Federal Palace ( Hotels & Casino ): "Great Business & Family Hotel"
Date: 25 July 2011
I booked this hotel for a Month stay in Lagos mainly based on its #1 rating by my friends. And it is a unique little gem, really.
We have stayed at many hotels over the years, often luxury ones with impeccable details and fantastic designs. Price-wise Federal Palace is on par with these better-class hotels. But the comparison fails: Federal Palace is a luxury place. Yet, in ten years from now, I’m sure we will still fondly remember the business trip & vacation we had there.
It is the perceptive and friendly service that makes it worthwhile staying in this small family-run hotel. The owners and staff are social at just the right level and they go to great length to make you feel at home. In the afternoon, the staff would bring out snacks and coffee for guests who had opted to spend the day in the shade of the palm trees in the little garden. At no charge. During the Birthday of my friend the duty manager arranged for Complimentary Cake and Red Wine at no cost. In the breakfast the chef accepted the request of making an Indian Dish on a daily basis and that was all we all were looking for. Indian Food in lagos .. wow .
This said, there is nothing wrong with the facilities. The room we had was spacious and pretty, the breakfast is good and the hotel is almost at the front of a Lagoon, so distance to the beach is limited but no access to beach. The garden may be small, but it’s a relaxing and quiet place – one where you really don’t mind spending an afternoon or two with a good book. Also the Club Facility is the best , with access to Lawn Tennis, Giant Swimming Pool ( with Life Guard) , and Mini 18 hole Golf Course absolutely free for Guest 24 X7 , with Gym Facility.
Federal Palace is known for Casino worldwide, and so did i found here, easy and friendly access to Casino , anytime of the day and no dress code at all , give you the feeling of being at home. Casino was a great Fun.
And as many people have written before. Federal Palace ( Hotels & Casino ) is a place you would definitely come back to and recommend to your friends. Thank you very much for making our stay so pleasant!!!
