Booking was efficient and easy and so was the check in. The front desk staff were typically aloof and it took 3 people to do one task, but it was completed quickly. The room was a major disappointment. Very small and cramped, insufficient working space and poorly lit. The bed itself was OK and the linen was good but let... More

This hotel costs higher than a budget hotel, The decor was upscale and the room was very clean and comfortable. I arrived earlier than expected and was still able to check in. I was charged a little extra for the early check in, but I did not mind, as I was exhausted. The staff were very also helpful.

The ACs are directly over the bed in the bedrooms and make it tough to sleep. But the food is amazing. All the outlets are really very good. Swimming pool very clean and poolside snacks and drinks are delicious.

Good service that is constantly worked on with a real commitment to customer service. Great vibe nice surroundings and excellent food. Breakfast is okay but not fantastic but the food and the fact you have a wide variety of options all the time makes it excellent for feeding. Not cheap but decent value for Lagos. Fantastic pool area and great... More

My husband and I were "demobing" and were responsible to pay for our own hotel before leaving V.I. The acting "GM" Mr. Bernard Zaatar, heard about our dilemma and offered a discounted rate to stay at the Blowfish Hotel. We have eaten at all the outlets that Blowfish has to offer but have never stayed at their hotel. We immediately... More

A good hotel in all with well kept room and an array of restaurants. The beds are comfy but the duvets are far too think for a climate as warm as Lagos. The staff are attentive and helpful and blend in well with the establishment. The breakfast buffet is of a good standard and food can be ordered both internally... More

I must say it was a very pleasant surprise. The hotel facilities were very ok- (not luxurious but very acceptable) the staff were helpful and quick to attend to complaints. Decent... More
