Everything is old and in the need of repair.Gym and Pool Arena Not usable. However it is well guarded and it feels Safe. In the evening there are 'Ladys' on the terrace which are obviously doing 'business'. Others are being guided to the rooms by hotel personell. This is not acceptable for me.

Ok- I am hre on a business trip. The pictures made us pick thi hotel for a 4 days stay. When we arrived, I was surprised how old and worn off this place is. I assumed they did not perform any maintenance since the opening decades ago. Let me highlight two points. A) The pool is non existent. It is...

Rooms are neat and spacious. Good buffet breakfast. Clean environment. Has many halls down stairs for events. On Sundays, some of the halls are rented out to churches (2 or 3 different churches). The halls are well soundproofed as you do not hear the noises from the churches as they sing and praise-worship. The people are friendly. Same place to...

Stayed in Novotel Port Harcourt,in room 401 seriously underwhelmed by hotel, poor customer service from the evening receptionist who apparently judge you, no help with bags, kept waiting at reception full pre- payments through association before arrival. Rooms overpriced, only good thing about hotel is the breakfast and security. I have stayed at cheaper hotels in Nigeria and elsewhere and...

Good news, the refurbishment of the rooms has started. according the pictures must be nice. Food at the bar is not great but the steak in the restaurant is very nice with a good choice of wine.

I normally stay at Le Meridien in Port Harcourt but opted for the Novotel on this occasion for the pool. This was a bad choice - the hotel is only fourteen years old and certainly has more outdoor space than Le Meridien. However the pool is area is now beyond repair with chipped tiles, dirty water, no filters and no...

Pretends to be 4-star but appears like 3-star or less. Carpet is dirty. Small pillows on bed. Bathroom fittings classy and neat, but bath basin is round and very slippery so showering is a serious balancing affair. Situated close to Nav Base but very far from airport. Room rate is shockingly high - this is by far the most expensive...
