Who we are
Patterson Dove Hospitality Limited is a management consultancy company incorporated under Nigerian Law to conduct business in the global hospitality industry. Patterson Dove has been established to provide professional and effective services to the growing hospitality industry. We have significant experience within the hospitality sector both internationally as well as in West Africa, specifically Nigeria.

Our standards of operations and success is maintained to the highest levels through ensuring we are on, or ahead, of the “information curve”, using the latest technology, augmented by the 60 plus years of combined hospitality business experience, to enable Patterson Dove Hospitality Limited to deliver to our clients, on time, every time.

We firmly believe in quality, not quantity, and thus PDHL will undertake our own in-house due diligence “match-maker” exercise to ensure that properties reach our standards both physically and commercially, prior to agreeing to provide our services.

This way we believe our clients will be satisfied that their “sister” properties within our portfolio will reflect well on their own establishments, resulting in increased corporate awareness and cross selling.
We are committed to the training and development of professionals within the hospitality sector, and will in the near future be developing a first class state of the art hotel school in Nigeria, dedicated specifically to providing world class training.
