Very serene environment away from all the hustle and bustle: this is the biggest plus. It's ideal for business meetings. It actually looks more like a nice house on the outside. Menu is quite Nigerian - good options but for those who aren't used to very spicy Nigerian-style food this may be a challenge, unless of course you are adventurous. Overall, quite decent.

Stayed two different nights here, had two completely different experiences: First yime was small humid room with bathroom the size of an airplane WC and water temperature and pressure varied between boiling and cold, no in-between. Worst bit was finding an insect crawling on me in the middle of the night. Took staff almost an hour to bring me a hairdryer! Breakfast was adequate but unappeteising for a Western palate, the Nigerian dish I tried was lukewarm, which was off-putting. My second stay I had a room twice the size of the previous one, with a spacious bathroom. However, I was exhausted and in need of a shower after all-day travel, so a bit disconcerted that they needed to do plumbing for over an hour after I arrived. Room also smelled very strongly of something synthetic and floral, with an undertone of strong insecticide. But was comfortable so I tried to ignore the pong. Bathroom was much better but some tiling was left undone. Dinner was good and breakfast, once again, adequate. The pool was refreshing. Fitness centre dilapidated and dirty. I was told I was accommodated here due to its proximity to airport, but there is a much higher rated chain hotel nearer to airport at about half the cost of the rack rates here. Might stay here again if I could be assured of the better room, but the traffic to Lagos Island and VI make it unsuitable if working in either of those locations.

Overall I would rate my stay poor but different factors were all over the spectrum from terrible to excellent. Stayed here for 5-6 weeks while working in GRA, Ikeja. Was a business trip so my company organised all the administration. Think it is important to note that I am a South African so that my comments about the menu options can be taken relatively. Positives: - Staff are very friendly and helpful - Management extremely attentive and really did try to fix the issues - Pool area was very comfortable to relax in after work - Grounds well kept and spacious providing a relaxing atmosphere to come back to in the evenings - Room very spacious Negatives: - Fitness centre is very poor; equipment not functioning at all, weights fell apart in my hands - Internet was very poor; extremely slow (average below 1MBPS, max 2MBPS) and connection would drop constantly. Management did try to fix this by providing me with a WIFI device but was not better. - Menu was limited in options available for a Western guest - Diagnosed with case of bacterial infection as a result of something I consumed. Considering that I ate most of my meals at the hotel and had a mixed meat soup the day before, these two might be connected - Hotel underwent scheduled fumigation. I was not notified that this was going to happen and had a rather unpleasant experience as the fumes seeped into my room and I exited the room to find staff members walking around with face masks. This was the final straw that caused me to move hotels as this is a basic health and safety issue. Even though the food issue and fumigation incident were very severe in nature, the willingness of management to assist causes me to rate it as poor and not terrible.

Nice and modern rooms with wifi, but with not so many amenities (no hairdryer, fridge with one small bottle of water per day). The toilet seat in my room was leaving to the floor occasionally. The staff at the reception were not very welcoming or helpful. Food at the restaurant ok if you chose the buffet, but a la carte not recommended.
