Stopped for lunch as this was the nearest restaurant to the Aburi Botanical Gardens. The hotel claims it is a recreational club which is not put on the board outside. Therefore they charge a 30 Cedi cover charge per person which can be redeemed against food and drink consumed on the property. One has to buy everything there including water... More

The staff were not proactive and required some more training. The layout of the grounds and the views are breathtaking. The menu is very limited and pricey. Pool was well kept its sad the towel had seen too much washing time.

We only wanted to eat lunch there. Right upon entering the bar area, we were stopped and asked if we were members. Ah, well, no? We were then informed that we would need to pay 30Cedis each in order to set foot into the place. After abit of a grumble, our men paid up while my friend and I went... More

Spent two wonderful nights in Hillburi. The one thing that hits you as soon as you arrive is Customer Service!! Amazing! We arrived, had our bags taken inside, got a complementary free drink as we waited for our room, got our bags carried to room which already had the AC on which was a nice touch. The rooms themselves are... More

My first thought as the door opened to our room was "urm"?? --It was a little confusing until the window curtains in the bedroom gave way to the forested mountain view--almost artistic and certainly breathtaking. The theme of the whole place--bedrooms, garden etc reminded me so much of the "woody" theme in so many of the "Middle Earth" movies I... More

Three things take me to hillburi.The Spanish styled villa, the hill view and the building colour paint combination- orange and green. Hillburi is a lovely and ideal place for relaxation.one of those places you might wanna take a loved one to, to create an impression on purpose. The downside is the food prices. In my opinion, it is highly overpriced... More

Just spent another 3 days here... Still my favourite place to get away... Very nice and quiet; friendly and polite staff, lovely views, very very clean, good food, value for money, and now they have wifi in the rooms! I didn't feel 'trapped' when I needed to go online to sort stuff out. Only but is they don't accept card... More

I finally got to visit this infamous hotel/ restaurant. First impressions were pretty impressive... Amazing location out in the hills above Accra, with stunning gardens and views. I went with my wife and another couple for a quiet drink and late lunch. The service was quick and responsive but I will note it lacked that certain authenticity that other places... More

this is a superbly located meticulously maintained hotel. the view from the pool is excellent ! nice garden (wish the space would been larger), courteous staffs! but sad, it's sometimes spoiled by the gay guests who come in to spend time at the lovely lawns, free of cost, and often spoil the resident's leisure holiday time..Day Guests should NOT be...

It is always sad that a place with such a beautiful view and good amenities is so often spoiled by the people working there. Today we drove up the mountain to visit the botanical gardens and visited Hillburi on the way back. The plan was to have something to drink at the pool and take in the view, but we... More
