My sister and I stayed at the Protea in GRA for a week - March 2017. This was our second time at this hotel, due to its close proximity to our parents. The location, if you need to be on the mainland instead of the island, is great (we've stayed at the Wheatbaker in Ikoyi on previous visits but didn't...

This hotel has a nice, large, new-looking lobby area, restaurant and bar, with lots of places to sit and meet. There are security guards out front, and the hotel is surrounded by high walls and security wire. Vehicles are checked coming in. Very nice staff, if a bit chaotic at the front desk on our arrival. I found that the...

The hotel is very clean, classy and without pretension. It is a lovely oasis for a business lunch, dinner and a relaxation spot. The lobby, diner and gardens are well cared for with attentive but unobtrusive staff. The drinks and refreshments were lovely, I'll be back and we may stay overnight for a little break.
