My friend and I paid a decent price for an 11 night stay here and we were given a really nice large living room space, which we weren't expecting. We had 2 tvs, 2 fridges (1 in the bedroom and 1 in the living room), microwave and toaster. The rooms were air conditioned.
Room: We stayed in the 'old' part of the hotel, and while the decor does look quite dated, it was comfortable and pleasant. There is a generator so lights are never out for more than a couple of minutes if there is a power cut. The best thing about our room was that we did not see one mosquito in there for the entire time we stayed. The rooms were cleaned thoroughly, daily.
I don't usually watch tv when I go on holiday, but I was able to keep up with the football scores here, which was great.
Staff: The staff were all very helpful and friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our needs (ie. going to buy credit for us or buying us orange juice when we requested it). They also helped us to arrange transport when we went to Cape Coast (with less than 24 hours notice) and gave us advice on places to visit and how to get there. As it is a small hotel, we got to speak to the owners directly and they were really welcoming. It's more of a homely atmosphere than that of a hotel. Frank, at the front desk deserves a pay rise- he works very hard.
Location: The hotel is only a few minutes walk from Spintex Road, from which you can get a taxi or tro tro, but they can call a taxi for you at the front desk if you don't want to walk.
Food: I'm a pescetarian and could eat the breakfast provided (apart from the sausage). My friend and I often woke up late and we were never denied breakfast after a certain time.
We also had an airport shuttle (to and from the airport), which was very useful.
I would recommend this hotel and if ever I visit Accra again I would stay here again.
