Very accommodating
We booked here after another local lodge was very unsatisfactory and Mount Game Lodge was very accommodating for the last minute booking and made us a late meal and it was very nice. The service was very good and the facility and wildlife and history of the lodge was fascinating! I definitely recommend a visit here.

Game Lodge Stay
Such an amazing place for our last night in Africa. Lots of charm, history and character. Zummie the owner was very accommodating and friendly, the animals came out and said hello too before we left so much fun. Very good pizza and I recommend the passion fruit mojito !

Rustic Lodge in a Beautiful Setting
The Mount Meru Lodge is a rustic lodge in a beautiful setting with excellent service. Definitely the place to stay in Arusha.

Fair 4.0
Poor service
Hotel is nice in theory however in practice it is let down by the execution and service. The shower was cold and it took them over an hour to fix it which still didn’t give hot water until the next day. The hotel describes itself as a game lodge but in practice it is a few sad looking animals around a pond area with a lot of large birds which make a lot of noise. The how thing was more sad than an attraction. For dinner and breakfast the buffet was poor and the table cloths were dirty. The taxi to the airport was extortionate at $50 (we’d paid $30 to go further with another company) and it turned up 20 minutes late, without an apology from the hotel or the taxi driver. The staff in the restaurant were friendly but I definitely wouldn’t stay here again.

Wonderful start to our Tanzania trip
Our five day stay at Mount Meru Game Lodge was excellent. We were welcome late at night by a full staff. Our cottage was a little rustic but comfortable and it looked out on the pond where we could watch the collection of zebra, ostrich, water buffalo and other animals who live there. The Lodge dates back to the 50s and has a lot of history in the region. The staff helped us arrange day trips into Arusha, USA village, and the Arusha National Park. I was almost sad to go when we had to leave Togo on safari. Oh, and the food was very nice.

Charming historic lodge
Picked this hotel based on location (outside the city of Arusha in a tranquil setting) and its unique feature of an animal sanctuary - zebra right outside my room. Exceeded my expectations in all respects. Friendly and helpful staff, very good restaurant, and gracious proprietors (Zummi and Armando) who visit with guests on the patio in the evening. Excellent value - highly recommended.

Out of Africa Class and Charm
I had an amazing stay and wish I could have remained longer. The surroundings are beautiful and tastefully done. Service was excellent. It was a unique experience with the animals right out front and the ability to have every meal outdoors in a garden setting. The grounds have a feeling like Out of Africa meets old European charm. When I arrived I was provided with a wet cloth and delicious hot coffee from a press. At the entrance building there are black and white photos of the original owner who was a zoologist from Hungary and his family who currently own and manage the property. I enjoyed the food and talking to the owners. It is a quiet, calm and serene place. The swimming pool is small and in a cozy corner with privacy. The hotel manager helped me to arrange a visit to an organic coffee farm and went out of her way to assist me with rearranging my travel plans. I loved the cottage where I slept which had an outdoor seating area. There was a super comfortable bed, very soft sheets and the mattress was perfect. I would stay at Mt Meru Game Lodge again. It is not too fancy and was just right for my needs -- very relaxing.
