This hotel is perfectly positioned for access to the International Airport although, as it is on a dual carriageway access to it from the International Airport would not be so easy.
I stayed in Room 216 and this was clean and presentable, but not as large as I would have expected.
It is a NON SMOKING hotel. Note if you smoke then you will have to do so in the car park. But as a non smoker I found the lack of 'smokers smell' in the bed room a nice surprise.
Reception was in a large atrium the height of the hotel and lifts work well.
There is a flat screen TV in the room, with Nigerian and South African TV chanels, and International news channels.
Electricity was constant, and backup generators started promptly once there were power cuts.
There is a shower in the room with high pressure water and no bath. The shower room was clean and tidy.
Bedsheet linen was immaculate and rooms are airconditioned, but you can hear some airport noise, despite the windows being closed.
I asked for a morning call and was impressed to receive this at exactly the time requested.
The hotel is accessed via double security gates and reception is secured internally with a steel grill. All in all I got the impression that security is taken seriously here.
The pool area and volleyball court is attractive and clean, and I used the hotel computers for internet access these were ok, but the keyboard lettering was worn on the keys.
Breakfast was ok and offered a Nigerian, and English (Bacon and Egg). There was no orange juice or water at breakfast which was unusual, but tea/coffee was provided.
There are attendant conference rooms for those wanting to use such facilities.All in all a good experience.
