“Very poor”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

The island experience was great but our Mahe accommodation was out of expectations for the paid rate.
Georgina's Cottage owner and management had a very arrogant and disrespectful attitude.
When we commented that the room was not what we had requested, the response was "If you don't like, leave"! Arguing on the 2 single beds which were also smelly, again we received the same response.
When the following morning we asked if there is anything else but eggs for breakfast, the attitude was again the same... "If you don't like and need breakfast variety, leave and go to Hilton"!
For sure the place is not value for money, and especially when you pay close or more than 100 EUR p/night you expect at least the basics.

My husband and I stayed at Georgina’s Cottage, a family run B&B, for five days of our honeymoon. In that occasion, we were offered a room with central terrace where to enjoy a bottle of fresh sparkling wine and the great Wednesday evening market food, very relaxing. The room had all comfort and the location of the B&B was perfect for us, just across the street we had the long stretch of Beau Vallon beach and a few meters from the bus stop to/from Victoria. Restaurants and shops at short walking distance. Eddy was very friendly with us, providing us with all help needed (what you can do in the island, where to go ...). I would recommend Georgina’s cottage to anyone.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the beach have a relaxing terrace

Really good location, but not the best. The beach is twenty meters across the road, but the sound of the ocean can be heard only at night when no cars drive.

The staff quite friendly, especially if from Mauritius.

Modern and bright rooms, but be prepared for the fact that Eddy too strongly suggest you "Upgrade" - move you into the old and run-down rooms. Well, if it does not spoil your mood from the guesthouse and recreation

I strongly recommend the excellent tour around the island under The Beatles songs with wonderful driver Marvin.

Stayed there for 6 days in August and we had a great time. Many thanks to Eddy for his kindness and help. Good location, very clean, very good breakfasts. The best reataurant ever La Pearl Noir ( good prices) and Kaz Zanana in Victoria-near to the bus stop ( only lunches). Worth to see Anse Major ( wear good shoes and avoid the flying fox which can bite you), Sunset beach, Port Launay.

Room Tip: we had big family room on the first floor ( number 4): 1 double bad, one single and 1 additional not...

After going all over the island whilst we were there we realised that by pure chance we had picked the best spot. Yes there are prettier beaches but none with bars and resteraunts. The guest house was very clean and comfortable with fridge coffee making facilities crockery cutlery and a microwave to use. The breakfast was good and the staff were exceptionally pleasant and helpful. I would certainly recommend it. The island overall though I do find very very expensive and cannot see that it warrants it.

Room Tip: The upstairs room no 4 is excellent

Me and my daughter stayed here on a diving holiday in December 2012. Eddy was most helpful and the breakfast service was great. We were on a diving trip and the room was spacious to cater for all the extra equipment we had.

Really a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room on the second floor. Enjoy your sun downer on the balcony, bliss!!!

We stayed in the room nº 4 (triple room with sea view). I am very satisfied with this guesthouse. Location is perfect - in front of Beau Vallon beach. The room was very spacious and clean.The guesthouse has all the facilities required for beach vacation, such as an external tap to clean your feet from sand, lines for drying clothes. The room has a nice large private terrace with a table and chairs - perfect spot for your evening glass of wine with ice cream. There are a lot of small shops and restaurants nearby. There is private parking. It is possible to book a car through the owners (our car was delivered to the jetty and returned in the guesthouse at no extra cost). Eddy is very friendly, informative and speaks perfect English (however, sometimes it is difficult to find him). Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with sea view on the second flow. Avoid 1st floor rooms - guests take breakfast on th...
