A solid hotel, some of the rooms and especially the bathrooms are dated but everything else works well, the food is acceptable but not startling and the communal areas all are well maintained. You won't be amazed but unless unrealistic won't be shocked either

On the regret side, the staff are friendly and cheerful. They've been consistently the positive side of the property. The relief is... More

They cut out the water with no warning what so ever. Want me to take a bath with a bucket of water. They call them self a 5star hotel and this is what you get after paying a fortune to stay here. Food takes forever to serve and once it arrives the food is cold. Really a bad experience and... More

We recently held the first India Education Fair at FPH and our overall experience at FPH was satisfying and we would recommend others to use the venue for their business meetings/seminars. The staff were very cordial and the food served was excellent.---Vijay Kumar, STPL Nigeria

Stayed at Federal Palace and held our business reviews in their conference facilitates. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bathrooms need a bit if attention to upgrade things a little. Reception and communal areas are nice wide open spaces, something that's nice to have when you are in Lagos for a few days, with the grass in the front, that leads... More

From the day we set out to hold my niece's wedding reception at FPH, we were amazed at the helpfulness of FPH staff... nothing was too much for them to accommodate for us. They worked tirelessly to ensure we got everything we asked for. The food was superb, beautifully laid out and hot! The waiters and waitresses immaculately turned out... More

I was a bit worried when I was told that I will be staying in this hotel. This was because I usually see the tall run down building from the outside. But I was suprised to see a new hotel building within the compound when I arrived. I spent 5 days in the Hotel during an exhibition within the hotel... More

Our daughter's wedding reception was held in the marquee because she wanted the backdrop of the hotel grounds in the wedding pictures. It helped of course that the recently renovated hotel has had the gardens beautifully landscaped into an ethereal experience with the Lagos Port and lagoon providing an unforgettable vision of nature. Add to this the fantastic service we... More
