Reviewed 7 October 2011

It was like stepping away from the madness of Lagos into a cocoon of serenity, luxury and contentment. I didn't want to leave.

I am a Business man and my business shuttles me between Abuja and Lagos very regularly. I had stayed at the Moorhouse, then referred to as the Sofitel a number of times during my lagos visits and then the rooms were in need of renovations.

It was therefore amazing to see the obvious changes in the hotel last week. The new gym is fabulous, spacious and the equipment very up to date. You can have aerobics as well. The Food in the restaurant remains the best in Lagos, great variety and tasteful!. The Bed!!! is fantastic and you need to experience it to know that sound sleep is achieveable in the city of Lagos. Definitely I am back at home with this hotel.

I visited this hotel (still within Sofitel franchise) 2 years back and was not so positivie about it: it was aging, rooms were not up to the sofitel standard,etc. It is now part og the "M collection" of Accor hotels (same group as Sofitel) and suprisingly standards went up big time: renovated rooms at big (more than in competing Southenr Sun), well furnished and with nice bathrooms. More importantly they are very quiet (which is a big plus in Lagos, believe me !): the hotel is nested in some green areas and the pool side is really lovely. there are no big roads next to the hotel hence no traffic, and the Air conditioner power blocs are not inside as in southern sun, so you won t be disturbed. Last, the food is very good with some French touch (like freshly baked bread and croisant in monring which are reallz tasty and not dry, fresh Avocado salads with shrimps and chicken,..). Net, if you look for a quiet place to relax after the hectic day in Lagos, it's perfect. If you prefer the busy atmosphere of large hotel with packed bar and restaurants, Southern sun is a better bet but I feel less good there. Regarding Value for money, hey this is Lagos - everywhere is overpriced for what you get but Sofitel is amongst the "acceptable" rates. There is more an more compeition (4 points by sheraton has good echoes) so hopefully prices will go down.. let's see...

I was really surprised by the Moorhouse. In a good way.
The Gym is well furnished.
the designed in my room was really nice, I felt like at home.
thats the reason why i took all my meals in my room.
Expect the last night, I took the diner at the restaurant. The food was excellent.
in few words I ll say it was a nice experience staying in Moorhouse former Sofitel.
I would definitely come back!

The Moorhouse is best avoided. Sky-high 5* rates for a 1-2 star quality hotel. My first room had broken A/C and the second had brown water running through the shower and sink. Rooms are drab and the amenities (gym, pool) aren't working.

I'm not a soft traveler - but this is the pits. Especially when they are charging $300+ a night for a room.

To their credit, the staff are trying reasonably hard. But Sofitel as a group brand should be ashamed of themselves here.

TheMoorhouse, General Manager at The Moorhouse Ikoyi Lagos - MGallery Collection, responded to this reviewResponded 15 March 2011

Dear Sir,

Thank you very much for this feedback on your last stay in our hotel; we appreciate your honest views and information shared and we want to sincerely apologize for all the discomfort you experienced during this stay with us.

The Brown water was due to a cabling accident in our water supply that day and this was fixed within a few hours. Clean water was restored to all the rooms thereafter. Our Gym and swimming pool has been undergoing some reconstruction and upgrade respectively and we are happy to inform you that the swimming pool has since been open (2 days ago precisely) and our fully refurbished and state of the art Gym has been opened for use this past weekend.

The Moorhouse hotel offers a variety of rooms in various categories and we are presently carrying out a lot of upgrade in the room type you stayed in. It would be our pleasure to welcome you again in our hotel to show you all the different activities going on to improve our guest stays.

I remain at your disposal should you desire to communicate with me and thank you for this opportunity to share.

My e-mail address is h2770-gm@accor.com

Thank you.

Eric Houot
General Manager
