisy from before dawn until after dusk. Also beside the very busy Arusha airport with a lot of arriving and departing flights. Not much chance of rest if you are tired after an all night flight!

Your guide states " .....the excellent restaurant serves a spit-roasted lunchtime grill and a sumptuous a la carte dinner." On arrival we had lunch which to say the least,was not good. Selection was poor ranging from burgers to fish and chips and other appalling choices.

Far cry from the spit-roasted lunch and 5-star accolade given in guide! We went for the burgers as the best of a bad lot. Awful. I left mine. Waiter service was poor as well. For dinner that night it wasn't exactly sumptuous. It was ok....after having returned both dinners as they were cold! Breakfast was fine.

On our return we were offered a set lunch which was quite ok and the service was good. They said set lunch was on offer every day.... so i wonder why we were offered a la carte first visit. Bad waiter? Possibly. The chalets were superb.

Arusha Coffee Lodge review

This is a very practical stop over if you are going to the far reaches of Nothern or Western Tanzania. The rooms are fantastic, but the location close to the airport and the path running behind the lodges, can make it a little noisey.

Arusha Coffee Lodge review

Not here too long less than 12 hours altogether.
Staff were good and friendly very helpful.
Room was clean and comfort.
Breakfast was ok, only meal we had here.

The Lodge served its purpose as being a stop over on the first night from Kilimanjaro Airport and then onwards to Tanangire Park.

Overnight stops

A welcome break at the start and finish of our holiday. One minor point we thought we had only B&B but Expert Africa's team in Tanzania had booked us full board - not a problem!

Rooms excellent - food excellent - service excellent

Passing through

Ok but no more, but used only for overnight stays so we were all tired and the weather wasnt goo which didn't help the overall impression.

Attentive and helpful staff
