Hotel was safe, comfortable, no frills, but excellent staff and breakfast. Shower was highlight of the room. Bed could use an upgrade... furniture overall wasn't luxurious, but gets the job done (would be considered 2-3* outside of Africa most likely). Wifi is OK, good enough for basic emails etc, not great for streaming or sending/receiving large files (good luck finding...

stay was excellent. customer service was great. room was clean and food was delicious. sunday brunch was very delicious but I think guest staying in the hotel should be priced half. drinks was off the hook, a little pricy compare to other restaurants.

WAS A LITTLE ABOVE AVERAGE BASE ON MY RECENT EXPERIENCE. CHECKING AND Review Of Rooms Was A Problem Because We Were Informed Its Against Your Policy To Check Room In The Night And I Wonder What’s The Difference Between Day And Night Checking Of Your Rooms Before Your Customers Can Make A Choice Of Stay.

Southern Sun provides a wonderful ambience for relaxation. It is where elegance and efficiency meet. I recommend this hotel for anyone who is looking for comfort, elegance and efficiency in hotel accommodation. The buffet breakfast was good with array of varieties.

We got a discounted company and weekend rate so value was very-very good for the money we paid, especially comparing to other hotels in Nigeria. Definitely our preferable hotel for our next trip to Lagos.

The first room had a bad odor to where I started getting a headache, this was like a strong mildew scent. I was quickly changed to another room, without any issues. The new room's bathroom needed some work on proper cleaning...that is an easy fix. But the remainder of my stay was pleasant. Location is ideal...I would return to this...

I stayed at this hotel in May 2016 and did not hold out much hope but I was definitely "disappointed" in a good way. I am not sure whether my expectations were low but this hotel would hold its own against other 4 star or therabouts hotels. As with most good hotels, the best thing about this hotel is the...

A very good hotel. I enjoyed my stay. I love the gym and sauna. The swimming pool for me is too much in the open. The buffet is very great, with the chocolate cake always out of this world. The rooms are small but very neat. Please do away with that loud AC. Otherwise keep up the good work and...
