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.

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

At GHC70 (about USD37), the CocoNut Grove BridgeHouse is the place to be. Clean Rooms, Hot shower (you may have to tell Naa in the Reception to direct 'Old Soldier' to turn on the water mains.

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

Worst food ever. Fish so dry and tasteless that you better eat wet cardboard. French fries ok. Sausage looks like plastic, but the plastic probably would taste better. Waited more the one hour for the food. Better find your food in one of the street places. Very dissatisfied. Thought a hotel chain like this would keep a higher standard.

The price is moderate, the location superb, the whole experience ok. It was fine for 2 nights, I'm glad we didn't have more time booked. The staff were impassive and seemed sunk in depression, very difficult to raise a smile, but they did sort things out quickly. We turned up with a 3rd person (when we had booked for 2)... More
