It's a lovely boutique hotel in the heart of Victoria Island. Had a nice time when I was in Lagos for business. Friendly staff, hotel is cosy, the room is clean and the food is very good. Highly recommended!

By now, we all know how I love and appreciate a good bed. This one was superb. So comfortable, so soft, so warm, so Mmmmm. It's situated at the quiet end of Saka Tinubu. They've got excellent service, great food, the place is beautiful. I didn't even expect to find such a peaceful place around there. It's a bit more... More

The rooms are always impeccably cleaned, staff are nice and personal and their native food is awesome! I have stayed in hotels for extended periods before. The usual experience is... More

I needed 15 rooms blocked and when I heard this one hotel could do it, my initial thought was: "no serious hotel will have that many rooms this side of town". But I was happy to be wrong! staff are young and helpful. Rooms are comfy. My friend arrived on his birthday and they offered a nice cake to him.... More

We stayed in 3 hotels during my stay in Nigeria, 2 in Lagos. The Regent Hotel and the Chesney. Our stay at the Chesney was far better than our stay in the Regent.

This hotel is perfect for the business traveler. It is located within Victoria Island, one of the best places to live and work within Lagos. The hotel offers free WiFi, it's not that fast though but usable. The hotel staff are always friendly and happy to assist. The kitchen could however do with some improvement. Firstly, most of the foods... More

Was glad to stay here, nice location, good food, pleasant staff and excellent rooms. A good business hotel if you're in Lagos and I wouldn't mind going back. Not too far from some good local bars and restaurants and we felt safe enough.
