The service was efficient, friendly and courteous and the food was really tasty. I made use of the gym which is very good. The only snag was the internet which was sometimes a bit erratic otherwise I would have given them a 4 star rating.

Things look positive upon arrival...nice new lobby area and funky bar area. However the desk staff looked less than enthused and barely spoke to us during check-in and just handed us our keys without a word...not a great start. We were given a welcome juice drink, served in a dirty glass... Things get worse when you go to the rooms:...

Hotel needs major overhaul and updating. Rooms are tired. Ancient and noisy air-conditioning units a major issue. Public areas better. Overall, not up to the standard expected from a Southern Sun group hotel.

Well located, good wifi, and friendly attentive staff. A good choice for a working base. Overall the hotel could do with some decor freshining up, - most notable in the air conditioning units, which are noisy, - and need to be upgraded. I would however happily stay again.

Great value for money. I would give 5 out of 5 if the bathroom was a bit bigger and perhaps with a bath, but all in all great hotel in ikoyi. Good choices for breakfast with fresh fruit/yoghurt and the more heavy options. The gym was also nice and clean with treadmills overlooking the pool area.
