I stayed here for 3 nights for a very quick business trip. I chose the hotel because it was close to the Victoria downtown, where my meetings were based. SERVICE: I don't think I've every stayed anywhere where I've had worse service. The staff were completely disinterested, and bordering on passive aggressive when you asked for anything. I arrived at... More

Stayed here for a business trip due to location near the airport and Eden Island. We spent most of our time on Eden Island, but every minute in this hotel was below average. Staff was unhelpful and indifferent. Breakfast buffet was not good, but expensive. Location does not have a beach, and it's probably unsafe to walk around at night.... More

This hotel is perfectly positioned, close to the airport, so it was useful for one night before an early morning flight. That's about as good as it gets. The staff were terrible, disinterested and unhelpful. The rooms were ok but leaking air conditioning and torn pillowcases - for over 460 Euro per night!!! Find a better alternative.

Located just a stone's throw from the airport, The Wharf is the ideal stopover point for those who have - usually - endured a long flight, and who are going off to one of the outer islands the following day. Rooms large, clean, and comfortable. Very stylish. Bathroom excellent (a good barometer of any island hotel !) We arrived late... More

The hotel location and rooms are beautiful looking but the staff and the service they provide are the worse I've ever experienced. We had two rooms at the hotel and both had issues with them. One of the rooms the door wouldn't open properly and their was no kettle. The second rooms had no phone and in both the rooms... More

I stayed for one night whilst on a business trip. Please be aware that this is not a hotel suitable for a beach holiday but perfectly OK for a short stay. Nice location close to restaurants and shopping. I was pleasantly suprised with the room, it was modern, spotlessly clean and had a nice balcony overlooking the marina. Service was... More

We stayed for two nights after spending time on Praslin. The building is new and in a good location, I’d recommend a hire car to get around but it’s a great location to get around the island. The hotel was more than double what we had paid for on Praslin so even though it was nice it was slightly below... More

Let me start off by saying that this is my first negative review I have written on tripadvisor. As an avid traveler with more hotel stays every year then I can count, all over the world, this is by far my worst experience at a hotel! The property itself is nice and at first the rooms seemed to be rather... More

The service definitely need to be improved. Stayed in the Seychelles for 12 days, and this hotel was absolutely not price worthy and a huge disappointment. Staff not serviceminded, the room below average standard, food not worth the money and the restaurant staff had a bad attitude. If you have the opportunity to choose another hotel - do so!

We stayed at the Wharf for one night. The property is stunning, with an amazing marina view and gorgeous swimming pool. My favorite thing of all was the room. Although not very large, the double bed is by far the most comfortable thing my head has ever laid on!! The mattress, pillows and duvets are heavenly! The bathroom is also... More
