The hotel overlooks the dam -- but is some distance from it. It is on a hill with a good view. The rooms are a bit shabby but clean and comfortable. The one odd thing was that it was not possible to turn of the entry and bathroom lights; the only option was to remove the key so that there... More

I have been going to Volta Hotel quite often with my family. It has good comfortable rooms and a great compound. The food served is good but nothing exceptional. It gets packed on holidays though, and when it does their service is slow. I would say they are quite flexible and helpful. Service is decent for Ghanaian standards. Major negatives... More

Awful service bordering on nakedly hostile from front desk staff. The hotel itself is very dated but seemed clean enough while the grounds of the hotel are very well maintained. The views are good and the food is local fare. Don't expect much and you won't be too disappointed.

Stayed over for our honeymoon. Apart from a few problems with the AC on the first night we were properly compensated with a very nice and spacious suite the following morning. We also enjoyed the cruise on the volta river. The weather was perfect out there.

The hotel provides a perfect view of the spectacular Lake Volta, world's largest man-made lake, as well as the Akosombo dam. Nice food. I took nicely made Tilapia fish. They also serve other continental and Ghanian delicacies. Smooth road to Accra which is about one and a half hour drive. Good experience

We were very pleased at the service and cleanliness of this hotel. Turning on the lights and other electrical appliances was a bit confusing, and it wasn't stated in the room information. But, a call to the front desk got quick service.

We came to the Volta Hotel somewhat by accident after a most unpleasant experience at Afrikiko. Our room was small, but not uncomfortably so with a balcony & nice view of the river. The water was nice & hot. The air conditioner worked wonderfully well so that we had two good night's sleep. Although the breakfasts were quite good, the... More

The staff are friendley, rates are reasonable and food is good. The hotel itself is clean and the scenary overlooking the Volta lake is awesome. One downside is the rooms are slightly cramped so great for short trips. The siwmming pool was being renovated but lloks very promising.

If you stay long enough to enjoy the view, this hotel is just fine. The service is slow but very friendly. The restaurant offers a good selection but the waiters can't handle large orders well. The rooms are adequate and quite dated. The hotel can't accommodate special request.
