Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An unpleasant experience for me and my family. Terrible customer service. After the entire experience my siblings and I felt degraded. Orders were late. Expatriates were priorized over local customers. Ruined a good family gathering.

Best hotel in Lae, it is safe and secure, bar and pool area is very nice, run well, food is good. Prices are higher than expected however it is worth it with all things considered. Good for business meetings and a casual weekend lunch and beer. I would recommend

On Arrival, the staff were very friendly greeting with smiling faces. The rooms are well kept clean and comfortable. The environment is very natural with lots of birds to see. Room service was prompt and on the spot. The laundry was out and in with you knowing. I recommend the Lae International Hotel for your next trip to Rainy Lae. Enjoyed my stay.

The only decent hotel in the city of Lae. While booking was made, when we came to to check-in around 4pm, they will made us wait for few minutes as room was not ready. The hotel has a mini zoo having few birds and a tree kangaroo. Has wifi services and the hotel bar has Happy Hours. Food is okay.

The reservations team were terrible. They did not communicate with the front desk to confirm bookings and payments. They asked for proof of payment and then their own invoice! The restaurant service was also terrible, the wait time was over 1 hour for dinner. I used to like the place but its quality standard has deteriorated.

This establishment needs urgent maintenance and a decent cook (let’s leave a chef for now). My room’s aircon was noisy, the soap holder was broken off and there was no hot water for a shower. Dinner was a poor attempt for a rack of lamb that honestly tasted like boiled meat and gravy, eggs benedict was even worse. Unless you are using this hotel for location perhaps consider other options.

This was my first time to stay at the LIH. I was there on a business trip so only stayed for 1 night. The general ambience of the hotel was warm and welcoming when checking in. However I did get lost finding my way to the room because there was no porter to help me with my bag or show directions - strike 1. The room was nice, clean, spacious and comfortable, however the shower was the worst I've ever experienced in a hotel - very low pressure, the beads of water flew everywhere from the shower head, and the ceiling directly above the shower head was leaking pretty bad! - strike 2. Apart from that dinner was nice (I got to cook my salmon with garlic butter on a hot stone) and so was the complimentary mint chocolates and port wine. I wouldn't mind staying there again - although next time I'll definitely be sure to check the room before staying in it.

Nice place to enjoy 6 a meal in Lae even if you are not staying at the hotel. I have not stayed here, but often come to its on site restaurants The pizza's are very good. Prices are a little high, and at times they don't have the beer that you prefer in stock. Service is good. They have a nice buffet upstairs.

The customer service in this HOTEL sucks. Every thing is slow and in a snail pace. For example, the Hotel Reception is not connected with the Reservation, Bar, Restaurant, etc. If you have a hotel room reservation than, strangely, at this hotel, the appropriate time to check in would be from Mondays -Fridays & NOT on Weekends because the reception at the hotel for some un-known reasons cannot access the guest reservations. Furthermore, if you have some credits on your accounts with the hotel, be assured that they will likely to lie and mislead you with their calculations because of the outdated computer system they have. Should you wish to utilize the credit on foods and beverages, be prepared to pay some extra money during check-out because of the defunct system of calculation used by the hotel on guests credits. From personal experiences from other smaller, medium and large hotel in PNG, Lae International Hotel Services is poor. I hope the management do something about it.

Stayed at Lae inter for 3 days, after staying at other hotels in the city this one was a breath of fresh air! Excellent staff service in the reception, and restaurants, Food was outstanding especially the pizza’s, but the best was the Australian steak on the hot rock , recommend this for the price and size ! The room was clean and well maintained and plenty of coffee and tea available bed was very comfy also. Staff made my stay very memorable and would not hesitate to recommend to all travelers! Well done Lae international!
