I have stayed here twice and both the times i enjoyed my stay at this hotel. It is one of those very few hotels in Nigeria where things are well maintained and well kept. The hotel has a great indian chef who makes awesome Indian food. They also have a nice Italian restaurant. I would stay here again.

The hotel is in great condition and the staff were all very kind and accommodating to my needs. A very special bracelet of mine actually fell down the elevator shaft and they retrieved it for me. For that, I...

There were some good points and bad points about this hotel, but all things considered I really liked it. Hands down the best part of this hotel are the staff. They are so friendly and welcoming and can't do enough for you. They are polite and yet not stiff and formal (special mention to Henry, Shakiru, and Douglas - great...

We had gone to this place on invitation by some friends. We had tried the spring rolls, Mutton biryani and Pollo Al Limone was perfect. The Ravioli was passable though. Chapman drink was refreshing. The indoor ambience was good and the outddor near the pool was even better.
