Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea
Reviewed 21 November 2015 via mobile

We came a bit early around 11:20 AM and asked the waitress if we can sit around until food is ready? She said no....I was shocked it sounds very unwelcoming to us. If they were not allowed us to sit on their tables and wait that means we have to leave....and this place is isolated it will take hours to...

Hello Estello Q Thank you for your comments. Its really disappointing to hear that one of our staff did not let you take a seat in the restaurant just because the buffet was nor ready for another 10 minutes. I have no words to explain as to why that happened. Please allow me to offer my sincere apologies for this...

I stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks and it was relative quiet and comfortable. This time I stayed in one of the suites. The suite had a kitchen, living room and very large bathroom and laundry. Which makes the small wardrobe stuck in the hall way seem a bit silly. The view over the airport is great and the...

Before heading off to explore the culture of the remote parts of PNG, it is definitely worth a stay at the Airways Hotel. The rooms are large, but not inspired in decoration, but the service is good and the restaurant has a great buffet breakfast in its rooftop restaurant. My only concern was the glass walls and door on the...

Hello Junebughiker Thank you for your comments. There are three different wings and all differ in decor. The hotel was designed by an architect and furnished by a qualified Interior decorator. The style is ageless and minimalistic. I am sorry to hear that you did not like it. Thank you pointing out the nightlight. We are having a look and...

Hello Monshazal11 Thank you for your comments. The facts are, we call the taxis all the time for our guests however can not guarantee the time they take to get to the hotel.

Dakota wing rooms are excellent, spacious, well appointed and very clean. Nespresso machine, good amenities and good bathroom fit out make this hotel significantly better than other Port Moresby hotels. Bar is good, food ok and pricing comparable to other hotels in the area.

We stayed here overnight before embarking on a cruise from Port Moresby. The first thing you notice is the very tight and comforting security with armed guards everywhere which says a lot for Port Moresby! The hotel is sprawling and looks nothing from the outside. Reception and lounges are comfortable. Our room had wooden slats instead of curtains, no bathroom...

Hello Peter.C Thank you for your comments. My apologies for the security guard who was whistling. The security is very important to us for our guests and staff. The Airways grounds are very spread out with a cricket pitch, walking and jogging tracks, recreation park, a mini super mart with pharmacy facilities and an international bank. We hope to see...

The Airways Hotel doesn’t look like much from the outside, but the hotel is well appointed on the inside. The common areas have a lot of artwork. The rooms are large and comfortable.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Airways Hotel is nestled into the mountainside in its own botanical gardens with stunning views from crystal clear waters of Bootless Bay to the majestic mountains of the Owen Stanley Ranges. While its surroundings are remarkable, the hotel's international reputation has been built on equally unique interiors, not to mention first-class service and a passionate attention to detail. The hotel offers finely appointed rooms, exquisite decor and world-class facilities in an environment that is calm, secure and spacious. You will also find one of Port Moresby's most popular social hubs, a place for business meetings and networking, and weekend family relaxation. While princes are always welcome, you don't have to be a prince to stay at Airways. From the moment you enter its gates, you'll know you have arrived at a place apart: a unique and unrivalled hotel where your convenience and comfort is our priority. Airways.
