The blowfish has about 5 restaurants that serve really good food! Japanese, Italian, Nigerian, Indian, Lebanese, the regular western fare etc... the menu was varied and the results delicious. 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

Four high standard restaurants in the hotel and around it owned by the same group... An amazing supermarket facing it!!! A night club within a 100 m distance. A nice... More

Stayed for 3 days at Blowfish in Feb. Given the exorbitant hotel rates in Nigeria , for around $200 this is value for money compared to others. Pros - location if your business is in Victoria Island. Helps avoid the nightmarish traffic in Lagos - clean, comfortable rooms - wide variety of good options to choose from , including indian... More

wonderful stay the Blowfish Hotel, visited Nigeria on a number of occasions on business, and only thought the Blowfish Hotel is the only hotel worth writing a review about. Location is perfect, its safe, and even safer the moment you enter the hotel. The rooms are spacious (where the pool area is) with modern touch, great access to wifi, decent... More

It's not the most modern of hotels but I felt safe, I enjoyed the slightly quirky decoration and the food was good and plentiful. Rooms are a good size, beds are firm but very comfortable, bathrooms are decent even if the whole place feels a bit dated. There was good wifi in the hotel, which is a must but not... More
