“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

Me and my daughter stayed here on a diving holiday in December 2012. Eddy was most helpful and the breakfast service was great. We were on a diving trip and the room was spacious to cater for all the extra equipment we had.

Really a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Choose a sea facing room on the second floor. Enjoy your sun downer on the balcony, bliss!!!

We stayed in the room nº 4 (triple room with sea view). I am very satisfied with this guesthouse. Location is perfect - in front of Beau Vallon beach. The room was very spacious and clean.The guesthouse has all the facilities required for beach vacation, such as an external tap to clean your feet from sand, lines for drying clothes. The room has a nice large private terrace with a table and chairs - perfect spot for your evening glass of wine with ice cream. There are a lot of small shops and restaurants nearby. There is private parking. It is possible to book a car through the owners (our car was delivered to the jetty and returned in the guesthouse at no extra cost). Eddy is very friendly, informative and speaks perfect English (however, sometimes it is difficult to find him). Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Opt for a room with sea view on the second flow. Avoid 1st floor rooms - guests take breakfast on th...

In Oktober 2012 we (a senior couple) stayed 9 nights in Georgina's Beach Cottages. It is a nice guesthouse with a very friendly staff. We stayed in a nice and clean room with a fan and airco, coffee and tea facilities and, ...with a balcony at the front of the guesthouse where we sat at the end of the day drinking a beer we bought at Mike's Store (almost) next door. Also next door is a busstop, so it was very easy to take the bus to see a lot of the island. We had a very good time here, so we decided to go back for one last night after visiting the other islands Praslin and La Digue and before flying home again. Eddy picked us up from the jetty and brought us back to the airport the other day late in the evening. We could use our room until that time without paying extra. A very good service!

Georgina's is great if you wish to stay by Beau Vallon beach, but don't want to stay at an expensive hotel. Eddie the manager is friendly and helpful - he has been a dive instructor and can advise on diving locations other Seychelles. Breakfast is included with the room - eggs, toast, fruit, tea and coffee. The rooms are a decent size, have a nice design, and some have recently been refurbished. There is a bus stop right outside which is handy to get around Mahe.

Room Tip: The best rooms are the ones upstairs with balcony with vies to the beach.

We stayed at Georgina's from the 20th - 27th December 2011. The rooms are basically furnished, but what more do you need in such a great location. We had twin beds (shame), a large wardrobe, bedside tables, a T.V., fridge, kettle and basic cutlery and tableware, but that is all that is needed. The bathroom was again basic but functional and as for the location, well you just could not get better. The local beach is just a walk across the road and all the resteraunts are within a 5 minute walk, although this is limited. There are two dive shops within 5 minutes the nearest and the one that I used was to the left out of Georgina's called Ocean Dream Divers. There are also a number of small convenience stores within the local vicinity that stock the basics that you will need, i.e. coffee, milk, bread etc.
Eddy, who now runs Georgina's, cannot do enough for you in making you feel welcome and giving advice on where to go. The rooms are cleaned every day to a very high standard and the girls are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is big and sets you up for the day as previously stated by others. At the price they charge it is superb value for money!!!
We hired a car and we consider this a must as Taxi's were reported to be very expensive. We travelled around most of the Island and it is very small, but the trip through the mountain is very long and well worth the it to get onto the South West side of the island or you can go straight ovr and head South East tfor some small but gorgeous beaches. Beau Vallon beach is very popular and can get quite busy however if it is quiet beaches you want just head out of Beau Vallon in either direction and you will find plenty of beaches with lush white sand and blue sea to die for with little or no population on them.

I was the first honored guest within Georgina's new guest house and it was a very pleasant experience. I have visited several guest houses on Mahe and even one on Praslin and I can definitively say that at the moment, with their new facility, you’d be hard pressed to find a better value. Prices around Mahe have all gone up, but even so, Georgina’s is still very reasonable at 70 Euros a night, which includes a good-sized breakfast that includes fresh fruit, toast and jam, tea or coffee, and eggs cooked like you like them. The rooms are very stylish (very modern looking), clean, and include two twin beds pushed together and have modern conveniences such as a nice fan, air conditioning, refrigerator, flat-screen television with the two local channels, a wardrobe, places to lock up valuables and a mirror light. The whole guest house complex feels very secure and requires keys to get into the building itself at night.

Besides that, there are the normal conveniences that Georgina’s has always provided, which is excellent service, friendly staff, a very accommodating hostess, and an unbeatable location. It is less than 30 meters from the nearest bus stop to go to Victoria, and of course, Beau Vallon beach is right across the street, so one can easily go to sleep to the sound of the Indian Ocean or go play in it at will. All of the tourist attractions that Beau Vallon has to offer are a very short walk away, from restaurants, to pizzerias, to clothing shops, to glass bottom boat tours, dive shops, water sporting rentals, and a whole lot more.

If you prefer quaint stays to resorts and you prefer friendly, personal, and cheaper stays to extravagant, decadent, and impersonal, then there really is no better value than Georgina’s – you really won’t be disappointed. I was impressed enough to take the time to write this review.

Room Tip: The guest house rooms are pretty much all the same except that the ones closer to the road are sligh...

We have spent 4 days at Georgina's in July 2011. Eddy (the owner) went to pick up at the Airport for 20 Euros and brought back (to the Jetty) for 10 Euro: that's a wonderful service at a convenient rate. They were renovating/building the guest house, so there were men at work and a bit of noise. We stayed at the main house, in the family room (66 euros per night B&B). The room was clean and complete of all kind of stuff, although the furniture seemed a bit too worn. The place is more or less as I've read on Tripadvisor (reviews from other guests) and I would recommend it unless you need more comfort than a basic-but-clean accommodation.
Eddy was very helpful, he couldn't have done more to make our stay comfortable. His father brought us around the island (full day by car at 60 Euros), he was lovely.
The breakfast was surprisedly good and could be consumed among several birds (which made our 5-year-old daughter very happy) on the veranda.
Besides, Beau Vallon is for sure one of the best locations I've seen at the Seychelles.
In the end, I would definitely suggest spending some nights at Georgina's.
