“Adequate for one night”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

We stayed at this hotel for one night during a birding tour of Ghana. It is rather tired and run-down. The restaurant is tiny and dark, service friendly but pretty basic food, even for Ghana standards. The room was clean but the bed was rock hard, which was a problem for me. As a stopover, it is just barely adequate.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2014

We stayed here on two separate nights, both before and after retuning from Mole. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. First time we were here the pool was sort of greenish. On our return from Mole it is nice and clear. Only bar is at the pool and service was very slow. AC worked, but not very well. Water pressure in the shower was low and the water tepid. Restaurant was okay

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

We stayed here for two separate nights, being away for three nights in-between. My first (single) room had bed space for three - all pushed together. The air-conditioning did not reduce the temperature probably because the controller was faulty. In fact the unit was heating the room to 28 degrees when it was only 24 degrees outside ! It was like sleeping in a sauna. On the second occasion I was awake enough to ask them to show me that the air-conditioning actually worked and could be controlled before I even thought about unpacking, having a shower etc.

The location is good on the oiutskirts of Kumasi and is quiet at night. The bed was comfortable and the service was slow but friendly.

Room Tip: Ask them to show you that the air-conditioning actually works and can be controlled before you think...

Compared to other hotels in Ghana, this one was quite good, even though not without problems. The facilities are fairly new, there is a swimming pool on the grounds, and the rooms were clean and air-conditioned (even though cramped). The food was all right. But we did run into all the familiar problems that we experienced in Ghanaian hotels. E.g., the shower had little water pressure. The internet existed but only seemed to work for a few minutes every several hours (even in the lobby). The beds had no blankets, but they did bring them when we asked for them. The restaurant is very small and service was VERY slow and generally poor (e.g., they had no more juice, of any kind, when we had breakfast; they had only instant coffee; they had one jar of jam for the whole restaurant that people sitting at different tables had to pass back and forth; and so on). But, again, considering that this is Kumasi, it's not a bad place to stay, and I would probably consider staying here again.
