4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

My husband and I stayed here overnight while visiting Cape Coast Castle and Elmina Castle. The rooms and pool are comfortable and clean by U.S. and European standards. The place seems to be battling beach erosion, and the sea wall at the edge of the property is a little too high to allow actual beach access safely, but the views... More

My husband and I spent six months in Ghana for his work and made several trips to Cape Coast. We stayed here one weekend with a friend who came to visit us from the US. This place was pleasantly surprising after a couple previous trips to the area. The room was very large, clean, and new, and it opened to... More

My wife and our toddler spent a weekend here. Spacious, clean rooms opening out to a balcony that offered a lovely view of the ocean. Our hosts, Ben and Suzie were friendly and welcoming, alerting me ahead of our trip to the fact that we needed to take an alternative route (the Elmina Bridge was closed) and arranging a taxi...

I was staying next door at Stumble Inn on a school trip, we decided to go for lunch here- worst mistake! The service was awful, the food that turned up was disgusting, some food didn't turn up, it took 2hrs from when we ordered and they almost refused to refund us for the food that turned up. One example is... More

So sorry we were not able to give you a more satisfactory service. 25 students arriving unannounced on a quiet day, and ordering a la carte meals for simultaneous delivery, represented a challenge for the small staff team who were on duty. They tried to do their best, but they should have offered a more realistic delivery time, and advised... More

Is am an experienced traveller in Africa and this was the worst place I have been to. We were only eating so can not comment on the rooms but the food ordered took over two hours to arrive (some of it never came) was not as ordered and poor quality with meals advertised as beef and chicken being identical meat....

Great service from the management. Comfy rooms, good food. A fabulous pool and lovely surroundings. We liked it so much we stayed an extra night! The owner was really attentive and helped us a lot during our stay and all the staff were friendly. The price was incredibly cheap by European standards. It is a little ways out of Elmina... More

Situated on the coast with views of the historic Elmina Castle, this is a great location for the hotel. The staff are all generally very with friendly and helpful and will make every attempt to meet your needs. However service is still below par for this level of establishment The rooms were very good and compare well to other resorts.... More

We two arrived midweek during the rainy season(June). Resort directions and signage are excellent; we arrived promptly although a bit battered by the rough road access. Property is maintained to a high standard. Room was very tidy with well built furniture. We were on the top level in a twin bed room. The balcony overlooked the pool, the restaurant and... More

This is a nice hotel with friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were great, the best we experienced in Ghana - we were travelling around the country on a birding tour. The pool area and grounds are neat and tidy, but a bit too sterile. Ben was a gracious host and we had quick and perfect room service each day:... More

For anyone who is looking for a TOP spot in Ghana to spend your family holiday.....This is your place. Staff like James, Rose, Suma, Charles (poolman) and Ben have made us have a wonderfull stay. The fanstatic pool is partially shaded by palmtrees, which makes it good to swim with children. Rooms are large, the bed and A/C are good.... More
