I have stayed here at least 3 times. It is a very comfortable, clean and well situated hotel. There is obvious effort to ensure guests have international standard experience. Rooms, service and food are great.

Attentive service accompanied by a dish, off the menu which the chef specially prepared called Aubergine three ways. I've dined in Michelin star restaurants and this was by far... More

The staff was very friendly and the rooms were modern and lovely, however, there was a foul odor on the 3rd floor and I had to switch rooms twice. My third room on the 7th floor was bigger and had no issues with odors. Management said they identified and fixed the issue with the damp odor in my previous two... More

We went for a drink at the Wheatbaker one evening. We chose to sit outside by the pool - the seating is very comfortable, there are fans and an awning if it's too hot. I'd looked on the website and this area looked a bit cramped but it feels spacious and much nicer than the photos suggest. Service is excellent... More

The Wheatbaker is always a small, little bubble in hectic Lagos, Nigeria. Rooms are good and large, fairly noise free at night and overall ok.
