This hotel manages to offer reliable, international standards of service and comfort without losing its African roots.
Rooms are of a good size and traditionally furnished with dark wood dressers, large wardrobes and air conditioning. There is multichannel television including the main international news channels like BBC World News and - other hotels take note - you get a proper radio in every room, not just some random audio channels on the tv.
In a country where mosquitos can carry malaria it's good to find a hotel that goes round all the rooms every evening with knock-down spray.
The food is nicely presented with main meals in a spacious restaurant and hot and cold snacks on order all day. The breakfast array includes fresh fruits, decent freshly ground coffee and a selection of hot choices, including chef-prepared omelettes and so on.
The staff, including Wilma's marketing team, are always around to offer help if you need it. If you stay more than a night or two they get to know you on first name terms.
The hotel is located across the road from the Accra Mall and fairly close to the airport - the BA and SAA air crews use this hotel. It's not as close to the centre of Accra as other hotels but has much more charm than the chains.
The outside poolside area suffers from noise from the main road which is separated from the hotel by a high wall, but you get used to this and the exterior areas are pleasant places to sit and talk despite this.
Wifi can be rather slow at times but generally works ok in the communal areas and most of the bedroooms. The hotel told me they are working on their internet to improve speed.
Recommended for business or family.
