Spent a weekend here, and liked it very much. Set in a historic building, the hotel oozes with character. Its perfect location allowed us to enjoy the imposing view of the Elmina Castle, the hustle bustle of the harbor and the fish market nearby. There was not a dull moment while sitting in the cool shade of the hotel terrace...

Spent the weekend here and it was wonderful. I suspect I was the only guest at the hotel but the service was excellent. I had a fabulous room with views of the castle and the fort (Room #10), very spacious, hot water and AC both working perfectly. The power went out on occasion but the hotel ran their generators until...

Visited this place for good food and the Bar wich is located next to the Elmina Castle and the Water front. The only reason we did not stay is because they do not have their hotel prices listed, which opens them up for negotiations on the prices. Not good in my book

The hotel has a great view of fort and fishing boats. The rooms were basic but ok. A/c was ok. Besides the great view the little bar/restaurant facing fort was one of the highlights. Naturally most of menu was seafood due to being 20 meters from the port.

I have been to elmina more than 10 times but this has been the most fantastic stay so far. The hotel location is amazing. From our window we could watch the boats come and go and from the terrace we could be feet from the action but totally comfortable. To be honest it's not quiet at night, but it's an...

I had difficulty in getting a secured parking place for my car. Management should get a car park to secure cars of Guest. The facility could be upgraded to meet the standard of coconut grove Accra and elsewhere.

The Hotel is no longer active, or so we were told at its sister hotel Coconut Grove Beach Resort. May be temporarily closed as the bridge by Elmina Castle is being re-built, but did not receive clear information about it.

STEPHEN A, Manager at Coconut Grove Bridge House, responded to this review

Dear Valentina, Please the Hotel is still active, the only challenge is the construction of the Bridge. The reason perhaps, you were informed of not being in existence. The bridge is almost in the finishing state and would be completed in a couple of months. As part of an addition, the hotel organise walking tours of the Elmina Township. Aside...

My sister and I stayed at the Bridge House for a week doing research at the Elmina Castle. Stephen, Dawid, Elizabeth and Mina made our stay so special. Our spacious room overlooked the inlet and we spent hours watching the fishing activities at the foot of the castle. The food was of the best we had in Ghana and the...

We stayed in the second floor, room no. 10. From there you have a phantastic view on the castle on the opposite site and on the entrance of the harbour with the fishermen's boats coming and going and on the fish market. The hotel itself is clean and the restaurant is not bad, although they could show some more enthusiasm...

We stayed here in April to visit Elmina, The staff were great. The room was clean and spacious and the view was amazing - really couldn't have been better (sorry - can't remember the room number, but it was at the top, overlooking the castle and the bridge). It was great just watching life in Elmina, although it was so...
