Hans Cottage was founded by a swiss man time ago. At some point in time, it was transferred to an african local owner. Only what´s left of the original investment is there, because its clear that no mantenance or any kind of refurbishment has been undertaken in ages. Decaying is the word. Everything is old, dirty,declining and worn down. Specially... More

There are plenty of places to stay in and around Cape Coast but this is a bit different! Hans Cottage Botel is situated around an artificial lake with crocodiles and islands full of birds, much of it built on stilts over the lake. There's a good choice of rooms - all the A/C were booked when I turned up but... More

I actually quite liked this accommodation; very basic as you would expect but the pool is nice, restaurant and it even has crocodiles which you can have a photo with for 1 Cedi. The food isn't great however and there's isn't too much else nearby. Beware that you need to turn the heat switch on in the bathroom for the... More

I did not stay in this hotel but it looked pretty nice from the outside and was the only establishment to offer an Internet connection. I went with a friend early in the morning last week, it was raining a little bit and very hot. The girl whom guioded us to the small tour, said it was the reason why... More

Stayed in one of the simple clean double rooms with hot showers. The breakfast was poor, cold by the time we got there and the restaurant in the evening served only average meals. Much of the menu unavailable. If you want to see the crocodiles then I'd suggest man ok Nguyen a visit fir this and staying elsewhere

i didnt get to see the hotel amenities, but took a tour to see the crocodiles and also the bird sanctuary, which was nice. it had a decent pool and restaurant to go and its a short walk from the ostrich farm, within driving distance of the monkey sanctuary and Kakum national park. Maybe next time

Stayed here for a school trip. I started out booked in the dorm room with my other classmates, but ended up getting my own room. The dorm room was hot and many of the fans didn't work. The bathroom was gross and the shower was outside. I was much happier with my double room, which was clean and efficient. The... More

There is little fear that Hans Botel will show up on anyone's list of best hotels. The rooms are small and plain, the food is fair to poor and the drinks watered down. However, until live crocodiles are allowed to wander freely among the guests at your nearby Hilton, Hans will have one over on them. You read that right.... More

Went here with work colleagues for lunch on a Sunday. The food was good but not spectacular. The service was OK too. What draws you to the place are the crocodiles in the pond by and around the restaurant. If you pay a bit, one of the staff will go and feed them. There is NO protection to keep the... More
