Last week, the Chesney Hotel in Victoria Island announced a 25 per cent reduction in prices of its multiple-course buffet meals by treating in-house and walk-in guests to a special food tasting session. The boutique hotel on Saka Tinubu Street is renowned for a wide range of tasty meals that cut across Nigerian, continental and Chinese cuisine.
According to its business service manager, Malvin Okorafor, the reduction from N6000 to N4500 is to transfer value to customers and ensure that they get no better deal in the highbrow Victoria Island areaof Nigeria’s commercial capital. Besides the buffet, there is also an extensive a la carte menu that is always prepared fresh despite being served superfast.
This – among other qualities -has led to the hotel being recognised with awards like the Luxury Travel Guide Award for Africa and the Middle East, and the International Diamond Prize for Excellence in Quality, among others.
Some other features of Chesney include the wireless device on every table which enables guests make orders even waiters and barmen are out of sight. Guests also get to benefit from the air purifiers located on every floor of the hotel.
Another attractive quality of Chesney is the gallery-like hallway on every floor. The hallways have multiple mirrors and pictures of both Nigerian and global icons, giving them an eye-catching aesthetic appeal.
