Nice hotel to be, good rooms and environment, you can also decide to take a room with the water view. The only annoying part is having to request for parking fee always before you are allowed to drive out even when you are on a visit

The location was good, the room was good, the breakfast was excellent, the wifi connection was ok. So, why am I not going to stay here again? The trouble started when I was entering the hotel with two bottles of water, bought from the neighbouring supermarket. Security at the entrance stopped me, saying that I wasn't allowed to bring any food or drink from outside into the hotel, as the same stuff was available in the hotel at extortionate rates. I told them that I hadn't seen any notice anywhere saying I couldn't do this. They called the manager, made me stand around in the lobby for 5 minutes till the manager came. The manager finally arrived, repeated the same thing, and told me that as a special favour he will allow the stuff I had bought, but he would not allow this in future. Well, I went into the room, read through the small print of the entire directory of services, came back to the lobby and went all around looking for any guest notices. I then went to the reception and told the lady at the counter about my experience. She repeated that of course I was not allowed to bring outside food or drink including water. I told her to a) show me the relevant house guest rules which said that I couldn't and b) if such rules were there, where were these displayed for the guests to be aware beforehand. She went into the back office and, after some time, came back with the manager, who again gave the same argument. I told him that I did not want to hear his arguments, I just wanted to see the house rules which prevented me from buying water from outside and bringing it into the hotel. Stumped for words, he said that he will allow me to bring in water during my stay, but not during any future stays. I responded that I was not interested in ever staying in his hotel in future, but if I did, I would continue bringing water from outside unless he had new house rules printed in the directory of services and displayed prominently for guests in the lobby. As a business and leisure traveller, I have travelled across the world and have stayed in hotels of all levels, ratings and service quality. But never ever have I had such an experience of hotel personnel arguing without justification and making me feel like a criminal for bringing in two bottles of water from outside.

We came to nigeria to visit family and rather than fly to Abuja to enjoy the last days there my uncle recommend this hotel. From the moment we check in I felt like this was a real holiday that me my husband and young son could enjoy. The lobby was amazing and big we met all our friends there with no one to bother us. The breakfast was great anything you wanted they had. The room was large and perfect for a family. We had a great view of the harbour. The outside grounds was beautiful from the peacocks to the swim area that my son loved to the great views. I have recommended this hotel to many and will definitely visit again when I come to nigeria

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights to enjoy our remaining time in nigeria after spending time with family. I have to say this hotel was amazing the lobby was beautiful the breakfast was yummy so many different things on offer. The room was a great size for a family of 3 and the staff was well mannered and friendly. I will definitely come and stay again when I come to nigeria

Stayed 10 days while visiting our office in Lagos. Excellent location with a sea view. Very high service standards, from the moment you step into the lobby. Frontdesk is very helpfull and did a good job meeting our request. The pool club is nice, quiet during the week but even in the weekend when most pool club members are visiting it never felt crowded. The pool could have been cleaner though. Food- and Beverage Manager George Dairy was very kind and helpfull and did everything he could to ensure that our stay was as pleasant as possible. Certainly a recommendable hotel in this fantastic city!

First time stayed at this hotel. Stay was better than I expected. Nice lobby, helpful and courteous staff one even recognized me by name. Peacocks and peahens give you company for breakfast. Meals are average and breakfast is a lack luster affair as you have to summon the waiters to get you tea. Fruits are not replenished though the eggs were good. Nice location if you are offered a room with a view. Lots of other choices in Lagos hence may or maybe stay here next time.

The rooms and the food are very and the rate i got was good value for money when I stayed. Location is excellent for VI. Staff well trained and accommodating. Pool is very nice and general setting with the garden pleasant.

I stayed here for my last night in Lagos, I have to say that it still remains as charming as ever. The rooms feel slightly dated however, and due to that fact, it felt overpriced. Also for the modern traveller, it was hard to locate enough sockets for devices to be charged. A revamp and modernisation could be the difference. Also wifi was a bit patchy. However breakfast and the checking in area were amazing. Also felt secure due to the armed security.

Thank you to the federal palace hotel and casino for a fantastic weekend, it has always been a home away from home. A shout out to your staff and management for there friendly nature and always ready to assist. I would recommend your hotel to anyone perfectly located and amazing premises, Thank you Mr David Kiegl for running such and amazing hotel.
