It is a two-story building. The family lives on the first floor; downstairs is the bar, dining room, and veranda with easy chairs. It is a perfect place to lounge in the evenings. Meals are also served here.
Back from the road, there is a low building with 10 rooms, facing a garden and palm trees. The rooms are small but adequate. They have seen better days but are comfortable enough. Two single beds, mosquito nets and a fan, a large table, a chair and a built-in wardrobe, en-suite bathroom (quite basic and with cold water only).
Breakfast is a bit scanty: tea and three slices of toast, margarine and a small blob of jam. On the other hand, when we ordered a pancake in the evening, we got two large pancakes with lime and sugar for Tsh 700 (€ 0,70). The rooms are good value for money. We paid Tsh 7000 (€ 7) for a double room.
Evening meals are big portions, and Dimitra advised us to take the lasagne, which was freshly made for that evening. The next day she had made mousaka, which was mama Pierna’s traditional recipe handed over from mother to daughter.
