The hotel is very clean, classy and without pretension. It is a lovely oasis for a business lunch, dinner and a relaxation spot. The lobby, diner and gardens are well cared for with attentive but unobtrusive staff. The drinks and refreshments were lovely, I'll be back and we may stay overnight for a little break.

Some of the reviews I read were rather "iffy" about the Protea in Ikeja so I was pleasantly surprised by the property. The lobby and bar/restaurant areas are very nice as is the pool area. The rooms are very comfortable too with a really nice bathroom, including a huge and really nice shower. The service is sometimes a little slow...

Have stayed at many African hotels in this group over the years - they have evidently recently "sold out" to Marriott. Consistency seems to be the word here - even with the new unit just opening alongside the existing premises. Do not agree with another reviewer that the noise around the hotel is as problematic as indicated in that review....

This is the only decent hotel near the International airport and on the mainland. About 10 mins from the airport but pray that you don't encounter traffic or else it could turn in to a hour long ride. Decent rooms. Not too spacious and not too small either. But, the hotel is clean and well maintained compared majority of the...
