Tiny rooms and the air con doesn't work. They provided us with a fan which was adequate. Food very average and they ran out of white wine on day 1 and didn't buy anymore! Poor area very small. In the middle of the "strip" area which is great if you like busy busy!

Another visit to The Gambia, so I knew what I was booking. There is no great luxury in this hotel, but it's a fairly small and intimate place to stay and right in the heart of Senegambia. Foam has now been put on top of extremely hard mattresses so the beds are comfier, but the breakfast leaves a lot to... More
