“Outstanding Hotel in Lagos”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

I stayed at the Wheatbaker for five days and have nothing but praise for the hotel. I would say people are friendly, especially in this hotel, staff helped with all information I needed, service was good and quality of food was more than good.

Positives:
1. Good security, which is a must in Lagos.
2. Comfortable room, nice king size bed, spacious and decently equipped bathroom, all other basic amenities like swimming pool, gym and restaurant fully functional and well maintained.
3. Good food and decent menu.
4. Located in Ikoyi which is not too far from main business locations in city.
5. Clean and well sanitized.
6. Helpful staff.

I have, during the past year, used the Wheatbaker on many occasions - for social as well as for business purposes. I have experienced the service as very good and the catering of good quality. Simon Grindrod, the GM, and his team is always available to offer assistance where and when needed. They have good knowledge of the local environment and shares this information appropriately. I would certainly recommennd The Wheatbaker Hotel in Lagos.

The best hotel in Lagos by far. The rooms are very comfortable, and are complete with their own coffee machine. The bathrooms are luxurious. The buffet restaurant has top quality food and a tremendous menu. Reception staff are very friendly and efficient, as are the doormen and bell hops. Rooms are competitively priced for Lagos, though bar prices can be a little expensive. No complaints.

We have been making the long trip to Lagos on business for years, having stayed in at least 8 different hotels. The Wheatbaker tops them all, not just in comfort and cuisine, but in the highly trained staff. They listen, they understand the issue and they come up with a solution. The cost of good hotels in Lagos is high, but The Wheatbaker provides a good return on the investment.

[This review is only for the restaurant, not the hotel.]
The Wheatbaker was a nice restaurant. For Lagos. But it probably wouldn't make it on the level that it is trying to exist in any other major city. It was clean, and the food was decent, and the selection was more than fair. The service was very good; however, I attribute that more to the waiters' recognition of my travel companion, rather than just good service, since I saw others vying unsucessfully for their attention.
The atmosphere was noisy and a bit crowded. When full, and it appeared the type of locale that was ALWAYS full, it was a bit uncomfortable manipulating the buffet without hitting patrons' tables.
The restaurant gave the impression of trying too hard to be the "it" place to be and be seen. The patrons obviously wanted to be seen as being in an extremely upscale and haute couture restaurant, and this one didn't fit the bill. It wasn't a bad restaurant - far from it - but it was rather pedestrian considering the prices it charged and the attitude it attempted to present.

Being a first time visitor to the city of Lagos my friends and I decided to stop in at the Wheatbaker for something to eat. I was so impressed with the service and the way in which the staff and management made us feel so welcomed we decided that we would book for dinner the next day. The spread layed out for dinner was beyond comprehension, from the starters through to desert and coffes served there was absolutely nothing to complain about, we even got a chance to have a taste of the local dishes, how awesome. What was even more astounding is that the General Manager went around greeting all guest making sure we are happy and being looked after. Thumbs up to the Management and staff at the Wheatbaker for a superb dinner and exceptional good service.
