In low season, the spacious and nicely equipped rooms go for 57.50 USD, in high season for 69 USD (including tax). En suite with good showers, equipped with aircon, tv and fridge, the rooms look out over the bay on Sussex beach. This is easily the best value you can get for any accommodation on any of the beaches south of Freetown.
Food in the restaurant is very good and very reasonably priced. Do not skip the fish carpaccio, possibly the best thing you will eat in Sierra Leone.
The private beach associated with Florence's is small, but you have easy access to the nearby bay and the main beach. Note that here, though, you will often get stalked, though fairly innocently, by young local boys, hoping for a bit of interaction.
Watch out for the strong current in the stream separating Florence's from the main beach.
Also, this place is known by most everyone as Franco's (who is Florence's husband and runs a diving school).
