Occasionally the towels or milk was not replenished, but a call to reception fixed this. All rooms have fans and coolers. Fantastic view over the beach. However the road can be a bit... More

I stayed here only one night as the balcony door would not close, let alone lock. Also, the quality of the room - including bedding and bathroom - was poor for what I was paying. Accommodation in PNG is highly overpriced, and this hotel is a good example. Location is fine if you've no need to stay near the city... More

Stayed for a few nights, the service was friendly and the facilities were well maintained. The room was clean and everything worked well. By PoM standards this was a nice hotel. Had a separate bar area to watch sports which was a nice surprise. Hotel restaurant was quite expensive.

If a gym / fitness center is important to you - move on. All else is very good. I stayed here for 5 weeks while working in Moresby. Overall, the experience was great.

The hotel was a really nice stopover after a couple of weeks of village stays and highland guesthouses. The hotel itself has two parts - old part with rooms of differing amenities and views - some to the beach and some to inner courtyard with a pool. We were 7 people in different rooms and each of the rooms in... More

This a nice place right in front of the beach. A number of business people stay here and the rooms are ok. The restaurant is good too so I would say this above average. The price is a bit steep but then all places in this city are expensive. The location is right on the Zelda beach but not safe... More
