Price and service-wise this establishment is exceptional and, without doubt, in a class of its own. My wife, 5-year-old little boy and I spent four days over Christmas in this aptly described mountain paradise and we will long recall fond memories of our time there far in the future. If you are expecting the Dorchester you will be disappointed, but as guest houses go, for 20 Euros or 30 USD for a room for three people, we just could not lose. The views of the surrounding hills are stunning, but they are arguably eclipsed by the quality of the food. The Ghanian inspired lunches and dinners were amazing and most could be made veggie-friendly. To a man and woman the team working at the guest house were super warm and friendly. In a nutshell, Christmas 2014 will long be remembered in our household.

I was the only guest both nights I stayed, so the whole place was really quiet. The food and service were good though, and Tony the owner was attentive, suggesting a hike down to the river with a guide and a trip to Tafi Atome monkey sanctuary. The hike was very sweaty, and the monkey sanctuary was excellent, although Tony's fee for the ride was a bit steep.
My room was a bit tired and the window nets were torn in a few places, but as it was so cool at night there was no need to open the windows anyway.
The road past the hotel down to Fume was being upgraded while I was there, so once that is finished the hotel might not be quite so peaceful.

The views over the hills are really brilliant from this hotel. You feel like you are in the jungle version of an alpine refuge.

The surrouding forest provide good grounds for hiking and adventuring. If you don't get lost (we did) you can hike to the top of Mt Gemi in 2hours.

The food was good. The staff is friendly and welcoming but the hotel/lodge gives the impression it is straight out of the 50s or from a very long time ago at least. Our room smelt damp and musty, the window was also right behind the drinking area so a noisy could've kept us up (thankfully our group was the only one around). The bathroom was just really weirdly built. So yes the accomodation itself is not brilliant but for 50 cedis it was fine.

I would come back for the nature side of it though

Other than the beautiful view, the facility is run down. Over stuffed with cheap decoration and no customer service. No toilet paper upon arrive, the door would not close unless locked, dreadful dusty carpets, reptile droppings in the bathroom, unpleasant cook who hates her job. Not a mountain paradise...

We spent two days in the Volta region at two different hotels. Mountain Paradise was by far the better of the two hotels. It is obvious that Tony, the owner/manager, is hands on and passionate about hospitality. The service from the staff was excellent-very attentive and prompt with every request. The rooms are small but with an ensuite washroom and shower at the low price of 55 Ghc a night, it couldn't be beat. The grounds are lush and green and very peaceful. There are cats, dogs, and rabbits on the property, not to mention the various birds and other wildlife. Our dinner of chicken, rice, and spring rolls was delicious and we drank a beer and chatted with Tony and other guests. The next morning, breakfast was hot, on time, and tasty, especially the organic coffee. We really enjoyed our stay here, which is close to the monkey sanctuary and Mt. Gemi. If you are planning a trip to the Volta region, I highly recommend Mountain Paradise!
