The Wheatbaker is a true luxury hotel in the centre Lagos. Rooms are modern and comfortable, food is excellent and staff are friendly. Gym is well equipped with everything you need. Location is perfect and drivers recommended by the hotel are trustworthy. I recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Lagos.

I am writing this review into the second week of my second stay at the Wheatbaker. The first time was a couple of weeks ago. It was then my first visit to Nigeria, and I did not know what to expect. Any misgivings I had were quickly dispelled. As a woman travelling alone on business, I could not have asked... More

Two of us went early one evening for dinner. It's good for couples or quiet business discussions and the food and service was international standard. The wheatbaker is a boutique hotel in Ikoyi close to Banana Island so it's in the most upmarket part of the town and the door reflects all that. Prices are pretty high too but not... More

My husband and I took a short breaks here twice last year. Both times, it was awesome. I love this hotel. It's out of the way, not huge, the decor is contemporary and calming and the food is good! What else do you need? There is a pool, though I didn't use it. I do know people like to hang... More

A beautiful, tastefully furnished hotel located in a quite part of Ikoyi, Lagos. It has some of the most amazing hotel food ever, especially for meat lovers. The complimentary inclusive breakfast is best experienced and on its own merit is reason enough to visit the hotel. Prices are steep but are fair against other comparator establishments. Staff are well trained,... More

This was my first visit - business - to Nigeria (and to the African continent). I must admit that the trip was with some apprehension. And this hotel put me at ease. Clean, excellent service, and well-secured. I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed in this hotel for business and would definitely recommend it to anyone traveling to lagos for business. Rooms are clean and well managed. Even though a little small on long term stays. Breakfast has good selection and the coffee is great.

Stayed this week for the first time at The Wheatbaker and must say, what a gem. Excellent facilities, great breakfast and well apointed rooms. Definitely will return and can easily recommend as the preferred hotel in Lagos.

There is no place better to wind down after the hassle of the Lagos traffic. Tranquility in the middle of Lagos is a luxury and there is no better luxury than the Wheatbaker. Service impeccable, security excellent. For such a small place it has a lot to offer. See you again later this year.
