Good basic hotel at great location
Stayed at Coconut Grove Bridge House in the centre of Elmina town. Bustling street life, traditional fishing port, and old European castle in direct view from the terrace. Very kind staff, basic rooms with all amenities you can expect for the price. The added value is in the location. Do not go here for peace and quiet, but if you want to experience the daily life at the town of Elmina there is no better place. If you want to relax on the beach and have a swim in a pool, or have a more elaborate dinner, ride horses or play golf, you can go to the nearby Coconut Grove Beach resort. Staying at Bridge House gives you free access to all these amenities at the sister hotel. Staff is very friendly and there to assist. Everything is hassle-free.

Best location for experiencing Elmina
Excellent location for an overnight visit to UNESCO Heritage site Elmina Castle and its lovely and lively bustling fishing town. The room was large with impressive views of the castle and busy river outlet to the bay. Comfy bed and nice decor with great air conditioning (a must in May). Water was not consistent, but I'm not a fussy traveler. Dinner was delicious-fresh grilled fish caught just hours before and served to the superb people-watching patio adjacent to the town bridge. Locals line the bridge as the boats go out (in the wee hours) and as they come in. Light sleepers might want earplugs, but adventurers can go out and join in! Felt safe and comfortable as an older female traveler (altho with a lot of experience working in Africa). Will bring family here on a vacation soon!

A piece of history
Can't beat the location. Room was quite adequate. Leaking toilet issue was fixed right away. The fridge in the room did not seem to work but I didn't need it so that was fine. One day without hot water, otherwise nice amount of hot water and water pressure. Breakfast of eggs, toast, fruit, and coffee. Restaurant is quite good, I had lunch and dinner there twice. I would recommend sitting outside so that you can take in the daily life of the village as you enjoy your meal. Most of all, the staff couldn't be sweeter. Always checking to make sure everything was OK and ready to address any issue, should it arise. If you are in Elmina connect with Felix and take his walking tour to learn about the village as a whole, not just the castle. His office (ecotours Ghana) is next to the bookstore in the castle. You can also call him to set up a tour. His number is available at the front desk. I would stay again.

A beautifully tranquil but bustling town. As elsewhere in Ghana all smiling faces. Charming and caring hospitality.
