    Made us hugely welcome and gave us very informative introduction to the area as first time visitors. Brian was able to arrange airport transport and car hire at a competitive price and was much appreciated. We look forward to a return visit.

    This guesthouse does not have WiFi and the self service apartment only had AC in half of the apartment. There is no Nespresso as the photos show, only Neacafé

    Great stay on the north west of Mahe

    Beginning with our wonderful and affable owner/ hosts to the warm and friendly staff, to the carefully and beautifully designed guest house, everything about Glacis Heights Villa exceeded all expectations. The Villa has wonderful views and the rooms are comfortable, clean and we'll appointed. Breakfast was perfect and the materials used throughout the Villa are of the highest quality. Our hosts, Beryl and Brian made us feel like family and we're extremely helpful and thoughtful. We regretted having to leave the Seychelles and Glacis Heights Villa.

    This is a small but expanding guest house with a great mix of warmth and professionalism. In case you are trying to find the guest house on your own (don't -- arrange for one of their excellent drivers to pick you up from the airport) , it is up a steep hill from the main coastal road, through a gate next to the Vimal market store. Although the hill is very steep, the climb only lasts two or three minutes so it is doable for anyone in reasonable shape. There are amazing views from the rooms and common areas: enjoy the fruit bats, the trees, the sea, and the view of Silhouette Island. The owners are really friendly and helpful -- they may even offer to drive you one way to dinner if you don't have a car. Breakfast on the big open air balcony is a treat. The common areas are attractive. There is a small pool, but better to walk down the hill to the small, almost private beach. Absolutely beautiful space, like a smaller, much less crowded version of the famous Anse Lazio on Praslin Island. There is decent snorkeling right off coast. There is a great restaurant up the road, about a 7 minute walk away or you can go into Beau Vallon for dinner and take a cab or bus back (last bus around 9 p.m.). To go into Victoria, you can take buses either direction as they go both ways around the Northern peninsula and Glacis is about halfway around. Not too hard to get around Mahe by bus. Only problem with Villa is : inconsistent WiFi. Please fix. Otherwise, wonderful! .

    We have spent here 7 great days. Brian is very hospitable and always ready to help by any questions. Room was clean and had all necessary. For the breakfast we could order from the list what we prefer. Room-cleaning was every day, even on Sunday and public holiday. Once we did hire a car for exploring the island ourselves. Everything was perfect. The villa is located on a pretty high hill, about 10 minutes with a bus and 40 minutes walk from Beau Vallon Beach. We had very picturesque view from our room to the ocean and sunsets. Nearby there are two little beautiful beaches, wich can be used mostly on the low-tide. Also there is an Indian-shop at the villa. It was opened all days including Sunday and public holiday. We ordered a dinner by Brian. As we have chosen fish, he cooked for us very tasty tuna-steak with rise and dessert. We enjoyed our time on the Seychelles. Thank you Brian for this!

    Sehr schöne kleine familiäre Unterkunft. Besonders positiv fand ich den Service. Mir war die Matratze zu hart, bereits am Nachmittag wurde nachgebessert und ein Kaltschaum-Topper von dem Personal auf die Matratze bezogen. Klasse !! Auch der Transfer von der Fähre und zum Flughafen hat Klasse funktioniert. Wir hatten eine eigene kleine Terrasse und es gibt einen Gemeinschaftspool. Der kleine Supermarkt am Eingang der (sehr steilen) Zufahrt ist praktisch. Ich würde hier sofort wieder Urlaub machen.
