“average average average cant say anymore”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

have been here twice now, and still yet to meet couteous staff, i get looked at like a piece of muck on someones shoe, the porter hassles you for money every time i see him, i always go in with a smile to everyone i meet, yet as a paying guest in this hotel, all be it small stays , usually one day only, and thats one day too long in ,my opinion, i just wish i would get a smile off someone.. i wonder if it because im british, they are like this, some of my associates even got spoken down to as they did not eat, resulting in a slanging match at reception , this is because the company pays and allocates a meal for us, and one of my colleagues got abuse because he ate elsewhere, never across the world have i experienced this kind of behaviour from staff, on two seperate occasions now, the hotel is clean enough , the surrounding area is typical douala, i wouldnt want to venture out too far, and im far from impressed by the meat market going on down the bar of an evening, as a single male i was hassled by other female guests shall we call them plying their trade, the bar staff are civil, certainly not friendly just more interested in getting cash off you for the bar bill... business travellers yes for the location, but familys or holidayers or familys .. dont bother.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

The rooms are spacious and clean. Housekeeping staff excellent. Location is good. Staff is professional and friendly. The meals are very good and very reasonably priced. The sommelier is very knowledgable and his wines are a good variety and good range of prices. The pool is a nice way to cool off and the best cheese sandwich and chips at the outdoor grill/bar.

Room Tip: I would have asked for a room looking out over the front, but all rooms are pretty equal in location...
