"Guide needs revision!"

1 night Arrived 21 Oct 2008
"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." See all these reviews: 6n in Tanzania

"Arusha Coffee Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 17 Sep 2008
"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." See all these reviews: 10n in Tanzania; 1n in Kenya

"Arusha Coffee Lodge review"

1 night Arrived 10 Jul 2008
"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." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania; 8n in Zanzibar
