I have stayed in the hotel twice, 2013 and 2014, and can say that they have problems with maintenance or rather lack of it. So the overall quality is pretty ok but decresing. Rooms are specious with comfortable beds while the menu in the restaurant is rather limited and service can take long.

This hotel is located in Asylum Down, near Ring Road Central and Kanda High Road. Rate for a single room is 400 cedis + breakfast (20 cedis for an English one). Rooms are fine (beds, equipment, AC), despite mine was not properly cleaned when I came in, and was not well maintained (bathroom, windows). Wifi worked properly. No elevator and... More

I stayed in this hotel while on business trip on March 2014. To be plain, its a just a basic hotel, only for those on "budget". Don't visit with any high expectations. The staff are really trying to help when you have a problem.I got changed rooms when the aircon failed in the middle of the stay. They don't even... More

I stayed at the Highgate over a long period of time for business and found it comfortable and accommodating enough for my travel style. When traveling on business I usually just sleep at the hotel and spend most of the time out & about. Therefore, I only want a comfortable and clean hotel room with friendly and helpful staff. The...

Highgate is a good business hotel in Accra. I stayed here for a period of just over 3 weeks and it was perfectly comfortable. What works well: the rooms are basic and the beds are large and comfortable. The rooms are very clean and air-conditioners work well. The staff are super friendly and ready to help. They can get you... More

The hotel staff was pleasant and accommodating. The room was simple, comfortable, and clean. There are no elevators, but the bellman carried up my suitcase. I could not get internet in my room which was a problem as I was there on business. The adjoining pub/restaurant was pleasant and comfortable. The food was ok. This is where I was able... More

It was a bit Marie Celeste - no-one else eating, drinking, or apparently even staying there .... So the staff are unoccupied and a bit despondent, although the reception staff are very helpful. Rooms are fine - but Accra generally is expensive for what is on offer, and the Highgate has no pool, so should be cheaper!! Odd experience with... More

The hotel is good compared with Accra hotels. The AC is good, the internet is good too and breakfast is ok too. The tank in the bathroom makes some noise every now and the bathroom could be maintained better.

Free internet access, free airport pick-up and drop-off, breakfast included. Personel is very nice and warmely welcomes me when I'm back. Cheaper than other options in Accra.

This hotel was good for business, with its own parking area. It is located close enough to government offices as to be a good location. The food is average to below average. If you want a mixed drink, you may have to instruct the bartender how to make what you want.
