We stayed at this hotel for one night only as a stopover awaiting flight back to Australia. My first impressions of the hotel were when i last stayed here almost ten years ago. It was a nice hotel back then and a few changes have taken place in the main foyer/lobby with new tiles replacing the aging timber floor. Staff...

Firstly I'd like to mention that at arrival the splendor of the Foyer and restaurant area is appealing and inviting. The staff, as always in the Solomons is welcoming and helpful. From there things started to slide. Our room on the other hand was disappointing. We clearly where housed in an older section of the hotel (that was misleading by...

The hotel staff are good and helpful. Hotel rooms have seen better days and are in an average to poor condition. They have updated some rooms but apparently they are only let to "important people". During our stay there was the heads of government for Pacific Islands meeting at Honiara. They closed down the restaurant to normal customers some days...

Where do I start. The Gardenview room was barely adequate. The beds were uncomfortable, it was grubby, the doors hardly opened & closed. The food at the western restaurant hardly edible and service was poor. They had a leader summit on during our stay with international and regional leaders in attendance daily. During this the guests could not even access...

Good location close to Yacht Club and the main drag. Has a very good restaurant and facilities. Good variety of meals and not over priced. The old section is comfortable with large rooms. The new section has excellent rooms. Very spacious with seperate bed and bath rooms and extremely well furnished.

A large group of us decided to try the Wednesday Buffet and were disappointed by how quick the prawns, oysters and lobster disappeared with no attempt by the restaurant to refill the trays so if you didn't get it first up you missed out but still got charged the same price. There was one plate of profiteroles and when they...

This is a nice, safe and comfortable hotel. Quite relaxing seaside behind restaurants and pool but not suited for swimming. Staff are friendly and try hard but can offer only so much in a jading environment. Price is high, wireless is poor and costly, fixed internet works but expensive. No Gym or any other facility for recreation. Ordinary pool. My...

There's really Nothing to say. Absolute extortion. Grubby, ugly old, tatty and expensive. There is mould growing where no mould should EVER grow. The food at any of the outlets is disappointing at best, revolting at worst. But it's a small pool in Honiara. Standards can be lowered.

Lets face it, in a town like Honiara, one is never going to find a luxury hotel. However, for one wanting a relatively clean place to stay with a reasonable room, this establishment fits the bill. The staff were very polite and helpful. The foyer area is certainly attractive, but the rooms don't meet this standard. Given there isn't really...

Garden view room - Went to sit on the double bed and it was really firm. Tried the single mattress and it was soft and comfortable. Informed staff that we were unhappy with the double bed - we were shown 2 other rooms - the first seemed ok, the second had a pungent smell of wet carpet and mould. Chose...
