The guesthouse is located in beautiful colonial house. Comfortable rooms with fresh flowers and comfortable beds. Friendly managers for small fee let us check out later. Location can't be better. Just 50 m to the beach. A lot of restaurants, shop everything in the walking distance

Let me start by just saying how lucky I was I got to stay here! The hotel is not luxury, it is a basic accommodation that includes a lovely and filling breakfast. So it is a budget accommodation. The air conditioning could definitely use some work, but the wifi was fantastic!! Of all the places I stayed in Seychelles (the others being somewhat fancier), this was the only location where the internet was good and clear. The reason I surmised that this was one of the best places to stay was because of how central it was to EVERYTHING! Literally right across the street is one of the best beach restaurants/bars in Beau Vallon, Beach Shack. The sunsets, music, and vibe was amazing! To the right of the guesthouse is a really good eatery, La Dolce Vita. To the left of the guesthouse is the bus stop heading to the south of the island - diagonal is the bus stop heading to the north of the island. Two other well-known restaurants/bars are literally about a 5- 7 minute walk- Baobab Pizzaria, and Boathouse. The covid testing clinic is inside the Boathouse restaurant, so you could quickly and easily get a rapid or PCR test. There is a little strip of vendors that is also within walking distance, and that is on top of the other great restaurants that line the street. I also loved that you could catch live music anywhere nearby, or get a local fisherman to grill his catch of the day for you! Everyone is so friendly. But the best part, Beau Vallon Beach is LITERALLY across the street. You don't realize just how lucky you'd be to stay here. Haha

Georgina is by far the best host of the four we used during our visite to Seychelles. All the staff made us feel welcome and provided top service. Hopefully we will return to Seychelles and have the pleasure of staying at this little pearl of an property.

Spent a night following a cruise of The Seychelles. Charming, small B+B. We had a large room with balcony overlooking the ocean across the road. Spotless and clean, bed very comfortable, breakfast excellent. Very good value for the price. Fun beach bar across the road, great location for a short stay.

Georginas had everything we wanted like good wifi, breakfast, and right across the street from the beach, but we didn't expect the host to be so friendly and helpful in helping us get to our next destination. She also gave great advice for shopping and eating. We enjoyed eating pizza while watching the sunset just a short walk from georginas and a good ice cream shop is right next door. Breakfast here was also better than expected with lots of good fresh fruit!

An amazing place, friendly staff and a great location. Georgina's Cottage has a homey feeling that other brand names can't provide. It's like have a vacation at home away from home! I would highly recommend this place without a doubt!

I stayed here for a night in September and 3 nights in October. They have a delicious breakfast with seasonal fruit, toast, and eggs. It is right across the street from Beau Vallon and a great little bar called the Beach Shak. Walking distance from plenty of great restaurants and shops. Georgina is also very friendly, easy to talk to and makes herself available daily. Also close to many Dive Shops in the area. Would definitely stay here again!

Lovely people and great location! In the mornings breakfast would be seasonal fruit, eggs, toast and excellent coffee - served with a smile. We booked a room with a balcony and after a day out we would sit there and watch the birds and the sunset on the beach across the road. It is near restaurants (we liked the Boat House and the Baobab Pizzeria). It is also close to a pedestrian walk where there are stalls selling street food, day trips and odds and sods. We liked Mervin for the day trips - he is friendly and gave the best price. Mervin is in a wheelchair because of a diving accident but he hopes to walk again with therapy. We rented beach chairs across the Boat House just up the road from Georgina's and the chappie there watched our things. The beach is clean and the sea is pristine - lovely for swimming. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer!

What can I say, so glad we booked Georgina's. We were celebrating our 25th and when arrived Gina had flowers and a bottle of bubbly in the room. Gina was very welcoming and was very accommodating as we were on standby flights. We had booked for 5 nights but loved it so much we stayed an extra 2 nights. The rooms were very clean and spacious with excellent wifi. Also a fridge which was very handy. The balcony looked onto the beach and shak bar. The bus stops are outside the front. We did a lot of bussing around the island, 7 rupee to get anywhere. I recommend the bus to get get around, a fantastic if somewhat scary experience on narrow mountain passes. Had some good chats with the locals. Recommend going to Victoria, botanical gardens, Port Launat and the north of the island. Breakfast was lovely, tea/coffee, toast, fruit juice, selection of fruits, eggs anyway you wanted them. Shops and restaurants within minutes. Gina provides a flashlight to walk at night. Everybody walks on the road but your only on it for about 200m. Try the local BBQ's on the beach front, we ate most days there as the restaurants can be quite expensive. The pizza restaurant is excellent. The shak bar across the road is excellent. Stephen does a mean mojito and island rum punch. Lively spot. The Boathouse down the road is also good. Lovely long sandy beach across the road. Overall, having travelled around the island, Georgina's in Beau Vallon is the best location on the island. Aside from the excellent accommodation, it's location is perfect for everything that is in Beau Vallon, and the perfect base for touring the island. We were not flying back till midnight but Gina held our luggage for the day and she has a shower room to shower before we left for the airport. She also organised the taxi. Overall a wonderful stay with a great host and hopefully we will be back again to stay with Gina.
