Rooms are old; location is wonderful
Can't beat the location. The castle is a 3 minute walk across the bridge that gives you a great view of the fascinating fishing harbor. The hotel building is old and attractively made of stone. The inside was a little old too. The first night I was there the water pressure on was a trickle although that was remedied the next day. Staff was friendly and helpful although not always around. Meals were good. Breakfast cane with generous sliced fruit. The dinner menu included Ghanaian dishes. I favored the Black Star over the red red Somewhat of a PIA was a hustler/guide in the lobby. Why do they let him be there? None of the liabilities were significant enough to outweigh the advantage of the location. This will be even more so when the upgraded deck is completed.

Not bad for a night or two...
Hotel is in s great location to the slave trade castle literally next door to it. It’s an older building so definitely some renovations are needed. Room was decent no hot water or shower curtain in our bathroom but we manage with the bucket that was provided. It gets really load in the mornings due to the locals coming out and setting up shop and going out on the river to fish. Overall it was nice. I will say this we over paid... the walk-in price is way cheaper in their currency.

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 great hotel
Easily THE best place to stay in Elmina. The location is perfect, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food is excellent and the rooms are spacious, well appointed and clean. What more do you want? We just got back home an hour ago and we're already looking forward to our next visit.
