The Spa at the Wheatbaker is an oasis! The decor is very elegant, well equipped and very clean. The beautiful floral arrangement at the reception desk, the soothing background music and signature spa scent immediately transport the spirit! The Spa Team ooze calm indulgence and efficiency. Elemis facial products have their impact but in their expert hands another five years... More

This is the best hotel I've stayed at in Lagos. The rooms are spacious, food is good, staff are attentive, and mgmt. is available to assist as needed. Security is also very high. Prices are on the high side but worth it in my opinion.

Been travelling to Lagos for more than 10 years now, stayed at the top hotels in Town and first time at Wheatbaker has been the best experience so far. Simon and his team has treated me like a family. Monish Lakhani - UAE

As very frequent business traveller I have a very sense to judge for the price / performance ratio of a hotel. First impression (check-in, room appearance) was positive but at night my room was not suitable for a good sleep - by far to noisy due to running power generators at the hotel (permanent shortage of general power supply).

Nice hotel with attentive staff and great service. Steaks and ribs are top rate (much better than anything else in Lagos by a long shot) and they have a good wine selection. It's a haven amidst the chaos.

The hotel's excellently placed. Service second to none. The restaurant's very, very good value for money. Parking a bit difficult because of a function in the hotel when we went there. Good wifi service. Will definitely recommend.

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in, and I spend about 80-90 nights a year in hotels! Great welcome at gate, door staff and at reception. Really high security, but low key so not intrusive. Room was pretty close to perfect. Great comfortable bed, with high quality bedding. AC worked well, and room was spotless. Free wifi... More
