This was my second stay at this hotel, whilst on business trips to the. Western Region of Ghana, staying this time in a cottage rather than the main building. The cottage is essentially a suite with sitting room separate from the bedroom, a welcome change in a business hotel. The location is quiet and the surroundings attractive. These rooms are... More

Having been a regular for two years, I put up with the lacklustre service due to the quality of the fillet steaks. It is not unusual to wait one and a half hours for the food to be served. I was shocked today when I looked at the menu and seen that the cost of all food has increased by... More

I have been stopping in here for food once or twice a year going back over 14 years and it has never let me down and I always enjoyed the experience, the food and the service. Keep it up guys as the track record is now set.

Tried booking a one bedroom bungalow with living room. Was told two females or two males cannot share the same bed. I had thought living room sofa would make a bed. They said after considerable pressure that they could put a fold up bed in living room and charge us usd 50 extra per night. So although bungalow is for... More

I stayed at Planter's Lodge for 10 days in the summer. I had high hopes for this place, but this was soon quashed when I discovered that neither the WiFi or bedroom AC were working. Reception staff were unhelpful, but eventually I managed to switch rooms after being left waiting in the 'lobby' for an hour. The WiFi was intermittent... More

My food was lovely I had Thai fish and potato gratin cooked to perfection.My only gripe was our waitress for that evening was horrible. At first I thought it was just... More

Family run hotel, with excellent spa treatments. We spent a weekend there to get out if Accra and enjoyed every minute. The menu in the restaurant was quite restrictive for vegetarians, but after the first night I discovered that they were more than happy to amend any dish to cater for me. The lady in the spa was late despite... More

Excellent service. Best food I had eaten during my stay in Ghana. Without a doubt the obvious choice if staying in Takoradi. Even though there were renovations to the reception area on the go during stay I was surrounded by nothing but friendly faces. The poolside restaurant is a great area to escape the hustle around me. Absolute professionalism, only... More

I loved the serenity, the service and the greenery around. The staff were welcoming and very hospitable. Nice pool and a nicely manicured lawn. I love every single thing here and it offer me the tranquility i desired. I sure will visit again.
