"Beautiful setting with peaceful surroundings "

1 night Arrived 14 Jan 2019
"My husband and I absolutely adored Rivertrees. It’s tucked away like a hidden paradise. Room was lovely with comfy bed, food was delicious and staff was friendly. The layout and grounds are just beautiful. We woke up to monkeys playing in the trees outside our room and enjoyed walking down to the river. We wish we could have stayed longer, but we’re headed off to our safari location. We would love to stay here again and next time longer." See all these reviews: 6n in Zanzibar; 4n in Tanzania

"Rivertrees Country Inn review"

1 night Arrived 2 Oct 2017
"Lovely spot, and a great place to catch up on a few hours sleep and relax before the 'hard work' started.

Accommodation was comfy and well appointed. Pretty grounds and great to add several new bird species and watch blue monkeys before we'd even set foot in a Landcruiser. Staff were excellent. Bar and restaurant area were certainly up to standard.

We only stayed one night, but this would certainly be a great location to spend a few days looking at Arusha and environs" See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania

"Very pleasant"

2 nights Arrived 19 Sep 2017
"Rivertrees is a lovely place to stay in Arusha: lush and green, with very well-appointed, spacious rooms and good food in the restaurant.

Drinks at the bar were very reasonably priced and there's wifi in the public areas. Vervet monkeys provided some fine late afternoon entertainment.

It's about half-way between Kilimanjaro and Arusha airports, a 30-40 minute drive each. It was a convenient and very pleasant stop for a one-day layover in Arusha." See all these reviews: 11n in Tanzania

"Nice quiet location"

2 nights Arrived 18 Sep 2017
"The inn is located in a very good place. My room backed onto the Usa river, and the gurgling of the water in the background was nice and soothing.

The staff is polite and friendly, but were not always efficient.

The restaurant offerings are aimed for the western palate - it is good, but not great.

The rooms are clean and well appointed. Plenty of hot water in the shower." See all these reviews: 9n in Tanzania
