Pleasantly relaxing start to safari

It's a beautiful setting at Rivertrees and the grounds are delightful.

Quirky rooms full of character - and a fantastic night's sleep after the long journey! Pleasant food and helpful staff; no pool currently (not that we were wanting this) but work due to start soon apparently.

We enjoyed visiting Arusha National Park (and the canoe experience was fabulous) and would have been happy to spend more than the one night here.

Oasis of tranquility

It was such a relief to arrive in Rivertrees. Spacious rooms, warm running water, very attentive staff. Despite the fact that the pool was closed due to renovation, we enjoyed a quiet afternoon under the trees by the river.

The massage was OK but the towels and sheets used clearly not fresh.

Rivertrees Country Inn review

A nice place in grounds but the overall ambience is a little depressing if the light is not great as the grounds are rather surrounded by tall trees and schrubs.

Staff work hard to look after you.

Rivertrees Country Inn review

The owners were very welcoming.

The rooms were very pleasant and clean. (Its difficult to say much more as we arrived at 4.30 am due to a late flight and were off on safari by 11 am later that morning).

Rivertrees Country Inn review

Dinner good, breakfast box poor.

Because of our early flight next day, which was in fact moved forward to 7am, a lodge or hotel nearer to Arusha airport would have been better.

Rivertrees Country Inn review

Beautiful location - outside the hustle and bustle of Arusha, peaceful relaxing setting, excellent food and service. It was the perfect location for starting the trip (went from the airport to Rivertrees, then set off the next day for safari).

The only annoyance was having to pay extra for drinks (food was covered in the reservation, but we had to pay extra for bottles of coke and water). Seemed a bit silly.

Very nice and relaxing - beautiful setting

We missed the stayover on the way in due to problems with Kenya Air being late; however, we did stay at Rivertrees on the last day (day room) of the trip. The accommodations were top notch.

The open air dining room was very nice and the food was very good. We wished that we could have made the connection in Nairobi on time and stayed at Rivertrees on the way in.

Very comfortable room in a lovely setting

The room we were given was not standard but one of the lovely cottages close to the river. Service was good althoughn we found the menus a little repetative.

The transfer from the domestic airport at Arusha, rather than from the international airport, was much longer than we had anticipated.

The swimming pool was disappointing, looking rather the worse for wear.

Comfortable for a short stay

We spent one night at Rivertrees and it's comforable withour being particulaaly special.

it's a fair way from the centre of Arusha but good as a base for walking in the national park.
