We have holidayed in Gambia 6 times, and stayed at this hotel twice. It,s a lovely little hotel, with great gardens, a lovely ambience. The hotel staff are fab.
. We had a family of monkeys visit us every day, even caught one of the youngsters spying through the window of our room to see if we were there.
The rooms are basic, and I am afraid are starting to look a bit shoddy...the walls are a bit grimey and could do with a lick of paint, as well as some repairs.
They are going to start losing points and tourists if they don't start maintaining the rooms .
The breakfast as most people have commented is rubbish, so I didn't even bother.
Tip: Dont bother getting your money exchanged in the UK, as there is a money exchange right next door to the hotel, on your right.
