On the regret side, the staff are friendly and cheerful. They've been consistently the positive side of the property. The relief is...

I was a bit worried when I was told that I will be staying in this hotel. This was because I usually see the tall run down building from the outside. But I was suprised to see a new hotel building within the compound when I arrived. I spent 5 days in the Hotel during an exhibition within the hotel...

Our daughter's wedding reception was held in the marquee because she wanted the backdrop of the hotel grounds in the wedding pictures. It helped of course that the recently renovated hotel has had the gardens beautifully landscaped into an ethereal experience with the Lagos Port and lagoon providing an unforgettable vision of nature. Add to this the fantastic service we...

Lovely, relaxing hotel in a city which is challenging. Reception staff helpful, room large and clean. Pool lovely and refreshing. That said, the food and drink were alarmingly expensive. Very good breakfast
