This is probably an OK hotel for Nigeria. The room was functional, the bed was comfortable enough just nothing memorable about the whole experience. The meal in the restaurant was good but plain. The main issue I had was I was overcharged and rather than refund my credit card they presented me with a cash refund at a ridiculous exchange... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your review and we regret that you heard this noise. Normally, our noisy maintenance work is done only between 17h30 and 20h30 except for an emergency.

The Hotel pours on an 80's charm with its 2 big towers and its wide hall ways which look a little run down.

For such a big hotel, I have to commend their clean rooms. I did not find a thing to complain about. The food was really good too. I wanted an exceptional weekend away and to be sure, this hotel could be said to be the best in Port Harcourt. I shall definitely come back sometime.
