I can't compare this hotel to others in Lagos, because this was my first visit, but I would return. Check-in was friendly and relatively efficient. My room was huge, too big probably because the TV was too far away to watch from the bed or sofa, and the furniture looked inadequate. as noted by others, the view is lovely. The... More

I spent five days between March and April. Competent and friendly staff, who appeared to love their job. Room was always clean, and the surrounding lagoon was enchanting. The courtyard was a good place to catch a breeze and a cocktail particularly on the jazz night. It was eclectic and entertaining; she sang her heart out!

Ive stayed at this hotel a number of times and always found it to provide a satisfactory busijness standard service, good location and a great view over the river if you ask for it at reception during check in subject to availability.

Impressive location with beautiful views of VI and lagoon, reception staff service is indifferent, barman at the sports bar and the breakfast chef were friendly and accommodating. Food choices are very limited to Chinese, Korean menus, breakfast buffet is also limited - luckily the omelette was well prepared. Rooms are spacious and well appointed if a bit stark.

Location wise this was a dream! Right off the expressway and close to everywhere an international visitor would want to go within minutes and escaping the crazy traffic. The rooms are rather large and service was great with a smile. Wifi sucked unless you asked for a router . Mini bars are complimentary with wine coolers beer and soft drinks.... More

Great friendly staff ... couldn't do enough for me. The rooms were big, and the beds comfortable. Very clean. Great WIFI. Spa style bathroom, with a big soaking tub and walk in shower; with double sinks. Really very comfortable. Very much enjoyed the breakfast, plenty of comfort foods, and Nigerian specialties.
