Stayed in this hotel for 1 night as we moved back into town from previous stay in Loloata Resort. Reasons for choosing this were because of its positive comments on Tripadvisor and reasonable room rate. Once we entered the metal gate of the hotel, it was a totally different atmosphere which we felt very safe and mistaken we were in... More

If you like marble and gold taps this isn't the place for you; mind you PNG may not the place for you either! The Raintree Lodge (not to be confused with the not yet opened all concrete Raintree Hotel) is something of an oasis in Moresby. It is secure, it's clean and the courtyard garden is an extravagant tropical garden... More

Although there are quite a few accommodation options in PNG's capital , none of them really cheap , Raintree Lodge is a well-kept secret hidden in the suburb of Boroko. Situated just off Bisini Parade and walking distance from what will be the new Bisini Sports Complex , venue for the July 2015 Pacific Games it is also a stones... More

One of the very nice things about this hotel is that standing out front of the hotel, one can see quite a variety of birds. I saw 12 in about an hour that I could identify. Some that I could not. The food here is ok but not great. The hotel ran out of beer on the 3rd night. Very... More

Stayed here for 7 days. The room is quite adequate. Very comfortable and big bed. Shower is awesome - huge! The restaurant serves superb food (takes a while). The staff is gracious, flexible and very helpful. The location is not great but otherwise highly recommended.

We stayed for 2 nights at the Raintree Lodge, a small property with pleasant courtyard garden in the Boroko region of Port Moresby. We were pleased with the spacious room and comfortable king size bed, and the bathroom was well appointed with an enormous shower. The A/C and TV worked well. Contrary to several other reviews we had free WiFi... More

We stayed for two nights before leaving PNG. It has all you need for comfort. Fridge and tea making facilities, and tv (Australian stations if I remember correctly). Very spacious showers. No hair dryer but you can ask to borrow one from reception. A restaurant on site. A bit of a way out of town but airport side and you... More

The hotel itself is small but the rooms are large and comfortably appointed; WiFi is extra but you pay for the time used so buy the 24 hour pass if you're staying a while. We did manage to walk around the neighbourhood with a security guard but it's discouraged. Restaurant food is limited but acceptable and the staff are friendly... More

Knowing Port Moresby, the Raintree Lodge is one of the more affordable places to stay near the centre of the city. The rooms were spacious and clean. A nice touch we noticed on arrival was that the staff had taken the courtesy of turning on our room aircons to pre-cool the rooms (- Port Moresby can get a bit hot... More
