Though called a hotel the Bel Air, with just 7 rooms, has the relaxed atmosphere of a guest house. Florence keeps the rooms immaculate; Teo is always around to help your stay go smoothly. Walking into Victoria is easy, but I needed a taxi to get back - up the hill! However, the taxi is cheap. Otherwise I used the... More

Have been to stay at Hotel Bel Air four times over the last three years for business. In August 2014, I was very impressed by the beautiful renovations which had taken place since my last visit in 2012. Roland, Natasha and family are warm and friendly, and always happy to help. It was a lovely place to return to after... More

Despite the fact that the room had been booked and paid months ahead, when we arrive it was already occupied by somebody else and no other rooms were available. The owner was very rude, making up reasons that didn't make any sense. For him it was "our fault". At the end we had to stay in a guest house far... More

Went to Seychelles for a 4 days business trip and had the hotel booked by a friend. I was pleasantly surprised by the newly renovated and comfortable setting. Lovely upstairs balcony overlooking Victoria and the harbor was the best place to be after a full day in meetings and site visits. The hotel is conveniently located only 10 mins walk... More

Upon arrival to Bel Air guesthouse, I realized I had the wrong set of bills to pay my taxi driver (they never seem to have change, do they, despite being end of the day). Roland came out and paid the driver, saying we could settle up later- that was great service! guesthouse is great, renovated and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate;... More

Roland, Natasha, my sincere thanks for making my stay in Victoria a comfortable, pleasant experience. On arriving in Seychelles I found the passport control, baggage collection and customs to be extremely easy and efficient and I was outside within 15 minutes of landing. I was however greeted with the most appalling service attitude (from Avis) that I have ever encountered... More

Enjoyed our stay at Bel Air while in Victoria, easy to get to town on bus or walking. We had a large airy room with A/C. Owner was especially helpful & knowledgeable about the islands. Very good breakfast. Reasonable rates & car rental on the property. Lovely upstairs balcony overlooking Victoria and the harbor.

I've never written a review for a hotel before, but after reading the two negatives for this place, I feel I need to put some balance back. I've stayed here twice now, March 07 and Dec 08. If I was returning to the Seychelles, then this would be my base on Mahe. The owners are charming and helpful people and... More

We were forced to use this "hotel" when our flight from the Seychelles was delayed. The airport booked it. The owner is friendly but the "hotel" is run down, There were insects in our room, and outside the room we spotted at least 2 cockroaches with various wildlife, lizards etc. A good place to stay if you like interacting with...

Hotel Bel Air - is NOT a Hotel, as I can't even rate what class this is. Maybe I''ll give 1 star for it. It looks more like a rundown family home with lots of old rooms rented out. So be aware! This is NOT a real Hotel, plus the photos you see on their website isa completely ilusion, the... More
