Nice hotel to stay for business. Friendly staff, very good seafood and good breakfast. Please don't fault to order their Jumbo Prawns with steamed vegetables. Very reliable wifi in rooms and lobby/restaurant. Fair room rates and walking distance to Total deep water building located at Eko towers.

The staff are second to none in terms of helpfulness and proactive. The room was fine. There is a good casual sitting area for meeting people. Food is very good (breakfast, dinner). However they failed to make my 3.30 am wake up call for the plane - luckily my phone alarm worked!

Thank you for your positive review and I will pass on your great food comments to the kitchen. I do apologize regarding your wake up call not being done, a full investigation has been conducted and all staff retrained on their procedures to follow so this will not occur again. We do hope to welcome you back soon. More

I was a guest at the Protea Hotel, Victoria Island, for 4 weeks while on business. The hotel is fairly small, (around 60 rooms???), but is huge on customer service! The General Manager, TIm, and the Executive Chef, Morne, set the example for the hotel staff and were visible from early morning breakfasts through the day until late evening. All... More

We stayed at another hotel on Victoria Island which was shocking. Someone recommended Protea Hotel. I went to check it out and decided to move my whole team there. The rooms are awesome, but the showers are world class. I have to say that the executive chef Morne really knows his way around the kitchen and the fact that all... More

Basic business hotel but serves the purpose and better service than some of the others we have stayed at. Good value for money and decent breakfast. Has the usual power problems faced by Lagos but they seem to cope extremely well. Good location to handle Lagos traffic as well

Good ambience for a meeting. Coffee breaks by the pool, fantastic. Especially when you get the feel of waves by the beach, very soothing to a hardworked brain. Evening dinner, superb with a pianist serenading my meals. You wanna know more, spend a night there.
