Food is good 👍🏾 Ambience 👍🏾 Location 👍🏾 (if you are mobile) Amenities 👍🏾 Rooms🤔 It’s really affordable for a 5* hotel in Calabar. And if you go during the December holidays, there’s so much activity because this is where everybody stays.

A serene environment that keeps you in touch with nature. A lake view of Calabar estuary, traditional cuisine served with a panache. An experience my visiting staff and colleagues still treasures.

I visited during of Calabar night dinner and I must confess, the food especially the epkan was amazing...well spiced. You can also try the unripe plantain delicacy and some fresh palm wine while you at it...lol

Food was virtually the same every day...breakfast, lunch and dinner...and the novelty wore off big time. No proper coffee.

There is a wide variety of dishes in the menu but only few available and it takes so long to be served ... May be the buffet with African dishes would have been better but it is not always the ideal for European palate ......More
