I loved it, as a break away from the hustle and heat of Dar! Stayed here with a friend one weekend and felt very spoiled and relaxed afterwords. Beautiful rooms (bathrooms could be updated), great food. Pool was quite small but that was ok. Lovely feeling of luxury without outrageous price tag and great staff.

This continues to be a lovely oasis amongst the chaos of Dar. Restful, beautifully landscaped. The staff are uniformly wonderful. Very good gym for a hotel. Excellent food - Prakash, the Food Manager, is unusually diligent, and his chefs prepare a wide variety of Indian and other cuisines. The Courtyard has a charm that is lacking in the other hotels...

Loved the brief stay at the Courtyard - lovely fitted out and spacious room, though a bit dark. Very hot water in the shower, one should be careful. The courtyard itself with its tropical garden and comfortable lounging areas is beautiful and a great space to escape the chaos of the city outside.

Nice spot. We got dropped there to stay overnight before leaving to Arusha on safari. Easy from airport (late night arrival 30min and morning drop off to airport 30min at 7.30am). Clean, comfy with OK breakfast. I recommend the place.
