Good location, safe and very friendly staff. The internet is good despite occasional power cuts, they have a generator which kicks in quickly. Air-con in the room worked well. Rooms cleaned daily. Good food, especially the African dishes, would recommend the African buffet they run on Fridays! Many thanks to all the staff.

I stayed at this guest house for the second time. I had wifi 24 hours and although black-out was frequent in the evenings, back up power generator was immediately switched on. Luckily you can be guaranteed of hot water as I had problems with these basics on a weekend in one of the resorts in Kent. Really lovely tranquil environment... More

Have stayed her twice in the past two years and each time have had a great stay. Decent rooms, wifi, ac, hot water and pretty steady electricity - blackouts were common but never lasted for very long. Staff is very friendly and quickly responded to issues. Have not stayed anywhere else in Freetown but feel this is a great mid-range... More

I just moved here from the Hotobah which is going down hill. ( see separate review). It's delightful and considering the typically appalling standards in Freetown providing you are happy with shabby it's very comfortable. There was a wedding last night so they moved me to the annex, where the room is much nicer anyway. Wifi is the best I... More

We were in Freetown on business for three weeks and were pleasantly suprised. Large rooms, wi fi, good, bar and restaurant with fresh food (food hygeine can be an issue so was refreshing to find LACS), friendly staff. Central so easy to get to town. Meetings are catered for and prices reasonable. Hired taxi to get around. Would come back... More

A pretty average stay in Freetown for a high price, and yes, the wi-fi for the most part was strong and consistent, and when it wasn't, the front desk was somewhat responsive to helping me get it fixed. Rooms had generators so power was never off more than a few minutes at a time, but some parts of it (carpet)... More

We stayed a few blocks away from Lacs Villa and decided to pay a visit just to have a meal there, but also to check out options for future stay. From outside the tree cover is attractive, and gives a real ambient feel. When the gate was opened for us, we felt kind of intimidated by what we thought was... More

I've stayed at Lacs on a number of occasions and have a real love of the place. This was based on the staff and the great relationships they built with customers, though I know a large number of them are no longer there anymore, but that's a rather long and complicated story. The place itself is an old colonial style... More

Absolutely the best service and accommodation i have ever been to. I totally recommend this place. If you go Serria Leone this is the only place to stay.
