If you ask your local customer for a recommendation, they're going to suggest the Golden Tulip or the Holiday Inn, both of which are near the airport and both of which charge too much for what they are. They suggest those because that's what they know. When you say you're staying at the Highgate, they'll ask how to get there. But the Highgate is the place for a business stay. There's no pool, no gym and no beach, so it might not be so good if you're looking for a resort, but for business it's tops.
The rates are reasonable. The food is good (don't leave without eating the grouper cassserole). The rooms are spacious and clean. There's lashings of hot water (as long as you remember to press the Water Heater switch). Broadband is free, and always on. When there's a power cut, the generator kicks in almost instantaneously.
But the real high point is the staff. Any hotel can have willing staff. What the Highgate has is well trained, willing staff. And, when you have a problem (as I did -- this is West Africa, remember), they go the extra mile to solve it for you.
I've already booked my return stay in August. I travel alone, I travel on business and I wouldn't stay anywhere else.
