    Quiet area of Cape Point Bakau

    This hotel is located in the residential area about a 5 minute walk from the Cape Point area of Bakau. It is situated over several floors. There is no elevator. The common areas have their own quaint regional ambiance. The rooms have air conditioning, TV, and mosquito netting over the beds. The wifi is good throughout the property. A continental breakfast is served. The staff are friendly and helpful. There is a security guard at the main entrance.

    A cozy lodge with great staff

    Banjul is a complicated place for hotel selection. You either have high fancy tourist resorts or "not so fancy" lodges... There isn't a "business-style" hotel. Roc Heights falls into the second category. It's quite a nice and cozy lodge, but don't expect any "luxuries". Breakfast is quite simple, but it will get you on the road. Rooms are very spacious, but again, nothing really "sophisticated". But one thing for sure is unbeatable.. staff friendliness. Everyone at Roc Heights is great! Very friendly people. If you're staying for many days, I would suggest to stay business days here, and then go for the "fancy hotels" just for the weekend. Like most lodges, you don't have a traditional reception, and there is no food at the hotel (except for breakfast). They order from surrounding restaurants. You have interesting restaurants at walking distance, but you have to face 500m of dirt/sand road, so avoid classy shows.

    I liked the quiet location away from the main strip. The gardens were beautiful. I also appreciated the mosquito netting around the bed!

    Great friendly hotel

    The room was clean & very spacious plus a view over the pool from the balcony. It's located in a quiet side road & only 5 minutes walk to the local restaurants & beach. Breakfast is generous with cereals, fresh bread, eggs, juice + tea/coffee. For me though it was the staff that made my stay extra special. Friendly & really helpful from arranging tour guides to general information. Would stay here again.

    Great guesthouse accommodation. Recommend for service, cleanliness and comfort. Good wifi and workspace in rooms. Rooms are very spacious. Continental breakfast with some local foods. Not a tourist area but mainly local and NGO community. Close to beach and a couple of restaurants (10 min walk)

    Comfortable stay

    I only stayed two-nights in the hotel. Room was comfy and spacious. AC is a bit old but works fine. Breakfast was fine but no extra were proposed (e.g fried eggs). If you travel for business for a week, I would not recommend it particularly as it is a bit far away from everything.

    Wir hatten ein 3 Bettzimmer bei Expedia reserviert. Das Hotel hat überhaupt keine 3 Bettzimmer. Wir mussten dann 2 Zimmer nehmen und nochmal bezahlen. das ist ärgerlich

    다음에도 꼭 이용하고 싶은 호텔입니다.

    저번에 호텔이용후 만족하여 다시 체크인한 곳입니다. 주변지역으로 이용이 편리하고 타 호텔보다 편안함을 주는 곳이라 그곳에 가게 된다면 다음에도 꼭 이용하고 싶습니다. 덧붙여, 아침식사가 푸짐하면 더더욱 좋겠습니다.
