"Bad stay"

The bathroom wasn't looking nice, it looked slightly dirty. The major issue though was the room I didn't have access to. I didn't have access to the locks and had to be accompanied by a staff every time I needed to open the door. Not having the locks personally to myself really makes me unsafe. I can't find a reason why this measure is in place, it's ridiculous.

"Okay"

My stay at Tinapa Lakeside Hotel was very okay nothing spectacular. I enjoyed my stay in a way at the hotel but was not very comfortable with the key-card because it gave me stress, it was always taking time to open the door and also the network in the hotel was generally bad and I think this should be fixed so as to attract more customers. Asides this, it is a very good hotel.

"Great"

Calabar is really beautiful and your hotel was great, beautiful site to walk through and great people around, the cab pick up was on time and relaxing, it was a short visit but very good, the customer service was great but there is no network when inside your hotel compound, both phone network and internet network. I know your hotel is far from the city but just work on getting good network.

"Not impressed"

The hotel zoo is poor, they have just two animals in their zoo, the food served were poor , the security is average as i noticed that the security personnel are retired soldiers, the management is poor. The staff generally are not motivated to do their jobs. The rooms were up to standard and clean.

"manageable"

I was taken to 4 different rooms before I finally settled for one. Basically the maintenance is poor and they need to pay more attention on it especially the furniture’s, they are obsolete

"Big name"

The hotel looks so unkempt. It has a bigger name than what they provided. The only good thing was that on Friday there was a buffer and also invited local cultural people to entertain us.

"Nice Location"

The room was not spacious but it is comfortable and attracting. The hotel is located at the main entrance of Calabar town which made it easily accessible for their guests.

"Enjoyment"

I enjoyed my stay here but they need to work on the hot water; when you press the hot water button it brings out cold water. The window in my room seemed permanently locked. They need to open it in case one needs a fresh.

"Good"

Their services were not good especially at night. I ordered for a drink, they came back after 3hours to say the drink had finished. The mattress wasn’t comfortable, I ordered for extra foam but it made little or no difference. Their environment, room and toilet were clean.

I went to the hotel with my colleague and we were given a VIP treatment. Their rooms were very spacious, neat, well arranged, a comfortable bed with nice fragrance emanating from the rest room. The environment was clean and atmosphere very conducive. The staffs were friendly, understanding and made sure we were all comfortable, they even took us round the hotel. Their food was superb and very delicious. We would definitely go back there.
