It is one of the good hotels in Lagos. It has a magnificient garden where you can walk around. It is located near the sea side but sea is polluted because of the commercial port. Food is good and staff is helpful.

Impressive hotel as you drive in, reception were efficient. The room was spacious and the air conditioning was working well. It was disappointing to find no room safe in my room to secure valuables. Dinner in the restaurant was excellent, way better than the breakfast. Coffee was very poor. Would be happy to stay again but will have to amend my expectations.

In the context of $400 a night Lagos hotels, the Federal Palace offers good value at roughly half that. It’s well located on Victoria Island and is very secure. Breakfasts are good, service levels are generally high and the wifi works well (once you manage to log on). The rooms are starting to get a little tired though, the bathrooms in particular; and the lifts weren’t working as well as all that. The coffee at breakfast was dreadful and there was only one bottle of water in the room – which doesn’t quite work if you can’t even brush your teeth with the tap water.

Nice ambience in reception area with marbled floor. Check in was slow and cumbersome. Staff were sat and made the whole process tedious and it appeared that navigation on their pc desk was longwinded. Despite the fact that I had requested a twin bed room, and also made sure that this information was confirmed at check-in, to my suprise, our room did not have a twin bed. We informed the staff and we were then relocated from room 508 to room 208. Next morning to our shock, the photo attached shows the water from the bath tap. A health harzard!! This was reported to staff and we were told that it could be that some work some was being done on the main drain. A member of the estate came to check the issue. We informed them that if this was the case, why were we not informed. The solution was to let the water run and that it would clear up. On the third day, the attending staff did not believe me, but was reminded by another colleague that the problem had already been previously logged. This issue only occurred with not the bath tap and not the shower water. Berakfast in restaurant: Genrally slow service Staff had to be asked for butter or milk most mornings. Everyone took their time in moving form point a to b, with the exception of Oyin Concierge service worked well and were attentive. Print room's service commended. Chef in lobby restaurant very welcoming. Very slow response to reinburse my credit balance. Took over 2 weeeks.

I had a good time with my family. It was an awesome ambience, staff were professional in there dealings, nice meal and good value for your money. i will always recommend this place for anyone. Thank you.

I was here for a business trip and stayed for 5 days. 4 days I stayed in room 511 and 1 day in room 309. The room with number 511 was very good for Nigerya but other room was terrible. The room was not clean at all, smelled of damp and there were insects in the room. Personnel was polite and helpful. The restaurant was good enough.

Stayed there one night in March. Air conditioning was okay but would not want to test it out during the hotter months. Breakfast was very good and included in the room price that I got ($160/night). I didn’t try the gym and pool but heard it was very nice. Could not get WiFi to work, even with a trip to reception to try and get it sorted out. Two small bottles of water in the room were complimentary which was nice. 1800 Naria for a local beer at the bar. 2000 for a large Heineken. I would recommend the Heineken. 😜 Water in the shower came out brown at first but cleared up after about 5 minutes. Will probably stay again next time I am in Lagos.

One of the few places in Lagos I go to calm myself. I love to sit by the pool side and the sea view always do the magic. Cocktail is always at it’s best and the food is always on point as well. I keep going back.

I had been looking forward to my stay at the Federal Palace and, even now after the fact, am trying to persuade myself (unsuccessfully) that I had a better stay than I did. The room was nice and quiet, reasonably clean and the bed quite comfortable. In the bathroom the hot water arrived quickly and was plentiful and the amenities were adequate. Upon arrival I was told the room with the sea view I requested was not ready and unless I wished to wait for it, only a city view room was available. I was told I could switch rooms at a later time. I chose to wait and after approximately an hour, the room was ready. I had chosen this hotel for the beautiful gardens. As I walked the grounds taking pictures of birds in the trees (no other people or buildings in sight) I was severely admonished by multiple staff members. Management was sympathetic when explaining my use of a (small bridge) camera was the problem and only photography with cell phones was allowed. There were no signs or written policies supporting this rule. The tone and mannerisms of the employees trying to prevent me from taking pictures, even well after I explained the situation to management, was unacceptable and soured my stay by a significant margin. One bright spot was the Food and Beverage staff who were unfailingly warm and friendly, and the service provided of an international standard. The food served in the bar, restaurant and for room service was also quite good. I'm not sure I would stay again.

Circular driveway entry, modern aesthetics inlcuding a casino, pool with sliding boards, modern aesthetics, nice breakfast and dinner buffet, and spacious rooms. This property has a US resort feel. It is located less than a mile, or walking distance to movie theater, restaurants and shops. Hired a car to tour the island- I would skip this tour if it was recommended. Drinks and food were great. Also, there is a peacock that roams the property and it can fly. Made reservations for an ocean view, but they tried to change and increase fees upon arrival. We had to wait extra time for an oceanside room to become available, However, we enjoyed our stay as it offered a nice break from the Nigerian heat.
