Lovely lunch all very tasty and very fresh. The service was excellent and the hotel is beautiful, very clean and charmy. We couldnt ask for more in Takoradi. Definitely a great place for both business and family staying.

When ever you visit Sekondi -Takoradi, Planters Lodge's restaurant has to be one of the places you must visit especially for lunch the food is well presented and is very tasty. It takes a little bit of time for you to be served but once the food is served the wait is worth it.

We use the chalets for our senior executives and the garden rooms for junior staff. The hotel is very well maintained and even though it has history and...
