I have seen Best western hotels all over but this one will definitely kill the image. Just to start with in the restaurant at the ground floor, you definitely have to raise your hand or look for someone to serve if you need service...even though you would see the staff chatting away at a booth which I assumed was the...

People just moving in to Lagos, Nigeria in the 21st century would never experience the Bar Beach. Memories include the Bar Beach Show where musicians, artistes, fun lovers and lovebirds came around to have fun. Now there is a lot of construction going on for the new Lagoon City but the view is still breathtaking from the 5th floor of... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks, room was booked by my company and apparently it wasn't up to my expectations. Positive: 1) The staff was fantastic, they made me feel at home. Thanks to all the staff & Happy New Year to you all! 2) The location was super (having the Star mega jamz to visit every evening made it... More

I planned on staying at least five nights but only stayed two which was two too many, the hotel is nothing like described on line, it is an over priced dump with the worst food I've ever experienced in my extensive travels. I'm not sure how it got it star rating but I wouldn't put it more than a 1... More

For some strange reasons, I always have one thing or another that takes me to this hotel and I cant understand how the hotel managers sleep and wake up everyday, knowing they offer extremely shabby services.. You pay cash to staff to get things done, iron, coffee, drinks etc Rooms are very uncomfortable and smells damp. Toilets have brown stuffs... More

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
