“Jan 2005 - Rooms let it down could have been better !!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2005

On Business, not vacation, which must apply to 95% of vistors staying here, the Hotel public areas Bar, Restaurant and pool area very presentable and very cool in the hot, humid climate, small Gym Ok. On the swimming Pool - would have liked to see the pool filters seeing more action as water during evening swim was quite a bit murky.
Also don't wait until your hungry or thirtsy to order, service is painfully slow even with an abundance of waiters/waitresses (well GMT here means
Ghanian maybe time...!!) Food though reasonably priced and edible, room standard comfortable and typical of this chain. Although my non smoking room still had a smell of the local small, strong "cigars" even with 2 air freshner sprays a day from houskeeping.
Evening entertainment quite varied, some interesting sights and delights for sure in and around the hotel....!!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2004

We spent four nights here in April 2002. Good location for the airport, but it was a bit of a letdown after staying at the La Palm. Our room was ok generally and had a partial pool view. Grounds had lots of lovely trees. Wide lobby with shops was good for meeting people, and meals were quite good. There was a young man who played the piano at dinner and he was fantastic! Did not get to use the pool so can't say. Overall it felt like a hotel for business (and short stays) rather than leisure. There was a handy supermarket just across the road. However, we needed to rent a car and chauffeur as the hotel is too far from anywhere else tourists would like to see.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2004

We stayed one night in January 2004 (before catching our return flight to London) and ate dinner there one night in December 2003 (while staying at the Novotel). The hotel is well situated for the airport and there is a free shuttle, but it is a long way from either the beach, business areas, or the restaurant district. It has a huge entrance hall, with bars and suitable seating for meeting and greeting friends. Rooms were more comfortable than at the Novotel. We found the restaurant served interesting meals, with a good breakfast choice. The business centre had about 10 internet linked PCs and was open most times when we wanted it. The pool is modest size but on both afternoons we were there the surrounds were taken for private parties. Effectively the pool was out of bounds. But for its location, I would choose the Golden Tulip over the Novotel for my next business visit.
