The setting is stunning, right on the banks of a 10km meteorite formed lake, with views of fishermen in their canoes from your bedroom window. The hotel is now used more as a conference centre and there weren’t many guests actually staying at the hotel. Eating outside may be romantic but the small flies and mosquitoes are fairly dense and it’s impractical at night. After having to eat in our bedroom one night, the staff agreed we could eat on our own in the conference centre. If you don’t mind waiting, they do excellent home-made pizzas.
Nice walks along the lakeside to Abono.
We visited Borbiri Butterfly Sanctuary the next day (90 mins drive but no traffic jams which you would get if you travelled from Kumasi.)
Hotel room was O.K.- had air conditioning, TV., bathroom with shower: electricity (although there were occasional power cuts around the lake) but slightly run down.. Although there were loads of flies and mosquitoes, we didn’t suffer from bites. Good location for bird watching.

Should have known by the name we were headed for trouble. The road to Paradise was unpaved, deeply rutted, narrow, dusty, overgrown and steep.
Two other guests were there,

The other lodges remained empty. We ordered dinner and were advised it would be half an hour until served. Peckish but understanding, we waited. During this time the twenty or so staff who were employed to look after the 4 of us sat down for an impromptu dinner and drinking session. It started fine but we realized that the boisterous - heading toward rowdy - group were more interested in serving themselves than the guests. Hunger morphed into headache. A few of the staff, sensitive to my condition, did the only logical thing. They pulled a few large drums off the stage and began to jam. Had I been at Woodstock, I certainly would have enjoyed Santana's drummer, Michael Shreve's, interpretation of Soul Sacrifice but I was not ready to take in the vibe at the time. After some serious complaining and cajoling we received our salad and sandwich, wolfed the meal down and headed back to our air conditioned room to find the air conditioner broken. Realizing that we were not at the Ritz, we accepted our fate and I sat down to work on the blog. Did you know that cratered lakes miles from civilization are not the most conducive spots to receive internet signals let alone WiFi? Now you do. So we curled up in this enormous bed in a slightly bug infested, under lit, warm, muggy room and went to sleep. On the bright side, the bathroom had hot water and decent pressure and one of the three TV channels broadcast Premier League football, so it wasn't a total write off.

The hotel is fine. It is definitely not glamorous, but some of the reviews are surprisingly harsh. If you are used to simple accommodation, you will be fine here. Insects are definitely a problem, so bring netting with you. The rooms in the first two buildings closest to the reception are better kept up than those in the final building. Food service is shockingly slow and the food was not as good as other places in Ghana. The lake is of limited interest - and was the least favorite part of my two week trip around Ghana. If this is your alternative to staying in Kumasi, just be aware that the drive through the Kumasi traffic to get the sights, may make you wish you stayed closer to town.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in one of the first two buildings. Also, bring a torch as there are power outages.

I have been here on a number of occasions and have written very positive reviews. Have seen some considerable improvements since June 2010, but my last visit in October this year will be my last. Formerly pleasant staff are now surly, and rude. Food which was such a strength (slow but good) is now so poor I could finish my meal. The cost of bad food is very high. But worst of all was the service! No smiles, the man in the reception was trluy poor with no customer service skills whatsoever.

The rooms are really dated now, tatty curtains and dirty bathrooms. On reflection not much of the rooms has changed, but I suppose when the customer service is good one can be more forgiving about the facilities.

The grounds are still unique and well kept. The only redeeming point is the excellent horse riding facility run by the Green Ranch. If you are coming to ride, check out the rooms at the Green Ranch.

Paradise Lost, I'm afraid!

The grounds were very nice - lots of green grass up against a lake. From a distance the hotel looks nice....but the rooms were dirty. Bugs were overwhelming - even inside the rooms. Bathroom and shower was dirty - moldy. Beds and linens were dirty as well as the floors.
Would not stay here again - but would swing by to see the grounds.
