I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights and it was pretty good. Really safe and professional hotel. Pool is immaculate. Staff are great and helpful and trustworthy. Food was not too bad as well, buffet on every night of the week plus other options.

This hotel is quite ok for the average traveller. The location is close to the airport but far from the city center. The rooms are ok and the restaurant is average. This place is far cheaper than Airways hotel and targets different types of visitors. I would say this is amongst the top 5 in the city.

Quality hotels are a rarity in PNG. Because of this there is little choice but to stay at the few and favoured and don't they know this when it comes to charging.

Things have improved since new owners took over- the quality of the rooms and service is so much better than years back. Of course, it remains expensive as there are still few hotels in Port Moresby. Day rates are available so you can crash to snatch a few hours of sleep after an overnight flight. The food at their restaurant...

I have stayed here before and the experience wasn't too bad. This time I was charged well in excess of 300 dollars for a very average experience. The room I had was dated and tired.
