Visit to Ghana always a joy.
Posted Apr 19, 2011
We have experience of the area around the hotel so chose this as we knew where we would be in Accra. The other two reasons for choosing it was the offer of transport to.from the airport and a swimming pool. The pool was a disappointment as the tiles around the waters edge were grease stained and had not been cleaned in a long time. Furthermore, the area had no sunshades although there was evidence of them being there in the past and the only seating was chairs, no sunloungers.
We were leaving on a Sunday and the hotel informed us that they could not get us to the airport as the one driver who worked Sundays was ill and it took a bit of persuading on our part to get them to hire and pay for a local taxi which would have cost them so little, having seen what they handed over to the driver.
Breakfast was OK but the same everyday (baked beans, omellette, toast with tea or coffee, fresh pineapple, cornflakes and fruit juice. A choice of egg styles would have been nice. At least they use proper milk, unlike most Ghanaian hotels we have encountered who use condensed milk.
Dinner was very expensive and the portions very small so we walked for about 20 minutes to a local restaurant who give much better choice and portions for less money.
