We spent 1 night at Forest Hill Hotel, as part of a group tour. The check-in process was easy, with staff helping take luggage to the scattered rooms. The rooms were spacious and clean. We had dinner and breakfast at the Hotel and both are buffet. The range of offerings was certainly adequate, not extravagant but of quite reasonable quality. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The grounds of the hotel were beautifully maintained.
If visiting Arusha, I would have no hesitation in recommending the Forest Hill

I stayed here for two nights with my husband on my honeymoon and it was the perfect start to our holiday. We were welcomed by friendly staff bearing fresh watermelon juice and then shown to our room. It was much more spacious than I anticipated and good water pressure in the bathroom. We had a little outdoor balcony and it was so quiet at night so no issues sleeping at all. We didn’t have any mosquito nets but they weren’t really needed at all. The hotel itself is set in wonderful grounds; the gardeners clearly take excellent care of the beds and the pool area is clean and tranquil. The menu for dinner is a three course set menu that gives you enough options to suit most people and very good quality food. My husband was recovering from viral tonsillitis for the first night and the staff couldn’t have been more accommodating - would absolutely recommend this place!

Very nice hotel. We started our trip with a night stay here and ended it with another night stay here. Very nice. The lunch menu was somewhat lacking in variety, but the breakfast buffet was really nice. The staff and the grounds were beautiful, clean and airy. the room was comfortable and was the only place with a mini fridge in the room. We were able to refrigerate our bottled water for cold water!! The generator could be a bit loud at night and the air conditioning can be hit or miss, but the property was very nice. I'd stay here again.

I really enjoyed my stay at Forest Hill Hotel, the rooms are so good, very clean, the bed was comfortable, the bathroom was so clean, and they had all the needed amenities.
I got to enjoy coffee at the comfort of my room, I watched news and got to know what was happening around the world.
The staffs were so friendly, from the gate to the reception, the waiters, the porters, the gardeners, I really felt at home.
The food was so amazing, and they had varieties I could choose from.
The view was to die for, i enjoyed my breakfast facing mount Meru and You can imagine the feeling, i even wished i could extend my stay but i had a tight schedule.
I recommend the Hotel and will visit again and again.

We spent one wonderful night at Forest Hill Hotel after a safari trip. The hotel was recommended by our safari operator, and we are so glad that we were able to stay here. The 2-story bungalows are arranged beautifully on the grounds. The palm trees and flowers and other plants are lush and inviting. Our room was superior - good size, air conditioning, free wifi, big bathroom. Everything was clean and fresh. We enjoyed the small balcony for morning tea.

The staff was truly excellent: friendly, helpful, professional, and happy to have us staying at the hotel. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the large, bright restaurant. There is also a restaurant patio to enjoy. The dinner menu was somewhat limited, but the food was good. The breakfast buffet was good.

We wish would could have stayed longer to enjoy the quiet, beautiful environment. Highly recommend!

I had a lovely stay at this hotel. Great place to relax after long travel.
I had some great conversations with the staff that I will cherish.

I came with a large group and everyone had their own room and was very comfortable. The pool was wonderful.

Had a short and lovely stay at Forest Hill Hotel in Arusha recently. The rooms were spick and span and comfortable. The bathroom was spacious and clean with good hot water facility. The property itself is beautiful, with gorgeous views all around and the staff is warm and welcoming. They have a good breakfast spread and the food is delicious. Highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a comfortable stay in Arusha.

We stayed here one night in October on our way to the safaris. The hotel is close to the airport, it is fairly modern, although the rooms are quite dated. Staff were kind and friendly. Room was clean and comfortable. The hotel grounds are quite big, there is space for a nice walk but could be maintained better. The pool is small but has a nice view of the mountain. Food was okay.

I couldn't take pictures with my camera at a pool with my friends. The same pool where a white showed with a camera. I asked why she could and not me. They said she was white! Yes, imagine? I had no problems with other services, Food was Ok, But the reply i got to my question still burns inside me. Racists!🥲

Hello P. Thank you for patronizing us and more so for bringing this to our attention. We value our guest's feedback. Forest Hill Hotel has a zero-tolerance policy against discrimination of any kind and we sincerely apologize for this experience. In the recent past, we had an incident that forced us to restrict filming and photographing around the pool areas, especially by our day patrons. The incident made some guests uncomfortable with pictures being taken, knowing that they could end up online for one reason or another. Therefore professional photography requires prior arrangements which can also be done while on site. We would like to invite you back to Forest Hill Hotel for a one-on-one with our management team, as we prosecute this matter to a conclusion. Our team will be more than happy to book for you a less busy day to take pictures at your convenience in the future. Please contact us at booking@foresthill.co.tz or telephone no.+255764630188 for this arrangement. Once again, thank you for bringing this to our attention and please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

I can’t say enough about our stay at Forest Hill. The staff was always helpful, professional, and kind. We were traveling with a student group and received the best service. The facilities were clean, comfortable and secure. I can’t wait to take my family here.
