Country Lodge is one of Freetown’s finest hotels offering very comfortable accommodation with international standard facilities. It is ideal for settling into Sierra Leone, and is a welcome guarantee of a hot shower and a comfortable bed after strenuous travelling or exploring up country.

 The hotel occupies a commanding position atop Hill Station, the former location of the British administration of West Africa. The site is surrounded by curious colonial-era buildings built on stilts to minimise the impact of the summer rains. The hotel’s verandah offers bird’s-eye views of the Western area where modern mansions, compounds and shanty towns sit side-by-side, sprawling up from the coast along the valleys between the hills. In the distance is the city’s main beach, Lumley Beach, and the Atlantic Ocean.


Country Lodge has recently opened a new wing with 24 rooms and 4 executive suites. The rooms are equipped with TV, a safe, air-conditioning and a network cable for accessing the internet and have spacious en suite facilities. Good WiFi.


The hotel has a large swimming pool and terrace area. The mountains around Freetown offer a spectacular backdrop to a game of tennis on the hotel’s court. The restaurants are always humming with diners and offer a wide, eclectic menu and views across the terrace and the city. The hotel also has a mini-gym and internet access. The popular hotel bar is well-stocked.


Breakfast is served throughout the morning offering anything from a range of fresh fruits to full English fry-ups. Dinner and lunch are offered at either the Eden Restaurant on the terrace or the Coconut Terrace by the pool. The menu is extensive and offers a range of European, Middle Eastern and African dishes. The seafood is particularly recommended. The Country Lodge restaurant is consistently rated as among the best in Freetown. 2022 feedback is excellent.
