Overcrowded. Too many structures in one place. Beds are uncomfortable, mattresses have been slept in for a long time and thus have too many contours. Restaurants dont have an extensive menu. Good location. But they really need to work on their rooms and furniture.

I have been coming to Family Kingdom for a number of years. On my previous visits I have stayed in a variety of rooms - mostly tired rooms, with fairly scruffy furniture. Imagine my surprise this visit, when I walked into my room - newly refurbished and very smart! The new bed .. with duvet .. the new furniture ......

One of the best resorts in the city based on the living standards of the country, stayed for 3 Months, room service is ok, ambience in and around the resort is good. Pool side bar is good to spend in the evenings. Breakfast fast varieties are limited (as Indians less consume bread all days as breakfast),since there is only 10...

Very happy with Family Kingdom, and would recommend it over other choices in Freetown. The place is quirky and certain things outdated, but that only adds to the charm and character. Breakfast is fresh and wonderful, (especially the coffee). Staff seem very happy and go out of their way to be professional and helpful. The hotel restaurant Papaya does not...

I stayed at the Family Kingdom for two nights (Plaza rooms). Unfortunately on the second night, someone gained access into my room through the balcony door when i was asleep and made away with my laptop, travel documents and other personal belongings. Surprisingly there was no CCTV footage for that night when investigations were launched by the police :( :(...

This was my first visit to Sierra Leone and stayed at Family Kingdom for a couple weeks. Coming back each evening was a real comfort feeling the ambience and quiet surroundings of this place, unlike the larger commercial hotels. The rooms were very comfortable and I appreciated that everything is kept in good order including dedicated power, water and free...

I stayed here for a working week recently, and found Family Kingdom a safe and interesting place. I wasn't paying, but the rates seemed a bit on the high side - however everything worked most of the time, my room was well air conditioned and the hot water supply was constant if slow to emerge from the shower head. Wifi...

We held a number of events here in the last 2 months. The facilities are very good especially the new conference room which must be one of the best in Freetown. The staff and management were great - went out of their way to assist us and make the event a success

Located at the Lumely beach road, the hotel gives the feel of a resort with lowrise villas dotting the landscape. I have never stayed at this place but had the opportunity to visit quite a few of their rooms as it was a regular stay option for colleagues coming from outside. The rooms look old and in need of maintenance....
