A group of friends and myself decided to have breakfast at the hotel this morning. It was excellent. There was not one thing that was missing from the variety. I enjoyed the salmon, it was so fresh. Bacon, chicken livers, a selection of cheeses and imported meats. The staff were excellent, the chef Wayne took the time sit with us... More

Lovely hotel, clean and friendly. Limited menu for dinner but breakfast buffet is very good. I had an issue with my room which was sorted very quickly and very efficiently. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Will always stay here when on business in Lagos.

That hotel has a soul. And its shown in every corner. Old books are placed on high shelves reaching up to the ceiling. Books are different and depending on your interests, select what you're interested in and read it while lying on a lounger by the pool. On Valentine's Day I got a red rose. So lovely gift!

I've been traveling to Lagos for 15 years and nothing can beat the Protea Leadway in Ikeja for personalised service, excellent food and location. All guaranteed by the personal attention to detail that the GM Dean Ogilvy and his team give. Don't bother trying anything else, but book early.
