The Obudu Mountain Resort offers the leisure seeker and the conference goer a complete contrast. Not only in its temperate climate but also it’s exciting and different location. Nestling at the top of the mountain the Obudu Mountain Resort is situated on a plateau at 1576 metres above sea level on the Oshie Ridge of the Sankwala Mountains. The temperate climate offers a total contrast and welcome respite from Africa’s tropical heat. Idyllic tranquillity, beautiful scenery and breathtaking views make it ideal for the lone adventurer, families on reunion, young couple or holiday group. Obudu Mountain Resort is in Cross River State situated close to the border of Cameroon and is reached from Lagos by plane. Obudu Mountain Resort provides accommodation in the form of African round huts and chalets on stilts maximising the breathtaking views. Obudu Mountain Resort also offers self-contained suites varying in size from the 2-bedroomed Governor’s Lodge with its own lounge/dining room and kitchenette to the 20 Mountain Villas, each with three bedrooms, lounge, dining room, kitchenette and balcony. The food and beverage offering is found in the Terrace Restaurant and Bar with a cosy and relaxing atmosphere made complete by the blazing log fire. National and international cuisine is guaranteed to suit all tastes and the healthy appetites from a day’s nature walk or round of golf. The Obudu Mountain Resort offers a fully equipped gym, two floodlit tennis courts, a squash court and a natural swimming pool. Keen golfers can show their prowess on the hotel’s 9-hole golf course. The tours to view the magnificent scenery and spectacular birdlife are a must for the visitor to this part of the world and these tours can be taken on foot or on bicycle. For those who forgot to pack binoculars, the Canopy Walkway which is situated in the trees allows visitors thrilling close-ups of the birds in their natural habitat high above the ground. A major talking point for guests is Africa’s longest cable car system. At 4 kilometres, Obudu Mountain Resort cable car gently transfers guests (and their bags) from the tropical climate at the base of the mountain right to the hotel’s reception area on the mountainside which is often in the clouds and is accompanied by an invigorating drop in temperature. So, grab your hiking boots, pack your binoculars and come experience this unspoilt part of Africa and sleep easy knowing that all the comfort and top-class service which African Sun is famous for will be provided in your stay. Join us at the Obudu Mountain Resort and enjoy a different but still unforgettable experience.

"Poor stay"

A lot of things were just absent. We were told for example that we couldn't use the swimming pool or the cable car. The light was rationed, we spent the most part of the night in darkness. I know of better hotels in Lagos for that same rate. I was told you are just came back from strike that is why a lot of things are in disarray, I hope this is true.

"Overrated "

I did not really enjoy my stay at the hotel. I was expecting so much in terms of services rendered and the meal served at the hotel, but I was disappointed. There was no light almost throughout my stay at the hotel. The generator stays on for only 2 hours at night, also the place is almost fading away, there is nothing so attractive at the resort anymore.

"Terrible stay"

At least I have been to your famous mountain resort, everything else was rather infamous! We were a bunch of us that made the trip but every single person had to cut short their stay. We didn't mind making the hectic trip back, it was just so disappointing. The Food is tasteless and expensive, power was embarrassingly erratic. I don't think I have ever been to a more overpriced hotel.

"Awful stay"

Such a great hotel with a bad management! The scenery is just breathtaking and a number facilities are in place and functioning. The hotel has a number of issues I think the management are responsible for. Power isn't regular and environment gets very cold at night. There are heaters in the room but nothing to power it. Everyone was just shivering. If we knew before hand this was what our experience we could more conveniently have booked for a nearby hotel and come tour the place, use the cable car and enjoy the scenery. There isn't much to be bitter about though since I won't be using your hotel again.

My stay was wonderful, the environment was sparkling clean, customer service was excellent and the room was so comforting, although I did not like the fact that light was been rationed, I still had lots of fun and got value for my money.

"Good stay, could be better"

The television didn't contain channels for children. I had a real task keeping my children entertained, or should I say distracted? The lights too weren't so steady. I recall it went off a few times. It's unbelievable that one has to pay so much and not be guaranteed 24 hours power.

"Bad stay"

Midway through our stay we notified the hotel has been shut down due to issues the hotel was facing with the management and staff. We could not continue our stay, it was very disappointing that we had to leave after spending 2 of 5 nights.

"Good stay, could be better"

I had a relatively good stay at your hotel. I actually enjoyed my stay until we were informed about the strike today and alerted about a possible early check out. I had to leave the hotel very early, a bit disappointed. Nonetheless, the experience was nice.

"Serene resort.....World Class potential"

Obudu is a must visit resort located high up in the mountain range (about 1500m above sea level), giving it a temperate ambience. It is neat and serene with spacious suites at a good price.....plus complimentary breakfast. Unfortunately, it has some minuses. - no intercom

Great place, wonderful people with good manners, and the hotel site was beautiful to watch at night, its a great place to go for vacation but I just had to cut my trip because of the light issue. Your hotel management needs to work on making light better.

"Not Nice"

The rooms were not were not well taken care off at all, I had to go from one to the other before I had make a choice, the room was smelling and the toilet was not looking nice. We got to see power supply until its 9pm and its going off by midnight, while coming myself and family had so much expectation but we were very disappointed, I don't know may be its because its government hotel or bad management but I think you can do better.

"Not nice"

I think this resort has an issue with power supply, There was no light right from the check in day to the check out. I wasn't impressed at all because so many of their facilities too were not working. When I visited this resort some years back, Everything was in place, there was constant light, water and every other thing was okay, but it's the reverse now. There should be a proper renovation, I would really appreciate if this is done.

Staying your hotel was okay but the first was better than this one, when I visited the first time everything was really great, after having such a experience I decided to bring my family but I was a little disappointed, things are different now, first I noticed that the guys that show people around the place are currently more that their customer, the swimming pool is no longer functional or under renovation like we were told, my kids felt very bad because they came with their swimming suits, and the power supply is still the same like the last time, I will your management to do something about all this.

The service at your hotel was great, we were welcomed well and someone was waiting to carry our bag from the reception to our room, but I had a problem with the generator been turned off from 11pm till 7am without telling us, I understand that the environment is cool but its good to have power supply at night, and also its an expensive hotel so I was hoping that there will be breakfast on the hotel even if its just tea, Its a suggestion that I think your management should look into. All the same it was a nice experience.

This is my first time of been in this place and I am glad I chose here, the journey through my honeymoon was new every morning. Special thank to Hotels.ng, they made my stay possible with no trouble. I will always recommend you. The amazing thing is that I made this reservation on Tab and the result was so effective. I have been all smiles since then. My honeymoon was SUPERB!

"Beautiful environment"

The hotel is not a bad place at all, though i did not enjoy my self so much as the three meals were all buffet, i advice that the hotel should made available meal in the rooms, also, the hotel has no form of entertainment please the management should check into it.

Everyone knows"Obudu Mountain Resort" It is a nice and comfortable place,but when it comes to power supply,you need to work on it, and serving meals without beef or fish is so wrong.

The hotel did not meet up to my expectation. They don’t always have light during the day and bathroom had a problem. Generally the hotel is lacking proper maintenance. My stay was nothing to write about.

"I love the hotel"

The hotel is nice and I love the place. I wish there is flight from Calabar main city to Obudu. The distance is like 5 hours. Room needed to be properly maintained and Light was been rationed. Still, I enjoyed my stay here.

"Best Resort"

Obudu Mountain Resort is the best resort so far to me. Environment was lively throughout my stay. Service was excellent and the food tasted great. The only bad aspect was the electricity which was not available for 24 hours. Water was available throughout.

"Not Impressed."

My stay was not impressive; electricity was not available up to 24 hours, I was given a food without water. I had to request for it. Customer orientation needs to be improved upon. Service was not satisfactory.

"A Resort"

The hotel is indeed a resort and we enjoyed our stay but they really need to make provision for shuttle that can convey people from Obudu to the resort. I also noticed that they do put off their generator at night even when there is no light.

I had a nice time with my family. The hotel is a good relaxation place, there was no distraction and the environment was peaceful. Although the network in the area was poor and the laundry spoilt one of our clothes, but generally the cleanliness and comfort is good and quite encouraging.

Not a bad place at all.When I was at the resort,I and my Husband were given a room with which the bed was so large.It was somewhat uncomfortable,Though we later changed the room.I would advise that if you are to be at the resort,you should get all you need to eat before 11pm cos the restaurants at the resort closes very early(around 11pm).If you do not take anything at this time.You are on your own(O.Y.O)
