The staff and amenities were spot on for a little oasis in an otherwise hectic city. I stayed 4 nights while at a friends wedding and do not have one complaint. Very large rooms, good quality bedding and excellent breakfasts. I was surprised at the level of service as well. The small pool is a nice touch too if you... More

My wife and I recently visited the Wheatbaker for lunch and for dinner, also looking at the rooms. We were staying in the Southern Sun, we will not be staying there any more now we have seen the Wheatbaker. Clean, excellent service and good food! Rooms are lovely too.

Small, secure hotel with an intimate feel (the lobby was small, quiet and not overrun with "business men" as is not unusual with the larger hotels). Facilities were clean and comfortable. Internet connection was very good in the lobby, bar and in the room; I was able to remote access into my servers in the US and work uninterrupted -... More

My wife and I spent our first night together at the hotel. As honeymooners, We were given a very warm reception and offered the good weekend rate (USD350) for the luxury room option. The room was very tastefully furnished with a large TV screen and beautiful bathroom architecture. However, on checking out, I was asked to pay for our "complimentary"... More

This hotel is a gem! Small but perfectly formed. Modern design with lots of clean white lines and colour-pop furniture. Lovely staff (way better customer service than most competitor hotels in Lagos). Fresh, clean food in a bright dining room. A plush suite of business meeting rooms. Nice little gym. Huge bedrooms and bathrooms with lovely touches like a Nespresso... More

I stayed at The WheatBaker last year and was impressed with the level of service and staff. Everything ran like clock work, the complementary bottle of wine and fruit basket was the icing on the cake. Keep up the good work guys!!!!

I am coming to Lagos for business more than 20 times during last 4 years and stayed in various hotels. Wheatbaker is by far best hotel in Lagos. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. Breakfast is great. Last week I had great steak in restaurant with some friends.
