My home fare from home is still the Protea Hotel Leadway. The very good level is still there. The new GM Dean keeps the pace from Ankia. The rooms are nice and specious. The kitchen fulfills our requirements. It is time to change the menu. The staff is great and looks after the guests. I can recommend the hotel to... More

I have stayed in the hotel a couple of times and the experience has always been the same; very comforting. Nice bed, soft pillows, ready to help staff, nice restaurant & food. Quiet & serene ambience inspire of the hassle & bustle of Lagos. It's closeness to the airport is also a unique quality.

I have been traveling and working in Nigeria for the past 2 years and have visited various hotels. The Protea Leadway is always one of our top choices when staying in Lagos. Very clean and nicely decorated rooms. A very friendly check in staff who only need to see you once and remember your name. A lovely little restaurant with... More

If I can have these three aspects I would definitely return. This is what I experienced in Protea Hotel Leadway. The entire staff were friendly and had the... More

I had a short visit here when I recently had to overnight in Lagos in between flights. The hotel itself is quite small but is very quaint. It has a nice restaurant and pool area and the food is very good. Although pricey, the hotel rooms are quite clean, comfortable, and inviting. Although my room rate included breakfast, I had... More
