A friend's 50th surprise birthday party at the hotel was the basis for our bed and breakfast stay. A business trip in Accra followed immediately with a drive from London, in what can only be described as torrential rain, we were met with a warm and friendly welcome by Paul, the Manager, who took our bags and showed us to our room. He gave full details of the party, and reassured us that we had time for a well needed drink at the bar before joining the other guests. Giving us the list of whiskies, ales and lagers on offer, and tales of his time in London he left us to get ready. Our room was large, cosy, clean, with comfortable beds and curtains that actually closed. We had an en suite bathroom, also clean, with fluffy towels. A very busy bar, with a great atmosphere. Large delicious portions from a varied menu served by friendly and professional staff. The Manager came to tell us that he'd received the phone call that the birthday boy was on his way, such service! The following morning we came down to a well cooked, again large portion, breakfast served by friendly staff. All triffick!
