I stayed in Chesney for about 4 months in 2012 and have lodged there several times when I was a visitor to Lagos. Chesney is a great place to stay. The rooms are always impeccably cleaned, staff are nice and personal and their native food is awesome! I have stayed in hotels for extended periods before. The usual experience is... More

I needed 15 rooms blocked and when I heard this one hotel could do it, my initial thought was: "no serious hotel will have that many rooms this side of town". But I was happy to be wrong! staff are young and helpful. Rooms are comfy. My friend arrived on his birthday and they offered a nice cake to him.... More

We stayed in 3 hotels during my stay in Nigeria, 2 in Lagos. The Regent Hotel and the Chesney. Our stay at the Chesney was far better than our stay in the Regent. They offered a good breakfast, free wi-fi (although connection wasn't always consistent), good water pressure and hot showers (which were not so easy to find), a full... More

This hotel is perfect for the business traveler. It is located within Victoria Island, one of the best places to live and work within Lagos. The hotel offers free WiFi, it's not that fast though but usable. The hotel staff are always friendly and happy to assist. The kitchen could however do with some improvement. Firstly, most of the foods... More

Was glad to stay here, nice location, good food, pleasant staff and excellent rooms. A good business hotel if you're in Lagos and I wouldn't mind going back. Not too far from some good local bars and restaurants and we felt safe enough.

Stayed here for an afternoon while on a trip to Nigeria for work. Never stayed the night but the rooms are fantastic and the place is very very chilled out. The staff who takes your bags to your room don't expect a tip like most places. One of the best hotels I've ever stayed at, and defo the best hotel... More

Beautiful, Mordern, clean and secured hotel in a great location in Victoria Island. Friendly staff, spacious room, good rate in comparison to hotel standard in Nigeria. Could not find any fault with this hotel, look forward to visiting again.

One of the friendliest hotels I have come across in a while. The staff are courteous and have a big smile at all times and ever willing to serve even at odd hours. The food is good, the breakfast buffet has a nice mix of continental and local cuisine and the rooms are comfortable, cosy and clean. Due to space... More

From the reception to the room service, every thing here had a touch of class. The staff were accommodating and very friendly and were on hand to make the guest feel at home. I love the food and the bar is filled with exotic drinks. The rooms are spacious and well lit and enough room for my kids. Best part... More
