Ghost hotel in Sierra Leone
The hotel is in the middle of nowhere but security is good and also staff have a hard time to use their credit card machine and that might take you 30 minutes to 45 minutes just to charge your card for a simple dinner

4/10 Fair

I was shocked to find out that a Sierra Leonean hotel would cater solely to Chinese customers. I bet no hotels in China would do the same. Where is the Sierra Leonean pride? Very limited local food, only Chinese foods. I changed rooms more than 3 times, due to infestations by what appeared to be termites. Breakfast was very poor. No pancakes, cheeses for omlets were very gooey. Management needs to understand that there are other customers at the hotel, apart from Chinese. Shout outs to the kitchen staff, including Kaday, Bah, Hassan, to name a few. The room attendant, Kaday was also very good. The hotel is quiet with a lot of potentials. Management needs to be more considerate and run the hotel like a facility in Sierra Leone, not like China. The Chinese need to adapt to the Sierra Leonean culture, including the food.

10/10 Exceptional

Nice hotel, close to the beach 🏝 🏖 , love;y workers, it’s an intercultural exchange hotel, the Chinese people are friend;y and supportive, I stay here every time I visit my country, I feel more comfortable staying here than staying in my own home haha. They always give me good discount for my long term stay, they always forgive me because my son is very playful and stubborn and causes allot of trouble lol, kids. It’s the only hotel the president and other diplomats highly trust to host their meetings and events, as I’m writing now, I’m here with the Chinese President, it feels amazing. Very reasonable and family friendly \, I highly recommend

2/10 Poor

Can do a lot better
Stayed 4 nights for business purposes: not up to standards and not worth it. Shower drain clogged, wifi weak, room phone not connected, technicians unable to fix tv cable connection, closet door off the rail, no batteries for the safe, food quality questionable, dirty mirrors and doors throughout the hotel, etc etc... was offered a different room which had a deep stail smell of cigar smoke. In short poor quality control. Only positive aspect is quiet restful room. Stay elsewhere if you have the choice.

4/10 Fair

A mixture of experiences. Overall, the staff were great, helpful, nice, but quite slow/unorganized on delivering on certain services (e.g. laundry). The restaurant itself was not as clean as a restaurant should be (and should not forget to mention the mice that we saw running under the tables during dinner time) and food was mediocre. Inexpensive, but would rather pay a bit more to get decent quality elsewhere.
