The room was fairly clean, and the AC and fridge worked. The bed was giant with nice clean sheets. Breakfast was nice, but dinner wasn't that great as my fish (snapper) was quite dry. The bathroom could have been cleaner - think there was some fag ash on the windowsill and some cockroaches behind the mesh (between mesh and outer... More

I stayed here for one night and loved the proximity to the Elmina Castle. It is in a very busy area so if you need quiet this may not be for you. The restaurant was good and you can sit outdoors and see the fishing boats and get a great view of the castle. The staff was nice and extremely... More

My partner and I stayed here for a couple nights whilst travelling Ghana. We had a lovely time. The hotel is located right in the centre of Elmira opposite the castle. Which is lovely but can be a bit busy and full of locals wanting to sell you things We had just got off the plane and came straight here... More

It's a very nice place to stay if you want to stay right where everything happens. The busy fishermen sail by, the merchants passing by while we enjoy the activities and the views of the ocean and Elmina Castle. Friendly and helpful staff. Good opportunities to take a break at the pool at Coconut Beach ressort. We stayed there for... More

We stopped for lunch, not to spend the night. But it seemed like a clean place to rest, get out of the direct sun and refresh ourselves. The bathroom was clean, the drinks we had were nice and cold. We ate outside under a cover and had great views of people walking by. I had fried grouper, the best food... More

If you're just staying a night or maybe two in Elmina and are torn between this and its more expensive sister hotel a bit out of town (or similar) I'd actually recommend this as you really get to soak up the atmosphere of the town and it is perfectly located for watching the harbour and bustle of daily life. It... More

I didn't stay there, just had my lunch after touring the Elmina Castle. Lonely Planet guidebook said it's the best place to eat in town.. in fact it is about only place to eat in town. Because except for real local eatery places, there isn't any 'western style' place to eat in the centre of Elmina. You go much further... More

I stayed at the Bridge House for one night while visiting the Elmina and Cape Coast castles. The room was a bit dated, though clean and cozy enough with a mini-fridge. The A/C worked fine. Overall, it was a good value for the price. But if you like decent service or peaceful surroundings, you should think twice before staying here.... More

I arrived with a printout for a PRE-PAID room from booking.com or hotels.com and was told that we had no reservation. It was clear they were very unorganized. We were three women, and they showed us one dingy room, with one bed. After many phone conversations back and forth with a manager at the sister place - Coconut Grove Resort,... More
