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... More

We stayed a couple of nights at Eileen's Tree Inn while on safari in Ngorongoro. What a delightful place to come after a long, tiring day in the landcruiser. You are always met with a smile and lovely warm towel to clean off the worst of the dust and will then be shown to your cool & spacious room. Good... More

Quiet, great pool, and excellent food and service. Would really recommend. This was a trip arranged through an operator but would recommend suggesting this place especially over some of the others in the area.

I stayed here on 2 separate night on my Safari and found both nights to be superb. There is a pool should you have time to take a dip. (I found we were busy enough not to have time). The rooms were great, 4 posted bed- relatively comfy with a large bathroom. Each room had a seating area outside to... More

After long days of safari, this is the perfect place to relax. It felt like a resort to me, complete with a pool, beautiful gardens, and excellent food. It's very close to the town if you'd like to take a visit, but it's tucked away enough to feel private. We received excellent service, and the rooms were very nice and... More

The experience was fantastic. The staff could not have been more effective, kind and generous. Specifically, AnnaGrace, Sophia and the phenomenal chef, God Bless exceeded any expectation I had. The rest of the staff was great too, but I didn't get to know them on a first-name basis. The rooms were exceptional. I was very impressed. Little things like the... More
