African Dreams Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #7 of 143 East London B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2012

African Dreams is a wonderful home from home experience. You may initially be concerned about the area as you approach Quigney where this B&B is located but we found it a charming place with easy access to the rest of East London and the main thoroughfares in and out of the city. We took up three of the five available rooms which meant we pretty much had the run of the place. You can see the ocean from the veranda and you are close enough to walk to the beach. The rooms are comfortable and decorated based on the wildlife they are named after, such as Lion, Zebra, Elephant, etc. Each room has a stacked bar fridge with wine, beer and soft drinks that are very reasonably priced, even for South Africans. The bathrooms are reasonably large. We had a separate bath and shower in Lion, and they provide their own branded assortment of shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, etc. However, if you like to collect these for future use, there is a sign stating you will be charged on departure if you remove the containers.
The staff are great. Friendly, make you feel right at home and helpful when you need them but otherwise keep out of the way. Breakfast is great, and you are only a few minutes drive from some really nice restaurants on the beach front. All in all, well worth staying at...

Room Tip: Elephant looks out over the garden...

First of all when we arrived in east london we were in a city that we dont know at all. When we got to African Dreams we were a bit put off by the surroundings. Once we were welcomed in it was totaly a different story!!! Stunning b&b our room was perfect eveything was just perfect loved evry moment we were there. My yorkie was so happy she even had a little friend and was treated like a princess! Thank you for your kindness

Unfortunately, we didn't make it up North to Tamale to stay at the African Dream Hotel. However, before having to cancel the owner of the hotel serviced us incredibly well. Looking up services, promptly getting back to us with quotes, arranging expeditions etc. Basically answering a ton of questions. It's this thoroughness to that is rare in Ghana and just about anywhere.

I stayed here while on business, it was lovely and homely. The service delightful and the breakfast delicious. It was good coming back to the B&B after a long day out. It was a home away from home!
