Good hotel and good services-AVOID HOTEL TRANSPORT
Great hotel and great experience. My only qualm was the fee they charged me for transport from the airport to my hotel (you may be aware you need to take a boat into Freetown); service was said to be 'VIP' but I ended up waiting for more than an hour for my boat to come while the passengers I passed by in the queue surpassed me on their boats. The boat is $40 each way and the hotel charged me $120 each way (3x the already expensive boat ride price). Once I found out the price relative to the service that was offerred (my secretary booked it), I cancelled the return. The accepted after a bit of back and forth. So definitely arrange your own transport.
