Hotel Claridon Port Harcourt
Ranked #16 of 39 Hotels in Port Harcourt
Reviewed 10 July 2014

I unexpectedly moved to this hotel from the Novotel where I was given a smelly room. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of the service at Claridon. The rooms are small but very clean. Staff is helpful and the place is safe. I would return without hesitation.

Stayed: July 2014, travelled on business

I spent two days in Claridon,Port-Harcourt.As i got down from the cab,i found myself facing two doors;with no exit or entrance sign to tell which was which,i opened the door nearest to me and walked in,with my driver at my heels....only to be informed in a very rude and belligerent manner by the security lady sitted inside that 'that door' was for exit not entrance!I apologized and made my way to the front desk where I protested the rudeness to the courteous lady there,she apologized. Meanwhile my driver who had brought in my luggage(Claridon porters apparently had better things to do than bring in guests luggage!) was rudely turned back and made to go outside again,then take the right door!
Aside from the front desk staff who are professional and amiable,the rest of the staff i encountered(room service,security,porters)were all sullen,insolent and unfriendly,I ate dinner twice and both meals were overpriced and not worth it.
The room was spacious and clean however,for me this is the only plus.Bathroom was cramped but it did have toiletries and all the amenities.

Good hotel accommodation in Port Harcourt is at a premium and unless you have the good fortune (and expense account) to stay at one of the more salubrious hotels – Le Meridian, Novotel - you have to plumb for the local lodgings. I have stayed at a couple and one of them was the Claridon. The reception staff are amiable, helpful and friendly enough. There is a small pool in the centre of the block and a small bar adjacent to it and which is situated within the hotels only restaurant. The hotel stands on a main road (can’t remember the name) and is gated with 24 hour security. There is free wifi internet and all rooms have TV’s. I have to say that the TV’s are really very small and TV reception when I was there was very poor.
The rooms? Well, what can I say other than you couldn’t swing the proverbial cat in them. Just enough room to negotiate yourself along the sides and end but not enough room to wheel a trolley case between. I was informed, however, that it is the smoking rooms that are small !!! The food in the hotel isn’t all that appetizing and it all seemed to be very cold. I stayed at the Claridon for one night and then high tailed it to the Genesis Place where I could swing my cat!

Room Tip: Get a non-smoking room

Stayed at the hotel for one night during a business trip to Port Harcourt, as this was my first time in Nigeria I did some research on the Internet prior to leaving Norway. And as I didn't book the hotel myself I didn't know where I was going to stay, so I didn't expect much... But this hotel made my first night in Nigeria a pleasant night.

Staff was friendly and room was spacious, with a big bed, television and a small desk.

The room could have been cleaned better, but it was not too bad.

It's a very quiet hotel, as it's surrounded by a big fence/wall which eliminates the noises from the roads outside. No problem to get a good night sleep in this hotel! Except for when the air condition turns off due to power failures (obviously not the hotels fault...)

The hotel is patrolled by guards, combined with a big wall around the entire hotel this makes it a safe place to stay.
