Big hotel in a secure compound. Reasonably old hotel although recently renovated. Nice pool area. Very good bistro/buffet and excellent buffet breakfast. Very expensive by Australian standards but PM is a very expensive city. Large double rooms.

This place is fine, if you understand what you are getting into in Moresby. The rooms are dingy and the carpets have been worn through, but the pool and the bar are nice, and the restaurant is fine. Check out the paintings across the street for a nice souvenir.

In a remote location like Port Moresby, Holiday Inn stands out. Located very close to the airport with free pick up and drop it is the best that you can ask for. I have stayed over 6 times in the last 12 months and always had pleasant experience. Being a veg, food is pretty hard but otherwise it is ok

We use to go the Holiday Inn all the time and the service was great. The recent renovations look great but there's too much happening with all the added units. The staff are not as attentive and the time it took for just a cup of tea and dessert was an unnecessary 45mins wait. Seriously disappointing. Not a good feeling... More

Everything clean and comfortable if slightly dated. Staff very good. The buffet was very good as well (I usually had four plates worth of food every time) and the ambience at the outside dining area, pool and bar were spot on. The hotel was quite busy. Finally, I felt very safe and secure, which is important for Port Moresby.

This was my first stay at Holiday Inn in Port Moresby. I used the Hotel due to the reputation of IHG brand and certain expectations from other stays in Holiday Inss (e.g. Sydney).

I stay here reasonably regularly for periods up to two weeks at a time. The rooms have been updated since I first visited in 2003/05. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed.

My daughter & I stayed for 2 nights, the beginning and ending of a Kokoda Track expedition. The rooms we had, while different each time, were adequate for our needs.
