I stayed in two different rooms on our way up and back from Mole National Park and the north of the country. I found both rooms to be in a sub-standard condition with holes in pillow cases, dirty tables, large spider webs and ants in the toilets. The air conditioning was faulty in one of the rooms and I just... More

There were no kitchen staff, they had gone home as it was raining heavy so had to make do with beers and some snacks we had with us. On... More

We stayed here on two sperate occasions once for one night and then on the second occasion for 2 nights. On our first visit it was more or less in one day and out the next. Good rooms, plenty of hot water but the most solid pillows on the bed you could ever ask for. The staff were more than... More

All the basic amenities are here, rooms are well maintained, (swimming pool maybe a little bit dubious as it was shades of green), hot showers, secure off the main road and serving surprisingly good food from from their very charismatic bar and restaurant!

We stayed at this place twice for one night on a birding tour in Ghana. The restaurant is very small, the food average. WiFi didn't work the first night but did on the way back on the second night. I had two different rooms, one small and dirty, the second one a bit bigger and much cleaner. Certainly ok for... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a birding tour of Ghana. It is rather tired and run-down. The restaurant is tiny and dark, service friendly but pretty basic food, even for Ghana standards. The room was clean but the bed was rock hard, which was a problem for me. As a stopover, it is just barely adequate.

We stayed here on two separate nights, both before and after retuning from Mole. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. First time we were here the pool was sort of greenish. On our return from Mole it is nice and clear. Only bar is at the pool and service was very slow. AC worked, but not very... More

We stayed here for two separate nights, being away for three nights in-between. My first (single) room had bed space for three - all pushed together. The air-conditioning did not reduce the temperature probably because the controller was faulty. In fact the unit was heating the room to 28 degrees when it was only 24 degrees outside ! It was...

Compared to other hotels in Ghana, this one was quite good, even though not without problems. The facilities are fairly new, there is a swimming pool on the grounds, and the rooms were clean and air-conditioned (even though cramped). The food was all right. But we did run into all the familiar problems that we experienced in Ghanaian hotels. E.g.,... More
