Unlike some hotels in The Gambia which are miles from anything those on a B & B basis will find plenty of choice. The standard rooms are... More

Have just come back from a relaxing week in Gambia . I desperately needed some sun and rest and this trip ticked all the boxes .

We have visited many times over the last 7/8 years and continue to love the gardens and the location. Its not a European 5 star standard hotel by any means. The rooms are slowly being improved with new air con units, new TV's and painting taking place. The breakfast is fine but in comparison to other hotels around the world... More

A brief - friendly staff, clean, gorgeous setting, relaxing, cheap, great... More

We weren't sure what to expect from The Gambia but were pleasantly surprised. The hotel was very nice, the grounds lovely with monkeys and 60 different species of birds over our one week holiday. We had upgraded before we arrived to a Garden Suite which I am glad we did because the standard or economy rooms are in the car... More
