Nice hotel. Good, decent sized rooms with comfortable beds. Friendly and helpful staff. Great food! It is conveniently located for late arrivals and early morning departures. A bit pricey. I stayed for work and would happily do so again.

Pros: This gated hotel is located in Ikeja and is literally 15 mins from the Lagos airport and is quite convenient for early morning departures. It's a gated airportRooms are spacious, very nicely appointed and clean. Linens are pristine. Ample security present on each floor. Lagos can be a tricky with robberies etc so this helped to ease my discomfort....

The hotel was very nice. Good food lovely decor. The king prawns at dinner were amazing! The room was really nice however my room was overlooking the reception and it was quite noisy late at night so if you need a good nights sleep definitely request a room not over reception. Would still definitely recommend this hotel !

Nice hotel, friendly staff and generally good service. Rooms are not large but nicely appointed. Perhaps getting a little tired, but still comfortable. The food is pretty good and the hotel appears safe. The public areas are quite spacious. I stay for work and quite happy to do so.

The hotel is a normal 4*. I just loved the comfy bed, nice big showers. I did not like the breakfast though, it was exactly the same for all the 6 days I was there. The hotel staff are not very friendly. And I don't think the housekeeping dept is managed properly. Often times our rooms were not made up,...

it is a tranquil place in what is a very chaotic place however, the staff are not very friendly and seem to spend time watching you and judging you. The water was not very hot. This a very expensive hotel for what you get for the money

Nothing wrong with the hotel, as supply and demand goes one would expect more for the massive price range, easily 5 star price range back home in ZA but expected in Lagos form oil and gas point of view, hotel has all you need for business, wi fi is good, rooms good, nice bar and lounge

Aircon stopped working at 9pm. one towel provided in bathroom. after I asked for a room refresh/turn down service the person left the "make my room" hanging on door and just changed towels without bothering to close window drapes/curtain. no view, crapped streets to get to hotel. simply over priced and completely avoidable.

I was taken here for an evening drink by the poolside. The pool is located in an inner courtyard with large trees. A very tranquil environment with the gentle sound of water running over the sides of the pool. After a long day in Lagos it is an ideal place to unwind.

Hotel entrance gives a good impression and lobby area is a nice design. Staff are mostly friendly and helpful. Rooms are quite small and cramped with desk taking up a lot of space. Bed comfy and plenty of wardrobe space. Bathroom ok but mine had a very rough finish with marks on mirror and around sink area. Bath looked a...
