"Perfect...for romantic stays"
I have spent 5 nights with my family in this hotel with a stunning view over the ocean. The small houses overlooking the ocean are very clean and cozy. The mattress is comfortable and the bathtub right in front of the window of the bathroom is a nice touch. It is a pity that the buffet is too expensive for what it offers (while Les Cocotiers restaurant is very good!) and that the bar closes very early at night (something around 10). After a while it can get a bit boring if you are not there for a romantic stay (which is for sure the main market for this hotel)
Wasn't sure what to expect after staying at two other properties in Seychelles in the same week but glad that I had saved the best one for the last. Got an upgrade to a deluxe villa 103 based on my Diamond status with the chain. Loved keeping the balcony/terrace door open and just listening to the waves hitting the rocks. The villa was well designed and spacious. Both the internet and the AC worked well. Breakfast could have had bit wider selection of items. Had one night dinner at the bar and thought that it was ok (they had Creole buffet at the one restaurant and the other one was closed). Wouldn't mind returning.
"Average Resort, average experience..."
The hotel is situated on the northern part of the Island which is the better part to visit during the months of April to September. It is about 40 minutes from the airport. We had stayed at the pool villa which I highly recommend since you would spend a lot of your trip in the room. The hotel has only 2 restaurants and 1 bar. The "beach" on the property is very small and can barely be used. They do offer kayaks and snorkeling equipment for free though. There are not many activities to do at the hotel itself but they do organize excursions. If you pre-book they do arrange a private dinning at an area near the "beach" which is secluded. Here you are offered a 3 course meal which is pre predecided with the chef. Staff is friendly, the service is average and food is good. It was a good hotel, with well kept rooms and facilities. Although there was nothing really wrong with the hotel here was nothing that great about it either... It is an average hotel
Fantastic location for the first leg of our honeymoon. We stayed in a Grand Ocean View Pool Villa which was fantastic - worth every penny. Its probably one of the most private (yet feels open) pool villas we have stayed in. Fantastic views and the pool was big enough to swim in (unlike most which are more like plunge pools). We had a couples massage for 1h which was great - the views over the sea was just perfect. The only downside would be the restaurants on site - they are not great I would recommend taking a taxi to local restaurants near by e.g. The Savoy has a great seafood restaurant and we also at at La Plage (their haddock mash was fantastic!)
"Amazing hotel, perfect location, friendly staff"
After a lot of research my girlfriend and I decided to stay at the Hilton northolme and we couldn't have been more satisfied. The location was perfect, hotel had its own small little beAch cove where snorkeling was available and some decent fish to see and it was 5 'in drive to beau vallon, - beach that rivals the beaches of praslin and la digue. After visiting the famous beach in praslin my girlfriend and I thought beau vallon was just as good. Beau vallon also has tons of restaurants and beach stalls serving fresh fish too. The hospitality was amazing at Hilton northolme. Staff member Susanta need extra recognition. He organized champagne for our arrival and a discounted massage and even spent one day organizing a decoration of our jacuzzi in our room. He was available at all time for any excursions needs. He truky made our stay so wonderful. Overall I have to say the staff at northolme were some of the best staff I ever experienced at any hotel. It made the whole experience so pleasant. We were glad we didn't pay more to stay at the banyan tree which was quite far off and isolated compared to where we were. The rooms too are beautiful. All rooms pretty much have an ocean view and they are just like the pictures. Rooms super clean and nice linens and nice sitting areas on the balconies. Honestly I couldn't think of a negative to our entire experience. It was so wonderful and we thoroughly enjoyed our weeklong stay. The food too at the bar area was great for a quick bite any time of day. Great quality food! Overall great location, awesome staff and beautiful rooms. Would definitely stay again in a heartbeat.
