I have a high-quality experience with Blowfish Group, including the hotel, restaurants and the supermarket. It's a very secure environment, food is delicious, products at the supermarket are reliable and the prices are available for all customers. The restaurants are recommended for business meetings, private events.

Very Close to restaurants and shops on victoria island. The staff and really friendly and helpful, I believe this hotel is owned by a Lebanese. The room and bed is clean. You really get value for you money is this hotel. Although not as luxuries as some of the other hotels in Lagos, it's cozy and not so commercial

It is my first time and I loved every tiny bit, from scenery, quiet environment, delicious meal and the good part of the meal was the fact that you have different choices from thai to Indian, Chinese . just name it. You need to be there to get the chills I got.

Having stayed at most big-brand hotels in Lagos over the years, this is now my regular base when I am in town. Blowfish is a lot more affordable than most hotels here and still provides everything you need. I feel quite at home there – the staff take excellent care of you, the Lebanese owners are always around and looking after... More

Very much looking forward to next visit. Quiet and clean hotel. Was recommended this hotel for work. Breakfast a bit sparse. Dinner selection by pool is top value. Star beer is exceptional to enjoy. Will come back.
