it was my first time in lagos and I was worried about the quality of hotel , food etc...
to my pleasant surprise the moorhouse is lovely, very friendly staff, very nice room, air conditioning worked mosted of the time and kept the room at a nice temperature for me at least. The staff where very friendly and very respectful,
Room was clean, tv was good, minibar was lightly stocked but adequate for most needs. Room service was very quick and any problem I had was tended to efficiently by polite staff.
Food wise, breakfast was great try the steamed potatoes!!! no complaints whatsoever... dinner was ok, it is the same with most hotel food I find so its not a negative but if you do not want to venture out the food will suffice. a personal choice of mine was the Mexican burger ;) but the fries kept coming out luke warm so watch that but the spaghetti Bolognese was good and hot.
Service is the bar sometimes was slow, out of the 5 days I stay there only one night did I have to wait an hour for my drink and food, this is something that could be improved on but I will say this it was very busy but still an hour is excessive. of the other nights service was prompt friendly and efficient.
Two minotr negatives i will call out Internet was not great and varied greatly as you wen out the hotel someone did not put in a proper wireless controller to manage it correctly :)
Powercuts this is not the hotel's fault but is annoying, several times trying to watch tv and the power would go, I ended up watching on my tablet.
if I was coming back I would stay here again happily... so do try it out, well protected, well served close to the island and shopping, restaurants and cinemas.
