This is an old facility struggling to meet up with modern requirement. The hotel is located in a fantastic environment with adequate comfort with maximum security. The rooms are spacious and staff are trying to make guess happy.

The Kwara Hotel was built during the Gowon administration. It has had minimal attention since the late 1970s and 1980s. Although the staff does their best to help make you feel welcome, the hotel is in shambles--all of the photos on their website are either dated or photoshopped. The ghosts of the past haunt every corner and the decor is...

This is obviously on of the first generation luxury hotels. the setting is however not so luxurious again. The rooms are spacious but the drain in my room was leaking. there was power rationing during the day. The staff members are putting in a good effort but wifi was erratic, but the place needs some serious overhauling. The noise from...

The restaurant mostly does not have what is on the menu but the kitchen tries hard to find acceptable alternatives. The rooms are clean but rundown so are the towels and bedding. A/C works fine and there is always...

Dirt. Dirt. Dirt. The bed smelled of urine. The pillows had slobber stains all over them. The first two rooms that sent us to weren't cleaned and ready. The bathroom is so dirty that you will end up skipping the shower. Just don;t stay here.

This hotel is a mixed bag of goodness and sloppiness. Location wise, it is central, secure and has the potential to be a great hotel. During our stay the fridge was dirty, the hot water did not run and the bedsheets had a stain. There was no bath tub and the shower did not have a shower tray, so water...

We paid over $100 per night which is outragious. They make you pay in advance and will not refund you if you decide the place is disgusting and want o move out. We were in 3 rooms, each of them very, very dirty. Sticky stuff on desks, spilt milk on cupboard door in two rooms. Light switches black with dirt....

We stayed at the kwara hotel for five days. This Beacon in Ilorin needs attention if they want tourists to come and stay with them or return to Ilorin again. The bathroom needs attention. The toilet does not have a rim, everything is loose or broken. The hot water is very scarce. Breakfast, we'll there is almost no breakfast, just...
