Cliff & Mark are brilliant. I will never stay anywhere else and I say that after I've tried the lot. Great location especially after landing on the morning flights - saves 40mins vs heading towards the others. Great bar, food, rooms, service. Thanks gents!

I am a crew for a Middle Eastern Airline and we stay at this hotel every time we fly to Lagos. I was there about 2 weeks ago and I will be there again tomorrow. I really love the service and the staff was very very friendly. At the restaurant, when I went for dinner, the staff was really warm and welcoming. Chef Bassey he made me something special, which wasnt on the menu.It was very thoughtful of him. Also in the morning breakfast buffet, Mr Lawal was checking every guests that they were satisfied. I felt very welcoming. All staff was trying to help me when I needed something, especially from the reception and housekeeping. I was very impressed. Im always looking forward to see the staff whenever I have Lagos on my roster. I really recommend this hotel for people who are looking for a place to stay in LAGOS.

I have travelled extensively and earlier this year arrived in Lagos on business for the first time. Since then, I have been to a number of the premium hotels here and my preference is the Southern Sun in Ikoyi which I have returned to many times. First and foremost the security at the hotel is visible, professional and effective, ensuring peace of mind when returning from a days work. Secondly the quality of service, whether it is the front desk, bar/restaurant or the rooms is excellent - the staff really take good care of you. The food deserves special mention for its quality and choice. Last but not least is value for money. Lagos is an expensive city but compared to other hotels in this catagory, the Southern Sun is about right.

Room Tip: Rooms X11 and X12 can sometimes be a little gloomy on cloudy days but are slightly larger - your cho...
