Westwood hotel Ikoyi | Lagos hotel review

Westwood hotel Ikoyi | Lagos hotel review

Westwood was previously called Protea hotel, hence, some of the Marriott glory still exist. The bed is super comfy, the views are spectacular, the food is amazing....but major maintenance and improvements is required to restore the hotel back to it's past glory.

Let's dive in straight away...

PROS OF WESTWOOD HOTEL

The decent hotel comes with the following facilities;

  1. Conference rooms which sits up to 100 people and more, depending on the seating arrangement

  2. A waterside bar with a spectacular view of the Atlantic 

  3. An in-house restaurant

  4. A Shisha bar

  5. A business centre

  6. Luxury, deluxe and superior rooms

  7. Gymnasium

  8. Laundry service

  9. Complimentary breakfast and a'la carte option

DEAL MAKER

  1. As a frequent quest, you can negotiate room rates, or better put, you get discounts and upgrades. Westwood is considerate

  2. Upon request and on Sundays only, the hotel goes on a boat cruise with guests who indicate interest, for a little fee

  3. The rooms come with complimentary breakfast

  4. Everything you require for a stay, ranging from the business centre to restaurant and Shisha bar, are all within the hotel

  5. The rooms are reasonably spacious

CONS

  1. The hotel needs a little face-lift. It appears that some work has commenced with the dinning area and hopefully, it will extend to the rooms because some of the furniture (especially the curtains) are outdated

  2. My room had a lot of massive mosquitoes. For a hotel facing the lagoon, regular fumigation is necessary.

  3. The WiFi was almost non-existence during my stay

  4. The customer service was a bit too slow

WESTWOOD HOTEL ROOM RATES

  • Luxury rooms N80,000

  • Deluxe rooms N55,000

  • Superior rooms N40,000

For this review, I will do less talking and more picture overdose. Let's go!.

Final thoughts on Westwood Hotel Ikoyi

Will I recommend the hotel? Oh, YES. Overall, it's a decent hotel but needs a bit of improvements to make it better. I have left the pictures unedited to show a 'true and fair' view of the hotel.

One of my principles about hotels in Nigeria as always being that you get what you pay for. Hotel business is tough especially in an environment like ours, where doing business is difficult. For hotels that go the extra mile, the cost of that 'extra-mile' is reflected in the prices.

So my dear friends, in the range of premium hotels in Nigeria, I recommend Westwood. For more information about the hotel, please check out their website here 

Please drop your questions and suggestions in the comment section, I would love to hear from you.

Bless,

Margaret.
