I stayed for 3 weeks for work and was very comfortable. I'd stayed elsewhere on a previous visit and Colonades was a significant improvement! Staff are extremely helpful. The rooms are spacious and things work! I had a problem with the shower leaking, it was fixed within the hour. Food is okay, nothing exceptional but satisfactory. The price is also... More

I had 6 nights here in Colonades last month, it was my first time in Nigeria and i enjoyed it. The staff introduced me the traditional food of Nigeria and taught me how to eat it. They were really gentle and kindly, ready to answer to all my questions. There is a swimmingpool outside with a bar and it's perfect... More

Very safe guest house (hesitate to call it a hotel) well off the main road - no traffic noise at all (at least not above the aircon. Good sized rooms with decent TV - pity about the poor mix of channels - be great for plugging your laptop in and watching MP4s. Bathroom works, but plumbing is to local standard... More

I spent 3 nights at the Colonades, was comfortable and happy there. The staff is wonderful, and I had various kinds of help from them during my stay. A buffet breakfast was included wiith the room and offered cooked to order eggs or omelettes. I tried a couple of dinners from the menu and was pleased each time. Grounds are... More

I spent 3 weeks here in May and a further week in June facilitating training programmes in the hotel. Not very safe to go outside without a guard so the whole time was spent in the hotel. Bit like a comfortable prison! Bedroom was spacious with good aircon and a very big bed. TV mainly African, Indian or CNN so... More

Some rooms are better than others! Having spent several months here on and off over the last year I got used to some of the annoyances, like the very weird shower screen and no bath plug or kettle in the room. Bath plugs can be ordered and arrive promptly, kettles are a bigger deal and it takes a lot of... More

One won't see a signboard for the Colonades Hotel, located at 21 Kingsway, Ikoyi, Lagos and that is the way the management wants it. This hotel, located in the high brow, tony Ikoyi section of Lagos, across the lagon from Victoria Island and close to the now hip Lekki area, is quiet, secluded, and secure. Well set back from busy... More

As a solo female on business I do not go out at all - so the room is not only a place to lay my head down at night. The no-tea no-kettle in the rooms was not cool at all. At least the airconditioner worked excellent. The wireless connection had a poor signal, but the LAN connection was great. The... More

This was my first trip to Nigeria for 18 years and I spent a lot of time on the internet reading up on hotels... nothing inspired confidence! Then a friend found the Colonades in Ikoyi and booked it for us. On arrival, you have no idea there is a hotel behind the high gates (great security!)... no sign; just "21"... More
