It is generally, clean, completely secure and the staff are very friendly, helpful and trustworthy. The food is OK but nothing marvellous. The rooms are large, spartan and basic, but fridges, aircon... More

I stayed at Mariam's on a business trip for 10 days. The place has an overall local feeling and is run by very nice and friendly people. It is about 5 minutes walk from beautiful Lumley beach.

The shower had a good flow with hot water. Breakfast is good but it was difficult to get smaller portions. This hotel is recommended for a mid-range priced... More

Hotel Mariam, is a well established property located a stones throw from Lumley beach. Several improvements and renovations have been done over the past few years and the place is in ok shape. To me, it has a Sierra Leonean charm despite the service not being the best, at times even bordering rude or indifferent - This is the case... More
