This our 8th stay in Ngala Lodge. We are never disappointed with the quality. The staff are very friendly and willing to help. The surrounding gardens, the location of the small beach and the accommodation are very attractive. Ngala has a uniqueness which is rare, as soon as we arrived we settled into a stress free environment.
We were saddened by the news that Wilma the manager had died suddenly on 13th January we were really shocked, the staff were obviously sad but they conducted their roles in a very very professional manner.
There is a new Manageress from Belgium and she is very hardworking and keen to continue the excellent reputation of the Hotel.
The food was amazing and very very good value for money. Jonathan, the new chef, is a seriously good chef and we were delighted eith his menues.
All in all, our stay was very enjoyable and we will return as soon as. This boutique hotel is not suitable for those with mobility disabilities. If you do walk out to explore you may get a bit of hassle from some locals (asking for money etc), but do not let this put you off, just be firm. You are safe in the Gambia and the majority of people a very friendly and helpful;
