For many that venture into states other than Lagos and Abuja, we can be skeptical of the availability of good facilities such as hotels. I recently visited Osogbo, a town in Osun state and whilst I was there, I stayed at Nike Guest House. Nike Guest House is a product from Chief Nike Davies-Okundaye, Nigeria’s internationally known and renowned female designer and artist. Below are visuals from my stay. Read to the end to see my honest thoughts on my stay.
A view of Nike Guest House located on Nike Art Gallery Avenue
Dancers from Nike’s Art & Culture performing in front of the main building at the guest house
Sitting pretty in front of the house
A view of the 2nd building at Nike Guest House
Communal living room in the centre of the main building (similar to moroccan riad style homes)
Another communal living room at the guest house
My room at the guest house. There were many other room options (none alike)
Dinner couldn’t be faulted. It was a buffet with so many delicious options (The chef did well :))
Breakfast with my tour group was equally great (both continental and african options). We all were stuffed! (my plate is not a true reflection of the options available.

A stunning view of the garden from the main building during breakfast, wouldn’t you agree?
The resident tortoise in the garden.
What I loved: The food, the evening entertainment and the beautiful garden (not to mention the amazing staff that were very helpful).
What I didn’t like: Well the room I took didn’t have a solid partition between the room and the bathroom. I didn’t mind but I guess its non-conventional.
Would I go back: If I visit Osogbo again, I will certainly visit. I would also recommend it to family and friends
Hope you enjoyed the write-up on Nike Guest House.
