I was very well received when I arrived at the hotel. The bar had really cold drinks and I really appreciated the hot and tasty meal. I will return to the hotel any time because of the service I received.

Quite a mixed experience! The room I was given was quite nice. But that was as good as my experience was in the hotel! Terrible options for dinner. Quite a crazy price to pay for a buffet with annoyingly limited options! Just when I woke up feeling ripped off the night earlier, I woke up to realize there was no... More

I was badly surprised to walk in a best western 4 star hotel and find these kind of conditions. none of the facilities in the web site (such as pool, gym, tennis court...) were available. the room itself didn't have a rug, I was walking directly on the mosaic. the bathroom door was not even closing. there was a damp...

I spent one evening at this hotel. It is located close to the seafront, Bar Beach area. Apart from the initial impressions when you arrive, the hotel facilities are pretty old and not well kept. The restaurant food was OK. Staff were friendly enough but nothing takes away the disappointment of the room itself.

Stayed here with my hubby and children for the Lagos countdown to the New Year. This was the 2nd year in a row. The Business Excutive room is spacious and comfortable. The room we had overlooked the Bar Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Only had the buffet breakfast where the offering was limited... More

While I could never fault the friendliness and help from the staff, the hotel is way below par. The bedrooms have only the tiniest windows but unfortunately only looking inward to the internal (covered) courtyard where meals can be eaten. I had to change rooms 3 times due to things from the tv to the wifi not working or due... More

I moved here for 2 days from the overpriced and dated Sheraton Ikeja. Was surprised to find a refurbished place with nice, clean rooms. Stone floors, no nasty carpet. Marble bathrooms, nice design. Staff very helpful, restaurant makes good African food. Breakfast and fast wifi internet included in rate. Famous Nigerian actors were here shooting a movie during my stay... More
