Comfortable hotel and lovely staffPosted Jan 6, 2013 on Hotels.com
I booked this hotel as it was close to the airport for my journey home so I wasn't sure what to expect. The hotel location was in the mountains so not really accessible for the beach, but as there was a pool I didn't mind. The hotel was clean and had good facilities, and the staff were all very nice and helpful.

Many pluses for small hotelPosted Sep 18, 2012
Pros: Staff and views from dining porch.
Cons: Barking dog one night.
Location: Had we known about the hilly road we might have avoided this one, but we would have missed a good experience.
The staff there were quite friendly and helpful. When our tour was rained out one day the manager offered us a ride into Victoria. Maria prepared a nice breakfast each monrning which was included - but not mentioned in the website we used. There was also a nice, but small pool, which was great for a dip after a long hot day. It is also a short walk to a bus stop and a nearby beach. Oh, there is also a nice view from the hotel. It was also easy to get acquainted with other guests while in the public areas checking your emails (free internet) or having breakfast or just enjoying the weather.

Very unsatisfactory experiencPosted Aug 30, 2012
Pros: The room was comfortable enough and the view was beautiful
Cons: The lack of running water an simple breakfast
Location: On a hill, nice view, close to the airport
Whilst the staff were pleasant, the manager was present only when time of payment came about, the one staff member was left to do everything in the guesthouse which I thought was unfair and bad management practice. The room was very simple and the water didn't work in any of the taps or shower, after a long flight this was disappointing. It did work in the evening. The premises are very simple and I felt it was expensive given the poor quality of the facilities, the wifi internet was not working and breakfast was a very simple toast with jam, coffee and fruit I would not recommended this guesthouse

A nice lodge near Mahe airportPosted Feb 6, 2012
Very nice lodge, located 20min from the airport, at the edges of the rainforest and 10min walk to a beach. The room was nice, clean and airconditioned. Linzi, the owner was very friendly and a good cook. She gave me a very good travel advise as i wanted to go to a place with no cars around. The place would be ideal for somebody who wants to stay close to the airport.

Terrible location. Cockroach problem. Beach subparPosted Dec 20, 2011 on Hotels.com
This place is not for you if you can’t drive, have mobility issues, hate creepy crawlies or if you want a location close to nice beaches. The staff here are very nice people. They will try and help you as much as possible. But that doesn’t change the fact the location is inconvenient and the place is crawling with insects. This is a last resort option if you absolutely cannot find (or afford) anywhere else. The Seychelles is very, very expensive for accommodation so I guess this cheap place fills a niche. However, I would not come back here. LOCATION – This place is well off the beaten path. Although only 15mins from the airport, it is practically in the rainforest and getting anywhere else on the Island is not easy. If you look on Google Maps, it seems like it is only a short walk to the beach. However, that short walk is down a VERY steep incline. We’re talking 70 degrees, and waking down there I was afraid that if I lost my footing I would fall all the way to the bottom. Walking up was one of the most painful experiences of my life and thanks to the humidity it looked like I had just had a shower by the time I got to the top. Having a car is an absolute must if you decide to stay here but only if you are comfortable with steep mountain driving. Locally, there is absolutely NOTHING of interest. Of all the Seychelles beaches I’ve seen this is one of the least interesting. There are a few shops around and they all seem to be frequented by drunks buying liquor, which made me worry about my safety. These shops are not cheap either so don’t think you will get bargains here. FACILITY – The building itself is quite small. There is a communal TV area, a pool room and an outside terrace where you can sit and stare at the sea over the rainforest canopy. Breakfast is included which was nice, simple and tasty. Dinner costs 15 Euros and was fine if you like Creole cooking. Wifi is free – you need to ask for the code - and is normally OK for basic surfing, but it often goes down too so don’t expect it to be available 24/7. BEDROOM – The bedroom I got was a good size. Lots of drawers and some cupboard space. They give you a fridge, kettle and a large fan. There’s also a ceiling fan and decent aircon unit. The aircon is useful as it keeps out a lot of the insects. Even so, I did wake up to find ants crawling over my bed and on my pillows. Not a nice experience. BATHROOM – It’s a good size. The fittings are new and modern. They supply you with hand soap and that’s it, so you need to bring your own toiletries if you decide to stay here. Don’t be surprised to see COCKROACHES, ants and flying insects when you open your bathroom door. Water pressure is strong. Floor is crawling with ants. Ceiling is low so if you are tall you will probably bang your head repeatedly when using the WC. BALCONY – You get a nice balcony with your room, which has a couple of leathery deckchairs and a view of either the mountainside or the sea. The balcony is carpeted which I found a bit strange as it must get very damp during the rainy season.
