To give you already at the beginning the synopsis of my review: We had a wonderful stay.
Benjamine’s Guesthouse is a small self-catering establishment. The relatively small, yet very clean room comes with a fridge, water cooker, some Nespresso and tea, a large TV, a tiny safe and an incredibly modern A/C. The bathroom is sufficiently sized and spotless as well. Every room has a beautiful patio to relax in the evening and/or dry your clothes. Room service is cleaning the room daily and when you come home from your endeavors a freshly made bed with blossoms on it is awaiting you. The guesthouse is a 5-10 min bike ride away from the Jetty, around the same distance from Anse Source d’Argent, the most beautiful beach Earth according to National Geographics and ca. 15-20 min from Grande Anse.
Benjamine’s Guesthouse provides breakfast for you. We had a selection of fresh fruits, toast, eggs, cheese and jam. Mary (I hope I spell the name correct), the housekeeper if you want, is very friendly, always pleasant to talk to and a good source of information. Other associates of the house will assist you with renting bikes, calling taxis or arranging trips.
In order to reach some restaurants one has to ride the bike but since La Digue is very small one never had to bike more than 10 min to find a good dining spot. Shopping can be done in a small shop only 5 walking minutes away (the shop actually belongs to the owner of the guesthouse). Speaking of which – as in all small guesthouses I have been to on the Seychelles the owner preferred payment in cash (EUR or SRE) so be advised to have enough money with you.
Although it is a self-catering guesthouse there is no common kitchen area you can use in the evenings to prepare your own meals. However I should be mentioning that on request creole style dinner is offered.
