“Very good hotel in excelent conditions in Lagos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

The hotel is almost brand new so everything is working and looks good.

The buffet is very good with many options for the 5 day stay.

The pool is also nice and relaxing.

As downsides:
The mattress was not very comfortable (I have back problems so this is important)
The price is high, but once again this is Nigeria and the Hotel is in very good condition

Looking for a clean, professionally run operation and secure hotel, the Southern Sun in Ikoyi, Lagos is the place. Logistically well located. The staff are professional and flexible to client needs. Good kitchen with an array of choice.
Good hotel facilities.

Stayed for 2 and 4 week periods. Overall experience exellent.
Rooms: Spacious, well furnished with sufficient electrical outlets all in good state of repair.
Location: Good ito Lagos mainland and island
Power: Daily outages occur in Lagos, but hotel's back-up supply on within seconds
Amenities: Multiple with high standard of service.
Very impressed with overall service and friendliness from both management and staff - always well dressed/groomed.
I understand why this is the case here - the general manager Mr Mark Loxley personally ensures that guests and visitors are comfortable and being attended to. You see him moving around daily talking to guests, management and staff alike. I have always found him to be appraochable, friendly and very professional.

To Tripadvisor - In tips section you ask for reviews to be done in caps only and once sent it's rejected becase all is done in caps??? Now that is poor service!!

I stayed here for work, 3 nights, because I needed to be near my company's international guests.
Customer Service was on point, no one wasted my time or that of the guests I had booked for, the food is so good there, you get a decent choice of continental and traditional.
My favourite experience however was the bed, my bed was clean and comfortable and the right kinda firm and the curtains blacked out everything..................... Lush!!!
Loved it, will go back.

Room Tip: Ask if you can get a room high up, and ask if any discounts apply, you could get lucky
