It has a very good spa and a gym which was great for my morning work out. The rooms were luxurious and comfortable. This lovely... More

This Hotel has such potential, but sadly is being run by leading examples of Fawlty Towers 'management'... From check-in through to walking out disappointed, the farce ensued - I really couldn't believe that such a situation of ridicule was possible ! An empty Hotel with the best rooms being occupied by the Staff, upgrading rooms therefore meant that those available... More

Built in 1935 by the British Airforce, Planter's lodge is the best I've seen in the west so far. The lush green landscape sets the atmosphere for a peaceful relaxation. I love the architecture - the old structure remains well maintained and the rooms are well kept. The staff are just lovely. Ever ready to make sure your stay is... More

Very cosy and well run place.The staff was very attentive and the food was great.Would recommend the grouper and the calamari was very nicely spiced too. I only stayed for a night but will definitely return on future trips.No complaints whatsoever.

The previous review from Mukwera sums it up perfectly!! It's a stunning hotel that I would recommend anytime to anyone!! Only gripe is that the rooms are very small and one of the receptionists - Lindy(?) - nees to be taught how to treat customers. Well done Planters!! I will not stay anywhere else should I visit Takoradi again in... More

For Takoradi, Planters Lodge is almost synonymous with Captain Hooks; they have been a part of Takoradi for many years, akin to Jacks Cafe in Cassablanca. Staying at Planters Lodge is expensive, as is everywhere and everything in Takoradi. To put things in perspective, it is situated in an area where a house requiring extensive renovation, an intermittent power supply... More

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
