8/10 Very good

The hotel is certainly one of the better hotels in Lagos. The rooms were well appointed and the conference facilities were good. Food was a bit repetitive and staff were sometimes a bit aggressive in trying to push you to buy drinks or food in the bar, lounge and pool areas, when all you want to do is just have a peaceful relaxing time. The impression created was that staff must use every opportunity to maximise revenues. I was also not impressed with the laundry service. Given the cost for washing and pressing, I was surprised to discover that they use cheap key soap for the washing, which came back smelling not too good.

Staff was great, very helpful and friendly. It's a secured property with multiple onsite security guards onsite. Breakfast and dinner buffet was a mixture of local Nigerian dishes and international foods -- good selection. At the moment, I can't think of a negative remark. It's my second stay at the property.
