The hotel is gaining a reputation for being a good example of how a small hotel can
be run using ecotourist principles.
Water and power conservation measures have begun and composting is helping with some
of the environmental impacts.
On the socio-economic front we employ 26 members of staff to service our 18 rooms
and keep them throughout the low season. Training is fundamental to the way we
work and our staff is our greatest asset.
We are very active members of the Association of Small Scale Enterprises in Tourism
(ASSET) an organisation that is working with tourist taxi drivers, market vendors,
official guides, juice pressers and fruit sellers. In addition ASSET represents the
National Women Farmers Association and the Gambian Beekeepers Association and is
leading a number of initiatives to promote community-based tourism. ASSET is also
a founder member of Action for Fair Trade in Tourism Africa.
Overall, we try to live up to our reputation of being 'the hotel that gives more
than it takes'.
