The grounds and greenery are fantastic. There is an air of serenity and a gorgeous presentation of tropical flora. There are also activities like golf, squash, lawn tennis, table tennis and a pool. However, the rooms and accommodation are incredibly bad. Think years & years of caked grime and dirt. I understand the buildings and facilities are old. But it's not about age; it's about lack of maintenance and basic standards of cleanliness. The louvres no longer open properly as the hinges haven't been regularly oiled. There are also missing panes. The bedding has mold. The curtains don't close properly. The bathrooms are missing showerhead holders and drain stoppers. The shower heads are frayed. The crockery is mismatched. The rooms need a thorough industrial deep clean and then at least the bedding needs to be replaced and faulty/mismatched items replaced. Without that, I recommend staying somewhere else and just spending the day here to take long walks and enjoy the scenery. Getting here is easy. It's about 15 minutes from the train station. There's also Bolt (like Uber), so you can take a taxi.

This is the third time I have been up to the venue. Really fantastic place to relax in Nature with some interesting walking, great bird life and fantastic variety of plants and trees. I will continue to visit. As is the case in many places Nigeria maintenance of the rooms is poor. The place was built in 1970 and the furnishings show, Most rooms are missing something like towels, lamps, and where there are stoves - I think they are ornaments certainly can not use them. Food on the veranda really nice ( limited menu ) but best Pizza I have ever had with such friendly staff.

I was well received by the reception. Their hospitality was amazing. From the food to the services rendered. The 3 nights I had with my girlfriend in my suite was worth paying for. The WiFi service was excellent with power supply all night and day. You can give it a shot.

It's pathetic the calibre of staff that are allowed to manage such beautiful property. From the receptionist, you could feel the hostility down to the top. It's an appalling place as far as the attitude of the staffs are concerned. No respect from whoever towards a woman. They all feel they are too manly to be spoken to by a woman.

Just spent 5 nights here in D block with suite. I wouldn't know where else to stay in this area and it's safe and a lovely bit of countryside. The accommodation is very basic utility style and in.my opinion needs an overhaul.

This was my first visit to the hotel and I have to say impressed by how peaceful the hotel was.The venue offered a good connection with nature and had a good number of activities to make ones stay worth while. Rooms are very basic (more like a get up and go)atmosphere no thrills or feels. Some attention to detail is needed on the service end. But it is a place I will recommend and surely visit again.

The IITA hotel is a good place for lunch and dinner. I went there twice with friends and had a good time. I recommend this place for business and social meetings. The place offers both Nigerian and international dishes

Very green and serene environment, the IITA is definitely a place to visit. In terms of the hotel rooms, they are just average. Also, customer service isn't that great. The biggest plus - lot's of trees, beautiful lawns, serene environment, swimming pool, piano (my favourite), you can rent a bike and ride to the lake, and if you are lucky you may find some authorised IITA personnel fishing (only authorised personnel are allowed to fish from the lake).

The IITA is located in a green oasis. Everything is clean! The hotel has everything you need and the staff is super friendly. It shows you how Nigeria could and should look like. You can go running all over the area and I loved taking a walk around the lake. There is also a tennis court, a golf court, a gym, a swimming pool and a medical service if needed. The WiFi was also working very well. Although the food in the restaurant is bland! Except on Wednesday and on Friday when they serve suya.

The IITA Estate is a wonderful scientific research venue ...and a protected area for developmental agriculture and the forest environment (rapidly disappearing in Nigeria). The accommodation is mostly for visiting Scientists and students....., generally the facilities are good. The restaurant is very limited in terms of organisation and food. The rooms are clean and spacious ... the upper floors of Block C is good. The mattresses on the beds are similar concrete ...so additional padding is strongly recommended!!
