The hotel was awesome! Offered such a delicious variety of food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The large array of luscious greenery that engulfs the pathways and cottages makes you feel like you are hidden away from the world! My favourite part is the friendly staff who great you with a refreshing towels and glass of fresh juice! Definitely would...

We stayed at the inn one night after spending the day at tarangire. The inn aesthetically is stunning. The barn is incredibly looking with very high ceilings and a thatched roof. Pool is great and the rooms were lovely. The staff were super friendly. The only con is the food. The dinner and breakfast and subsequent lunch box were not...

We stayed here both en route to the Serengeti, and again on our return before hearing back to Arusha. It was a comfortable place to stay; the rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable. The shower was excellent - hot water and fabulous pressure - possible the best of the entire safari! It was also great to swim in...

We stayed at Eileen's Trees for a total of 7 nights during our Tanzania Safari. It is very well located for day trips to several local parks such as Ngorongoro, Lake Manyara, and Tarangire. After a dusty sweaty day driving and walking around it was wonderful to come back to Eileen's and be greeted with beautiful smiles and cool washcloths....

Welcomg staff, spotless and roomy cottages, good food (not overly 'Westernised') and bird-filled lush gardens made this a great place to stay for three nights. We revisited the stunning Ngorogoro crater (staying outside the park makes things a lot less expensive) but Serengeti and the other parks are also easily reached. The guide / driver arranged by Eileens was excellent...

This was my first trip to Tanzania, and I was pleasantly surprised with this wonderful gem of a hotel. The service is incredible - from the warm hand towels to refresh after a long day to the terrific food. The staff at Eileen's really takes good care of you. I was in Karatu for a week for work, and I...

Stayed at this mid priced hotel for one night in transit between Tarangire Park and Ngorongoro Park. An oasis in the midst of dust! Superb attention from staff and excellent African food. Check out the herb and salad garden and swimming pool. Spacious rooms and bathrooms and everything works.

We stayed here on the first night of a 4 day safari with friends. The service was incredible! I highly recommend staying here if you are in the area. The staff were great, from dusting off our bags on arrival, a welcome fresh fruit drink and more. There is an amazing swimming pool for guests and a wonderful view of...
