This is probably the best hotel in Takoradi - lush grounds, good pool and comfortable rooms. However the bed is much too short and I am not a giant! I was in the two room lodge and the a/c in the bedroom only just about covered the other room. The service was good but menu choices were not always there.... More

Takoradi has range of hotels, but Planters is the nicest if you want quiet evenings, there is no loud bar, great poolside for a drink and dinner. Food is of a very high standard, some of the best I have had in Ghana, you do have to wait. Which includes the coffee shop for basic sandwich as they have to... More

This was my first time in this hotel and it won't be my last time. Excellent level of service and staff very friendly. Staff should be more welcoming during breakfast especially when their managers are around. None of the breakfast bothered to welcome you yet they had time for their Managers when they came for breakfast. Overall experience during my... More

A great boutique hotel for leisure and business in Tokaradi. Excellent service, stunning gardens and pool , comfortable rooms and friendly staff. Delightful coffee bar for cake and cuppachinos. Spa treatments are a real treat especially the honey and chocolate scrub.

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.
