Blowfish is a gem in Lagos. really great food, and even better service. would certainly recommend if you're new in town and looking to find a nice hotel in the heart of Victoria Island. Wonderful interiors, very good service and some excellent dining too, must recommend the hotel's Purple Restaurant for the Thai dishes. Very reasonably priced too for a...

Perfect mid-range place to stay in Lagos. Good location close to supermarkets, dining and nightlife. Would recommend to a friend. Rooms are a bit small but comfortable. The restaurants on site are very good with the Italian being exceptional, in my opinion.

The crew is very helpful and the acommodations were ok. Besides the power outage problem they have throughout the country, I was able to have a fair internet access, nice restaurants inside (I had dinner at the italian one, a great Seafood risotto). Recommended!

This Hotel is good value for money but this may be the problem, as the detail is seriously lacking. At breakfast, range and quantity is lacking, crockery & cutlery not readily available, cups, saucers, teaspoons etc you need to hunt for. Service from staff is poor, they don't approach you for service, you have to keep looking for them. In...

Generally disappointed with the rooms I have to admit. Heard and expected a lot from this hotel but was disappointed. Room was small , dark and scruffy. Spent most of the day by the pool which was great as they had music and lots of sun which kept up relaxed and feeling easy . Restaurant and food was good too....

Stayed in a room on the second floor (1st for them) with a balcony. The view overlooked the parking lot, so there wasn't anything to see, but the bed was fine and the staff were very friendly and attentive. The pool was clean and just big enough to swim laps (at least for me) though whatever chemicals they used stung...

We have there couple of times - once for the Italian section (next to the pool) and other time for Indian food (in the reception lobby). food was great both times but i liked the Italian better. If you are a pasta fan, this is the place to go.
