“Enjoyable Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

I stayed at the Hotel Bon Voyage on a recent visit to Lagos and was pleasantly surprised. I had moved from some disasterous accommodation after 1 night and the Bon Voyage was very comfortable. The very friendly staff upgraded my room to an ocean view and were helpful and courteous throughout my 3 week stay. The food is good and the location is convenient - right in the middle of Victoria Island close to bars and restaurants. I will definitely stay at HBV if I return to Lagos.

Room Tip: The ocean view rooms are very nice - and much bigger.

My NGO/non-profit organization hosted a 15-person meeting here. The hotel was identified for its quality and positive reviews and selected for the reasonable prices we were quoted and the responsiveness of management during the process. Very comfortable, beautiful hotel on Victoria Island. Clean, comfortable rooms, fully-equipped conference facilities, excellent restaurant with complementary buffet breakfast, buffet lunches and dinners, as well as a la carte entrees. Beautiful ocean-side pool and pool bar (with food service) that are both open late: perfect for relaxing after long days. Excellent hotel for business and some additional relaxation. But even more noticeable was the care and attention that every single staff member places on ensuring their guests' satisfaction. The manager, sales and marketing executive, events coordinator, restaurant manager, wait staff, front desk staff, and hotel staff will all go out of their way to welcome you as a friend and ensure that your needs are met, even during the busiest parts of the day. Very competent staff, making Hotel Bon Voyage a very confident choice for work or pleasure.

I stayed in this hotel on business. It was referred to me by another business associate who previously stayed there. To be honest, this hotel surpassed my expectations as a business traveler. Upon my arrival in Lagos, I was promptly retrieved from the airport even after being delayed well over an hour because my luggage wasn't available on the carousel. When I exited the airport, the hotel representative was standing there front and center. During my stay at the hotel, I was always greeted with the highest level of hospitality. Not one staff member passed by me without greeting me with welcoming words and a warm Nigerian smile. ...and the food was EXCELLENT!!! As a small American business owner I definitely recommend this hotel for business travel to Lagos.

The staff were courteous during booking and check in. The hotel was a little hard to locate by local taxi cabs but it turned out to be a true beauty. The landscaping is lovely, rooms are nice with comfortable bed and linens however there was a very offensive odor in the room when we first checked it. We had to open the windows even after an air freshener was used. The pool view rooms are stunning and you get to appreciate nature in its element. The food was good, fair selection and all in all, it was a nice stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the poolside bar. For the hotel, kindly make sure that the room is well v...

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are glad your check in was smooth but really regret the offensive odour you had to deal with. This was as a result of recent maintenance work that was carried out to solve a problem caused by the construction next door. We regret the inconvenience caused and hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. We look forward to seeing you again soon at Hotel Bon Voyage.

I travel to Lagos frequently and wanted a hotel that is quiet and reserved on my recent trip. I found this hotel suited my requirements. I was impressed by its ambiance and found the staff members warm and friendly.
I will definatly used this hotel again in the near future.

When working abroad it is not always easy as one's day tends to be office to hotel to office. I can truly say that the staff at the Hotel Bon Voyage in Lagos made it seem like I was going home, and not to a hotel. The staff are the most friendly of any place I have visited and they certainly make the challenges of working in Lagos a pleasure. The food is great, the pool is so beautiful with the beach back drop. I would not stay anywhere other than here while working in Lagos. A cold Star Beer at the end of a day outside by the pool can not be beat!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the end caps ... they are bigger and very comfortable!

Dear Simon,

It's with great pleasure that we thank you for your review. We have also passed on your appreciation message to the members of staff especially those you highlighted. We are indeed sorry about the slight noise from the construction next door and we have had a word with them to start slightly later in the mornings and finish slightly earlier in the evenings. We have been assured of their full understanding and cooperation. We will also endeavour to improve the speed of service and can assure you that you will see a marked difference on your next visit. We look forward to seeing you with us again soon.
