We went for a drink at the Wheatbaker one evening. We chose to sit outside by the pool - the seating is very comfortable, there are fans and an awning if it's too hot. I'd looked on the website and this area looked a bit cramped but it feels spacious and much nicer than the photos suggest. Service is excellent...

Service has improved, I think, and you can see the positive impact from management. The food has improved too. Its also the best coffee bar in Lagos by far, making a very nice Cappuccino to...

Truly enjoyed my stay and the service was great as before. An exquisite and beautiful hotel with fantastic hospitality. The decor and art inside and out are simply outstanding and very impressive in this calm and quiet area of Ikoyi, Lagos. Highly recommended

Had dinner with a friend at the Grill on a recent visit to Lagos, who told me that it was the best in Lagos. May be the ambiance was nice, but it was disappointing in so many way. To start with, there were no napkins at any of the table, which was quite surprising for a restaurant of that level....

Dear Benbatouta On the behalf of the entire Wheatbaker Team, I extend to you our most sincere apologies for both the unacceptable absence of napkins and for the fact that your lamb was underdone and not to your exact preference. We shall, of course, investigate what went amiss during your visit. Unfortunately we are at the mercy of the banks...

“I think some of the rooms directly face the buildings next door, so try to ask for a room facing the pool or the street.”

“Rooms are relatively consistent, so the only difference would be distance to/from the lifts (elevators) based on personal preference.”
