lovely place to relax before going to camps.

Nice rooms and lovely restaurant area.

Pool area quite small but adequate for short stay.

Woken by very loud call to prayer from nearby mosque which could be an issue if you were staying for several nights.

Back to Civilization

Machweo was only the base for our homeward journey (we left there at two a.m. !)

The diner, however, was very nice and our wakeup-call at night on time !

Machweo review

We were there only a single night and it was generally good. We had an excellent meal and a well earned massage.

The accommodation served its purpose while we waited to fly to Nairobi but there is probably no reason to stay longer than one night.

Machweo overnight

We emerged from Arusha airport late at night after a long day of travel and were driven about 45 minutes to Machweo lodge. It's always hard to get your bearings in the dark, but the staff was welcoming and our "cottage" was comfortable although without air conditioning, which is rarely needed (except that night!).

In the morning we could see the beautiful grounds and surroundings - unfortunately we were off on safari that day and so unable to enjoy them. Breakfast was delicious on the deck with a view of the mountains and the sounds of village life below.

Pleasant and would recommend as a stopover while in Arusha.

Good food at Machweo

We spent two nights at Machweo. It was a handy starting point as about a hour from Kilimanjaro airport and just outside Arusha. The food was excellent at every meal and, although not far from the main road, the rooms quiet and clean.

Recommend visiting the Cultural Heritage Centre just on the other side of Arusha, which also boats a fabulous modern gallery displaying African art and sculpture and a craft centre. On leaving we had a small problem over a $60 charge for the taxi to the Cultural Centre. We pointed out that it stated it was free in the guest information folder. We hope that has now been made clear!
