Good hotel with good service. Quiet and well protected. Well-appointed rooms and restaurant satisfactory. Service is good. Positive overall. The price is relatively high. I recommend it if you stay in this city.

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.

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.

I was here for a workshop followed by a series of meetings and I had an excellent stay. This is located in a quiet, residential-type neighbourhood but still close enough to the happening Victoria Island area that you don't feel too isolated or out of town. The meeting room for the workshop was set up wonderfully and everyone in the... More

Visited the hotel in company of friends and we were impressed by its understated luxury. It's a home away from home. We all promised to come back again. The food was great. The hotel staff were so courteous. Very inviting ambience.
