Years ago this used to be one of the best in calabar, so when I had a business trip I decided to give them a try. Making reservation online was really easy but the rest still baffles me. On check in my room was dusty and stuffy(so I had to wait in the room while they refreshed it) plates littered...

Good value for money. Centrally located and easily accessible to most places in the city. Hotel has loads of thing to do from gym to pub / club. Customer service is good, nice and friendly. Car service available from hotel or taxi from outside the hotel. Depends on what you can afford

They take minimum 20 mins for room service doesn't matter if you die of thirst or your food is getting cold without drink. This time I checked in and didn't even get...

It is my first time in Calabar. I was lodge at the hotel but not impressed with their facilities; particularly their smaller rooms. The place needs total overhaul. The staff are however very friendly and courteous; trying their best to manage the situation.

I don't know where to start. Channel View is a beehive of activities at Carnival time. They have a club, and a lot of parties and ceremonies are held here, meaning there is ALWAYS a lot of noise. -The pool is really small -The suite they tried to put us in was cagelike and very poorly ventilated (was on the...

Don't be fooled by the exterior. The rooms themselves are an absolute nightmare. Doors don't lock. Light fittings are decrepit. Shower pressure is low, and the toilet is crammed in some narrow cul de sac that only a Victorian child with rickets could fit in. Meals are served with something hilariously called a 'tray charge'. I wanted sheets changed and...

This obviously must have once been a good Hotel but it is basically a dump now. There's a some semblance of renovation but it's half-hearted. It's really a pity since the Hotel has a good location and a serene environment, a good swimming pool and some decent food. It's simply not worth the prices they charge judging by the quality...

Basically nothing works. The rooms are not functioning 100%, problems with light switches, Safety depositi does not work, the wireless internet is very poor. For breakfast there were only 5 cups of coffee, they simply did not have coffee for the breakfast, and if you order a pizza it is frozen pizza from the supermarked. Not a good place to...
