This is my first trip to Nigeria and mainland Africa. Therefore, for my first trip it was imperative to get a safe and comfortable hotel. For a city hotel, The Wheatbaker was surprisingly small, but for the better! The service was personalized which staff ready to help when asked. It had all the amenities and was a nice clean safe haven after spending a full day in Lagos for business meetings. Overall, this is a very good clean hotel.
Value - In terms of value, I find the rates quite expensive for the size of the rooms. For the price I paid, I would have expected bigger rooms (I was in the standard room). While they had bigger rooms, their corporate rack rate for the standard rate (which is their entry-level room) was in the $400 range! However, the lack of decent business hotels in the Lagos area definitely puts supply and demand to the test.
Sleep Quality, Cleanliness - No complaints here, the rooms were impeccable. Slept like a baby
Security - This is something which I feel I should point out. At the hallway entrance leading to bedrooms, there is a security guard stationed there. Definitely helped to make me feel safe and secure.
Room Service - Clients should note that the restaurant closes at 10.30 p.m. My flight arrived late at night, so I couldn't use the restaurant as it was closed. Room service can be improved. The ham and cheese sandwich was ordinary and it took a long time to arrive.
Location - It is located in Ikoyi which is a very safe and convenient location, not too far away from the CBD.
