Second time in this hotel in a few months. It is really a pleasure to come back and to appreciate the consistency of the hospitality service provided. Great staff, perfect and professional management ready to answer to all client's needs. Good interiors, perfect status of maintenance and cleaning. Don't miss it if you are in Lagos.

Extremely well run hotel, with excellent staff and a great location. A smaller hotel where you feel safe and welcome, where everything works, and attention to detail is admirable. Tastefully decorated and with food and beverage quality you would expect from a hotel managed by a high end South African group.

I stayed at Wheatbaker early May... As those who have been to Lagos will know the hotels are extremely over-priced for what they are. I'd say even the so called best hotels are no more than 3-4 star hotels (in the west) but priced more than some 5 star hotels in the West. I stayed at Southern Sun which was... More

The Wheatbaker is an excellently located hotel in Ikoyi, Lagos. Quiet, off the main drag and safe, the hotel is well laid out. The restaurant area is small, but functional. The swimming pool is fair sized and located close to the rooms and the restaurant. Th reception area has some lounge chairs/ tables and can be used for informal small... More

Wheatbaker should without question be the hotel of choice in Nigeria. Good food, friendly and well trained staff, and competitive pricing.... Tranquil setting at the pool meant some peace and quiet. Easy access to VI and Ikoyi, which was exactly what I required. Love the place....

I've stayed in the Wheatbaker several times in 2013 / 2014. From the moment I arrive, I am made feel so welcome, and the staff could not do more for guests.
