“Best hotel in lagos”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

The wheat baker has got it right for lagos.
Service from the staff is the best in lagos, always friendly and offer proper customer service
The management are always visible and care
The food is of a high standard and when eating with locals and travellers a good mix of food and travellers can happily taste the local specialities.
Rooms are incredible clean
And on top of that prices are fair for lagos
Just improve check in and out efficiency
But well done team

As a regular visitor to Lagos it is always a pleasure staying at the WheatBaker and experiencing the homely environment that they continue to create. From the GM to the receptionist all staff are friendly, efficient and provide a personal service without compromise. The rooms are clean and modern, the restaurant is great and the fitness center provides all you need. If your looking for a good 5 star hotel in Lagos, this is the no.1. Will be returning again soon!

Having stayed in many hotels throughout the world and in particular Nigeria "The Wheatbaker" is everything plus more you expect from a upmarket international boutique hotel. This hotel certainly deserves to be ranked No.1 in Nigeria. From the friendly staff to the General Manager all contributed to make my stay a very enjoyable one. The service was second to none and all members of staff were very efficient from the booking of my exquisite room to the pick up from the airport by one of their security cleared drivers and car. The A La Carte restaurant was a memorable dining experience with a excellent menu and fine wine choice available, the same can be said for the Breakfast and Lunch menu choices. A big plus for anyone considering to stay at "The Wheatbaker" is the location which is in a more upmarket and secure area of Lagos and the ease of access to other business locations within Lagos. The real beauty of the hotel is the fact it is designed to very high modern standards whilst not losing the sight of local Nigerian culture. I would highly recommend staying at "The Wheatbaker" and I am looking forward to returning to it soon

Finally a hotel in Lagos, neigh in Nigeria, that is worth the high price that you have to pay to have a decent place to stay. Over the years I have tried them all in Abuja. Lagos and other cities and this is definitely the best in the country.

Rooms, public spaces and meeting rooms are all of international standard. Service is excellent with a very efficient manager always on hand. I had a problem with the getting an internet connection because of settings on my laptop, but the hotel's IT guy was able to sort it out for me.

Best thing - a Nespresso coffee machine in the room!

This is the Hotel to stay in...... worth the drive from the Airport. Room 1st class.
The manager was at hand to Greet and Meet. The breakfast was spot on.
The only comment on a negative point was the milk was warm for the cereals, i did suggest they put on ice, that was the only fault i could find, but i am being very picky even to mention.
The bar was ok I arrived late so only had a drink did not have dinner,
You would find it hard to find a hotel anywhere in the world to get to this standard. I look forward to my return hopefully spent a bit more time relaxing

Having spent time in most of the other 'western' style hotels in Lagos, The Wheatbaker is by far the most superior. Professional and friendly staff add to its charm and elegance. The breakfast and lunch buffets in the deli are always excellent. The a la carte dining room offers the greatest choice of premium ingredients for its dishes. The conference facilities which I have also had occasion to experience are also well served. I recommend this hotel as it is without doubt the premier hotel in what is Nigeria's commercial, industrial and cultural capital'. The location of the hotel in the most exclusive and safest part of the city is also a major consideration in its favour.
