I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Lovely reception but the hot shower was not working at all. If you are Looking for somewhere to lay your head after a long day of work go there. The food is not the best especially the breakfast. I only stayed here since it was already booked.

I stayed at Highgate hotel in Accra for about 10 days in July 2015. Even though the reception area is a bit dark and shabby, check in was prompt. It’s a shame that they still use manual receipts and all though. The size of the room, as well as that of the bathroom, was reasonable, although the room was old-fashioned... More

The visit was in April 2015 and i've selected the hotel due to its location and price. The hotel was already paid and originally the placed me in a room that had: old blood stain towels, dirty toilet seat and very noisy air conditioning. I have requested to change room in the beginning the offered me a executive upgrade and... More

Following another disastrous choice of establishment, I checked in to the Highgate Hotel late on a Sunday evening. The hotel itself seems fine, but it's the little things they need to brush up on like menu items not being available, TV channels not available etc. As it is Rugby World Cup, I was eager to catch up seeing as I...

The Highgate hotel looks good from the outside. It is centrally located. Has good rooms. There, that's all that is good about it. Where it seriously lacks is in Service. From the moment you enter to your departure, all the staff is worried about is the money!! The restaurant staff is the laziest of all. I asked them to get... More

I found Highgate Hotel a pleasant surprise - I only needed a room for a night and I found the room clean and functional. Don't expect satellite TV - it was at least not working the night I stayed there. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant is maybe not fine cuisine but the food is nice and affordable.

After spending an enjoyable few days at the Highgate back in 2010 I was looking forward to a return visit. Sadly this hotel seems to have gone backwards. The general appearance was tired, the shower was unreliable and the dining area seems much more cramped in its new arrangement. Staff were pleasant enough but there was a general feeling of... More

WIth friendly staff, imposing wood panelling decor and reasonably priced, this looked like a find. But the hotel lets itself down on the small details – no lamps in the rooms and shabby corners hinting at poor maintenance. Also lack of lifts to the three main floors could be a problem for some. Breakfast in the somewhat gloomy dining area was... More

I have stayed in the hotel twice, 2013 and 2014, and can say that they have problems with maintenance or rather lack of it. So the overall quality is pretty ok but decresing. Rooms are specious with comfortable beds while the menu in the restaurant is rather limited and service can take long.
