This place is fantastic. The rooms are comfortable and cozy. The staff, Sandra and Frank are very welcoming. The food is delicious and their advices are always on point. It really is a peace heaven for anybody looking for a place not that for from the city centre.

Clean, comfortable, relaxed accommodation and incredibly welcoming and attentive hosts that will help you make the most of all that Tanzania offers. Sandra and Frank made everything easy - we felt safe and well cared for from the moment we arrived. Laundry and a tasty home-cooked meal or takeaway delivery was never a problem, breakfasts were fabulous. Sandra's local knowledge...

Stayed here for one night but excellent hosts and really made to feel at home. Sad we couldn't have stayed longer! Quiet with good clean rooms. Helpful recommendations for what to explore in Moshi. Thank you

If you are looking for great B&B accommodation close to Mt Kilimanjaro, this is the place for you! My family booked the 2 bedroom cottage for one night and we were not disappointed. Sandra was a fantastic host who looked after us as soon as we drove through the gate. From arranging a coffee tour, to airport transfers to inviting...

What it is Not I want to start with what TemboTamu is not. It is not a high end five star hotel, in a big city, like all of the sterile 5 Star hotels everywhere on the globe. These hotels differ only in subtleties like décor and the uniforms their employees wear. If this is what you are looking for...

We stayed in the cottage which is equipped with 2 bedrooms, a living room in which there is a couch, a little fridge and all you need for coffee and tea. The bathroom offers hot water (electric shower). Breakfast is awesome: eggs, bread, fresh juice and a lot of exotic fruits from the garden. The best part of this B&B...

This guesthouse is a small one with some nice details created by the owner. The city is a little bit to far from the city but for a cheap price they can organize a taxi with a pick up service back to the hotel. The breakfast is fresh and the most of the ingredients are selfmade, like the bread and...

Sandra and Frank are great hosts and go out of their way to make you happy. Its a pleasure to share their house . However apart from the cottage, the other 2 rooms area quite small and cramped and and suitable for single occupancy. The beds are a tad small for six footers and I had my feet hanging out...

Thanks for your review and kind words about our breakfast and sharing time with us. It certainly was enjoyable to have a couple of meals with you and hear all your Tanzanian travel adventures. We do value constructive criticisms regarding our services and amenities. The clean water leakage in the cisterns has been addressed, as were the doors (which were...
