If you are looking for a nice boutique hotel in the center of Victoria Island, Lagos you are in the right place. Comfortable rooms and very helpful hotel staff not mentioning the amazing 5 restaurants to dine in...

Stayed: February 2018, travelled with family

Having lived and grew up in Lagos as a child, I never used to book hotels so it was a total new experience for me and I didn't know what to expect.

We stayed at the Sheraton Hotel Ikeja during our duration in Lagos (6th Jan-18th -
I will review separately) and at the weekend we decided to go to Victoria Island and booked into Blowfish as recommended by a good old friend by the name of Folake...

We were 3 in total and booked 2 rooms.

The price was reasonable and the breakfast was simple but efficient. The staff were very attentive and helpful towards us, there was a guy in particular, who we called Dillan Whyte (resembled the heavy weight boxer but a slimmer/smaller version) who we would like to thank but unfortunately did not get his name at the time...he knows we called him Dillan!

The rooms could do with a little maintenance visit, light bulbs need replacing, little cracks here and there but was perfectly habitable for 2 nights. Don't be freaked out by the colour of the water, it is a Victoria Island thing....we used bottle water to brush our teeth :)

Best thing I'd say about the Hotel was the location....you are practically in the middle of everything that Victoria Island has to offer..Night and day spots, on this basis alone, it is worth booking again. Oh and the food menu is extensive but the quality is good too!

i went to the restaurant at pool side. Twenty minutes later, not even one person came to give the menu. While most were sitting 5 meters at the bar talking.
I cannot say about the menu.
But service is unacceptable!

I was a solo traveler in a business trip. the room was good and big. the breakfast was good. the hotel was well secured. the pool was very nice.
On other hand, there was no gym in the hotel. they are not providing an iron inside the room to force you using their laundry service.
In general, the hotel is good but needs more improvement

Enjoyed my stay. Also echo that staff were very help (Godwin, John, Chinedu, Victor) and others... Always going out of their way.
Grateful for the wide choice of cuisine - Thai, Indian, Italian etc... Made it real easy to stay in and still have choice.
Excellent internet
Special mention of Mr John the taxi service offered outside the hotel, for airport transfers and just getting around
Opportunity for improvement: consider replacing sets of bath towels. Now old tough and stained
