    Excellent view of Goderich

    This hotel has just gotten better over the last few years. Its really an exceptional place to stay in Freetown, very clean and comfortable, and a great value for the money.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The Country Lodge is my favorite hotel in Freetown. It has the best view of the ocean and town (from top of Station Hill); reliable wifi and very friendly staff. Most rooms have verandas overseeing the ocean; there's a gym; tennis court and pools. And it's also far from the hustle and bustle of the city which (for me) is a huge plus. Highly recommended.

    The Country Lodge Hotel has a magnificent view of the Atlantic Ocean and Freetown from the top of the Hill Station. It has a gym and two swimming pools (one for kids) and the best wifi in town (I could download a 50 min movie in 10 minutes). The access road to the top of the hill is quite bumpy, but manageable even during the rainy season. The bar food menu is not great and it's the only one available during the rainy season. The main restaurant (open the rest of the year) has a much better selection of food.

    Friendly, clean but restaurant could be better

    Nice large room, generally clean and comfortable and staff is friendly and switched on. Food was so, so with some dishes very good and some dishes very disappointing. Wifi surprisingly good, very few power outages, very poor water pressure in the shower.

    Great place to stay

    I only stayed here for 1 night, but I really enjoyed my stay. While the location isn't especially convenient for accessing Freetown, being located in the hills gives you an amazing view over Freetown which makes it worthwhile. The view from the bar/restaurant was great! The food here was good too. The staff were extremely friendly and I couldn't fault them. Breakfast was good but would have been nice to have proper coffee rather than instant coffee. I'll happily stay again next time I'm in Sierra Leone. Thanks!

  • 6.0.Good

    The hotel is currently under construction. They had upgraded our rooms to the presidential suite which was across from the main lobby in another building. There are no elevators and it far from the restaurants. Lots of stairs and walking. I also wish my mattress was softer. The view from the restaurant was amazing. The staffs were the nicest most attentive group of people I have ever met.

    Not bad!

    We spent almost a week here and although it’s a great choice for Freetown there are a few minor downsides. The menu is limited in the restaurant and sometimes sections of the menu are totally unavailable. The pool is lovely but there are often afternoon or evening events on which prevent you from utilising the pool and relaxing down by the pool in the evening whilst peacefully enjoying the sunset. There was often very loud music until 3am, which although not an issue for us if you are a light sleeper it could well be.
