Wow, a right little gem, the food is delightful, the rooms are clean, a pool which asks for no drowning, a lovely little place tucked away, something unexpected. Live music on the evenings, and the chance to go in the pedalo on the water. The crocs are usually out in the morning to brighten up breakfast time, but probably just... More

The location of the hotel is extraordinary, above a crocodile pool. You can have your breakfast while these modern dinos are swimming around or basking in the sun. The rooms are basic but clean and I can't complain about the service the staff gave. The food they serve can do better, but when you don't like it you can feed... More

I've stayed there twice now--Once in 2010 and again in December 2013. I love that it feels so isolated and how there are so many birds near/on the property. Amazing Weaver Birds who actually weave enclosed nests. On the 2nd floor of the restaurant you can almost touch them. Egrets too are in all the trees. I love the rambling... More

We have just visited Ghana again. The country is wonderful and the people even more amazing. On this trip however we chose to stay at Hans Cottage Botel in Cape Coast as we've done on an earlier trip to Ghana. Among many other moderately priced hotels, we continued to choose Hans Cottage, because of its location and it's easy access... More

Remembering that you are in Ghana and the poverty can be overwhelming, perhaps by Ghanaian standards this might be considered a better quality place. But by western standards, it is indescribably atrocious, run down and filthy and the alligators circulating only add to the horror show. We did not stay here and only ate (barely) thank god. My advise: Don't... More

We called in here after the canopy walk in the national park. More for a cold drink than for a view of the crocodiles. We felt unwelcome by the aggressive staff that stared at us. One member of staff was convinced that I had been there 10 years before and treated me in a sinister way. Staring at me, arms... More

4 nights, 4 of us in the hostel with shared shower facilities located outside our room. 2 cockroaches in my bed, a lingering and sharp smell coming from the two WCs in our room, the shower murky. The place has seen better days and is in a rather run-down state. Staff was rude and had a go at us a... More

The best thing about this hotel is the wildlife. You're away from the husstle of Cape Coast and can spot crocodile in the water and brightly coloured birds weaving nests whilst you eat breakfast. It's also not far from Kakum National Park and there are always taxies outside the hotel waiting to take you so you never have to wait... More

The botele is fine. It's a little run-down, but not dirty or gross. We had a reservation with 3 rooms and when we arrived, they moved us into this nice little 2 bedroom house at the end of the property. They said they would move a bed (along with towels and blankets for us) into one of the rooms while... More

The location of this hotel is excellent as a hideout from all the hustle and bustle but the facilities are poor and has not been properly maintained. I was there with my wife on our 1st anniversary and looking at the pictures we saw on the website and what we saw in reality we had to do the proverbial double-take.... More
