So my review expands over three visits to the Lodge. I already have reviews on my personal blog but decided to post them here to help other holiday makers/travellers. Please note that these are 3 different reviews in 1 so things have changed over the years including the prices for the rooms and meals. 1st Visit: December 2013 (Stayed at... More

Please, rate it Yourself! We arrived for lunch, 26 December. Nice environment; lunch by the pool. Very nice setting. We ordered Five Cheeseburger, to make it simple and quick... 45 minutes later, have a look on what we received by the picture I took. Just by looking at it, I still wonder where in any other part of the world... More

My business associates booked me into this delightful hotel for one night while I was in the area on business. Thankfully I had a bit of time to explore the property and relax at the pool. The gardens are tranquil with only birds to break the silence! The food and service was excellent to match the setting in the garden.... More

I love the antique furniture's, the mature garden, the small and cosy spa, and the food. I stayed in one of the suite: grandiose colonial style. Sit in the garden at in the evening and listen to the birds... Well done to the management, and keep it this way!

Takoradi is home to some of Ghana's biggest oil developments. So many of the contractors live in hotels in-and-around Takoradi. Planter's is one of these, but I'm not sure how you would get any work dine while living here. The gardens are lush and beautiful, the pool area instantly relaxing, and the restaurant is delicious. Well worth a visit.

I have stayed in Planter's Lodge twice in 2013 and 2014 during my business trips to Takoradı, Ghana. Hotel is very nice, green, rooms are very big. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really poor, but dinners and room service were really good. Best option in Takoradi. It was nice experience.

The lush pristine greenery of Planter's lodge is so charming and disarming. The stress of the journey or day just melts away at the sight of it. The place is adorably quaint. The tiles and the style of the room furnishings tie into the theme well. I do wish the air conditioner and bathroom plumbing had not made ancient noises... More

This is the second time I've been to the planters, it's such a beautiful hotel, all staff are friendly and nothing is to much trouble for them, the breakfast is first class, there has been so much planning in the way the food is presented and more importantly what goes on your plate, this really is the best place in...
