“Best place in town, the only place in town”
Reviewed 19 November 2011

Everytime I stay there I hit my shins on the wooden bed frame. It's brings a laugh and a tear to my eyes. The only fault is breakfast, it ordinary to say the least. Dinner is excellent value and the quality is good. Beer is cold

We use the Monitel for a base when we visit Koumac to go fishing. The hotel has different grades of accommodation. We tend to opt for the cheapest as it is a fishing trip and we're not looking for luxury. It's quite Spartan but comfortable enough. It's air-conditioned and clean - more than adequate for our purposes.

The restaurant at the hotel is excellent and the staff are friendly, notwithstanding the very limited English spoken!

Room Tip: Due to the range of rooms, it is a good idea to get a good idea of what is available and what you wa...

Reviewed 27 August 2009

The hotel was difficult to find, with no signs in the main road and a tiny board in the side-street entrance.

The hotel had rooms of varying quality, from the basic level (room 109) we stayed in to a higher class in the next block, to better bungalows around the pool. We were initially allocated 104, on the side next to the adjoining Petrol Station, but the smell of gasoline caused us to change rooms.

There is one English repeating news channel on the TV, all other channels are in French. No kettle or coffee-making facilities. The beds were acceptable but a bit lumpy.
I gradually learned that New Caledonian hotel prices are simply very high; so by New Caledonian standards it was OK for XPF9,700 (AU$140, US$115). To me it seemed poor value for money for a room that would be considered 2* standard in Australia or the USA.

The restaurant was also expensive; we ordered pizza. A mistake; possibly the other foods were good.
