We stayed at this hotel in June of 2013 for the first time, though I have stayed in Tamale a number of times in other hotels. When we checked out, the lady I was traveling with was charged in US dollars rather than Ghanaian cedis, which is totally dishonest and unacceptable. I did not realize what had happened until we were on the road and it was too late to correct the situation. Also, be sure to check that the toilet flushes, the door locks work and the AC/fan are in working order. If you are paying 150 cedis for a double room, it is a pricier option but better accommodation than the Catholic Guest House or TICCS (but they are much cheaper). If you are paying US$ 150 per night, you are getting ripped off big time, as we were. However, I do want to make a point of saying the food preparation in their restaurant was really good, and I would certainly go back for the food, though likely not to stay.
