We have there couple of times - once for the Italian section (next to the pool) and other time for Indian food (in the reception lobby). food was great both times but i liked the Italian better. If you are a pasta fan, this is the place to go.

I have stayed here twice and both the times i enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is one of those very few hotels in Nigeria where things are well maintained and well kept. The hotel has a great indian chef who makes awesome Indian food. They also have a nice Italian restaurant. I would stay here again.

I really love the blowfish hotel. It's a cute, pink boutique hotel in the middle of Victoria island and near everything. The hotel is in great condition and the staff were all very kind and accommodating to my needs. A very special bracelet of mine actually fell down the elevator shaft and they retrieved it for me. For that, I... More

rooms are not clean, bed sheets are terrible quality and not clean either despite staff is superfriendly. Door to the rooms after the swimming pool hard to open. The swimming pool is nice and nicely visited on Sundays.
