Review of TCC Ogere Resort and Conference Centre | Resorts in Nigeria
I'm yet to find a well managed hotel chain in Nigeria like the MP hotels. The hotels include TCC Ogere, Epe Resort, Jubilee Chalet and Travel House. They serve top-notch hospitality and unmatched ambiance. So, if you have a penchant for personalised hotels, you might want to check out one these
You’ll also find many articles applauding TCC Ogere online and it appears that we all applaud similar things; the food, service and ambiance.
Seeking an escape from Lagos but with no plans to travel too far over a weekend, I took up the opportunity to enjoy a one-night stay at TCC Ogere, located at Lagos -Ibadan expressway. Here’s how it went
The resort was built over three decades ago but was initially used mostly by multinationals for trainings et al. Unfortunately, as you may expect, the property wasn't optimally utilised by these Companies, hence transferred back to MP Hotels management. What was most commendable is the maintenance of the place, considering we lack a healthy maintenance culture in Nigeria.
I arrived at the resort after a 90 minutes drive from Oniru. It was a pleasant drive and the resort was easy to locate. Actually, it is on the right side of the road. On entry into the resort, I couldn't believe such spacious facility existed outside Lagos. I felt like I had left the world behind as I stepped into the premises. Without further ado, I was checked in and taken to my suite at Ajayi block. The front-of-house staff was warm and friendly, and check-in was quick and seamless

THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY STAY AT TCC OGERE
Gosh! No........ you can't imagine my excitement when I discovered that there was a chapel within the resort. Wow!!! The building was gorgeous and purposefully designed as a place for worship. I kept singing "take me to church" by Hozier in my heart. It was a bit dusty, which appeared as though it hadn't been used in a long time.

FINAL THOUGHTS ON TCC OGERE RESORT
The resort is commedably spacious and can accomodate a large number of people at the same time
The WiFi was excellent
The food was really good
Depending on which side of the fence you are, some people will consider the drive from the city centre to Ogere to be tedious. I love driving and I love road trips, so this is not an issue for me, but thought to mention.
