First time at the Blowfish, and I regard it as a bit of a find. As a regular visitor to Lagos, I'm often disappointed by the standard of even well known hotels, especially when it comes to the food offer. The chef at the Blowfish obviously takes pride in the food, and offers a mix of continental, indian, thai and...

I would most definitely recommend it to colleagues and come...

I have stayed 3 times on the past visits to Lagos and have learned what to do and not to do in this hotel. Rooms are comfortable and peaceful - allowing a good night sleep. Spend a little extra for a deluxe room for added comfort. The main restaurant /breakfast room ...has appalling service and seems disjointed. On the contrary...

A friend that was at the hotel for a group dinner late last year told me about the Blowfish. I immediately went on tripadvisor and saw all the positive reviews and also the very few negatives - we live in an imperfect world, I thought. I decided to check it out. I called up the hotel on a Tuesday and...

Stayed for 2 nights at the Blowfish Hotel when on a business trip to Lagos. Room rates are reasonable and the quality of food was good with a wide selection of Mediterranean, Italian, Indian and Thai cuisine served at the inside restaurant, by the pool bar or at the outside Italian restaurant "La Veranda". I was also informed that there...
