Located away from the beach, 5 minutes away by foot, the Britannia is a small charming hotel with a friendly atmosphere, less equipped but furnished with a swimming pool and a gorgeous tropical garden. An idael destination for tight purses based on a quality/price ratio.

    Location 5.38 /10

    On the south-west coast of Praslin, at Grand Anse, a bit removed from the sea, across the road. Travelling from the airport located 2 miles away takes 10 minutes. The Britannia is located just before the intersection leading to La Vallée de Mai, classified by Unesco.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Beautifully decorated with local paints, all rooms have a veranda fitted with a settee, a table and 2 armchairs. In the standard rooms, there is no television, fridge or air-conditioning, but a ceiling fan, big bed, a small bed and safe. Do not panic if you see a small lizard moving on the walls! It is a gecko, a friend who fights for your well being by getting rid of mosquitoes and other small beasts it is mad about. The bathrooms are equipped with a wash hand basin, bidet, shower, drying rack, hairdryer and unseparated toilets. Only soap is provided, so bring along your shampoo and bath gel! There is room-service from 7 am to 10 pm.

    Overview 7.20 /10

    Built in 1979, the Britannia was renovated entirely in 2003, especially the swimming pool. It consists of 12 rooms including 7 superior, located around the swimming pool and the restaurant, and 5 standard, apart, separated by a small track fitted in bungalows around the tropical garden. An ideal place to rest, read and play cards on wooden tables equipped with benches and parasols. Located on a large platform, the small 5 ft deep swimming pool with an area of 774 ft² is furnished with a shower, parasols, wooden tables and chairs as well as a dozen deckchairs and mattresses. Towels are supplied at the reception.

    Food and drink 7.70 /10

    The Britannia Hotel and Créole Restaurant is setting the tone: Note: here, only local dishes are sampled. Many Seychellois come from elsewhere to relax taking advantage of the renowned restaurant. The bar also serves superb cocktails.

    Beach 7.70 /10

    You will need to walk for 5 minutes to reach the beach, located across the road. It is a public beach, without bath nor any equipment. The beach of Grand Anse boasts of the largest sandbar in Praslin. Thus, it is perfectly suited for fly-fishing or hand line fishing. However, at low tide, you have to walk for some time before you can bath. Further away, the coral reef protects the lagoon from the waves. From May to October, north-west trade winds bring algae to the shore. Choose November to March, the best season without algae or turbulence.

    To know

    Transportation from the hotel to all diving clubs and departure points for excursions to the entire island of Praslin is free.
    The Britannia derives its name from the first English ship that anchored in the Seychelles, a reminder of its colonial past. It is located near a school and a discotheque, "The Jungle", opened on Friday and Saturday from 10 pm to 4 am.
    Note that the Britannia is not directly on the seashore, but 5 minutes away on foot from the other side of the main road running along Praslin island.

    Lodging advice

    For more quiet, choose one of the 5 standard rooms, cheaper, located across the road, around a small tropical garden. However, it has only one ceiling fan: for those who prefer air-conditioning, take one of the 7 superior rooms, located around the swimming pool and the restaurant. They are also equipped with a mini-bar and television.
    Note that only 2 superior rooms are equipped with a bathtub: rooms 11 and 12.
