My first experience of the hotel few years back was fantastic with spectacular facilities, atmosphere, serene and inviting. The rooms are plush and fitted to taste with good service culture and delivery. The meals are something else with a wide selection, especially African. You should try out the sunday brunch. Repeat visits have never been disappointing

This is a must for any sea food lover and also for the novice as the chefs are ready to explain the delicacy available. The waiters are also polite and helpful. For anyone heading to Lagos either on leisure or business,this is the place to be.

The hotel is very well secured considering the gates you have to go through to get inside. However I cannot remember why I stayed there for just one night and left the other day to another hotel. The hotel room was really small, the same for sure goes for the bathroom. However I had to say it was very clean!

The smooth Hospitality impresario. I have been a frequent and long-term guest at this hotel, also promoting it to my work colleagues and friends. The dining experience although a tad pricey is made a magnificent affair when Afolabi humbly ushers you to your table a manager who LEADS by example. He treats as family!!!
